IS IT TIME FOR A CHANGE?

HERE IS EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE CUTTING YOUR HAIR

CHANGE IS GOOD!

It’s time to embrace change, it can be as good as a holiday! And if you have long hair, chopping it off to a stylish and more managablet short style will feel like a trip around the world! The refreshing and rejuvenating feel of giving the chop to long tresses is unlike any other, and it also does wonders for your hair health!

 

While you feel liberated and free with your short new do, chopping off dead and hanging hair means you are saying bye bye to those icky damaged, broken and split ends that have been lingering and making your hair look drab. Whether its a spur of the moment idea, or if you have been toying with the idea of chopping off your mane for a while now, here is everything you need to know before cutting your hair.

Celebrity Lob Haircut

THE TRANSITION

For the long-haired ladies among us, a dramatically different short haircut can be terrifying, which is why it makes sense to approach cutting by first finding a middle ground. If you want to ease into a shorter style, rather than chopping off a foot of hair in one go, opt for a few inches at a time. Chopping off long hair is a dramatic change, so if you have just had the thought pop in your head, perhaps sleep on it, wait until tomorrow and if you are still contemplating short locks than book into one of our Brisbane salons for a free consultation so we can get the style right! It’s also a wonderful idea to have inspiration images, we love seeing screenshots of your favourite celeb looks so we can nail the perfect haircut for you.

STYLES

THE LOB:

Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably have heard of the term “Lob”. A “Lob” is a long bob cut just above the shoulders, at shoulder level or just below, it’s the perfect style for those deliberating between keeping hair long or opting for a shorter style. The Lob can be cut to flatter all face shapes and is super low-maintenance and versatile.

THE BOB:

Bobs are a little shorter than lobs, above the shoulders but underneath the ears and are youthful and effortlessly chic! Bobs are ideal for those who lack some serious body in their hair. If your long hair has been hanging around with no style than this dramatic chop with some simple styling technique and products will have your from drab to fab in no time!

THE PIXIE:

Pixies are so incredibly on trend while remaining classic and easy to maintain and style. A Pixie cut can seem like a terrifying style to try but we guarantee they are suitable to every face shape and features. If you are done with spending hours styling your hair throughout the week and completely over your limp and boring hair, then a Pixie is the way to go!

Face Framing Highlights

GO ALL OUT!

Hey! If you are taking the plunge by cutting off your long tresses, than why not add some highlights while your at it! Face-framing highlights or “Money Pieces” look amazing with lob and choppy styles this season. These lighter highlights of colour around the face make you look more youthful and creates a more slender look around the face.

 

Dark brown hair can have caramel or a lighter golden blonde around the face and those with naturally lighter hair look amazing with creamy or icy facial highlights. For those wanting natural looking facial highlights, opt for a colour that is close to the original colour, a few shades lighter will turn out perfect.

THE UPKEEP

Everyone’s hair grows at different rates however the general rule of thumb is that if you want to maintain your style, book in for a trim every 6-8 weeks. Say goodbye to dead ends and hello to fresh layers and amped up shine. A new cut keeps hair healthy whether you hair type is fine, thick or curly. To keep hair looking and feeling healthy and shiny throughout salon visits we recommend using quality products including Shampoo and Conditioner and a Dry Shampoo for those in between days. A weekly treatment is also a great idea to add moisture and prevent ends from splitting prematurely.
