When it comes to our hair, women take it seriously. It can be difficult deciding to go for the big chop with your hairstyle, but it can also be exactly what you need to revive your whole look. Going for the big chop is a great way to add a little bit of drama to your hair and style. If you’ve been considering going for the big chop, but can’t quite get yourself to go through with it, we’re sharing a few things to consider!
Consider the Maintenance Involved
Before going through with chopping your hair it’s really important for you to consider what maintenance might be involved with your desired chopped hairstyle. Is the maintenance doable and realistic for you? Since the chopped hairstyle is dramatic, it’s really important that you make sure you choose something that you will be able to maintain on a regular basis. If it’s not something you think you can keep up with, consider another hairstyle that won’t be as out of your box and talk with your hairstylist.
Trust Your Hairstylist
Whenever you’re going with a dramatic hairstyle change it’s incredibly important that you go to a hairstylist that gets you, what you’re looking to achieve, and you feel comfortable with. Since it is a dramatic cut, ensuring that your hairstylist fits the bill will help make sure you’re left with a result that you’re happy with. Additionally, you want someone you’re comfortable asking questions to and really talking through the decision to go for the big chop. A good hairstylist will advise of any adjustments they feel should be done, and styling tips to help make sure that you feel confident with your new hairstyle.
Think About Your Hairstyling Habits
If you’re someone who likes to tie your hair back in a ponytail or bun (or something similar) often, it may be worth thinking about how to make your big chop hairstyle work to fit those habits. However, if you’re open to other ways of pulling your hair back with your new hairstyle it’s worth asking your hairstylist what he/she suggests as some ways to style your new chopped do.
Consider Your Hair Type and Face Shape
When choosing a chopped hairstyle and going for such a dramatic look, it’s really important that you’re considering your personal hair type and face shape. While we all want to look like our favorite celebs and their chopped hairstyle, we don’t look exactly like them or have the same hair type. So while it’s great to look for inspiration, make sure you’re remembering your personal features and willing to work with your hairstylist to come up with a chopped hairstyle that fits the look you love but also will work with your hair and face shape to best flatter YOU.
Ultimately, if you’ve been going back and forth with going for the big chop – go for it, girl! Remember at the end of the day it’s hair, and it WILL grow back.
