For the benefit of Randy (who seems in dire need) and all the rest of you, Randy, Rinse, Repeat has started a new "How-To" feature.
In this installment, we offer some general advice on how to style one's hair.
NOTE-- this guide is for beginners - you cannot reasonably expect to read this guide and then grow your own Randy-Hair. It's simply not realistic. I mean, do you have a blog about your hair? I don't think so. Do you have a lucrative hair-product sponsorship deal? i think not.
Q: Does Randy?
A: When it comes to Randy's hair, certainly nothing is impossible.
Steps (courtesy of Wiki-How )
1. Ask all of the people you know that have great hair where they get it styled. Don't make it obvious you want to go there. In that case, they won't want to tell you.
(Now, obviously we're talking about randy here. I know it's hard to resist the urge to emulate Randy in all walks of life-- just remember, there's a downside. Do you *really* want to get your haircut in the morning?)
2. Flick through a cool magazine for inspiration on a great hairstyle. Cut out at least 2 pictures of the hairstyle you want and take it into your fab hairdresser! Go for a sweeping side fringe and textured layers. Make sure it's a big enough change for people to notice, otherwise it's a waste of money. Brave enough to dye your hair? Go for a color close to but not the same as your natural color. Go for streaks in the same color, but in different shades. For example, blonde streaks in light, medium and dark.
(Rather than flipping through a cool magazine, we suggest scrolling through the Randy pictures on this blog. In the course of a week, Randy sports more hairstyles than any hair magazine, plus there's a lot less androgeny! Make Randy your role model in terms of making a "big enough change for people to notice" - it's what defines his hair! Also - blond streaks? who else thinks Randy should try this?)
3. Now, the tools! You have a great cut now, but your hair is frizzy or just plain flat. To fix all these problems, you need a multistyling hair straightener (yes, straightener). The GHD straightener is the BOMB. It will straighten your hair in a few minutes! It will also help smooth down frizzies. Here's the right way to straighten: Wash your hair with your shampoo and conditioner, then add in your hair drying product. Then, when your hair is completely dry, straighten it and add your serum. If your hair is dead straight, you can use it to create texture and LIGHT waves. A good hair dryer is also needed. The ones with diffusers are the best, because they will leave your locks sleek and smooth.
(with all due respect to GHD straightener, which is apparently "the BOMB" i think you can skip this step. Also, any time you are talking about your hair and have to use the word "serum" you know things are getting entirely too serious. It should be obvious by now that no earthly technology could ever be responsible for Randy's hair. Clearly aliens were involved. or at least a Flowbee.)
4. One thing you always need is products. Firstly, a good serum. This baby will eliminate frizzies, smooth down hair, make your hair glossy, sleek and shiny - yes, all in one product! Also, a shampoo and conditioner for your specific hair type is a must-have. For example, if you have dry hair, get a shampoo and conditioner formed for dry hair. The same goes for frizzy, thin, damaged, or colored hair. Also, a product that you can put in your hair when you have just washed it is good. For example, a product that you can put in your hair before you blow dry and straighten it (LOREAL has great ones), or a product that you can put in your hair before blow drying it and texturising it. If your hair has a tendency to frizz up or rebel against straightening throughout the day, a heated styling brush is a great idea. Just brush your hair with it on your breaks for sleek hair all day, every day! If not, a boar-haired brush is great for detangling without the pain. Also a wide-toothed comb is a must-have, as is a parting comb. The parting comb is good because you can change the part in your hair to make sure your new style stays new. For this reason, it is a good idea to get a flexible style cut in.
(again - SERUM? We know you're committed to having Randy-Hair, but really now.. Do you really think that Randy and all those little lego men use SERUM to style their hair? Flexible Style? That's all Randy. Also, rumor has it that randy does indeed use a boar-haired brush -- he killed the boar himself!)
5. Style your hair naturally. It's easiest if you don't try and change your natural hair. If you have curly hair, style it, curly hair can be beautiful.
(is anyone else really bored with this guide? does anyone else feel that this has gone on too long? me too!)
