A Few Tips on Your Perfect Hair Design (Style)
Are you looking for the perfect hair design (or hairstyle)? Well, if you’re like most people, when you last tried to copy the hair design that was “in,” the results were less than stellar. Why was that?
The real reason is this: a great hairstyle is all about bringing out your best features and hiding the worst ones. Let’s face it: we all have some flaws, and our hair is the perfect gift that nature gave us to “camouflage” the not so attractive ones. And just because a hair design is “hot” right now, it doesn’t mean it’s the right one for you. So, how do we, at Revolutions Styling Salon, tell which style is the best one for you?
The first thing we do is identify the actual “shape” of your face. Is it oval, round, square, long and narrow, pear-shaped, or heart-shaped? Everyone’s face has a distinct shape. The best way to figure out your own face shape is to simply take a headband and pull all your hair away from your face, then look closely into a mirror. Is your face oval? Is it round? You should easily be able to tell.
Now, if you’re looking at a specific type of style that is “hot,” notice the face shape of the person wearing the style. Is it the same as yours? If it isn’t, it may not look as good on you as you might have originally thought. But the good news is there are plenty of hairstyles that are “hot” that can work with your face shape. At Revolutions, we can use our expertise – and your opinion – to narrow the search.
However, let’s say you already have a great hairstyle that complements your face, but you feel it’s “tired,” or old news. One way of transforming a “tired hairstyle” into a fresh-looking new style is to add some strategic lowlights or highlights. Brighten up the hair and you may be shocked at how “new” it will look.

Finding the perfect wedding dress is one thing…
What about finding the perfect wedding hairstyle?
First, you need to think about what kind of style you want – are you going to wear your hair down or in an up-do? Always consider the shape of your face when deciding on a new or special style. Be sure to find a design that suits your face shape type.
Also, decide whether or not you would be okay with pulling all of the hair away from your face. Many brides pull all of their hair back on their special days, but just as many leave some wispy strands loose to soften the effect of the hairstyle on the face.
Honestly, the possibilities for wedding hairstyles are pretty limitless: you could try some soft and romantic curls, or a variation on a bun or braids (like pleats, twists, and plaits) – or, if you’re feeling adventurous and more contemporary, even twisting or spiking might be the right wedding hairstyle for you. Try to find something that reflects your personality. After all, you know what you like better than anyone else does!
Don’t forget to consider how the hair will look with a tiara or other wedding hairband, or how it will (or will not) be complemented by a veil. If you plan on wearing a floor-length veil, you’d best consider using a lot of hairspray, gel, or mousse – it’s going to need to be tough.
There are literally thousands of wedding hairstyle pictures to be found online, so try searching Google – or if you would like some professional consultation on the matter, feel free to set up an appointment with Revolutions Styling Salon today!
