New Year, New Hairstyle: How to Choose Your New Style for 2014

For many of us, our new year’s resolutions may include getting fit and looking great in 2014. Another great way to shake up your look and feel fabulous in is to change your look in the New Year – a change in hairstyle can knock 10 years off your appearance and leave you feeling like a new woman in the New Year! 

If you’re thinking of revamping your look, take a look at these simple steps to help you avoid any bad hair decisions:

Take a trip down memory lane

A great way to decide your next look is to take a look at old photographs at your past hair styles. If you have been experimental in the past with your hair, look at the style and colours which suited you best and explore ways you can modernise these looks. 

Test it out 

Cutting your hair or changing colour? Test it out first with a wig or perhaps try hair extensions to test the look. This is a great way to see if you will suit a new style, colour or cut – and get a feel for the new style before making any permanent decisions in the hairdressers. 

Celebrity Inspirations

Look at your favourite celebrities for hair inspiration – but remember to choose celebrities around your age and of a similar skin tone. Remember to also think about maintenance, a short bob may look great on Charlize Theron, but could you maintain this look without the help of an on hand styling team? 

Test your look online 

there are a wide range of websites that allow you to upload your photo and test a wide range of colours and styles. This is a great way to see how you look, and also gives you the opportunity to compare numerous looks to see which the best style is for you. 

Get professional advice

the expert always knows best! Why not book in a consultation with an expert stylist at your local salon to discuss re-styling your hair. Expert hair stylists see a range of styles, cuts and hair colours each day, and would be able to thoroughly advise you on the best look for you.

  1. If I'm ever feeling in a rut I tend to go straight to my hair. I think I've had every color from bright red to deep black and for good measure I threw a bleach blonde look in once. I absolutely should have followed this advice ;) Great post!
