Know Your Face Shape
Need I say that the best hairstyles for round shape differ from the best hairstyles for heart shape faces? This is scary, but I remember a time when the connection between hairstyle and face shape was not something openly acknowledged. It wasn't taught in beauty school. This means your hairdresser had an eye for good balance, or not! Still, not all hairdressers 'get it' or have the artistic eye to know what haircuts are most flattering for your face shape. For that reason, it's good to learn for you what works and what doesn't work with your face shape. Knowledge is power!
Know Your Hair Type and Texture
This is just as important as the subject of knowing your face shape. Your hair type and texture will match up specifically well with certain hairstyles. When a good match is made, your hair will look great while being easy to style. When your hair type is wrong for any style and you try to wear it anyways . . . you'll be fighting it daily and damaging it in your attempt to beat it into submission!
You can't be expected to know the best hairstyles your hair type and texture will work with, but a good hairdresser will know and is of key importance here. In its natural state do you have straight hair, curly hair, wavy hair or kinky hair? Is your hair thin, medium or thick? Is your hair fine or coarse in texture? Pay attention and over time you will learn what type of hairstyles work best for you.
Know Your Lifestyle Issues
Once you have established your face shape, hair type and texture, the next concern should be to know how your lifestyle issues should work with what hairstyle you chose.
Our lifestyle issues change over time, but in the current moment they have a huge importance on what hairstyle will best fit your image and day-to-day living.
- Do you work out or participate in sports?
- Are you fashion conscious? Business-oriented? Work at home?
- Do you have small children?
- Is your life pace relaxed or very active?

- What hairstyling tools are you willing to you use?
