You may think your hair looks absolutely fab while strutting down the street without a care in the world, however to the trained eye (ie a professional hairstylist) they often notice some seriously bad mistakes. Here, we give you insight into 5 mistakes hairstylists always notice and how to fix them.
1) Choosing the wrong colour for your skintone
Choosing the correct hair color makes such a huge difference in how you look, which is why figuring out the best hair color for your skin tone is so vital. It’s all about knowing what are the most flattering hues for you and most times, only a professional hairstylist can help you out on this one.
2) Cutting your fringe too deeply into your hairline
We all know how sexy a full fringe can look on certain ladies but cutting your fringe too deeply into your hairline is a big no-no. Going too wide looks like you could be wearing a cap. When it comes to fixing your bangs, the only thing you can really do is wait until your fringe grows out and then makes sure you visit a professional hairstylist so that they can cut it properly!
3) Dyeing your hair too dark
Do you page through magazines and notice tons of gorgeous models that have a stunning hair colour and think you’d also be able to pull it off? The sad reality is, that the model sporting the sexy jet black hair has a certain type of skin tone which you may be far from. Always consult with your hairstylist before just demanding a colour. Our hairstylist Lee says the best rule of thumb is to not darken your hair more than two levels from your natural color to lessen this effect.
4) Using the wrong heat setting on your hot tools for your hair texture
It’s something we all get warned about- flat irons can cause serious damage to ones hair. This is especially true if you are not applying protective products before turning the heat up on your ghd or curling iron. Top this all off with bleaching or permantly dyeing your hair and you may as well chop all your locks off! They are as good as dead- literally! So our best advice is to use hot tools for special occasions only and make sure it’s on a low setting.
5) Moving around on your chair or texting while getting your cut
You may not notice it but everyone else can. Yip, we talking about those uneven ends that really are so blatantly obvious. And there’s nothing worse when you can’t even blame your hairstylist cause you know you were the one wriggling around like a worm or scrolling through the same facebook posts over and over again. The solution to this one is simple, keep a level head and make sure your legs aren’t crossed.
