Tired of long hair and want a change but unsure whether to take the leap?
Below are some important things to consider before changing from long to short hair and booking in for a restyle.
1. IS IT ACHIEVABLE EVERY DAY?
Have you fallen in love with an “effortless, messy, textured bob” you saw on a model or celebrity?
In many cases, hair inspiration shown to our stylists is a model or celebrity who has undergone a professional blowdry – even though the style may appear naturally effortless.
Ask yourself, is it a blowdry or the cut that makes the style great?
2. FACE SHAPE
Your face shape can make or break a style or cut. Unsure? Talk to our stylists for recommendations about what length and style will best suit your face shape.
Two advantages of short hair are less drying and styling time. Oribe and Pureology texture sprays make it even easier (both of which we sell in the salon).
A short hair style does mean you’ll probably need to book in for more frequent hair cuts, so this should be a consideration.
5. THAT AWKWARD PHASE
If you decide to transition back to long hair, there is that in-between time when you go through that “awkward length”.
6. EASE INTO IT
And finally, we often recommend easing into the transition from long to short hair. Don’t go short in one session but work your way up to it with a series of haircuts. Get a feel for the style and whether you’re ready to go shorter.
