7 Tips for the greatest fall haircut ever & how to keep it great

7 Tips for the greatest fall haircut ever & how to keep it great

The trees change colors, and you feel the need for your own, personal change. After all, you’re going to be putting away your tank tops and shorts to slide into some sweaters and boots pretty soon. 

So why not? Go for the big change and express this season’s best you yet. Just remember that with some big changes, some maintenance changes are needed, too.

New haircut and style: Here’s what you need to know

You’re ready, you’ve made the appointment, it’s time to breathe some life into your drab and tired hairstyle. Follow these tips to get your greatest cut ever and to keep it looking fab until you’re ready to change it again.

1. Talk to the stylist

Explain to them why you want the change. No matter what the reason, giving them an understanding of who you are and what you want from your hair will help them determine a style that’s suited to you.

2. Be open-minded

Definitely find some hairstyles you like, but don’t have your heart set on looking like the people in the pictures. 

In the first place, those people usually don’t look like the pictures. There are a lot of tricks and techniques that are done to create the best pictures, and then there’s photoshop. 

Secondly, the cut you like might not be right for your face and your hair type. If you love a big, full bob but have thin, lifeless hair, it’s never going to work. Let the stylist come up with something similar that is better suited to your face and hair and even your lifestyle.

3. Be realistic

How much time do you spend doing your hair each day and how much time are you willing to spend. Explain this to your stylist so they can craft a style that fits your time budget. Or you need to adjust your schedule to suit your hairstyle.

4. What products do you need?

Your favorite sea salt spray might not hold the curls that your new do require, and you need to know that before you leave the salon. That said, you don’t have to buy your products at the salon. There are fantastic high-quality hair care products online and in stores that cost less than salon brands and work just as well if not better. 

Hair La Vie products help strengthen hair, improve manageability, and stimulate growth. We design formulas that help nurture your hair and body from the inside out. Our Clinical Formula Hair Vitamins, for instance, contains a proprietary blend of 20 natural ingredients that restore damaged follicles and promote thicker, fuller-looking hair. 

5. Watch and ask

Always have the stylist style your new hairdo. They had a vision in mind when they started cutting, and you need to see it through to the finish to make sure you understand what it’s supposed to look like. This is also your time for a one-on-one tutorial in doing your own hair. There’s a lot of wisdom to be found in a salon.

6. Future appointments

Whether it’s getting a color touch up or regular trims, make sure you know how long you should wait between appointments. Short haircuts require more frequent cuts to keep them looking fresh and to hold their shape. Expect more visits and a bigger hair care budget. 

7. Are there options?

A dramatic cut can feel like an exciting opportunity to reinvent yourself. And then one day you suddenly miss the old you. Now you’ve got more than a foot of hair missing, and waiting is all you can do until it grows back. 

Or is it? Ask if there are styling options for your new haircut. You can even create a grow-out plan that takes you from one style to another one as your hair grows. There’s no reason to hate your hair.

Final thoughts

Why not try a new hairstyle? Do you have any really good reasons, or are you holding off just because you’re used to the way you look? 

Change is good, and it can be really exciting. It can also be a catalyst for other changes in your life. If you’re ready for the next chapter of your life, start it by creating an aesthetic new you.

If you do decide to get a dramatic haircut, make sure you and the stylist are on the same page. You want to be certain that they know what you want and how long you want to spend working on it each day. Listen to their advice very carefully, and watch what they do so you can recreate that salon look.

If you find that you hate your haircut, or you’re ready to let go of it after the season is over, come up with a game plan that lets you love your hair in every grow-out stage, even the most awkward ones can be fixed.
