Getting a complete style transformation can be an exciting yet scary thing. Especially when you are doing something
dramatic that’s on the opposite end of the entire spectrum of a vibrant color change or a bold cut. Can you imagine going in for a make-over only to walk out completely hating your new look and regretting your decision?
Unfortunately, this is the case for far too many women because they didn’t make the proper preparations ahead of time. To make sure this doesn’t happen to you, here are 5 tips you can follow!
1. Have a plan, or don’t…
You first have to define why you are even doing a style transformation, and what exactly do you want. Whether you’re going through a quarter-life crisis, just getting over a bad break-up, or even just to randomly shake things up, determine why you feel the “need” to do a big change.
Once that is pinpointed, you want to develop a plan. What change are you going for? Do you want to cut your long flowing locks into a short pixie cut? Do you want to dye your hair an ash blonde or a bold deep purple? What do you want to do?!
You could very well go in without a plan at all, which some choose to do. The risk in doing this is that you’re putting all of your trust into your stylist to execute whatever they think will look best on you. If you really want to shock yourself, go for it!
If you’re taking the route to go in with a plan, research is vital. Just as I mentioned earlier about determining what exact look you are going for, make sure you’re doing the proper research behind it.
This includes finding the style you wish to mimic. You also want to make sure that you will be able to maintain your natural hair health with the change. Meaning, if you’re doing a drastic short pixie cut, do you have the proper tools to style it? Will you be able to afford to return to the salon to get it cut and styled on a regular?
Or if you’re doing a color such as blonde, will you be able to take the extra steps to keep your hair moisturized and conditioned?
