How To Choose the Right New Hairstyle

Choosing a new hairstyle is an important decision, and we want to help those who come to our hairdressers in Hitchin make the right choice. That’s why we have decided to put together a blog all about this, giving you some top tips to help you choose the right hairstyle for you.

So here are our top five tips for choosing the right hairstyle…


1. Think about your face shape.

You’ve probably not thought about it too much, but your face shape plays a big part in whether a hairstyle suits you or not. There are three main categories of face shape that most people fit into – oval, round and square. If you have an oval face, the length of your face is one and a half times the width. Good news for those with oval faces – they can successful wear almost any hairstyle! If you have a round face, the length of your face is around the same as the width. In this case, it’s best to choose hairstyles that slim your face. People with square faces have similar dimensions to round faces, but tend to have a strong jaw line. These people best suit a longer look.


2. Ask your stylist at your hairdressers in Hitchin.

The best place to go for advice on a new hairstyle is your hairdresser in Hitchin. They know your hair well, and know what hairstyles will flatter you and which won’t. If you are struggling to come to a decision, or just want assurance that a hairstyle you like will look good on you, they are your best point of call.


3. Think about your hair type.

Different hairstyles suit thick or thin hair better, and the same goes for straight or curly hair. For example, if you have really thick hair a short bob is probably not the look to go for. There’s not many people that have enough spare hours to cope with the daily styling that goes along with that. If you have thinner hair on the other hand, shorter hair is the way to go as it will look fuller the shorter it is. If you have curly hair, a fringe is not usually the best way to go as it is just an invitation to frizziness!


4. Think about how long you have to style your hair each day.

A hairstyle might look great when you have lots of time to make it look right, but what if you don’t have the time every day? For example, if you live a busy lifestyle and you choose a hairstyle that needs an hour of styling in the morning to make it look right, it’s probably not going to work out well for you. Think about your lifestyle and how long you have available to style your hair when considering a new hairstyle.


5. Research the latest trends.

There’s nothing worse than having an outdated hairstyle and being stuck with it. Take a look at the current trends and make sure the hairstyle you are considering doesn’t look old fashioned in comparison to these. Some trends don’t stay for long too though, so try not to go for a hairstyle trend that you know will soon fade away.


We hope these five tips help you choose your new hairstyle! If you need any help deciding on your next hairstyle, please don’t hesitate to talk to our stylists at our hairdressers in Hitchin who would be happy to advise you.
