Choosing a Style That’s Right for You!
Whether you’re looking for a complete makeover or just want to freshen up a tried-and-tested hairdo, our George Street hairdressers, in Bath, will be able to advise you on the look that’s best for you. As well as highlighting current hair trends, they’ll assist you with important considerations such as: your hair type, face shape, personality and lifestyle.
Some hair types are more suited to certain hairstyles than others, so our highly experienced hairdressers at Artizan George Street Townhouse are always on hand to advise you before you commit to a new look. Tell them as much as possible about your hair and they will help you identify, not only your hair type, but also the styles that will work best for you (see also ‘Tips for Your Hair Type’).
The easiest way to identify your face shape is to draw carefully around the reflection of your face (not hair) in the mirror with lipstick. Once identified, our ‘Styles for Your Face Shape’ tips can help you choose the best style for you. Remember to tell your stylist if you wear glasses as this can affect what suits you.
Be realistic about what you can achieve with your current hair length. If your hair is short, the only way you’re going to achieve a sharp-edged bob or long, flowing locks is by taking the time to grow out your current style or with costly hair extensions! Short hair is a fabulous choice for people with a busy life, saving hours of time in front of the mirror each morning. It works particularly well for oval, round and heart-shaped faces, as well as those with small features (see also ‘Styles for Your Face Shape’).
There are many benefits to opting for a fringe. It can soften your face, give it definition, disguise a high forehead, and even help to hide wrinkles! And what you may not know is there’s a fringe to suit every face shape and hair type.
Hair layering is great for adding movement and texture to fine hair, and for thinning out thicker hair, making it easier to style. Layers can also add a touch of femininity to round, long or angular features.
There’s no replacement for a good haircare routine combined with a healthy diet, but a regular deep-conditioning treatment will help to give your hair a glossy sheen. For an immediate boost, try an all-over semi-permanent colour.
Think about how much time and money you are prepared to devote to your new haircut before you make your final decision. Remember, bold colours need regular touch-ups, and if you’re a sporty or outdoors type, you may soon tire of a high-maintenance style.
A new you?
Everybody needs a change sometimes, but remember – a radical restyle could mean you also need to revamp your make-up and wardrobe. If you do want a dramatic new look, beware of slavishly following the latest hairdressing trends. The most important consideration is that your new hair or colour choice suits you and your lifestyle!
