Is your hairstyle important?
You bet it is! Your haircut and hairstyle is an extension of yourself, it can project an image to the world that can say a lot about you, who you are and what you’re about. Your hairstyle can definitely affect the way people perceive you, even subconsciously.
It can create opportunities for you or perhaps even take them away. It can influence the way you feel about yourself, it can build up your confidence or destroy it. That’s right; a bad hair day can really mean a bad day. I know that it’s a shame that our society judges so unfairly, simply based on our physical appearance. But its part of human nature and everybody does it, regardless to whether they care to admit it or not. We size people up and label them within seconds.
As an example, last year I called up a local plumber from the yellow pagesto give us quote for some plumbing work we wanted done at the salon. The guy that come to see us to assess the job, was wearing a heavy metal band t-shirt with casual blue denim jeans.
Now, although this plumber was quite polite, give helpful suggestions and seemed to now what he was talking about. His physical appearance contradicted what I personally elieved a professional plumber should look like. Therefore, I found myself instantly doubting whether he would be capable of doing a good job. Simply because he didn’t meet the stereotype of a plumber, my confidence in his abilities was compromised.
Hairdressers and other professional people in the fashion and beauty industry understand this. They know how important the right look is for clients and customers. I myself have built a career in hairdressing by helping clients achieve the right style for them, for the right occasions. Finding great hairdressers that can deliver can be half the battle.
Many women today are simply too busy to manage long tresses of hair. So instead they opt for short, manageable hairstyles that can still look trendy and professional. The great thing about sporting short hairstyles is the fact that you can choose different styles at any time. However there are certain things you must consider when you modify your short hairstyles such as:
Short Haircuts with Bangs
If you feel like you have a lot of forehead or deep forehead lines to cover — this may be the short cut for you. You can choose a long sweeping bang or pick an edgy blunt bang that accentuates beautiful facial features-especially eyes.
The Messy Short Haircuts
This messy style is sexy and lends itself to a mid-length to longer short haircut. That just- out- of- bed tousled look is appealing for the relaxed, demure personality.
Bob Short Haircuts
Asymmetrical bob cuts are popular at the moment. One side can be left longer than the other side for a creative look. A classic bob where both sides are left a little longer frames the face for a hairstyle that looks sharp and tailored.
Layered Short Hairstyles
A layered look will add volume to the hair and give it depth. If the hair is fine and straight the layers will give pizazz to a dull style. Be careful with curly and thick hair as sometimes the layers will make it look too puffy.
We’ve all felt this way at some point, having had one bad hair day too many we find ourselves booking an appointment with our hairdresser in a bid to get our troublesome long locks cut off once and for all. Yet when the appointment rolls around, we get in the chair we mumble, “Oh, just the usual please. Tidy it up a bit and get rid of the split ends”. The fact is that while many of us would love to be as brave as Emma Watson and try out a shorter ‘do, we are just too scared that it wont suit us.
There IS a short hairstyles to suit everyone, it’s all about finding the right cut for your face shape. Be warned though that thick, curly hair is difficult to tame into a short style and will look its best with a shoulder length cut.
Lusting after a shorter style isn’t worth it when even the slightest hint of rain can turn you into a complete frizzball – trust us!
If you have a round face, opt for a fun, flirty, layered style that frames your face and finished below your jawline.
Teamed with a sweeping fringe, this style will make your face appear thinner and your cheekbones more defined. Avoid one-length blunt cuts as this look will only enhance the roundness.
Square faces should be softened with tousled, textured bobs to reduce the appearance of an angular jawline. The cut should end above or below the jaw, but avoid styles that finish at the chin as they will only accentuate the face’s squareness.
Give the impression of width by opting for a simple yet gorgeous chin-length bob. Having a full style at the sides of your face will balance out your look, but be sure to avoid long-length centre parting styles, as they will only make your face seem even longer!
Women with heart shaped faces tend to have amazing cheekbones too, so make them stand out with a playful fringe and a chin-length bob to give you fullness around the jawline where it is most needed. If you have a dramatic heart shape where your chin is much narrower than the rest of your face, avoid top heavy and very short styles.
