Short hair can be chic and sexy. The trick is to get a terrific cut and
then maintain the look with visits to your stylist at 6 week intervals.
It may cost more but it is worth as there is nothing worse than a bad
short hair cut. Remember, thereís no way to hide the bad cut. If your
hair is slow to grow, then the risk is definitely not worth it. Look
around your group. Take note of whoís sporting a great short look and
then ask for a reference. Most of you enjoy discreetly sharing your
stylist as itís an ultimate compliment to do so. They will repay you in
keeping a great look for you.|
What you wish to achieve with the short look is texture. The correct
amount of spikiness or chunkiness, to use stylist jargon, is what your
stylist needs to be knowledgeable in, as well as eager to explain to you
when planning your cut. Ask beforehand what products you will need to
keep the look going in between visits. This way you will know what you
may have on hand and what you may need to learn to use and keep on hand.
Is it applied before you blow dry or after? A good stylist will think to
bring these issues up without having to be asked but even so, donít
hesitate if you donít quite get it all in the first consultation. This
meeting is usually free and designed to gain your confidence in
transitioning into a new look with the stylist of your choice.
This is definitely the time to ponder whether or not a short cut or a
bob hairstyle is
the most suitable thing for you. The shape of the face is your first
priority. Understand and embrace your bone structure as itís the real
secret to the perfect hairstyle. If you decide to proceed, then go for
it all the way. This way, you will never be disappointed with the final
results. If something still does not feel quite right, then wait and see
if the hesitation passes. If it does not, then obviously you are not on
the right track and will need to reevaluate what you are hoping to
achieve in your transition.
The short cut is a commitment. If your hair grows fast, you may find
yourself in the stylist chair much more than before. This may, or may
not, be your cup of tea. Short hair does have to be styled everyday but
it can take very little time once you have the routine down. Itís common
to go shorter in your 40ís and 50ís. Current trend, though, could not be
further from the truth. Whatever you prefer, be sure to consult an
expert. While you do not want to sell yourself ďshortĒ, looking silly
with a style that no longer works is not an option either. Your hair is
your crowning glory. Love it and coddle it. Your entire persona will
thank you for the attention and respect you show.
