When you get your hair done, you want to walk out of the salon feeling happy and confident. The right hair cut and style should make you feel uplifted and beautiful. Although there is never a guarantee that you’ll like your new look, there are some things that you can do to dramatically increase your chances of walking out with a makeover you’ll love. When you are choosing a haircut and style you need to consider some things: your personality and own personal style, your hair texture, the shape of your face, and your facial features.
Your Personality and Own Personal Style
You want to choose a hairdo that fits your own unique personality and lifestyle. If you’re a conservative person with a professional job, you’ll need a look that is appropriate for your career and work place. If you’re on the less conservative side, then you’ll more likely choose something that is a bit more unique and original.
Your Hair Texture
There are certain haircuts and hairdos that work well with one hair type (texture) but may not work well with others. Therefore, you need to take this into consideration. If you have thin hair, shorter hair might be a better choice for you. You might want to avoid long hair with a straight blunt style because it may make your hair appear stringy. Shorter hair with long angled layers will add shape and volume. However, if you have very thick or very curly hair and would like it to appear straighter and less full, you might want to avoid short hair cuts because they will add even more curl and body.
Your Facial Features
Each one of us has features we like and others we don’t. The way your hair is cut can draw attention to certain features and can hide others. You’ll need a hair cut that accentuates your best features and hides features you don’t like. For example, if you have beautiful eyes and want them to stand out, blunt bangs right above the eyes will accentuate them. If you don’t like your neck, then getting an updo may not be the best choice for you since your neck will be bare and therefore accentuated.
The Shape of Your Face
The shape of your face should be taken into consideration when choosing a haircut and style. If you have a long face, you might want to have your hair angled in so your overall look is fuller. Whereas if you have a rounder face, you may want to get a style that makes it appear thinner. Your hair stylist will be able to discuss ways of cutting and styling your hair that is best for your face’s shape for the most attractive look.
