Thing to Know Before you Cut your Hair

If you have long or medium hair, you can choose to chop it off during summer. But before you go ahead to and cut your hair you need to take some few things into account. The following are the items you should know before taking this move.

Face Shape

First of all, short haircuts can flatter most of the face shapes according to hair stylists. If you have a triangle, diamond or oval face shape, you need to avoid cuts which can make your face look long as these haircuts will make the hair fall below the chin.

If your face is round and short, you need to let the hair volume go beyond the ears. Apart from the hair length, if your face is circular, a straight fringe can make your face appear smaller. A blunt bang can, however, be suitable for oval faces.

Texture matters

If you have straight and slippers or tight coils, then any cut can suit you. The choice of the cut will depend on your balance and texture. Whether you have curly or straight hair, the volume of the hair will look bigger when it is cut. If however, you have long hair, then the gravity plays a role.

Color choice

Here it is vital to keep in mind that whatever works for long hair may not necessarily work for the short hair. This is true more so if you have highlights which look choppy and misplaced when cut. You need to choose colors which will match the new hairstyle.

Know yourself

According to professional hair stylists, if you bring in the picture, it helps the stylist a big deal. You may, however, want to ensure the picture is realistic. You need to look for references and images which match your hair and then let the stylist see these pictures. The stylist can see if the hairstyle will be able to suit your face. You must let them know your daily routine as well.

After cutting off all the hair

These are the things you should consider before getting a haircut. Your hair needs to suit your face otherwise you will not look your best.
