5 Steps for Picking the Right Women's Haircut, Penfield, New York

A new hairstyle can completely transform your look. Because they complement your appearance, you may wonder what haircut to choose when you’re planning a makeover. There are many ways you can go about finding a cut that suits you. To help you find a style you’ll love, here are some tips for discovering the most flattering cut for your features.

What to Consider When Choosing a New Haircut

1. Your Face Shape

Figuring out your face shape will help you narrow down your options. Different haircuts suit some shapes better than others, so try to stick with styles and lengths that frame your face well. For instance, those with long faces can rock shorter cuts that create balance, while long hair or short styles with volume on top will flatter rounder faces.

2. Universally Flattering Cuts

There are other cuts that complement all types of faces. If you are nervous about making a dramatic change or unsure of what looks good on you, shoulder-length haircuts are safe bets. No matter your face shape, age, or style, this length will highlight your best features.

3. Required Maintenancehaircut

A factor that many neglect to consider when picking a style is upkeep. Styled cuts like bangs need to be trimmed every few weeks to maintain proper length, so make sure you have the time and commitment to return to the salon for maintenance. To make sure you’re willing to do what it takes to maintain your hairdo, ask your stylist about the required upkeep of any cut you’re considering. 

4. Your Hair Texture

The texture of your locks will ultimately affect the shape your hairstyle takes. Hair can be fine, medium, or thick, as well as straight, wavy, curly, or kinky. Thin, straight hair benefits from short cuts and layers that create the illusion of more volume. If your hair is coarse and curly, lean towards a longer haircut that will conceal frizz.

5. Celeb Inspirations

Clueless about your options? Look through fashion and celebrity websites or magazines for inspiration. Save pictures of your favorite looks to show to your stylist at the salon, and they can tailor the cut to suit your hair texture and face shape. However, don’t feel like you need to copy what’s popular—go with what catches your eye.
