Ever thought about mixing it up a bit? I mean going lighter, darker, shorter, or even more colorful. Is your hair accenting your best features? Could it be better? If you're like me and think of your hair as an accessory, these things might have crossed your mind a time or two.
What if you make that change and it's not love? How can you be sure that it's going to work out before investing time and money? Here are some strategies to help you make good choices:
Sleep on it. When you find that picture or pin on Pinterest that really strikes a chord, hang onto it and spend time thinking on it. Impulsive decisions can be exciting, but could also leave you longing for the hair you had before. Waiting doesn't cost anything and ensures that you are committed to the change.
Try it out. There's an app for that. No, really! Style My Hair is the app du jour from L'Oréal Professionnel where you can try various cuts, colors, and styles on your own head. Plus, it's free! Upload a photo of yourself facing forward to the app and play with any of the options. No commitment, no financial investment, no sweat!
Consult a professional. The pros at Metal Salon are knowledgeable about hair textures, density, face shapes, skin tones, maintenance, and other factors. The artists here will advise as to whether or not a style or color would work in your favor during a consultation. It might take time to achieve the results, and that is also communicated. The stylist may also have suggestions on how to adapt the look just for you.
Change is good when you feel empowered! Taking steps to make that happen might be a little extra, but trust me, it's worth it! Why not give it a go, even if it's just for fun?
Here's something a little different on me. What do you think?
