s k c i r T & s Tip This month I thought I would give everyone a heads up on what’s hot & what’s not for spring and summer. If you have it, then flaunt it. Long hair has definitely made its return, and looks to be the bigger part of the summer trends. Long flowing curls are definitely the big hit. You could say a piece of 70’s flair has come back. Now, I am not telling you to bust out the Charlie’s Angels feathering technique, but you definitely need to know how to use a curling iron again. So, here are a couple of styling tips for those big bouncy curls you see on shows like Desperate Housewives.
1. 2. 3. 4.
Shampoo your hair with a volumizing shampoo. Then apply a generous amount of medium to firm hold gel or mousse. Power dry your hair upside down while brushing to achieve maximum fullness You will need a 2-inch barrel curling iron. First, pin all your hair on the top of your head and pull out small subsections, one at a time. Then curl them back working your way up to the top of your head, leaving your bangs for last. 5. Then use a small amount of spray wax, shine spray or pomade in the palm of your hands, throw your hair over again and run your hands loosely through the ends only. This will slightly break up the curls. 6. Throw hair back, pinch & twist ends together for a bit of control. DO NOT brush the curls out; all finishing must be done with your fingers. 7. Finish off with light to medium hairspray, nothing firm. Save that for the formal styles. If you have short textured hair, that will still be a big hit and don’t be afraid to try the asymmetrical style if you want to change it up a bit. No matter what style you want to shoot for, always avoid the rat’s nest. Over teasing is not necessary any longer. Salon quality root lift/volumizing products are very effective and have been perfected more than ever and are definitely worth looking into. If you have been disappointed with products in the past, stay professional. Trust your stylist; don’t be afraid to ask for suggestions. A professional salon product is the only way to go. If your stylist directs you to a grocery store, it is definitely time to find a new one. Just remember, a teased up mess is a thing of the past. My personal favorites are Schwarzkopf Osis Dust-It and Fudge Root Juice or Pump Up, and Paul Mitchell Root Lift. Now, lets talk hair color for a second. As the beginning of summer approaches, start out easy. Accent panels or multi-toned highlights are what you want to go with. You don’t want that July-August over processed, roasted blonde look in May. Now guys, a brand new product for you has just been released—Fudge Reform. It is such a versatile product it can work for most men’s style. It gives great hold without any flaking or crunching. Amarillo has a great variety of stylists, and as always if you have any questions give me a call to book a free consultation.

How to play pool How To Play Pool You puff on your Cuban, take a sip of single malt, and round the table as you consider how to sink the 3-ball. You're intrinsically aware of that attractive babe at the bar. Her shapely legs are wrapped around her stool and her eyes are on you. You don't have to sweat or panic as you line up your shot.
from anywhere behind the head string. The ball must hit the head rail, come back to bank against the foot rail, and return toward the head rail. The person whose ball stops the closest to this rail without touching it will get to break. Hitting any side rail will result in a loss of the lag.
How to rack When racking balls, they should all be frozen, that is, touching There's something inherently cool about pool. We think of it and we tightly. The front ball must be on the foot spot (that dot on the felt). think of smoky dives, smooth jazz and beautiful dames. Many movies The 8-ball (or 9-ball when playing 9-ball) must be located in the have focused on the sport and contributed to this mystique, but none center. If the breaking player isn't satisfied with how things look, he were as influential as The Hustler and its sequel The Color of Money. can demand a rerack. Now imagine how hip you'll look when you can play like a pro. 8-ball rules This game is played with a rack of 15 balls. The objective in 8-ball is Billiards was originally played on the ground in the 14th century in Northern Europe. In the subsequent century, the game moved indoors to sink the black 8-ball once all the striped or solids balls -and was eventually transferred to a table. It is believed that green felt depending on which set you end up with -- have been made. The first was used as a reminder of grass. Rules and equipment went through a sunken ball of the breaking player decides this. If he pockets one of series of changes but aristocrats of the Renaissance took a liking to it. each on the break, he has the choice of pocketing whichever type he desires, and if he pockets nothing, it's the other player's turn to opt for We will explore the rules of two of the most popular types of play but whichever category of balls he wants. to begin, there are a couple of points they have in common. All the When breaking, the white cue ball must originate from behind the rules, however, are those advocated by the American Pool players head string. To avoid fouling, you must hit the first or second ball in Association. the rack. Also, at least four balls must hit a railing if no balls are made. If that doesn't happen on the break, the balls must be reracked Who breaks? To decide which player will break up the balls, both participants will and you get another chance at a legal break. If you scratch, which means inadvertently sinking the cue ball, on the break, the other employ the method of lagging. The two players are side by side and each strikes a ball simultaneously toward the head rail straight ahead player sees the balls being reracked and will break himself.
If you foul after having broken legally, the balls stay as they are and your opponent gets ball-in-hand ; the opportunity to place the ball wherever he wants behind the head string. He can only hit balls that are not in the kitchen, within the head string. For ball-in-hand situations not involving a break, the ball can be placed anywhere on the table. A person plays up until he fails to sink his own kind of ball or fouls. Then it's the other player's turn. If you sink the 8-ball before you've pocketed all those in your category, you lose. If you sink the 8-ball when you're allowed to, but scratch, again, you lose. A foul shot occurs when a player scratches or doesn't hit a ball in his category, when the cue ball is moved before the shot (even if it's an accident), and when no balls hit a rail after a ball fails to be sunk. These result in a ball-in-hand situation for the opposition. Finally, when you've cleared the table of your category of balls, you must "call" the 8-ball, indicating the pocket in which you intend to send it. If it lands in any other pocket, the other player wins. 8-ball strategy If you're an inexperienced player and you know you can't run the table out, go for easy shots. Sink as many balls of yours as you can without touching the 8-ball. When your skills improve, only run out the table if you utterly believe you can do it. Shuffle the balls around so that your rival will have a hard time planning his course of action. 9-ball rules 9-ball is also quite popular and some of the most important professional tournaments involve 9-ball. Being a rotation game, the nine balls must be pocketed in numerical order. It never really matters which ball is sunk but the lowest numbered ball on the table must be struck first. The purpose of the game is to be the first to make the 9-ball. That's why combination shots are a great asset in this type of pool. Upon breaking, you must absolutely hit the 1-ball. If you don't, the balls are reracked and your opponent will break. In addition, like in 8-ball, at least four balls must make contact with a rail. Should you sink the 9-ball on the break, you win. If you scratch at the same time, the 9-ball is spotted and the other player gets a go at it. Ways to foul include scratching, failure to hit the object ball or rail after contact, and moving the cue ball. When this happens, the other player has ball-in-hand anywhere on the table. If a ball gets knocked off the table, it is spotted. Otherwise, any ball made illegally remains off the table. 9-ball strategy A green player should make it his priority to get the 9-ball on the move if he can't run out. Remember that since you're both playing the same balls, you don't want to do all the work for your opponent. On the other hand, if you're a seasoned player, run out or play safe. Send the cue ball to tight spots.
Tipsâ€Ś Visualize The first thing you want to do after the break is take a few moments to absorb how the table is laid out. Not only is it a good psychological weapon to let the other guy come to the conclusion that you mean business, it's also a good technique to plan your game. Good players play the cue ball; it's a matter of making it go where you need it to go for the next shot. Proper stance Bow your head to the level of the stick to line up your shot. Also, hold the stick straight in front of you, not at a sideways angle. Your eyes should be focused on the object ball, not the cue ball. It's amateurish to play any other way.
right away; wait until the cue ball has made contact. Break hard While it may be recommended on some shots to take it easy -- to restrain your movements for better control -- never do it when breaking. All professionals have special flexible cue sticks that they use solely for breaking. Put all your energy into this shot so that the balls can scatter and give you a better chance to run out. Chalk up Applying chalk to your stick isn't just a capricious habit. It makes sure that the leather tip will not slip, stick or slide during the shot. Be generous and chalk up before each shot. Don't forget to smear some on the outer rim of the tip as well. Glossary

Dixie Chicks Duo Does Double Duty As Court Yard Hounds Sisters Emily Robison and Martie Maguire are figuring out how to be both Court Yard Hounds and Dixie Chicks during the coming months.
Court Yard Hounds -- which was born last year after third Chick Natalie Maines decided she wasn't ready to return to the group yet -- played several shows at the South By Southwest conference in Austin, where the 12-track album was recorded at Maguire's home studio. "It was a big leap of faith," she says of the project. "We've always been part of a band, even when we were kids, not just us two. There's always been somebody in between us, and now I turn (looks left) and I'm like, 'Oh, hi. That's my sister!' It's like we're getting to know each other in a different way."
Robison wrote all but one of the songs on "Court Yard Hounds," which the duo co-produced with Jim Scott and features contributions by Lloyd Maines, Natalie's father, and a duet with Jakob Dylan ("See You in the Spring"). Court Yard Hounds are booked for a June 18 appearance at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and will play on some of Sarah McLachlan's Lilith Fair dates during the summer, and more dates will be announced in the near future. Meanwhile, Robison and Maguire plan for the group to be a going concern parallel to the Dixie Chicks and have enough additional material written during the first album sessions to "One had nothing to do with the other," Robison explains. "When (the Eagles shows) came up we were in the middle of planning promotion for make for a good start on the next album. (Court Yard Hounds), and we were like, 'Is this going to derail us?' But at the same time we were so excited to do it because of the opportunity it "We're ready to do the next record," Maguire says. "We have more represents. And it answers the biggest question, the elephant in the room, repertoire; we had, like 20 songs. We just hope the songs resonate with people so they want to hear them in years to come. That's always the which is 'Have the Dixie Chicks broken up?' To us it's almost the goal, that you're making something that lives for a really long time and perfect, 'Shut up! Stop asking! Believe us when we say we're still that people want to hear more of." together, we're just not working right now.` So it just kind of helped us do that." The Dixie duo will be releasing their self-titled debut as Court Yard Hounds on May 4 and plan to tour in support of it. But the Chicks, which have been on hiatus since touring to support 2006's Grammy Award-winning "Taking the Long Way," have announced an eight-date stadium run in June with the Eagles. Robison and Maguire tell Billboard.com they don't think the Dixie Chicks shows will hamper Court Yard Hounds' rollout.
