When I go to the hairdressers (or rather when she comes to me- she’s mobile you see) I put my trust, and hair, in her “capable” hands. For the 30 or so minutes she takes on my hair, I have no control whatsoever over my own hair, and no control over when she takes it out.
If you’ve ever had your hair done by a trainee, you’ve probably seen the trainee in action, and felt your allure fade away in the hot summer afternoon sun. She has the trainee routine down pat. She starts at the top of your head, and gets to work from the bottom, gradually reducing the strength of each section as she moves up. With or without an updo, she puts in some curl, she puts in some volume, and she deals with each knot delicately, helping you to gently fold the hair back while you’re letting it dry. With some luck, even a trainee might benefit from some gentle conditioning and some shaping. The trainee will more than likely have to clean up the knots, and apply a glossing spray. If she’s not so good atangling knots, she’ll have to tie them to deal with the balancing act between your hair top and bottom.Which is why I am writing this article.
While your hairstylist can bound on to the next station, and offer her services, she cannot work around your schedule. Your schedule is your rigid limit. It covers how long you have to spend in the chair, and how much time you have to spend styling your hair each day. It’s yours.
Even though you may love your new hairstyle, your hairstylist can not work around your commitment to your hair. It’s either you’ve got the time or you don’t. It’s meant to be a flexible service, and that’s the fun part. If you stick with your appointments when you make them, you may find yourself getting to know your hairstylist and trying out a different look every now and then. Then you can bounce from one style to the next, always keeping your hair exactly where you want it.
Getting a great hairstyle is like buying a comfortable pair of shoes. You love the way they feel and look, but if you’re in a bind, you can’t wear them for ten years. Even a really chic and expensive hairstyle will look boring in a jiffy.
If you find yourself in a bind and can’t think of a hairstyle to keep your hair out of the mud, try a pin-up. First, you’ll need some plastic hair tie holders to hold your hair up. These tied up hair pins are very essential, as your hair will fall into lines. Trim those hair tie holders, and you’re ready to go. Just make sure to tie your hair up all the way around, and turn the ends in at the back. motivations.
For some reason, when I wake up with a new hairstyle, I get this sudden urge to cut it. Even the tiniest amount of length is hard to coax out. I have to resist the urge, because I know how easy it is to cut off half an inch. It’s a hassle, to say the least. I fall into the same trap every time: half an inch.
Once you figure out how much you want to cut, work it into your schedule. If you don’t have hours to spend to style your hair, you might consider visiting a stylish friend for the day. She can cut it, or you can do it yourself.
When you’re ready to get your hair cut, apply the gel first. Get a few tiny tablespoons, and rub them on your hands. When you have finished applying the gel, you are ready to start cutting. Hold the scissors so that they are slightly bent, so that they are easier to cut your hair. Trim your hair, in several inches, until it’s even with your forehead.
On the other hand, if you’re feeling the need to cut your hair before a meeting with someone important, you can do it in-between. Work in small sections, as it will be much easier to work in.
Never start any cutting process until your hair is exactly how you want it. If you don’t have time to finish styling, you can decide to cut your hair after you’re in the shower. But if you don’t like it, it will stick out through the plastic shower cap. You’ll have to cut it before you leave the shower, so it’s nice and easy to look at, without ripping it off.
There are different shades of gel for different types of hair. If your hair is colored or permed, you’ll need to get a gel that is specially made for that hair.
