Do you dread having your hair cut?
Are you wary of sitting in the stylist's chair facing yourself looking like a drowned cat?
Is it difficult to explain what you're looking for in a new cut or style?

If you answered Yes to any or all of these questions it's time to arm yourself with the tools that will impact your next visit with your stylist. All in the name of Change.
What shape face do you have?
The correct cut can soften a square jaw, slenderize a full, round face or balance a sharp chin and broad forehead. The guide below shows different face shapes along with celebrities that share them. By studying the changing hair styles of the woman you most relate with, you may be able to find a style that suits you. The choices will be unlimited.
How much time are you willing to spend on your hair?
Even the best cut won't make you happy if you don't have the time to properly style it. Some cuts are wash and go while others require more intense styling efforts. There are also styles that can be pinned up for daily wear and let down for dressier events.
Do you have the proper tools to style your hair?
Combs, brushes, rollers, flat irons? Root lifter, heat protectant spray, gels, mousse, argan oil, hair spray (light, medium, strong), and the list can go on and on. Yes, a proper hair cut is the first step, but without the proper styling tools you'll never achieve the look you want. Although your stylist is your best resource for product knowledge, they are also known to up-sell products for extra commission. With that said, have an honest conversation with your stylist and be honest about how much you can spend on products. You should be pleasantly surprised when he/she recommends products that will fit your budget.
Overall, with a bit of research and time, Yes you can have hair you'll Love.
