Haircut Headache Prevention
Your Hair Hangover Remedy Consultation

the haircut you thought you loved, the next day you wash your
hair and can't do a thing with it. Your blood pressure rises and
you look for the hair salon's phone number, the hair dresser's
cell number, and with his email address in panic!!
Write it down. Take
a note pad with you and ask the stylist to explain what he's
doing as he styles your hair. Write it down. Also, try to mimic
what he does to your hair. Have him show you how to hold the
brush in the right direction in your own hand. Knowing and
the angles he is using is really important. Consider that the
way you must hold the brush yourself will be different from the
way a stylist holds a brush to style someone else. right: Actress! LOL

to your original plan. After
the hairdresser hears what you're thinking and says, "NO, THAT'S
ALL WRONG"—chances are, he is. His hair ego is speaking. He
wants to use you as a walking advertisement for referrals. Tell
your stylist what you want and ask him how to help you achieve
it. Make sure he or she listens carefully to your wishes and
fully answers your questions. You know your hair and what you
want better than anyone else does!

Bad bangs. The
bangs are too short. After you blowdry them with a medium brush,
take a fine-toothed comb and comb your bangs down while you blow
them with a hair dryer on high heat. Then, smoothen them out
with a tiny bit of pomade. Separate the bangs as you rake
through the hair with a blow-dryer. This will make them seem
longer and not pop up.
lot of times, hairdressers will recommend a shampoo that has
color in it to keep your hair from fading. Wrong. Most of the
time, people use these colored shampoos this end up with such
terribly dry hair! In particular, the violet and purple-based
shampoos, which are supposedly made to knock out gold in the
hair to keep it blonder, just create damaged and dried blonde
hair that breaks off. Instead, I recommend using a shampoo for
colored hair with no color in it (it should be whitish), and mix
it with conditioner fifty-fifty to make it mild. Follow with a
conditioner rinse only.
Layered locks. Before
you layer your hair, consider its texture. For example, if you
have wavy, frizzy hair, you need to calm it down with less
layers—definitely, no razor cuts, thinning shears, or weaving
shears. Curly hair can be cut in small chunks or chops because
curly hair likes to clump together. Frizzy hair should have a
well precisioned, graduated cut.
Hair shock. Chopping
all your hair off because you are depressed or at the insistence
of the hairdresser is not a good idea. If you want a short-hair
feeling, take it off slowly. Add a long bang in front, or layers
to give you a short-hair look.
If your original intention was a bit of shaping and not to cut a
lot of length off, stick to it. If the hairdresser absolutely
insists that you should cut it off, don't keep insisting. Just
leave; he sounds like trouble. The perfect trick to escape
I hope these suggestions are helpful with your new look! For
