How you choose to style your hair isn’t just about the way it looks and feels; there are many other areas to consider, such as the maintenance of a particular style and how your ideal look may take more effort than you’d first hoped!
Here’s some styling thoughts so you can be comfortable and happy with your do.
Think How Much Effort, Time and Money You’re Willing to Put In
For any hairstyle and any gender, you need to first decide how much maintenance you’re willing to work with for the perfect hair. There’s no point spending time and money achieving a specific look if, down the line, it’s going to be too much hassle for you.
Therefore, a good starting point is to decide how long you want to spend styling your hair; then, you will need to decide on the hair budget allowance you’re willing to spend. Certain looks may appear fantastic on models and on others, but you may be surprised at the reality (and expense) of the upkeep of that particular look.
When creating a styling budget, think about the expense of hair products, the expense of visiting hairdressers or barbers, and any extra expenses such as colouring (and how often this will need to be done).
Once you’ve decided how much time and money you’re willing to spend, you can move on to creating the best look for you within those means.
For Male Styles
Decide on Length
There are many different styles you can try based on length, but growing your hair out can be more annoying for male hair than it can for females, simply because it looks more out of place or more untidy when not trimmed back. The in-between stage when growing to longer lengths can be tough, but it’s worth it if you’ve always wanted to rock the long hair look.
If you’re struggling to find a look that you’re confident and comfortable with due to problems with your hair, such as thinning hair or issues with hair loss, there are great solutions, such as FUE hair transplants, which can help you to rebuild your confidence.
Think About Facial Hair, Too
Facial hair can easily become an integral part of your overall hairstyle, so you’ll want to think about that, too. Longer beards will need as much maintenance and grooming as your head hair will, so think of it as a package deal and don’t neglect your beard styling.
For Female Styles
Think About the Seasons
The weather and seasons can play an important part in how you choose to style your hair. For example, longer and thicker hairstyles may cause havoc in the warmer months, forcing you to simply pin it back and want it out of your face. Therefore, you may want to opt for a manageable cut based on the season (a shorter, more manageable style in the summer may be a boon).
Furthermore, you can change your hair colour based on seasonal style. Lighter colours may work better for summer, especially if the sun tends to lighten your hair anyway.
Care For Your Tools
Many popular styles will rely on the proper use of haircare tools. Be sure to invest in dependable brushes, curlers, straighteners, and clips — anything which is essential for your particular style.
Most importantly: have fun with your hair and be confident!
