5 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Making A Major Hair Change…
There’s nothing like a new year to inspire a major hair change and what better way to boost your confidence than by switching up your look, right? That being said not all of the hairstyles on Instagram are going to work for you and after a few disasters we know this better than most. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go for it but it’s worth asking yourself these 5 questions first to be sure you’re making the right decision.
How Long Will It Take To Style?
Of course your hair will look totally amazing when you leave the salon but you really need to think about whether you can achieve the same look at home. If it takes 30 minutes to style but your morning routine is 5 then it might be a little too high maintenance. You need something that’s going to work for you so make sure you’re not taking on too much with your new look.
Do I Trust My Stylist?
Not all hairstylists are created equal and if you’re making a major change then you’ll definitely want to see someone you trust. If you don’t go to the hairdressers that often then it might be worth going for something super simple first to test out the salon before you book in for your new look. Getting as many recommendations as possible would be a good shout and it’s worth asking your friends where they get theirs done and how much they spend.
What Do I Have Coming Up?
Before making a big change to your hair it’s worth thinking about any occasions you’ve got coming up and how your new look will work for them. Bangs for example take a lot of styling and if you’re going on holiday then all that humidity could really kill your vibe. Same goes for super on trend hairstyles when you’ve got something like a wedding to go to as those pictures will be around forever!
When Did I Feel The Most Confident?
Facebook memories can be a pretty terrifying place but it’s also a good way to look back on your old hairstyles and think about which one you loved the most. It’s not always the best idea to follow trends and if something works for you then why not stick with it? After all, it’s more about how you feel than anything else. So if you’re making a change just to make a change then you shouldn’t go for it.
How Long Would It Take To Grow Out?
Ok, ok, so sorry to be negative but if your new haircut idea turns out to be a monumental disaster then this is worth thinking about. A few layers aren’t much of a risk but chopping off all your locks into a blunt bob will take way longer to grow out. It might be worth having your M+B hair extensions to hand so that you can clip them in to disguise it and we’d also plan a few simple hairstyles to hold it back just in case. Also, if the style you want is a little risky then it might be worth building up to it in stages rather than chopping off all your hair in one go. That way, if you change your mind after the first cut it won’t be as much of a pain to grow out.
