10 Tips to Remember BEFORE You Get That Haircut

How often has it happened that you go to your stylist all enthusiastic about getting a new cut only to feel disappointed at the end of the exercise? Well, the blame does not entirely lie with the hairdresser. Remember these few points and ensure you get a cut of your dreams. 

1.      Shapeless long hair has the potential to age you since it will draw attention down and accentuate the gravity of an aging face. A hairstyle should never look old and outdated, plan regular trips to your stylist every 6-8 weeks.

2.      Don't be the first or last appointment at the salon; admittedly, it takes me some time for a stylist to get warmed up and focused on the task at hand.

3.      Have realistic expectations of your hairstyle and consider your lifestyle. Your hairstylist is not a magician!

4.      For an amazing haircut, ask your stylist to cut the ends of your hair so they’re slightly jagged instead of blunt. This provides extra body and texture.

5.      If you’re trying to grow out your bangs, ask your hairdresser to add a few long layers around your face to help the bangs fade in as they grow.

6.      If your locks are ultra-thick, you need to thin them out! Ask your stylist to hold the scissor vertically while cutting the layers to take away the bulk. This type of haircut lets you keep your length while taking away the heaviness.

7.      Layers are the magic remedy. As you get older, you need to soften the lines around your face. 

8.      If you hate your style, be honest! If you notice that your style isn’t coming out the way you pictured it — either during the cut or after — don’t  be afraid to let the stylist know while the cut is happening giving him or her a chance to fix it

9.      Don't go too long between coloring sessions or let your haircut lose its shape. Your hair should be a positive reflection of your style.

10.  If you're not sure how to style a new cut once you get home, go back and ask questions! Your hairdresser wants you to look good as it’s an expression of his or her work and will be more than happy to teach you proper styling and finishing tips.
