As you bid farewell to the summer months, you may be getting the urge to start fresh with a new hairstyle. Getting a haircut can be empowering, especially for women. Your new look can sky-rocket your confidence and make you feel good about yourself.
But before you take the plunge, there are a few things you need to consider. Be sure to read this article before chopping your hair off.
Consider your lifestyle
If you’re the type of girl, who allot enough time in the morning for styling your hair, then you can go for high maintenance hairstyle. But if you don’t have time to do your hair, opt for a hairstyle that can still look good even if you just wash and go.
Match your haircut to your face shape
The shape of your face plays a big role in determining what hairstyle you would look great on you. That said, it is important to consider your face shape before deciding on a haircut.
Women with round face should steer clear of hair cuts that sit above the ears. A pixie cut, however, will look great for a round face as it can downplay the fullness of a round face and can help lengthen it. Meanwhile, those with elongated face types should avoid cuts that sit below the chin.
In order to see the kind of hairstyle you can pull off, we suggest that you look for celebrities or people with haircut you’ve always admired. Just make sure that they do have the same face shape as yours.
Before you head to the salon, it can be helpful to bring a photo that you can show your stylist. This way, it would be easier for him/her to get the cut you want and avoid a meltdown.
Consider your hair texture
Whether you have stick-straight or curly hair, you can make any haircut work for you – just as long as you consider the texture of your hair.
If you have straight hair, you want to add layers to your hair and take out weight underneath. For women with curly hair, you want to cut it shorter to let those curls pop.
