Hair bow

Hair bows are one of those hairstyles for long hair that tend to be quite polarizing: women either love the idea of sporting the look or they simply don’t see themselves choosing the hair bow look. While the idea of a hair bow like the one Lady Gaga sported a while back can indeed be intimating for many women, when styled right, the hair bow can serve as a gorgeous accessory for women of different ages. There are some interesting variations that are cute without being over the top and a bow half updo hairstyle is one of the best examples.

How to:

1-Start by brushing your hair to eliminate any tangles or knots that might hinder the results. Then use your hands to grab a hair section on each side of the head, doing your best to make them as equal as possible. Depending on the effect you’re looking for, you can adjust the thickness of the strands. The bigger the hair sections are, the bigger the bow will be.

2-The next step is to use a hair elastic to tie the two hair section without pulling the ends through the elastic, in order to create a loop. Next, divide the loop in two relatively equal sections so that two smaller loops are created.

Then, secure one loop with a barrette and use your fingers to give volume by spreading out the other section. Once you get the desired shape, insert two bobby pins underneath the hair section to secure your work. One bobby pin should be inserted from top to bottom while the other should be inserted in the opposite way – from bottom to top. Repeat the process on the other side to finish the bow shape.

3-Hiding the remaining hair and picking up ends of the ponytail chicly wrapping them around the elastic and securing them bobby pins underneath are the final touches of creating a stylish bow half updo.

Mansoor has worked and shared his expertise with leading brands which include,FTV, GHD and TRESemmé. His client list includes a host of South African celebrities as well as world famous Indian film actress, Shilpa Shetty.

Rozziki recently interviewed the talented Mansoor .

Q. What made you want to follow a career as a stylist? How did you get started?

A. I’ve always been a creative,outgoing person,so I was either going to pursue a career in interior design, graphic design, or becoming a stylist.
I started my career as an apprentice at Rolf Offermann , Durban and was with the Rolf Offermann family for 7 years .These were  the best days of my career. I then relocated to Johannesburg.

Q. How has the journey been up until now?

A. My journey so far in my career has been a dream come true. Everyday is a new day and better than the previous day. Being the brand ambassador for TRESemme for more than 3 years, has opened so many doors and opportunities for me, making my career even more exciting.

I have met so many different people from all over the world,whom I have remained good friends with up until this day.

Q. What is your typical week like?

A. My typical week would  depend on my schedule,which could require me being on shoot for television or magazine,or bonding with my clients. I do make a priority of spending as much time with with my family and close friends.

Q You have worked with local and international celebrities, what was the experience been like?

A. Working with international and local celebrities has been an amazing experience. It is something that one has to experience as it’s a feeling you cant describe.

Q. If there was one celebrity you could style and was given the opportunity, who would it be and why?

A. It would be Charlize Theron as she is South African and has the look of an ideal  TRESemmé girl.

Q.Do you follow trends? Where do you seek inspiration?

A. I think being in a creative field of work,one has to keep up to date with the latest trends,using it as an inspiration to create my own individual trend.

What inspires me is nature;a shape of a tree, a flower, or a waterfall and by just lookin at it, I can create a hairstyle or a hair colouring technique in my head . It actually get my creative juices flowing.

Q. What advice would you give someone wanting to pursue your job/ career?

A. In my honest opinion, if one feels that they want to pursue being a hairstylist,they should start at the bottom and work their way up the ladder as  that’s the only way one can appreciate their achievement when they have reached the top.

Being a hairstylist is not about just doing hair in the salon,its about having a passion for hair.

Q.What are the misconceptions that people have about what you do?

A. People see “Matthew Mansoor”as living the life in the “FAB” lane, being with celebs , going to fancy events, around the camera and in the media all the time ,but it is hard work and lots of dedication to get where I am today.

I’m still a hairstylist who started at the bottom who also swept the salons floor (and will still sweep today)  and cleaned retail shelves.

I still work just as hard as any other stylist,always remembering to keep my feet on the ground,and respecting every one for who  they are.

Q. Are there any exciting projects you are working on or looking forward to in the near future?

A. My ultimate goal is to inspire the young generation to become good hairstylists.

I want them to  feel the passion that I feel with my career,and to help create dedicated hardworking stylists for the future.
