TIPS WHEN
CHOOSING

A NEW HAIRCUT

 

There's a hairstyle to suit everyone.  
Sometimes
we love a hairstyle but it may
not work for you. 
When thinking about trying
a new style there's a few
things to consider,
whether it will suit your face shape, 
hair texture,
have you got the right hairline, do you need

to be able to tie your hair up, or have you got time to

maintain your look. This guide might help you make a decision.

WHAT HAIR STYLE WILL SUIT
MY HAIR TEXTURE?

Choosing a style that works with your hair texture will make life a whole lot

easier when styling your hair.

 

FINE HAIR

Fine hair can look lank and lack volume and texture but with the right layered style

you could create a style full of body.  Fine hair is best not too long or all one length.

There are some great hair cuts that really suit fine hair such as graduated bobs, short

layered bobs or short textured hair. Styling products will also create volume in your hair,

try and find a product that's not too heavy so it doesn't weigh your hair down.

  CURLY HAIR

Why fight your curls?  Instead  work with them,

current trends are enhancing waves and curls so be

ahead of the game by letting your curls work for you. 

Short hair cuts maybe harder work if your hair is

very curly  so unless you are a high maintenance

kind of girl you will probably want to stay on the longer side.

On the other hand if your hair is wavy this would be a

good way to add texture to a shorter look.

     

STRAIGHT HAIR

 Straight hair is effortless with no fuss to look good. However if

              you're wanting a curl or a wave in your hair you might struggle to keep a curl. Sometimes straight hair feels flat and lifeless but by adding some styling product such as hairspray or sea salt spray this will create some texture

and movement.

THICK HAIR

Steer clear of one length hair and instead go for long layered styles that can be thinned out to

the thickness of your hair.

                               

WHAT HAIR STYLE WILL SUIT MY FACE SHAPE?

Hairstyles should he flattering to you, complimenting and framing your face, for                               example making round faces appear more angular or longer and making longer faces                   appear shorter and softening the edges of chiselled features.  Here is a list of face shapes and       what works best and what to avoid.

WHAT HAIR
STYLE
WILL
SUIT MY

HAIRLINE?

 

Some hairlines can be a bit tricky

when your trying to style your hair

and just don't lie where you want it to.

 

COWLICKS AND WIDOW PEAKS

Are very similar and sometimes it's easier to work

with them, than against them.  If you're considering

having a fringe it's going to take a bit more work to get it

to lie right.  A longer soft side fringe might be a better

option, this works perfect with the way the hair naturally falls.

With the current fashions for men's hair, faded at the sides and

textured over to one side on top,these hairlines could work in your

favour.

 

DOUBLE CROWNS

Have a mind of there own, with unruly hair that sticks up in different

directions if cut too short.  With long hair double crowns probably won't cause

too much of a problem unless layers are cut too short.  If your having a short

haircut keep the top longer so that it lies flat.

 

RECEDING HAIRLINE

Tends to be a problem more for men.  The current hairstyles work great for thinning and

receding hairlines with super short faded sides and textured on the top.  For women with

this problem a full fringe or side fringe will disguise your hairline.
