It usually takes a jolt to do anything that would fundamentally change our look. But it’s worth it. If no one has given you a second glance in a while and you are tired of tying the same boring ponytail, it’s time for a snip…
Your hairstyle hasn’t changed since ages
You have evolved through the years and so has your sense of fashion but not your hairstyle. It’s high time you altered that too. Hairstylist Savio Pereira suggests you to get inspired by collecting images of cuts and styles you wish to have. Hurry and schedule an appointment!
You look older than you really are
Even though you might humbly grace greying, often when the grey strands are visible at a young age, you tend to look older than you are. Consider a colour change or head in to shorten the length of your hair to look chic as they age.
Your hair has no volume
With the increasing level of pollution and almost no time to oil and nourish your hair every week, the hair starts losing out on volume. “When you feel your hair is flat on the crown and has no movement even after a blow dry, it is time for you to go in for a new hairstyle,” says Sylvia Chen hairstylist. A haircut with added layers will retain the length and will inject life and energy to your hair.
Your hair colour has begun to fade out
You are planning to go for a party and you notice that your hair colour has begun to fade out, and you don’t want people to start noticing the little strands of grey hair. Head to a salon straight away and ask your hairstylist for a new look. Add deeper, warmer streaks using peroxide and ammonia-free shades in burgundy and mahogany to add loads of dimension without damaging your hair.
No one compliments your long-black-straight-hair
You’d had people complimenting your long straight hair 5 years back. But now no one notices it! Turn heads by a simple twist to your present hairstyle. Hairstylists recommend setting your strands on hot rollers. Of all the styling tools, the hot rollers produce the sexiest and the softest waves.
You are bored with your current hairstyle
A most common one though, you should not overlook this. The moment you feel that you’ve had enough of the present look; you should straight away head in for a hair make-over. Browse through some of the fashion portals, the fashion weeks and choose the one you think you look best. Do not be wary of trying out bold haircuts, they are in this season!
Limp and dull hair
You might like the length of your hair and be quite happy with your hairstyle, but often the hair becomes dull and boring. Chen explains, “The hair needs a cut or a trim every three to four months. Though the hair is growing constantly, however due to regular use of styling products or wash and external factors like exposure to sun, air and dust, the hair develops split ends and becomes dull and limp and loses its texture. This is the time you should go in for a haircut or a hair make-over.”
When your partner says ‘you still look the same’
When your partner says ‘you still look the same,’ he is not referring to your overall look always. He is looking for a change in your hairstyle too! Ask your hair expert to give you an interesting look to surprise him when you get back home. Pereira says, “If you have long hair, you could opt for layers and shorten your hair upto your shoulders and if you have medium-length, you could go in for a flared bob.”
Always sporting a pony
You wouldn’t want your hair to look like a lizard’s tail! Chen says, “You can add some layers and locks to your mane to wear them down.” If you do not want to shorten the length of your hair, you can always add layers or bangs to add more volume to your hair. This will help you can wear them in any way you want to and not tie them up all the time.
You fail miserably every time you try to style your hair
If styling your hair takes more than 15-20 minutes, then your cut is clearly not making the most of your texture. In this case, ask your stylist to give you a hair cut or style that is easy to maintain and can be styled in just five to 10 minutes.
