Hairstyle Tips: Is It Time for a Change?

Never underestimate the power of your hairstyle to add to your professional image or to undermine it. Having a professional image is more than having nice clothes. It is creating a look that is harmonious which means paying attention to all aspects of image – makeup, skincare, clothing, posture, body type, accessories, etiquette and hair. If either of the aspects of image is discarded the whole look is ruined. Hairstyle and hair upkeep play a major role in creating a professional image and keeping your look up-to-date is a must. To keep your hair looking great avoid these mistakes:

1. Wearing a lot of hairstyle products to keep your hair “in place” will leave your hair looking stiff and unattractive. Hair should be soft, natural and able to move.

2. Do you still have the same hairstyle you had in high school? Take out an old picture and have a look. If you answered ‘yes’ there is no doubt that it is time for a change. Also, if you are over the age of thirteen don’t put barrettes or bows in your hair.

3. If you have curly hair and use straightening products and tools daily to get the look you want you are probably working too hard. Take pride in your curls and use products that enhance your hair’s naturalness and use straightening products sparingly.

4. If you make a slight change in your hairstyle and the compliments start pouring in it could be that your friends are giving you subtle hints and it is time for a change.

5. If it seems that your hair never looks the way you want and you end up wearing a ponytail most of the time it is time for a cut and style.

6. The number one hair buster is roots that show – especially if they are grown out an inch or more. Before you color your hair decide if it is something that you will continue to do. If not, don’t do it.

7. When you color your hair take your skin tone into consideration. For instance, if you have extremely white skin, don’t color your hair black. As you age, your skin color changes. Keep this in mind when choosing hair color and ask your hairstylist for recommendations.
