So long straight. Heave-ho that hair-dryer. After seasons of coaxing hair into super straightness, wavy hair -- more tousled than tame -- is today's must-have trend. Hair made interesting with piecey waves and smooth, shiny curls is the look on the street, and now favored by the celebrity set. Curls...waves...big hair -- it's so much sexier than straight. Celebrities are all on board with the bodacious hair look.
As their beauty benefits transcend trends, bangs are a style perennial. Those always popular, face-framing fringes can enhance a long or narrow face structure, hide forehead lines or a large forehead, dramatize your eyes -- even make you look younger. Some of our clients report they just couldn't live without bangs! Yet other people regret them as soon as they are cut. Here are some guidelines for beautiful bangs to help you decide if they're right for you.
Having a bit of that "first time" anxiety? The truth is, having your hair colored for the first time can be nerve-racking. With so many options and variations, how can you end up with the look you want? The key is to communicate with your colorist before he starts mixing the color. Explain -- or show him a photo of -- the look you're after so he can outline the options for getting there. To make sure the two of you are speaking the same language, it helps to know the lingo.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
