4 Things to Think About Before You Cut Your Hair.

4 Things To Think About Before You Cut Your Hair
Changing your look can be “life changing”…. really it can be! Well at least that’s how it feels to some people. There are many reasons why we want to go from long to short or in between. Before you allow your stylist to be scissor happy, there are 4 things to think about:

  1. Do I really want to cut my hair, or am I being emotional?
    • Negative things in life should not justify you cutting your hair, because you may wake up the next day thinking “what did I do?!?” .
  2. Just because it’s cute on “her” doesn’t mean it’s cute on you.
    • Ok, let’s be logical. You may see Rihanna or some chick with a banging haircut, BUT that doesn’t mean it will look like that on you. Find a cut that fits you, your personality, your profession, your life.
  3. Does the cut I want fit my face?
    • Oval Face – can carry a wide range of styles
    • Oblong Face – bangs, layers, nothing too long
    • Round Face – add volume to the crown on styles, layers
    • Square Face – short spiky styles work
    • Heart Face – deep side parts, bobs, bangs can work
  4. Can I maintain my style?
    • When you leave the salon, can you achieve the same or similar style your stylist does? Can you sleep well with your style? Can you financially keep up your style? Hmmm…

If you answered all these questions with ease, then go ahead, get your new style! If not, I suggest you think over your makeover one more time.
