Here are some things to consider before making your next big hair decision.

Face Shape Matters
Your face shape is a good place to start when choosing a new hairstyle. It helps determine which style will frame your face in the most flattering way. The main thing to consider is we want to enhance what you love about your face and distract from any feature you don't. For example, if you have love your cheek bones curtain bange can help draw attention and enhance this. On the other hand, people who feel that they have a round face or a wide jaw line probably don’t want a short bob that would end at the widest part and enhance this, but rather have a long layered cut to draw the eye down and lengthen their face. When looking at hairstyle online look at the person’s face shape with that style, do they have a similar face shape to you? That can help you decide if it would also suit you.

Hair Type Is Key
Your texture is also very important when deciding on a new style. If you have wavy or curly hair, then this needs to be considered. Is the style you are looking at curly? Or are you going to style it straight and are you prepared to do that? Or do you need another service like keratin smoothing or permanent straightening?

Have lots of fuzzy, thick unruly hair? Short bobs may not be the best choice since they tend to suit a smooth finish (consider questions above). Similarly, if you have very fine hair, long and straight hair might not work well with lots of layers as the ends could end up looking really fine and whispy. The key here is to choose something that works with the natural texture of your hair so that it looks effortless and polished all day long!

Personal Style Counts

There's no need to stick with what’s trendy if it doesn't make sense for your individual look; instead, embrace something unique that really speaks to who YOU are as a person!
