When to Change Hairstyles
My 3 rules for changing hairstyle
- It has been more than 3 years since you really changed the style of your hair
- You feel like your life is stagnant whether it is your career, family, relationship, or money. Making one change often leads to others – start with your hair and see what happens.
- Your fashion and your hairstyle don’t seem to match
If any one of these criteria match then it’s time to change that hair!
Now you are ready to decide on a new hair style, I admit it’s tricky and you can never be sure. My best advice for this phase of change is take no more than 1 week to decide, preferably no more than 48 hours. Chances are if you are thinking about changing your hair you have been thinking about it for a while. Sit down with a friend, a hair style magazine, your stylist or all three and hash out some ideas; then you’ve got to just do it.
