Sometimes we just need a new look. Maybe it’s because we’ve just landed that amazing new job, had our heart broken, or maybe we just need a change to spice things up. Whatever your reason for wanting a new ‘do, there are tips to help you avoid that dreaded “haircut remorse.” How to Get the Perfect Haircut?
Where Do I Start?
The first thing you want to do is figure out the shape of your face. Are you oval? Square? Heart-shaped? Stand in front of a mirror, pull your hair back, and take a look at the outline of your face. If you’re struggling to decide which shape you are, you can play connect the dots. Remember that game? I bet you never thought you would play it on your face! Use a pencil eyeliner, lip liner, or another tool that will wash off. Whatever you use, make sure it isn’t a marker! Let’s avoid those crazy looks at work the next day.
Bring a Picture With You to the Salon
Once you’ve determined your face shape, grab a magazine, look on Pinterest, or scour the internet for photos of hairstyles that you enjoy. When you find hairstyles that you like, take a look at the face shape of the individual wearing it. Do you have the same shape or similar? How does their hairstyle frame and accentuate their face? When you ask these questions, not only will you be able to narrow down the perfect style, you will achieve a look that will stand the test of time.
Be careful when choosing your photo. If you have fine hair and the person in the photo has coarse hair, you won’t get the result that you might expect and you may leave the salon disappointed. Try to choose a hairstyle that matches your own hair type.
Communicate With Your Stylist
I cannot stress this enough! Your stylist is there to give you the best haircut ever and make sure you leave as happy as can be. They want you to love your hair. In order for that to happen, they need to know what you like and don’t like. Discuss the photo with them and tell them what you like about it.
Don’t hesitate to ask questions. Maybe your hair is damaged and it needs extra hydration. Maybe you have curly hair and you just can’t seem to control the frizz. They can give you the information and advice necessary so that you won’t just look flawless on the day of your appointment, but everyday. And isn’t that the goal?
At the end of the day, whether your hairstyle “goes” with your face shape or not, all that matters is that you love it. Besides, it always grows back and you’re beautiful no matter what.
