The long, beautiful hair of flame points is one of the most recognizable hairstyles for siameses! These types of fur babies are known to have lots of growth due to their breed’s genetics.
Many owners choose to keep it natural because they admire the way it poofs out and glistens in different light. Others take great care in styling and washing these dogs’ coats so that they stay soft and sleek.
When it comes time to find your new companion, you will need to know some things about this dog type. Here, we will discuss everything you should look for when choosing if this is the right fit for you and your dog! So let’s get started – learn all about the three main flame point breeds here!
Spotted Fire Dog
Color: All colors are acceptable as long as the coloration does not match with another color or shade of skin. This includes white markings, solid colored areas, and trims/patterns such as rosettes (small circles) or checkerboard patterns.
Coat: Smooth and short like those of other bulldog breeds. They require minimal grooming and only be trimmed every six months-a month at the most.
Behavior: Friendly, playful, and curious are qualities that make up this dog personality. Although they may enjoy chasing toys, they are more likely to want to snuggle and play.
History of the flame point
The long, flowing hair style was first popularized in Japan around the early 1900s. In Japan, this hairstyle is known as “flame” or “fi-fu” (the sound it makes when you run your hands through it) due to its tendency to sparkle like flames.
Originally, only very rich people could afford to have this hairstyle because it took hours to do every morning!
Nowadays, many variations exist on how to achieve this look. Some use rollers to create the effect, while others use clips or glue.
Many people associate this hairstyle with Japanese culture, but it has since been adapted and worn by other cultures as well.
How to do a flame blowout
This is one of the most popular hairstyles for long hair. It was first seen in the 1980s, when many people had luscious, very curly or even wavy locks!
It is typically done with freshly washed and dried hair that has been completely brushed out. Then, you use a flat-bristled brush to pull the top layer up while twisting and pulling the ends down.
This creates an elegant look that can be preserved for hours if needed. Because this style leaves your hair exposed, it is important to use appropriate aftercare to prevent dry scalp and broken hairs.
General tips: Use a spray-on gel to help preserve the shape of the hair as it dries. If your hair feels tight, apply more pressurized air using a hairdryer or curling iron.
Tips for long hair flame points
The first step in creating this hairstyle is to choose your flame length. This will depend on your own personal preference as well as what kind of look you want to create!
If you are looking to create a more elegant, simple style then go one whole burn (length of hair) outside of your normal part. If you would like it to have some flair then start at the middle part and gently push out each side.
The hardest part about this hairstyle is keeping the flames even across the face! General tips include using hairspray to help keep the ends smooth and fluffed up.
Look for your flame point match
Sometimes, even after trying every trick in the book, you just can’t get that perfect look. With long hair sisiameses, this is especially the case! If one of your dogs has really thick or very curly fur, it may take more than just cutting their hair to achieve that beautiful frame.
You could try brushing their coat as close to straight as possible, using a round brush if needed. Or perhaps use different products with lighter hairs to blend in more. The best way to see if these changes work is by waiting until later in the day to apply the product and see what looks best.
Another option would be to cut their hair shorter and layer up the colors and styles to make them seem less curlier.
Ask friends for recommendations
As mentioned earlier, there are many different types of hairstyles that can be done with long hair. Some people start off their look very casually, by taming some of their hair with a braid or ponytail. Others add more elaborate decorations and styles to get into more flashy looks.
In between those two ends is something that has become popular- the flame point sisas! (Yes, it’s a real thing.)
A flame point siiasa is when part of your hair is tied up in a roll, creating a circle. The length of the circle depends on how short you want your hair to be at the bottom, and then it is extended upward to create what seems like a flame shape.
This style is quite dramatic because all you see is the top half of the hair! A perfect way to refresh your own look if you feel tired of the same old boring hairdo. If you would like to try this out for yourself, ask your friends or family members who do well designed hairstyle to show you one.
Consider the location of the salon
As mentioned before, finding the right balance of length for your hair is dependent on several factors, including where you get your hair done. If this sounds familiar, it’s because we talked about that here.
The first factor to consider when deciding whether or not to go shorter is the type of hairstyle you are looking to achieve. For example, if you want to create a very soft and romantic look, then going short is definitely an appropriate way to do so.
You can also choose to cut off some of the longer layers in your hair to see more defined features. On the other hand, if you would like to show off your beautiful long hairs, then keeping them may be the best option.
Another important consideration is the area around your haircut.
Pay attention to the stylist
As with any new hairstyle, it is important to be aware of how your hair would look like with this style. Your hairdresser may suggest products or treatments for you to use in order to make your long locks full and luscious.
Since this hairstyle requires two parts– one part has got rid of most of the top layer and then another part cuts off the rest-, both must be done by a professional. Make sure their suggestions are natural looking and will stay strong!
Some people say that this type of haircut can cause weight loss due to all the pulling at the roots, but others report the opposite. It really depends on what kind of shape your hair was before.
Ask them to show you photos of their work
As tempting as it may be to let your friend’s hair do or style run its course, there is no reason for you to not look into their work.
Ask them to send you some pictures of what they have done before! If they are still in business, get a few references too.
This will help you determine if this person is really able to take care of a lot of hair and whether or not they are consistent with their products used. It will also give you an idea of how well they handle large amounts of hair.
If you ever feel uncomfortable letting someone cut your hair, at least make sure that you are within close proximity of a trusted source where you can go for cuts.
