Getting a great cut can greatly determine how your locks look on you. Even if you have the best tresses a bad cut can ruin the overall effect that it has on the structure of your face. Here are some helpful tips to make sure that you get the right cut that will suit your style, personality and face.
Go to a good salon
This point cannot be stressed enough. Just like any other cosmetic treatment that you would want to get done, the way that you look after your tresses too will have a huge impact on you. Therefore, going to a good Greenvale hairdresser that has enough expertise and skill to make you look your best is crucial. Look up the kind of work that they have done in the past and compare it with what you have in mind for your cut and see if it is compatible. Even when looking at the price, compare it with a few other salons and determine if their services are actually worth it.
Determine the shape of your face
Knowing the shape of your face can greatly help you figure out the basic fundamentals of the cut that you will be getting. Even if you are to get in a few weft hair extensions, or something along those lines, you should know how lengthy you need to keep it for the best effect. For example a person with a round face can pull off a boy’s crop cut, pixie hair, barely visible layers that reach the jaws, long layers and medium length bobs. A person with a heart shaped face can pull off bangs, layers and feathering, short pixie cuts and gradient cuts well. Therefore knowing what kind of face you have will help you decide the style that is best for you with the length of your locks.
Determine the final effect that you want to accomplish
Every makeover needs to have a final goal in mind. When you walk into the salon, you need to know what you need to look like when you walk out again. For this look at the feel that you are trying to create. Are you short and want to add length or the opposite? Maybe take away from really sharp cheekbones or draw emphasis to them? Maybe you want to add more volume to your locks or give it a bit of bounce? These are things that will help you determine the final effect. Do a bit of research and discuss with your stylist before you finally decide on something.
