Taking of taking your chances with a short haircut? If this is the very first time that you will be having your hair cut short, just coming up with a decision is already traumatic enough. For the longest time, you have been used to hearing that long hair is the talisman of femininity. But even if long hair is associated with youth and beauty, it is not always the perfect choice for all faces. Whether you will go short because of the changes caused by Mother Nature and time or you are only gearing up for some fashion adventure, there are some guidelines that you will have to consider.
Check Out Some Great Ideas
You can start by visiting websites that feature images of short hairstyles. You can print some pictures of the styles that appeal to you. See to it that you will consider the texture and color of your hair with the hair of the model.
Refrain from asking the advice of your family, friends or even your significant other. You have read that right. This decision is one that you should make on your own and must be based primarily on your personal sense of style, your own confidence level, the shape of your face and the characteristics of your hair. Some ladies get the opinion of their significant other who will then tell them not to cut it because they like it long. Would you listen? After all, you don’t allow him to choose your wardrobe, do you?
Meanwhile, your family and friends will usually tell you what they think you would like to hear. It can be difficult to gather honest opinion from a person who thinks that you will be made at them when your new look does not work out well for you.
Ask Those Who Already Have Short Hairstyles
Although the person might not be wearing exactly the cut that you are thinking of, you can easily tell if someone’s hair has been done by a professional. You can ask them who their stylist is and request to get the contact information of that stylist.
Schedule Your Consultation
Take the photos that you’ve found and see to it that you have really thought things through. Aside from discussing the ideas that you have in mind, you can also ask the hair stylist if they have any recommendations. The stylist should know some details about your lifestyle, daily routine, career and styling habits to guide them when they make suggestions. Hair color, hair texture, body type and face type must all be part of the considerations. You can also ask the stylist to explain to you how a hair cut will work with the shape of your face. The stylist must have specific reasons and not just tell you that this is going to look good in you.
Make sure that you take your time and find a good hair stylist for you to get the right hair cut that will suit you best.
