With the temperatures rising, some of you may be tempted to chop your hair off. This is especially true for women with medium to Rapunzel-length hair. But before you book an appointment, you want to make sure you choose a hairstyle that would look great on you.
There are a lot of thing to consider when deciding the right haircut for yourself. Consider these factors before getting a haircut to ensure that you won’t regret your decision later on.
Make sure you’re ready
Sometimes, getting a haircut may seem like a spontaneous thing to do. If you’re getting a trim, then there’s nothing to worry about. But if you’re chopping off a huge chunk of your hair, be sure that you’re ready for it.
Cutting your hair is a big commitment. Remember, once you it, there is no turning back. So make the cut with complete confidence. If you don’t like how your hair looks, just give yourself a few days to adjust. You may not like it at first, but you’ll get used to it eventually.
Consider your lifestyle
Some hairstyles look great. However, they can be high maintenance. If you are the type of person who you don’t have time to style your hair every morning, you’ll want to choose a hairstyle that will still look great even if you just wash and go. Cut your hair into a style you can maintain.
Know your hair texture
It’s easy to grab a picture of a celebrity and then ask your stylist to cut your hair the same way. Make sure that your hair has the same texture. Otherwise, you may not be able to pull it off.
If you thin, stick-straight hair, Blake Lively’s hairstyle may not look as good on you. Short hair would be a great option for you. A layered cut is also ideal as it will add volume and body to your hair. Excessive length will make your hair look thinner and will weigh your hair down.
Know your face shape
Just because the hairstyle looks great on a certain celebrity, that doesn’t mean that it will look great on you too. Your face shape will have a big impact on your finished look. As such, you need to take your face shape into account before getting a haircut.
If you have a round shaped face, your goal is to find a hairstyle that would make your face look more oval. Short hairstyles in a swept-back direction will help lengthen a circular face. Side-swept bangs and shoulder-length hair will look work best for those with square-shaped face. If you have a heart-shaped face, a lob would look great on you. If you have an oval face shape, you’re lucky. You can pull off any hairstyle you want.
