Kid's fashion blogs

My little guy is only 5, but he's already super fussy about he wants to wear. He wants to look like a 'cool dude'. It's so cute how much effort he puts into his outfits, so I love taking photos to share them online. This blog has some of his photos, but it also includes some other blogs and fashion labels that we find super cool. I have also decided to include some tips for parent photographers on how to take good photos of kids as well. It should be useful for other new bloggers still working out how to make images of kids' fashion look great.

A Guide To Hairbrushes

It doesn't matter how much you spend on trips to the hairdressers and expensive hair-care products; if you don't use the right brush on your locks, you could be damaging your hair or ruining your expensive cut.  There are lots of different shapes and sizes of brushes on offer from your local hairdressing supplies shop, but how do you know which one to use?  Here's a quick guide.

Paddle

A paddle brush is designed for use on long, straight hair to produce a smooth, sleek finish.  The brush has a flat, wide surface area with widely spaced bristles, which makes it perfect for finishing off hair that's been straightened.  You can also use a paddle brush to dry your hair so that it's straight, before running the straighteners over it to finish it off.  

Round

If you want to create body and volume in your hair, you should choose a round brush.  Round brushes come in many different sizes; for tighter curls or if you have short hair, choose a smaller-barrelled brush, and for achieving volume without curls, choose a larger one.  

Teaser

Teaser brushes are used for creating texture, usually for up-do styles and feature a pointed handle that you can use for making sections in your hair.  If you have very fine or brittle hair, you should avoid using this style of brush, as it can cause damage.  

Wide-toothed comb

A wide-toothed comb should be used on long hair when the hair is wet.  This allows you to comb through your hair without breaking it.  Always begin combing your hair from the ends to the roots to avoid damage.  

Detangler

If your hair tends to become easily knotted and tangled, you'll benefit from using a detangling brush.  You can use this style of brush on dry or wet hair without fear of causing breakage.

Whichever style of brush you choose, if possible, always choose one that has natural bristles or soft nylon bristles, rather than plastic; combs should either be made from smooth resin or natural wood.  Although brushes with natural materials are more expensive to buy, they last longer and are much kinder to your hair.

In conclusion

In order to keep your hair in great condition, it's important that you use the correct style of brush.  For more information and advice on what type of brush would suit your hair best, ask your hairdresser next time you call in for a trim or restyle.
