The LOOK: Going Long with Style

Monday, April 16, 2012

 

Long hair is fantastic, but getting there can be tricky. Here's a smart way to look good while growing long.

He was the lead hair stylist on Sex and the City 2, he made Anne Hathaway fabulous on film, and he's GoLocalProv's weekly style expert. Frank Barbosa, the Newport-based celebrity stylist, brings red carpet perspective to hair, makeup, and overall style.

Feeling like you're ready to go long this summer, but starting short? Or have you already been growing out, and you're getting impatient?

Help is here: just blend and extend.

Because face it--you can only wear hats and head scarves for so many days during the in-between stage. Why not turn to hair extensions to get you through those not so good hair day months ahead while growing out a short trendy cut? Here are some tips for smoother sailing through the grow-out process.

 

1. Find the best

First off, set out on the hunt for the best hair extender in your area. There's nothing worse than a bad extension (you're better off with last year's hat than a bad hair extension!). 

2. Think removable

Be prepared: there are many types of hair extensions. My professional advice is if you are wanting to grow your hair out, go with the most healthiest method--removable extensions. There are a couple different versions of these, and they go far beyond the clip-on cheapies that you can aquire from your local retailer.

3. Talk to your stylst

While you're on the hunt for your expert, let your local stylist in on what you learn. You might teach her or him a thing or too about the latest in extensions... and they might get up to speed for the next time around!

From Sex and the City 2 to Rachel Getting Married, from The Sorcerer's Apprentice to Bride Wars, Frank Barbosa has styled some of the biggest celebrities in film, TV, and theater. He's just finished styling on location alongside film stylist Alan D'Angerio on the film, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, starring Jennifer Garner. He's been in the industry for 17 years, moving from hip neighborhoods in Chicago, to Boston's Newbury St, to Bellevue Avenue in Newport. He maintains that his real passion, though, is being behind a salon chair at Frank Antonio Hair and Makeup in Newport.
