How to Choose the Best Hairstyle to Compliment Your Lifestyle

Premiere beauty salons

Women either love or hate to change their hairstyle. A quarter of that time, the change is to “reinvent” themselves. For another third, a new hairstyle can be a way of trying to feel more confident or to help recover from a recent breakup or divorce. Then again, 44% of women who changed their hair style did so out of sheer boredom. Researches found that the typical woman will change her hair color, style or layering 104 times throughout her life. Whatever your reason for considering a visit to one of your local hair salons, we’ve compiled a few tips on how to ensure that new style will match with your current (or new) lifestyle.

How much time do you want to spend styling each day?

How you spend your time, or how you like to spend your time, can play a major role in determining the best hairstyle for you. Do you typically wake up early to spend time in front of the mirror preparing for the day? Or are you the type who rolls out of bed five minutes before you’re due somewhere? Some cuts fall into the “wash and wear” category while others will require more TLC to keep them styled and fresh. How much time do you realistically hope to spend styling and caring for your hair? If you’re looking for low-maintenance, a short bob could be a good choice.

What does a typical day involve?

Similar to the above question, it’s also important to think beyond your morning routine to what a day in the life of you looks like. Do you work from home where the only one who may care what you look like is your cat? Do you have a job that requires meeting with clients throughout the day? If you do a lot of face-to-face consulting, you may want a more stylish cut; and if those face-to-face meetings require a lot of running around, you may want to keep that stylish cut low-maintenance.

Save pictures of hair styles you like

If you notice a picture in a magazine of a woman with a hair style that catches your eye, cut it out or snap a picture of it with your smartphone. The internet is an endless source of images to sort through as well. You can take these images to hair salons with you so the stylist can cut your hair to match. Before you make an appointment at any local beauty salons, however, take into account how your face shape compares to that of the woman in the photograph you chose.

Consider your face shape

The shape of your face is one of the best determinants of how a given style will look on you. There are a couple ways to determine the shape of your face. One way is to trace the outline of your reflection in a mirror. Alternatively, you could pull out a ruler and compare the width to the length of your face.

If they’re the same, you have a round face. Long layers are a great option for round faces. A slightly uneven cut that falls at certain angles of your face to accentuate your best features is another good option for adding definition to a rounder face.

If the length of your face is around 1.5 times larger than the width, you fall into the oval category. Oval face shapes pair well with an out grown lob. A stylist at one of the premier beauty salons can help cut your hair to accentuate different features of your face. For faces with a length that’s more than 1.5 times their width, thick waves and layers can be a nice option as they’ll help disguise the length of your face.

The shape of your jaw also determines your face shape: a distinct jawline generally signals a square face, while a small jaw creates a heart-shaped face. Blunt bangs are a great option for heart-shaped faces, while a diamond cut can compliment a square face.

Go to only the best hair salons

The key to a good hair cut is finding quality hair salons. Premiere beauty salons offer the widest range of hair services of all hair salons, from cuts and coloring to Brazilian blowout services.
