Hair To Be Different: Being Brave At The Salon

When you have long hair, going to the salon is often something which isn’t particularly regular. With your style staying the same for a longer time, you won’t have to think about this part of life particularly often, and it can be easy to be daunted when it comes to choosing something new as a result. Of course, though, one of the best ways to make yourself feel good is a little bit of change. To help you out with this, this post will be going through two of the best ways to find a style which is guaranteed to suit you, without having to rely on trial and error to get you there.

The Power Of A New Look

Before you start venturing into the unknown, it is usually helpful to have an idea of why you’d want to take this sort of action in the first place. A new look will give you more than just refresh your appearance. Along with this, this sort of change can offer loads of benefits, with a good boost to your confidence being chief among them. A lot of people find that this sort of work will also start to turn more of the heads around them, especially at work and other social settings which you frequently attend. While you probably won’t want to get into a relationship with a colleague, this little boost could be a great help if you’re looking for someone or want to improve the partnership you already have.

The Easy Route

The first of the two routes this post is going to cover is much easier than the second one. As a result of this ease, you will lose some of your freedom and could be restricted to the styles which your salon artist feels most comfortable with. The person working on your hair is the best place to go when you’re trying to find a new style. With loads of experience working with the different face and head shapes, they will have a great insight into what will look good on you without having to make any changes to test it out.

This sort of method is so effective that a lot of salons will offer it as a service. Often called something along the lines of a hair consultation or creative cutting session, you will usually get this sort of treatment as part of the cost of the cut. This makes it silly not to take advantage of, even if you’re only getting an opinion or advice, and a lot of people will benefit from it. While taking away some of your freedom, it will increase your chances of getting it right the first time by a huge margin. Of course, though, it’s always worth asking for a second opinion if you’re not sure about what is being suggested.

Something More Creative

A lot of people won’t like the idea of putting their style into someone else’s hands. However capable, they will rarely be able to capture something which you truly love, and this is a shame when you’re looking for something new. Finding your own style to go from can be hard, and it will take some research and learning along the way. You can find some examples of the best places to both learn and find inspiration during this process. With this in mind, anyone will be able to craft the perfect look for themselves.

Look To The Stars: Celebrities are often the very first people to pick up and start new trends which dominate the world of fashion. To use this knowledge to your advantage, you will have to keep a close eye on the world of the stars, and this can be achieved through a couple of different ways. A lot of your favorite personalities will have their own websites, magazine spots, and even TV shows which will give you a chance to see what they’re rocking at any given time. The world of modern media has made this part of people’s lives incredibly accessible.

An Online Library: Thanks to its size and scope, the Internet is one of the best resources out there for people looking to spruce up their style. Of course, though, you have to know where to look if you want to find the best inspiration, and this could take some time. Blogs are one of the best ways to achieve a goal like this, as they will give you the chance to discover more options than anywhere else while getting the personal approach which comes with this field. Once you find a site you really like, it will be easy to stick with them and read their content for years to come.

Those Close To You: The people you see every day are one of the best tools you have when you’re thinking about styles which could suit you. Having seen you from all angles, they will have a much better idea of the sort of styles which might suit you than you will. By running your ideas past those that care about you, you will ensure that you don’t make any mistakes which will almost certainly look bad. This sort of option is great for anyone with relatives or friends of the same gender, though it might not if it becomes more diverse.

Social Media: Finally, as the last tool to consider, everyone is on social media, nowadays. Websites like Instagram and Pinterest are prime examples of this, each playing host to millions of users, with a good portion of them sharing photos of hair. Using clever tagging systems, these services are very easy to search, and a lot of people will already be used to this. It can help to have a photograph of yourself handy to enable you to compare your face shape to those in the images you find.

Hopefully, this post will be the inspiration you need to start working on new styles for the hair on your head. This has always been a very important part of the body in most societies, with decorations, ceremonies, and even festivals dedicated to it. Of course, though, it won’t feel important until you love it, and this could take a little bit of work.


Wife, mother, grandma, blogger, all wrapped into one person, although it does not define her these are roles that are important to her. Entering into their 'empty nest' stage in life, Becky, and her husband Roger are learning to live with their youngest away at school more than not. Becky enjoys way too many TV programs but her favorites are normally criminal based or something to make her laugh. Keep an eye out because 2018 is going to be her year!

I seriously need to be more bold when it comes to trying new hair styles. I never really make any significant changes to my look. I’m going to try to do so this year.
