Take the leap with a brand new haircut

November 18, 2013

Do the celebrity haircuts you like seem a bit too out-there for everyday life? A hairdresser will find you a style that’s trendy and just right for you.

Take the leap with a brand new haircut
  • Have you had the same haircut for years and years, like so many other women?
  • Maybe you dream about making a change, but you’re worried that a new look won’t suit you or that it’ll make you stand out too much.
  • Sometimes, a change can work miracles and give you a whole new sense of who you are.
  • There’s no limit to the variations in contemporary haircuts. There is the pixie, razor cut, layered long, mid-length and blow outs.
  • And of course, in the world of hairstyling, the equivalent of the little black dress is the bob.

The bob, a true classic

  • The bob is appropriate for just about every personal style and every occasion.
  • Best of all, it can be adapted to most face shapes and hair types, including straight, wavy or curly.
  • For a modern look, choose a bob that is shorter at the back and longer around the face. In short, it’s a classic that is easy to maintain, and it looks good even while you grow it out.

One inch at a time

  • If you feel a bit stressed out at the thought of shortening your long mane of hair, do it gradually.
  • Start by having half an inch cut off, and if you like the result, ask your stylist to take off a bit more the next time.
  • After all, you don’t need a radical haircut to be fashionable.

Go safe with a layered approach

  • You’re still hesitating? To help you take the plunge, you could always start with layers—it’s surprising what this clever technique can do for a look.
  • As well as giving volume and texture to your hair, a layered cut instantly gives you a breezy je ne sais quoi.
  • You could also try an angled haircut to frame the face, or even a layered razor cut combined with straight bangs to make the perfect setting for your most attractive facial features.

Find a cut to suit your hair type

  • Fine hair? Your hairdresser will work on volume rather than slithering (slithering is a cutting technique used to reduce bulk), and he or she will prefer scissors to razors. Applying mousse will give volume and movement to the cut, all while giving a natural looking finish. The pros recommend flipping the head upside down and blow drying underneath the hair first.
  • Thick mop of hair? Your hairdresser will rely on a razor and slithering to remove bulk. Naturally curly or wavy hair, which is often unruly, can be disciplined with pomade, which allows the curls to relax and shine with a glossy effect.
  • Want to set off your best features? With hair, as with your figure, you have to know how to play up your assets. Do you want to highlight your beautiful eyes? Think about bangs. Swept back to the side or hanging straight across the eyebrows, bangs always make people look at your eyes. Long bangs are great for thick hair, while short bangs do wonders for very fine hair.

Don’t hesitate to ask your hairdresser for advice; he or she will help you find the haircut that’s right for you.
