So…When IS the Right Time For A Short Hair
The short hair cut is as popular as ever and more and more
women are taking the plunge and sporting ultra-short locks.
From the heavily textured and spiked to the soft and feminine,
there is no doubt that the short hair cut is here to stay
and has proven to be one of the most popular hair cut styles
But how do you know if you should go short with your new
hair cut or when you should take the plunge? For most, the
answer to these questions is going to be a personal decision,
but there are some guidelines that you can follow to help
you decide whether or not a short hair cut is for you.
Choosing the right hair cut style should be a joint effort
between you and your stylist. With her professional advice
as to what will look sensational on you and your personal
preference, together you should be able to find numerous new
hair cuts that are perfect for your individual personality,
tastes and features.
When to go for the short hair cut and when not to
You should choose a short hair cut if you prefer shorter
styles or if you have been thinking about going short for
a while. If you have already worn a short hair cut in the
past and loved it, then you are one step ahead of the game.
Likely, you will have a good idea of what short cuts will
look good on you and which cuts will give you the most styling
ease and freedom.
You should not choose a short hair cut just because it is
trendy or you saw it on someone else and want to achieve the
same effect. While some hair cut styles will look just as
great on you as they do on others, getting a short hair cut
on a whim is never a good idea. If you see something you like,
think about it for a while before deciding to get a new hair
cut. Even better - use one of the interactive online hair
galleries, to test out the look before you buy
Never get a short hair cut for emotional reasons. Having
a bad hair day? Do not cut your hair off in anger. If you
do, you may end up fighting with dreaded tresses that are
much too short for your particular style. Instead, go for
a trim or a style that is just slightly shorter than the one
you already have.
How to go short
If you have never had a short hair cut, you should go shorter
gradually to reduce the level of shock experienced with getting
a short hair cut and to see if you are going to like wearing
shorter styles. Be prepared to experience some level of shock,
though, even if you only shorten your style by a few inches.
Talk to your stylist and decide what type of short hair cut
is your ultimate goal. Then, choose several hair cut styles
that you can get over the course of a few months that will
decrease your hair's length gradually. That way when you finally
take the plunge and get the short hair cut you will know that
you will be comfortable with it. Nothing is worse than trying
to grow out a short hair cut that you hate.
