There's nothing worse than a bad haircut, especially if you've gone with a short style. It can take forever to grow out. In the meantime, you're stuck with a haircut that you just can't work with. That's why you need to make sure you do everything you can to avoid the bad haircut. With a little planning, you can get the cut that you'll be happy with. Here are four steps you can take to make sure you don't walk away with haircut remorse.
Bring Pictures with You
It's not always easy for your stylist to know what you want. Unfortunately, that can leave you with a haircut that you just didn't want. To avoid mistakes, and eliminate the potential for haircut remorse, it's a good idea to bring a few pictures with you. Pictures that show the style from every angle, will give your stylist a clear view of what you want. Not only that, but the pictures will give your stylist the opportunity to determine if your chosen style is right for your hair type and facial structure.
Take It in Stages
If you've decided that it's time to make a drastic change to your hair style, don't do it all at once. This is particularly important if you're going from long hair to an extremely short style. Going drastic all at once is a good way to end up with a serious case of haircut remorse. To give yourself a chance to adjust to the change, do it in stages. It may require you to schedule several hair cutting appointments, but you'll avoid the stress that can be associated with making a drastic change to your hair all at once.
Get Some Training
When it comes to a new hair style, it's all about the training. Your haircut won't look like the picture unless you know the proper way to style it. If you're not sure how to style your new haircut, ask your stylist for some special training. Your stylist will be able to walk you through the proper way to style your hair so that it looks right every time.
Use the Right Styling Products
You might not know this, but when it comes to styling your hair, it all starts with the products you use. If you're not using the right products, your hair won't look its best. To make sure you've got everything you need for your style, have your stylist help you select the right products before you leave the salon.
