If you’re bored with your hair’s current length and want a change, make sure you do your research before committing to a new style. Most hair disasters occur when you haven’t thought about it enough, and you choose to do something impulsive. Remember when Keri Russell from the TV show Felicity had her beautiful, waist-length curls cut off? The show’s ratings fell by 30%, and she was reminded of her impulse decision for years later on various Celebrity Oops shows.
So while you may not have a show’s ratings to worry about, you must remember that making a big change is something that could affect your life for years to come. Short hair is not for everyone – there’s face shape and lifestyle factors to think about – and you will be changing your image in the eyes of others as well. And yes, long hair can be boring, but there are countless ways to make it more interesting without going for the big chop. Having a trim, getting layers cut in, or getting highlights are all ways that you can change your look without moving into hair-disaster territory.
The major thing to remember is to not become impulsive, especially when you’re in the hairdresser’s chair. If you feel you may get impulsive it’s best to avoid to salon altogether, as we often regret in our leisure the things we do in haste. Learn to love your hair at every length, think carefully before making any big changes, and you’ll be doing all you can to avoid those unsightly hair disasters.
