The Best Hairstyles for Long Hair (Men)

1.jpg

There’s nothing wrong with having an abundance of hair, and while men with ponytails are often met with scorn, guys with long hair are able to create a range of stylish and versatile looks. Check out our complete guide on long hairstyles for men.

Man Bun

The sheer amount of man buns around have proven that this twisted knot isn’t just a phase or a passing trend, it’s definitely here to stay and it’s fast become a staple of a stylish guy. The man bun gets better because it’s not just one set hair style, there are multiple ways to rock it.

Being one of the easiest updos for long hair, the style can be adapted depending on how comfortable you want your hair to feel, how much time you’re willing to put in, and how far you’re willing to push the boundaries.

Ponytail

This is one of the most common styles for people with long hair – a simple male ponytail. This is really for everybody, male and female of all backgrounds and cultures. Rocking this style at some point is a must for anybody with lengthy hair. This might be the original way to manage long hair as it is so easy to achieve and it is really effective.

Perm Curl

Long curly hair for men is a style that’s ideal for men with thick locks, as you can pretty much let your hair do what it wants. This really is one of the best long hairstyles for men with thick hair, as the longer length will help to weigh down your curls, keeping them defined and less likely to turn frizzy. A little gel or wax can keep your curls in place, and a good moisturising shampoo will maintain your hair’s health and keep it sleek and manageable.

Shoulder Length

Men’s shoulder length hairstyles don’t have to be tousled hipster manes or braided masterpieces that require constant styling. You can easily things relaxed with a simple side-swept look that allows your hair to fall naturally. With this style, it’s best to avoid anything that will take away from the natural look, so try not to go for anything like a middle parting, which will add a rigid, structured finish.

Extra Long Hair

So we’ve shown you some classic hairstyles for men with long hair, but sometimes nothing can beat just letting your hair grow out. Long hair can really make a statement, and, as long as it’s properly taken care of, won’t look messy or unkempt. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that men’s long hairstyles can look a little blunt if they’re dead straight, and it’s best to add some texture and waves to your locks if you’re going for this style. 

A pretty face deserves a beautiful smile

Liza Soberano for GAOC

Liza Soberano—Hope Elizabeth Soberano in real life—has indeed come along way from her early and humble showbiz beginnings to her present stature as one of the most bankable young actresses.

Apart from innate acting abilities, Liza has one of the prettiest faces in the entertainment industry and has a beautiful smile that easily charms everyone she meets. Helping Liza maintain that beautiful smile for several years now is Dr. Steve Mark Gan of GAOC—the Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center, which has consistently raised the standards of dental practice in the country. GAOC has been Liza’s dental clinic of choice from the first day she sought its services.

“We’re very happy with the trust and love that Liza Soberano has shown the GAOC family all these years,” says Dr. Gan. “In return, we take care of her dental needs with the kind of love, expertise, and professionalism that only we can offer”.

Born and raised in California to a Filipino father and an American mother, Liza moved to Manila at age 12 and was soon receiving offers for print ad modelling stints. After she was spotted by a talent scout, she made a series of television appearances and did small movie roles, until her breakout role in the hit 2014 television series Forevermore, which became her stepping stone to stardom. Paired for the first time with Enrique Gil, the new love team became a big hit and was dubbed “LizQuen”.

With her growing popularity, Liza has crossed over to the movies. After last year’s certified box office hit My Ex and Whys, she will be the next Darna in the popular komiks franchise’s latest adaptation.

Things are indeed looking up for Liza Soberano, who was named in one survey as the most beautiful face in the world, and she is relying on GAOC to keep her smile bright and sunny as she pursues her flourishing acting career.

“I feel I found my soulmate.”

This was Inigo Pascual’s telling declaration when asked about the status of his relationship with his “special someone” Maris Racal.

“Right now we’re working together, and I’m working as well. If we have something na, we don’t have to force it. If there’s something between us, eh ‘di there’s something between us. Pero we don’t have to force things,” he told PEP.

Pascual noted that they are passionate about the same things when it comes to their career.

“’Yun ang masaya, I was able to share my passion. ‘Yun na lang ang masasabi kong label na lang namin. I feel I am talking to myself when I’m with her, I feel I found my soulmate. Siguro ‘yun ang label ko, soulmate,” he said.

Nonetheless, Pascual categorically stated that he and Racal are not yet a couple.

“We’re not in a relationship, but definitely, I see her as very, very special to me. Very dear to me as a person, as a friend. Someone that I am able to share my passion. Sobra ko siyang naa-appreciate,” he said.

With how things are going for the both of them, Pascual said he doesn’t want to hinder Racal’s growth as an artist.

“She’s on fire right now. Lahat ginagawa niya. She’s on TV, she’s in movies, she’s in the music industry now, she’s number one on iTunes, and I don’t want to be that person that kinda hinders, or kinda blocks that pathway for her,” he said.

Zayn Malik says he’s overcome his anxiety and is rehearsing to play live

“I think my confidence has grown in the last year and a half.”

Zayn Malik has a full band in place and is preparing to perform live as a solo act. The former One Direction member spoke to BBC Radio 1 about dealing with the anxiety that meant he barely performed live after releasing his first solo album. He said that now his second album is due for release, he’s rehearsing and feels ready to play live.

“I’m excited to see what people think of it,” he told host Nick Grishaw of his new album. “I think my confidence has grown in the last year and a half. It’s a bit different to my last record in terms of, it’s matured.”

Zayn also admitted that he doesn’t feel he approached solo life in the right way first time around. “I didn’t know what was going on for a while,” he explained. “I was just putting out a record and not really being as prominent as I wanted to be. But this time around I feel like I am more confident and I really believe in what’s going on, so I want to convey that to my fans.”

Dylan Sprouse Shares That He & Cole Are Working Together, Just Not In The Way You Think

cole-and-dylan-sprouse--1507216996-list-handheld-0

Dylan Sprouse and twin brother Cole Sprouse might not be working together on screen together at the moment, but that doesn’t mean they’re not working together at all.

“The misconception is that we don’t work together now, but we actually very much do, but in a very different way,” the 25-year-old actor shared in his new interview with MTV.

He continues, “Cole and I proofread and bounce ideas off each other 24/7. It doesn’t ever really stop, whether or not it’s an audition tape or tweet or reading my script and [him] telling me what you think of this character.”

Then again, Dylan isn’t opposed to working with Cole on screen again one day. As they’ve both stated before, it has to be a “really, really, really has to be a cool project.”

“It’s easy to stereotype twins into any role,” Dylan adds. “There’s not a lot of great twin roles written and often times when there are, they’re given to a single actor who green screens themselves into both places.

 

90’s Fashion Trends for Girls That Are Back In 2018

10-90s-Fashion-Trends-That-Are-Back-In-2017-ss.jpg

Let’s face it, In the 90s we did not have a sense of style, let alone being fashionistas. Our clothes were always our mother’s choice, and we would wear whatever she felt was cool and fashionable. It was all good, except they were not fashionable according to me. But, when you look at your throwback pictures and skim through the latest fashion diaries, you start to see a resemblance. Don’t you? It was not that bad after all. Sorry, mom! Once a memory, always a memory.

Some fashion trends are so relatable and nostalgic that you can pick it up from where you left. Yes, so the 90s fashion trends are slowly making a comeback. If you have not heard yet, it is the next big thing. But again, they have all got a makeover to match the current fashion scene. Anyway, brace yourself for a fashionable trip down the memory lane. You will love it, and you will learn (hopefully)!

90s Fashion Trends Female – 20 Outfit Ideas

 1. Leather Jackets Are Here To Stay

1.-Leather-Jackets-Are-Here-To-Stay.jpg

You know how much you can do with one well- fitted leather jacket? I know it is expensive, but with proper care, it can last you a few decades. Perhaps till the fashion fades and comes back for second innings? No, really! It also goes with almost anything and everything. That’s why this style has been there forever now and is also coming back in case you thought it is a passe.

2. Dungarees, Dearest!

2.-Dungarees-Dearest.jpg

Be it short or long, Dungarees if styled well are hottest pieces of clothing you can wear. Not just overalls, but stars like Bella Hadid are even bringing back those denim dresses, and they look sexier than ever. It did wane into the horizon a little, but it’s on its path to resurrection in the fashion world with a bang!

 3. Mommy Jeans Are Getting Out, And It’s About Time

3.-Mommy-Jeans-Are-Getting-Out-And-It’s-About-Time.jpg

The millennials are all sulking about this, and do not relate to the excitement around the revival of the mommy jeans, but we are glad and think it’s about time. Thanks to Britney and other pop stars, the mom jeans slowly disappeared from the nineties fashion wardrobe, malls, and brands. The style guides suddenly stopped mentioning these, and they became extinct. And, that’s why we have to explain what this is about now. Fine – they were just a pair of airy, comfortable, cotton denim pants that sat beautifully at the waist and were out near the thighs (unlike the painfully tight ones). There are a lot of variations, but this breathable pair of trousers is something we all need, and it’s time they were revived, at least as an option to some of us.

4. Round Glasses – A Radical Comeback

4.-Round-Glasses-A-Radical-Comeback.jpg

What was once considered goofy and nerdy, has now made a radical comeback. It first hit the sunglasses segment and is now a rage with prescription glasses too. If you want to slowly get into the 90s groove, without being too out there, then you should try the round glasses look. Plus, it’s a fad right now! You won’t stick out like a sore thumb, but you will get a thumbs up from the fashion police.

5. Denim Skirt – Thank God For Them

5.-Denim-Skirt-Thank-God-For-Them.jpg

Wow! The very sound of it makes me nostalgic. From the flower printed ones to the front slit, buttoned, A-line, distressed, midi and polka dots, we were spoilt for choice. One good thing with denim skirts was the fact that it would suit anyone irrespective of the age, personality or body type. I can’t remember what went wrong back then, but they were taken away just like that. But, we are just so thankful that these are coming back slowly but surely. So, if you’ve seen a denim skirt and are in two minds, just go for it already!

 6. Denim Jacket/Shirt – Can Never Get Enough Of It

6.-Denim-JacketShirt-Can-Never-Get-Enough-Of-It.jpg

If I ever make a list of essentials for a capsule wardrobe, the denim jacket will make it to the list. They were once considered dated, but they have been back for a while now. It goes with everything and anything, works perfectly for layering, and you can use it almost throughout the year. Sleeveless, waistcoat or full hands, you name it—each of them has a charm and style. A style we can never get enough of!

 7. Flannel Shirt – Proves What Goes Around, Comes Around

7.-Flannel-Shirt-Proves-What-Goes-Around-Comes-Around.jpg

From frayed jeans to flannel shirts they are all coming back in full circle. Turns out that fashion works in a two-decade cycle or something. Shirts that were considered a relic of the bygone era are now all over the place. You can wear these shirts either as a layer over a tank or just as a regular shirt, or maybe just tie it around the waist. Yes, tying it around the waist, is back in vogue too.

 8. Combat Boots, Wait They Are THE Doc Martens

8.-Combat-Boots-Wait-They-Are-THE-Doc-Martens.jpg

There was a time in fashion when men and women dressed up similarly, more like the fashion grunge movement. That’s how the heavy-duty combat boots started, and Doc Martens came into existence and swept the fashion world. You might relate to Doc Martens if you’re a millennial. Otherwise, you know what I mean when I say combat boots, don’t you? For a while, it felt a little ridiculous to wear boots with slip dresses, skirts, jeans and everything. But, trust me if you can carry it off the way it should be, you will look funky, stylish, chic and comfortable.

 9. Big/Loose Shirt – Makes Us Happy

9.-BigLoose-Shirt-Makes-Us-Happy.jpg

Over the last decade or so, it was a sin to wear anything loose. You are known to be stylish only when you wear clothes that are tight and body hugging. It was not the case if you rewind ten years, say the 90s. Loose shirts, boyfriend T-shirts were oh-so-comfortable and stylish. Cut to now; it’s an in thing again. Thank god this trend has made a comeback. How can I not wear them? How can we survive without these? Anyway, if this is your style, you don’t have to feel awkward or old school anymore, #because it makes us happy plus it’s NOW fashionable by all means.

 10. Chokers Have Taken Over

10.-Chokers-Have-Taken-Over.jpg

It started with Kendall, Kylie and Gigi sporting these chokers on Instagram; you refresh the feed, and the trend is back. That’s how quick the turnaround time was. And, of Course, I’m excited, aren’t you? You can practically pair them with anything. Velvet, lace, pearl, embellished, etc., your options are unlimited.

 11. Crop Tops – Never Go Back Again!

11.-Crop-Tops-Never-Go-Back-Again.jpg

Like they say fashion changes, but style endures. Trends come and go all the time; while we are glad some are gone, we are ecstatic that a few good ones are back. The crop top is one of those trends that found its way from where it started and this time it’s gotten better. Wear them with jeans, shorts, maxi skirts, tracks, and everything you can think of pairing them with. From the runway to everyday wearables, it is approved.

12. Matching Sets Are Today’s Monochromes

12.-Matching-Sets-Are-Today’s-Monochromes.jpg

A sleek style then, an elegant style now. They are replacing the crazy neons and patterned sets, but thank god those are gone anyway. With the matching sets, there is a lot you can do—matching crop top and skirt set, jacket and trouser, etc.

 13. High-Waist Jeans Are Up On The Shelves

13.-High-Waist-Jeans-Are-Up-On-The-Shelves.jpg

We all thought we grew out of the high-waist jeans once the low cut trend caught up. We agree that they were not the best looking pants and needed some overhaul. So it looks like someone heard—they are refurbished on par with today’s trends.

14. Backpacks Are Back

14.-Backpacks-Are-Back.jpg

When the 90s trend was initially picking up, it felt like a very temporary thing and a fad that will eventually fade. Surprisingly that’s not the case, and the designers are only expanding horizons. One such trend was the backpacks that felt so old school, but now brands like Chanel, Burberry, and many other big brands have signed up to this style. And, you should too.

15. Brown Lipstick Is For Everyone

15.-Brown-Lipstick-Is-For-Everyone.jpg

A lip color that sums up the nineties style statement in two words—goth and grunge! Thanks to the Kardashians for bringing the style back and this time it’s for everyone (unlike old times). It was considered inappropriate, unsuitable, dark or gothic to wear brown lipstick, but thanks to the K sisters for changing that. And, before we know big names signed up to release their version of the brown lipstick.

 16. Athleisure – Track Pants Have A New Name

16.-Athleisure-Track-Pants-Have-A-New-Name.jpg

I wonder, why we even went off the trend for a while? What is there to not like about these? They are comfortable, chic and easy breezy. But I get it; it is a thin line between comfort and sloppy dressing. Like everything else, there is a method to this madness too; and that’s why brands have launched track pants in so many variants, you cannot help but drool. This trend is back for good and is not going away this time. Don’t you worry!

 17. Printed Separates Found Their Way Into Fashion Again

17.-Printed-Separates-Found-Their-Way-Into-Fashion-Again.jpg

Printed separates were big in the 90s, and that seems to be the case now too. A lot of celebrities are seen sporting this style, and we should all take the lead. Whatyasay?

 18. Bob And Bangs Have Resurfaced

18.-Bob-And-Bangs-Have-Resurfaced.jpg

Bangs and Bob make us feel nostalgic because that’s one hairstyle that probably each of us had growing up.

 19. Neon Colors Are Not Retro Anymore

19.-Neon-Colors-Are-Not-Retro-Anymore.jpg

One more 90s fashion trend that is back after a hiatus and one that is not considered retro anymore. I mean, if you dress up in flashy neon colors from head to toe, yes. But, that’s why we take some style inspiration from our stars and learn to amp up outfits with neon accents. Boots, lipstick, top, tracks, shoes, etc. are cool opportunities.

 20. Caption/Bands T-Shirts Are Timeless

20.-CaptionBands-T-Shirts-Are-Timeless.jpg

Caption T-shirts are a rage like no other. No wonder then that even your favorite brands are banking on band names as well. They are back in vogue.

Model Watch: Chedi Gusay, Nobody Can Bring This Good Girl Down

c.jpg

The head-turner from Laguna is making her way to the top! From pageants to edorsements, Fil-Spanish Chariss Jedidiah Gusay or better known as Chedi Gusay proves that she got what it takes to be the next big thing.

She’s a consistent honor student as she valued education for she wants to be successful and when she wants it, she knows she’ll get it. Her eagerness and determination is her key towards achieving what she imagines. Growing up, she always wanted to be a model or a celebrity and we surely know that one day she’ll be it.

When she was a kid, she became a lead role in a musical play and since then music has become her passion. Then she joined several pageants and the fire in her starts to ignite, she always believe that there is a beauty queen inside of her which is why she is working hard to prove herself.

She had won multiple titles such as Bb. Santa Cruz Laguna 2016, Miss Silka-Laguna 2016, Mutya ng Liliw 2017, Queen of Universities-Calabarzon 2017 and Miss Republic of the Philippines 2018. Now she’s into modeling and had several endorsements such as Boardwalk and Metrobank’s Yazz Card. We might see her at fashion shows as she is also a ramp model. She is also trying out acting as she appeared on some TV Shows in ABS-CBN. More than the glitz and the glam, there is a deeper reason as to why she’s doing all of it. She’s the bread winner of her family and she also has to  support her studies because her father was diagnosed with a kidney disease.

ccccccccccccc.jpg

But not all good things were happening as it came with a price, her strength was tested when she had an issue with some Kathniel fans when she start posting pictures of her and Teen King Daniel Padilla. Bashers all over her social media accounts starting to destroy and sent her hate messages, but she remained calm and silent as she knows that’s the best thing to do. Instead, she focuses more on organizing outreach programs to help the homeless and out of school youth. She conducts fund-raising to raise money so she and her colleagues can donate simple things such as school supplies. She also promotes fitness as she conducts Zumba sessions. She’s really a beauty with a purpose!

Right now, she’s into travelling. She says she love the beaches as it makes her heart and mind serene. She’s also into travel vlogging and does make-up tutorial so that she can share  the places she’s been to and be able to share her makeup tips. She also added, that she wants to inspire people to not be afraid of taking risks and to just take everything positively.

ccccccccccc.jpg

We asked her about her personal style and she say she’s experimental and loves to try new things. She’s innovative and expressive as she wants to grow and develop as time goes. Dogs are her best friend and even thou she got that perfect body she is still a foodie and loves to try new foods to every place she’s been in.
