How To Use Pictures Of Hair Styles To Choose The Ultimate Look For You

Here's a great way to avoid hair disasters and major bad hair days: - checking out pictures of a hair styles carefully first! OK, so this sounds somewhat mundane, but there's a clever twist you probably don't know about yet! Read on below to discover more...
Browsing through pictures of hair styles can be a great way to find the perfect look for you, but there are some things to be careful off, and also some important guidelines you can use to make the most of your time.

The most popular places to look for pictures of hairstyles are in style books and portfolios found in most salons, and also in most good fashion magazines. As well, there are some excellent online resources such as hair style blogs and photo galleries. You can quickly and easily get lots of ideas and print out ones that appeal to you so you can discuss your new style with your hair stylist. By seeing a picture of hairstyle variations, it's easier for both you and your stylist to have realistic expectations of what you want. But it's not always as easy as that....!

One of the biggest problems with using magazine or web pictures of hair styles is that the hairstyle is on someone with a completely different looking face from yourself. Very often, the pictures you see in magazines are models or celebrities, all of whom will usually have close-to-perfect facial structures! But here are some ways to carefully choose helpful pictures of hairstyles and avoid ones which could cause an instant bad hair day!

When looking through hairstyle pictures, try not to be hypnotized by the glamorous first impression and look closely at the type and texture of hair that the picture is showing. Is it fine and straight, thick and curly, carefully kept or tussles and messy. It's best to try and find pics that are closest as you can to your own style, and face shape.
There are many different face shapes, including Oval, Oblong, Square, Heart and Diamond-shaped. If the pictured model has a different shaped face from you, the look of the particular hairstyle can be totally different from what it would on you!
There are several services online you can use to quickly and easily upload your own photo and literally see what you would look like, choosing from a massive range of different hair styles, and colours... The appearance of the different styles on your face is surprisingly realistic, and you can carefully align the photo, so you can adjust the position of the hairstyle accurately. This is an excellent way to try out a particular hairstyle or range of different hairstyles and avoid disastrous "bad hair day" mistakes if the one you choose and pay for, turns out not to be right!
