A beautiful hairstyle makes you look beautiful, but if getting it right takes forever every morning, how good is it for you really? A high-maintenance hairdo is interesting, but if’s becoming a daily pain, you might as well go for something simpler.
The idea is to choose something you wear anywhere, like running errand or buying something from the store. You don’t have to be all out in such scenarios. Your hair just needs to be respectable-looking and flattering to your features. Then on special events, you can always wear that style you’ve always loved.
Why do you need that kind of distinction? Because the fact is that your hairstyle has an influence on your daily life. And keeping it good has much to do with your current lifestyle and personality, two factors that usually get ignored, consciously or unconsciously, when people choose a hairstyle.
The point is that people are judging you and making conclusions about you just by your hairstyle. It’s unfair but it’s reality.
The question is, what is your hair conveying about you? That is the point where lifestyle and personality enter the mix.
Lifestyle is a practicality issue. Do you live in a place where the weather is warm? Do you get sweaty on a normal day? Maybe you like to just ponytail your hair. Obviously, your hair needs to be long enough for that kind of hairstyle.
Is formal attire required at your workplace? If so, you should go with a more traditional hairstyle instead of something artsy.
Any subcultures you’re a part of? Punk or goth? Each one has its own range of hairstyles that they are popular for.
Maybe you don’t really have any particular group but you’ve always been more of the edgy type as an individual. If you’re more of the independent woman-of-the-world type than a girly girl, shorter hairstyles and pixie cuts will perfectly express this trait. You might even want to color your hair. If it’s what you want deep down inside, there’s no reason not to do it.
There are people who can pull off short hair better than others (usually depends on facial shape). Generally speaking, we tend to think of longer hair and natural colors as the best to wear, but this really just depends on you. Of course, we have to be reasonable in any choice or decision that we need to make.
The final point is that your personality should be considered when you decide on a particular hairstyle. And feel free to experiment! Nothing’s more important than being comfortable in your own skin – and hair.
