Fabulous Friday!

“A woman who changes her hair is about to change her life.”  — Coco Chanel

Most of you can identify with the fact that a fabulous haircut changes your attitude.  When your hair looks great, you feel like you can take on the world.  A bad haircut, however, can have the opposite reaction.  Here are some tips on how to make sure you get a haircut that you’ll love.

Long hair:  Hair thins as you age, which is why long hair typically doesn’t look good on older women.  You can still have longer hair as an older woman, as long as you create lots of layers.  The layers will add fullness to your hair.  Really long, stringy hair is never attractive on anyone.

Short hair: Short hair looks better on women with heart, square or oval-shaped faces.  Short haircuts can make someone with a round face look too round.  If you want to try short hair for the first time, try a demi-bob.  It’s usually a flattering cut on everyone.

Shoulder length hair: Shoulder length hair is usually flattering on everyone, no matter what your face shape.

Remember, a haircut usually takes three months to lose its shape, so don’t feel the need to get a cut every six weeks.  Also, don’t wash your hair too often.  It causes a nasty cycle of your hair spitting out extra oil to make up for the fact that you’re stripping all the natural oils out.   Then, you wash your hair more because it seems like it’s more oily.  Back in the 1950’s, the majority of women washed and styled their hair once a week.  At the turn of the century, women only washed and styled their hair once a month!

Do you have any hair secrets to share with everyone?  Let me know!
