How to choose the right hairstyle for you

Your hairstyle says alot about who you are, what you like and the sort of person you are.

So when choosing your hairstyle you want it to represent you and to suit you and your features.

You need to think of three things - Effect, Shade and Cut... We'll start with effect....

So you should think about:


1. Look everywhere, from magazines to the internet and for hairstyles that catch your eye. Collect pictures, clippings, and photographs of hairstyles you like. If you want you could create a kind of presentation on your computer of each different look to help you decide what kind of theme and style you want.

For instance, you may want a quite cool complexion, so go for the lighter blondes and darker browns and blacks, but you may also be attracted to the warmer side, so there go for the warm browns and reds and honey blondes and dark blondes. Create quite a few pages and then on each page have an autumnal page where you have all of the reds and red tinted browns and then have a summer page where it is more dark blondes and very warm light brown. You could also have winter which would be platinum blondes and light blondes as well as dark browns with no natural highlights or maybe black hair. For spring it would be the blonde highlighted browns and light browns with not much blonde in etc... etc...

To help you decide on the theme think, does my school uniform work with this or my work clothes as you will be spending a great deal of time in those clothes. You may also want to think of your normal clothes and the clolours you normally wear, if your hair would suit them. Also, if you've got quite a posh job and you come into a meeting with bright red spiky hair or something then people might not take you as seriously as they would normally do or your school may not allow it.


2. For your hair's shade then you want to think of the exact shade... ponder a bit and take your time and get pictures of people with all of the different shades.


3. Now onto the cut. What you want to do is get an idea of your face shape, there are plenty of websites which can help you with that or if you find that a bit complicated then just ask a few friends and relatives what they think. Once you think you've got a rough idea then you want to read up on your face shape. For instance if you have a very square face then you want more curvy soft lines on your hair so maybe more curly soft cuts just to get rid of the straight lines. One thing to avoid with square faces is straight lines as it'll make your face look all blocky and stuff which you don't want.

You will want to think about the features you want to highlight; e.g. if you want eyes then you won't want a side fringe which sweeps over them. Don't choose a hairstyle that you like but won't suit you as it will completely ruin your look and won't look as nice as it did on that model or celeb or maye the person on the other side of the road.


Things to remember:


  • Curly hair looks classic & pretty if it's long and fun & flirty if it's short.
  • Wavy hair can go short or long, but it depends on the waviness.
  • When really curley hair is cut short, you're in danger of getting an afro. Unless that's what you wanted, ask your stylest about layering & length BEFORE it's cut.
  • Straight hair is pretty flexible, go for a daring haircut!
  • Long hair is best if you are more shy or reserved.
  • Short hair is for people who like to draw attention to themselves, but remember that if you are a drama queen, you should have long enough to flip back onto your shoulder for a dramatic effect.
  • Try chest length hair with gentle waves.
  • You could have a thin or thick fringe, straight or curly fringe.
  • For straight bangs sweep them across your forehead.

Most importantly, make sure you like your hairstyle because, hey, your the one wearing it!! xxx
