Question: How can I change my hairstyle?
Answer: So you’ve had the same hairstyle for years and are dying for a change. We’ve all been there, and spring is the perfect time to change up your look and leave the salon feeling like a new woman. It can be scary to change your hairstyle, but here are a few tips to pull it off without feeling instant regret:
If you want to change your color, talk to your hairstylist! What looks great on a celebrity may not work for your skin tone. Schedule a consultation and collect several opinions regarding the color you should choose. Getting highlights is another non-scary way to add life to your locks. If you’re a brunette, adding light caramel pieces around your face and to the lower half of your layers will add dimension and really brighten your face. Warm caramel highlights are the perfect way to start feeling summery when the weather outside is still chilly.
If you want to change your haircut, look first to your face shape. Heart shaped faces look great with above the shoulder cuts, which will accentuate your cheekbones. Round faces work well with asymmetrical cuts, side swept bangs and long layers. Square faces look best with long hair and long layers to soften angular features. Oval shaped faces can get away with just about any haircut (lucky!). These rules can help accentuate your features, but the best way to find a haircut that’ll suit you is to pick up a couple of magazines and pull out anything that speaks to you. Go to your hairstylist and they can tailor the cut to suit you.
The most unobtrusive way to change your hair? Play with the texture. If you straighten your wavy hair everyday, let your waves come out and play. Use a nourishing sea salt spray, scrunch up your hair with your fingers and let your natural beauty shine. If you have straight hair, use a texturizing spray like Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. This will add body and texture, giving you a whole new look without coloring or cutting your hair. If you want to go more sleek and shiny for the spring, use a product like Macadamia Natural Oil and run it through the ends of your hair to keep your hair smooth and shiny.
