New Hair Styles For Women
Unless you intend having your two foot mane of golden locks cropped to the scalp, changing your hairstyle to your new hairstyle should not present any major psychological problems.
New hairstyles, like fashions, like people themselves even, do not change overnight. They change gradually and sometimes imperceptibly.
You only need to look through old photograph albums – perhaps over the past six years or twelve years – to see what I mean. "Did I really have my hair like that?" you gasp. "Were skirts that length?" "I did not realise I used to look so different".
Unless you are in the fashion business and your living and breathing tomorrow’s look, you do not move with the times at a consciously frenetic pace. You up-date your image as and when it suits you.
Transitional New Hairstyles
That is why new hairstyles should be seen as transitional and it should be possible for the hairstyle you have today to be adapted to the style of tomorrow without expending too much blood, sweat and tears.
Having read this far you should now know your own hair quite well – its limitations as well as its possibilities. If you have been looking in the mirror, you will also, if you're honest, have some idea of what will or will not suit you.
Armed with all this self-knowledge you’re in a strong position to move through a series of different hairstyles with the ease of a shopper in a deserted supermarket.
There should be no problems or worries and you can make rational choices and decisions with your new hairstyles. What could be more fun than the secret knowledge that this winter's mass of auburn curls will become a sleek, glowing shoulder length bob by summer that is straight, easy to wash and dry and ideal for knotting at the back?
This is only one example of what I mean by hairstyles in transition. It is partly a question of having a positive attitude, saying to yourself, "This is what I want at the moment, but I'm working towards a different look for x, y or z month".
Trusting Your New Hairstyles
It's also partly a matter of trusting your hairdresser. If you talk to your hairdresser – perhaps every six months – about the possible changes you would like and how they fit in with the fashion scene (if fashion is important to you), then he or she will be able to cut your hair to grow into the next new hairstyle.
It really is as simple as that, which is why it saddens me that people are not more adventurous with their hair. It does not have to dominate your life. Indeed, there would be something seriously wrong with you if it did. On the other hand, we should make the most of what we've got, let hair flatter us, make us feel good and give us a lift by changing its shape or colour.
Of course, to some extent you're stuck with what you're born with, but just because you have always had straight, fine, mousy hair ("that I cannot do anything with") it doesn't mean you cannot have curls or colours or fashionable styles.
I know this from years of experience in transforming the most ordinary hair into what can only be described as "creations" for exhibitions, photographic sessions and stage shows.
So keep the idea of transition clearly in your head as you move towards your new hairstyles, and you will find that changing your style is as much fun, and just as rewarding as up-dating your wardrobe – and quite a bit cheaper too.
