How To Use A Picture Of Hair Style To Find
Your New Look
Most people choose their new hair style by looking at a
picture of a hair style or browsing hair style photos. This
can be a great way to find the perfect look, but there are
some guidelines that you should keep in mind when looking
at pictures of hair styles. Doing so can help you avoid hair
disasters and guarantee that you come out looking like your
chosen hairstyle picture.
You can find pictures of hair styles in style books and portfolios
found at most salons, in fashion magazines, and in online
hair style photo galleries. All of these ways can give you
numerous ideas and a picture of hair style that you can carry
with you to discuss your new style with your beautician. By
seeing a picture of hair style, both you and your stylist
can have a realistic expectation of what your new style will
look like and how to achieve it.
Have you ever found the perfect hairstyle picture only to
come out of the salon looking nothing like the woman in the
picture? Most blame it on their stylist. While part of the
blame can be put on the stylist for not pointing out your
picture of hair style blunder, most often the blame lies with
choosing the wrong hairstyle picture to compliment your face
shape and hair texture.
A picture of hair style is a representation of what the woman
in the hair style photo looks like with a particular style.
You can not realistically expect to look like the picture
of a hair style because you are not that woman; your hair
and structure are different. But you can selectively choose
your pictures of hair styles and eliminate the ones that would
be disastrous for you by following a few pointers.
1. When browsing through pictures of hair styles, be sure
to pay extra attention to the type and texture of hair that
the lady in the hairstyle picture has. Is her hair coarse,
thin, wavy, or straight? Try to find pictures of hair styles
with hair types that closely resemble your own. Keep in mind
that a picture of a hair style may look great with a particular
model because she has thick and naturally curly hair, but
the same hair style may not look so great on someone with
thin, limp hair.
2. Often, pictures of hair styles are taken of models with
perfect bone structures. It is very rare that you find a picture
of hair style with a model trying to conceal a too-high hair
line, prominent nose or under-developed chin. If you have
features that you wish to highlight or diminish, pay special
attention to the style in the picture of hair style. Would
the style in the picture of hair style compliment your features
or take away from them?
3. Use an interactive online photo gallery. You can upload
your photo and use it to test how you might look with lots
of different hair style photos. This is a great way to "try
before you buy" to avoid expensive mistakes when you
go to the salon. For a review of the best interactive online
photo galleries, go to http://www.great-hairstyles.com/hair-article-resources.html.
Once you find a few hair style photos that you think are
perfect for you, ask your stylist for her opinion on your
chosen pictures of hair styles. He or she will be able to
tell you without a doubt whether or not your selected hair
style will be picture perfect for you.
