Anthony Padilla is one half of the YouTube comedy duo, Smosh. He and Ian Hecox began posting comic videos to YouTube in 2005 and have been doing so ever since.

Anthony seems to have one favorite hairstyle that he wears virtually all the time. This is a medium long hairstyle that includes a fringe just above the right eye. This is not a true Emo hairstyle, but it does resemble one. The primary difference is that the fringe does not cover the eye.

The hair is very straight. This style does not require much product to maintain it. In fact, it is possible to maintain this style without any product as long as he keeps a comb or brush handy.

It appears that his hair is cut in layers with razor cut ends on the sides and fringe. This portion of the hairstyle requires a professional to get it right. This means that Anthony has to go to a salon to have his hair cut and styled. This is not a style that one can cut himself or have done by a friend and expect such good results.

He keeps the back and sides a medium length as well. The sides are combed or brushed straight down and cover the ears completely. The back touches the collar.

This is the only hairstyle that turns up when searching for Anthony Padilla hairstyles. He is a young man, but has almost certainly worn other styles at different times in his life. However, there are no published images that show him wearing any other hairstyle. This seems to indicate that Anthony likes this particular hairstyle and does not have any immediate plans to change it.

How To Apply Lowlights To Hair

Posted: 26 Dec 2010 04:20 PM PST

Lowlights are adding some strands of color that are darker than your natural color. The opposite of lowlights are highlights, which are strands of color that are lighter than your natural color. A simple tutorial will help you to get started. There are a few tips to keep in mind before beginning the process.

The first thing to remember is that hair should be clean. The remains of any residue need to be removed, so your hair and scalp don’t have anything to interfere with the coloring process. The shampoo process should be done a day or two prior to the coloring day. Don’t try to get accurate results with hair that has sprays, gels or other products on the hair or scalp.

You can purchase a good quality kit from any source, but don’t use the included brushes that come with the kit. Instead, you should use some flat artist brushes in quarter or half inch sizes from an art supply store. The brushes give you more accurate results because you can control the brushes more easily. Get a pair of good latex gloves that fit your hands snugly. The ones that come in the kits are often too large so you don’t have the ability to get close to your work.

Use a petroleum jelly along your hairline to avoid ending up with stains on your forehead or face. The coloring agents can permanently stain clothing, so you will want to wear clothing that can be discarded if necessary. Avoid working in an area where spatters or spots can get onto permanent surfaces.

Don’t mix the color and begin until you are ready to apply the agent on your hair. There is a limited amount of time once the coloring agent works. Work with a few hairs at a time and paint the color with the brushes. You can get a more natural look if you use fewer strands. You can always add more color later. Do the back of the head first and then you can work forward. You will need to be sure to use the conditioner that comes with the kit.

When you discover how to apply lowlights to hair at home you can save money. Instead of going to an expensive salon to add life to your hair color, spend a few minutes occasionally at home. You will get results that are just as good.

Cuba Gooding Jr. Short Curly Hairstyles: Buzz Cut, Crew Cut, Taper Fade

Cuba Gooding Jr. Hairstyles were originally noted when he played to critical acclaim in the movie Jerry Maguire. He won an Academy Award for his portrayal of Rod Tidwell in this film. His performance as Tres Styles in The Boyz n the Hood won him recognition as well. Gooding has a mature look with strong jawline.

The shape of his head is followed closely by the cropped hair. More hair would probably blur the lines. His hairline on the back of his head is so closely trimmed so that you can see the heart shaped lines on the neckline. The hair grows much lower in center of the neck than on each side of the center hairline.

The temples are closely trimmed as well. Even when his hair is longer on top, it is balanced by a short beard. The longer style remains basically the same in shape, closely following the contours of Cuba’s head. When his hair is left in a slightly longer look, the heart shape on the front of his head is somewhat more obvious than when his curls are trimmed close to the head.

The temples are very short, almost shaved, even when the top of his head sports a longer look. His hair is quite curly even in the very short styles that he seems to prefer. He doesn’t appear to use a part in his hair, regardless of the length of the style.

If you want to imitate Cuba Gooding Jr. Hairstyles, you should trim the sides of your head very closely. The top of your head can be short, but not as short as the sides. A tight natural curl is a strong feature, but not everyone is blessed with that attribute. The hair will need to be evenly evenly over the scalp without cowlicks, whorls or other imperfections.

Choosing Vitamins For Thinning Hair

Posted: 22 Dec 2010 04:14 PM PST

In most instances, a balanced and nutritious diet with a wide variety of foods will supply the necessary vitamins for thinning hair. Hair is made of keratin which is a protein. Protein is formed from amino acids in the body or by eating the proper foods. Your diet should include essential amino acids daily. Vegetarians who suffer hair loss often show symptoms of iron deficiency or chronic telogen effluvium (CTE). Carbohydrates, amino acids and fats are part of the nutritious diet.

These specific vitamins may be of help in improving the condition of your hair and scalp. Vitamin A, niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, cobalamin, folic acid and para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) are a few of the vitamins that are linked to hair loss. Other vitamins include inositol, biotin, choline, vitamin C and vitamin E. Each of these vitamins has specific functions in leading to luxuriant hair and a healthy scalp.

Some of the functions performed by these vitamins specifically include improving circulation to bring extra oxygenation to the scalp and hair follicles. Preventing dry and brittle hair is a part of the tasks performed by vitamin A and others. Retaining the natural hair color is helped by adding sources of vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid. Metabolic support is provided by vitamins such as vitamin H or biotin and vitamin B12. Other benefits are helping the body to absorb nutrients to perform all the functions more easily.

Some of the major foods that include the necessary vitamins are meat, poultry, eggs, fish, milk, organ meats, yeast, nuts, soy products and vegetables. Wheat germ, barley and lecithin from soy are helpful in preventing skin irritations, eczema and baldness. Choose a variety of these foods to fulfill your body’s needs.

Unrefined carbohydrates provide plenty of fiber plus the vitamins you need to deal with the problem of alopecia and hair loss. Carbohydrates are converted to glucose which provides the energy for your body’s operation. This process goes on constantly. Typical carbohydrates are whole grains, vegetables and beans.

Vitamins for thinning hair are important, but it’s also important to avoid overdosing on vitamin supplements. It is possible to take in too much of a good thing. Some vitamins taken in excess will actually cause hair loss. Too much A, D and E will be stored in the cells of the body and can damage the hair, causing it to thin or become dry and brittle. Your best approach is to get the nutrients as part of a healthy diet.

One popular blonde hairstyle for men is short spiky style such as that worn by Justin Hartley in the television series Smallville. Brad Pitt wore a similar style in the movie Fight Club.

Not all short blonde hair are spiked. In fact, some blonde hairstyles are short enough to be classed as a buzz cut and caesar cut. However, most who wear their hair that short have darker hair so that they do not appear to be bald.

Another popular blond hairstyle is the faux hawk. This style is based on the popular punk style known as the Mohawk. The primary difference is that the sides of the head are not completely shaved. Instead, the hair on the sides of the head is left short while the center stripe is allowed to grow longer and is often pulled up so that it stands out from the hair.

One style that is almost exclusively worn by men with blonde hair is a medium length shag worn by members of the surfer subculture. This hairstyle has a distinctive cut, but can be styled in different ways. One common factor is the fringe that normally covers, at least partially, one eye.

Some men like to let their hair grow out long. In many cases, this means simply having the hair cut in layers and wearing it with a part in the middle and the hair swept to the sides or back. Others have the hair in front and on the sides cut shorter and wear their hair in a style known as a mullet.

There are many different men blonde hairstyles. Some are for short hair, some are for medium length hair, and others are for men with long blonde hair.

How To Darken Men’s Facial Hair

Posted: 09 Dec 2010 05:35 AM PST

A large number of men keep their faces clean shaven. However, there are also many of us that prefer to sport some facial hair, a mustache, a beard, or both. Sometimes, especially when we are younger, the hair that grows on the face is very light in color, making it almost invisible. Later, as we get older, we begin to see gray mixing into the natural hair color. In both cases, many men desire darker facial hair without the lighter coloring. Here, we will look at how to darken facial hair.

  • In the case of younger men with pale hair, shaving often has the effect of thickening the hair shafts, making the facial hair coarser than the head hair. These thicker shafts appear to be darker in color because they are more visible.
  • Another method of darkening facial hair is the application of henna to the hair. This works to dye light colored hair to a darker color with red highlights. Other ingredients can be added to the henna to produce even darker colors.
  • There are also hair dye products made just for coloring men’s facial hair. Just for Men is one example. Grecian Formula 16 is another that some men also use to darken the gray hair at their temples. The dye should be brushed into the hair on the area of the face one wishes to darken. Care must be exercised during this process to keep the dye off the skin because it will color the skin as well.
  • In the case of a thin mustache, some men use a pencil in much the same way women do their eyebrows. This method works well if one has a thin, fine mustache such as the pencil style. It is not very good with a fuller mustache.
  • The method used by most men is the commercial dyes made for men. These come with complete instructions on their use. They are also fairly inexpensive.

Ben Affleck has worn several different hairstyles over the years. The one thing they all have in common is that he keeps his hair short. Beyond that, how he styles his hair depends a great deal on the role he is playing.

One hairstyle he seems to favor is a short spiky style. He has worn it with his face clean shaven and with some stubble. This particular style gives him the appearance of defiance and rakishness. It is also a very high maintenance hairstyle. The look is easy to achieve. He simply applies gel to his fingers and pulls the hair up into spikes all over his head.

Another hairstyle that looks very good on Affleck is a conservative comb over. The hair is cut short with the top left just a bit longer. It is styled by parting the hair on one side and combing the top over to the other side. This is a fairly low maintenance style as a touch of hairspray is all that is needed to hold the hair in place.

He has also worn a short pompadour. The hair in front is flipped up to add height. This style requires a bit more maintenance than the simple comb over, though not much. Hairspray or gel is used to hold the hair in place.

What Is A Widow’s Peak?

Posted: 07 Dec 2010 05:59 AM PST

When it comes to choosing a hairstyle, one feature that many people look for so that they may emphasize it or try to hide it is a widow’s peak. But, what is a widow’s peak?

Dracula widow's peak hairstyle
Dracula widow’s peak

This is a genetically dominant characteristic of the hairline that results in a V forming in the center of the hairline above the forehead. In movies and books, the feature is generally associated with villains or monsters. Count Dracula, Eddie Munster, and The Joker are all famous fictional characters that had a widow’s peak. To determine if you have one, simply face a mirror and pull the hair back from the forehead. If a prominent V is seen, then you do have this characteristic.

There are different theories for how this V formation in the hair got its name. The most believable is the superstition that a woman who carries this type of hairline will outlive her husband, becoming a widow. The same superstition applies to men, though the hair feature is more properly called a widower’s peak when seen on a male.

The fact of the matter is that this feature has no relation to the longevity of the person who has it. However, as we all age, our hairlines recede somewhat, even on women, which can sometimes leave a V formation behind.

If you are a man with a widow’s peak and are concerned about its association with villains in movies and literature, there are ways to style the hair that will effectively hide it. Layering the hair in styles that pull it forward, across the forehead, is one effective method. Spiky bangs can also help hide the V in the hairline. One should avoid any style that involves parting the hair in the middle unless he is attempting to emphasize his widow’s peak.

Mustache Styles – How To Grow Your Mustache

Posted: 05 Dec 2010 05:33 AM PST

A mustache is facial hair that is allowed to grow across the upper lip. There are many different styles of mustache, some worn with a full beard and some worn without a beard. What style would look good on a particular person depends a great deal on the overall shape and size of his face. This leaves many men wondering how to grow a mustache.

The growth of facial hair generally begins between the ages of nine and eleven in boys at the corners of the mouth. As they age and progress through adolescence, the hair fills in across the upper lip and begins to grow on the chin. Most men are in their early twenties before they are able to grow a full beard if desired.

Essentially, in order to grow a mustache, a man must stop shaving his upper lip and allow the hair to grow. However, keeping a mustache looking good requires a great deal more than simply not shaving. It requires daily trimming and maintenance.

Some Famous Mens Mustache Styles

  1. Fu Manchu Mustache

    Some mustache styles have their own name. One such is the Fu Manchu. This type of mustache is kept thin across the lip and the hair at the corners of the lips is allowed to grow out long. An additional line of hair is allowed to grow down from the corners of the mouth to the jawline. All of the hairs in this line are permitted to grow long so that they hang freely below the jawling.
  2. Horseshoe Mustache

    Another, similar, type of mustache is the horseshoe. This style was made popular by cowboys in the American west. The hair is allowed to grow out full on the lip and downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline. The difference is that no hair is allowed to hang down from the jaw.
  3. Handlebar Mustache

    Example of handlebar mustache

    Some men prefer to wear a mustache in the style known as a handlebar. This mustache takes it name from the way it resembles a bicycle handlebar. The hair grows out full across the lip and is allowed to grow out on the cheeks so that it connects with the sideburns. This type mustaches is normally very full and thick.
  4. Pencil Mustache

    Another style that has been seen from time to time is the pencil. This is a very thin line of hair that runs along the edge of the upper lip with a wide space between it and the nose. From a distance, this style looks like it was drawn on the face with a pencil.

How To Create The Henry Holland Hairstyle

Henry Holland is a 27 year old British clothing designer who has become famous for his t-shirts containing catchphrases. Henry was born in Lancashire England. He has founded two clothing lines that are sold in different stores, House of Holland and H! by Henry Holland. Here, we will look at how to create the Henry Holland Hairstyle.

Henry Holland wears his hair in an alternative style that works well with his facial shape and features. The hair is cut short on the sides, around the ears, and in back. The hair on top is left a bit longer to provide body and height to his style. The ends are razor cut to provide added texture. Despite the messy appearance of this style, it is created deliberately and takes a few minutes and several products to create.

Starting with damp, not wet, hair, the first step is mist the top of the hair with a gel spray to obtain a soft hold. Next, turn the head upside down and finish blow drying while running the fingers through the hair to create a messy look. After the hair is dry, comb the back and sides down with a bit of molding cream to hold this in place.

The next step is to rub molding cream into the roots of the top hair. This should be down in a small amount to avoid weighing the hair down. The goal is to lift the roots to add body to the overall style. Next, continue using the molding cream to lift the hair and pull it in clumps every which way. The goal here is to make the hairstyle look as messy as possible.

After one has achieved the look he desires, a small amount of spray on lacquer will provide a strong hold and maintain the hairstyle for several hours. It can be touched up from time to time throughout the day as needed.
