In the spirit of changing seasons, many of us are feeling the urge to change our hair style. New season commonly equals a new hair look. There are so many exciting and different hair trends in cuts and colors floating around the internet, and probably in your town. As much as we’re all about embracing change and having fun with your hair, there are some things you may want to think about before jumping into the chair of your hair stylist. Consider this before you go for a new hairstyle:
Your Face Shape
This may seem obvious, but we wanted to be sure to mention your face shape. One of the common misconceptions is all haircuts look good on everyone. While a great hair stylist can help you create a look similar to the one you saw on your favorite celebrity, there may need to be some adjustments to the actual style to be sure that it’s flattering your face shape. If you’ve ever gotten your hair style changed by bringing in a picture you loved, and didn’t feel like the style looked quite as good on you it’s probably because that person in the picture had a different face shape. The point is, when you’re thinking about changing your hair style you want to have an open conversation with your hair stylist about creating a look that you love that’s also going to flatter your face shape.
Think About the Styling Needs
Another big thing that tends to be forgotten when it comes to changing up your hair style is really thinking about the care and styling it’s going to require. If you’re someone who wants to wash and wear your hair, a super long hair style with lots of layers may not be the best option for you. Think about how much, or little hair styling you’re willing to do in your day to day life. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with not wanting to spend a lot of time on your hair, but this is something you want to think about before making the commitment to the change. This is another element you may want to discuss with your hair stylist, ask them what kind of care and every day styling a haircut/style you want is going to need and decide if that really works in with your lifestyle. If it’s not, think about how you can accomplish the same type of look in a way that works for you.
Don’t Make a Rash Decision
It’s easy to get frustrated with your hair when you’re ready for a change, but deciding on making a change to your hair when you’re in that frustrated state of mind can leave you feeling regret shortly after. Experts suggest taking some time to really think about what change you want to make to your hair, not doing so in a spontaneous or frustrated state of mind. This way you’re making a clear and well thought out decision that you’re much more likely to love in the long run.
