1.Trying a new salon? Use pictures to communicate not duplicate or imitate. As simple as short, medium or long is different for many people; beware of the hairdressers inch.
2.Most bad hair experiences are the result of poor communication between the client and the professional. Listen carefully and repeat what you agree to. So the hair will touch my shoulders?
3.The single mistake woman in their 40s make is holding on to the exact same hairstyle that served them well in college. Only Liza Minnelli can wear the same hair for 50 years!
4.If youre young, be daring. Change it up in small ways; new hair color, new lipstick, layers or a fringe. Change will keep you young and in step with fashions quick changing rhythms.
5.Jennifer Anistons Friends haircut worked for her and so many women; however, even successful looks must change. Can you imagine wearing Farrah Fawcetts hair like the original version, or Dorothy Hamil on ice? Even Madonna doesnt look great in Farrah!
6.Heres a style choice tipif you can say I used to wear my hair like that, dont try it again; it will make you look as if youre locked in a time zone. Let the young gals go retro; think Gwen Stefani.
7.Minimize bad hair days; get an expert haircut, great color, maintain the quality of your hair whenever using chemicals or heating tools excessively; curling irons, blow-dryer or flat irons. Have your professional give you a lesson on how to use the right tools.
8.Whether you wear your hair long, medium or short, wavy, curly or straight, red, blonde or brunette; its all good. To be in step with fashion its all in your attitude. Have fun and remember what mom says; walk straight, and wear the look with confidence.
9.Sexy hair needs to be touchable. Too much hair spray, gel or mousse wont allow someone to run their fingers through your hair. That tip is for the guys too.
10.Beware of the kitchen beautician. Having your hair done in someones den, kitchen or basement is very risky. There is no Board of Health regulation, no insurance, no mandatory licensing, and no one to complain to when a bad hair experience takes place. Often, bootleg or counterfeit products are used. The biggest trap is the person providing the service isnt as up to date as they should be. Sometimes its cheaper, but is it worth the risk? Believe me, there are other professionals that can do your hair just as well if not better, in a professional environment.
11.If your stylist isnt suggesting change from season to season, maybe its time to change your stylist. Change is good; sometimes a fresh point of view is a blessing. Dont let your stylist be lulled into complacency.
12.Sometimes a new hairstyle feels great the minute you look in the mirror. More often, it may take a few days to adjust to yourself when looking in the mirror. After a new cut that hasnt met your expectations, lock yourself in your bathroom and work your hair until you own it. Your touch will personalize the look.
13.Be careful not to get too trendy. Knowing the difference between fashion and style is key. Fashion is a short term, public idea; Style is long term and personal. Find you looks uniqueness and allow it to influence your style. If you have gorgeous red hair, flaunt it. If you have curls that defy control, set them free. If your hair is pin straight, you need an exquisite haircut. Make sure your hair, makeup and color fits into your lifestyle.
14.Your stylist must be able to understand your lifestyle in order to make the right suggestions. Are you bohemian, eco friendly? Are you a fashionista? Are you classic or contemporary? High fashion styling wont work on a woman with classic taste. Once again, communicate; let your stylist know as much about you as possible. One word of caution: some information should be kept private.
15.Sexy hair comes in all types and colors, just like people. First and foremost; sex appeal is an attitude. Your hair and makeup should be an extension of who you are not an example of your hairstylists skills. I prefer when the stylists signature is quiet, and the clients presence does the talking. Amongst some professionals, its all about their work and not enough about you. Find the right Pro.
16.Once youve had a consultation and have decided to go for the new look; trust your decision and the stylist doing the work. Dont look at the hair that falls to the floor; rather, look at whats left and how exciting the new you is.
