Your New Haircut -- Day 2
The Hair Hangover
You've just gotten a stunning new haircut and you feel great. Every time you pass a mirror you steal a glance to admire your new 'do. The next morning, you roll out of bed and make your way to the mirror. To your amazement, you find an unsightly reflection returning your glare. After showering, you wonder how to get from a wet mop of hair to that beautiful style you got at the salon yesterday. As you attempt to recreate it, your biggest fears are realized...it's the dreaded morning after.
Want to avoid what I call a "hair hangover"? Follow these tips:
Don't overindulge: Before your haircut, take a moment to speak to your hairstylist about the level of maintenance your new 'do will require. Ask your stylist to explain what he's doing as he styles your hair so you can learn how to take care of your haircut step by step.
Stay sober: Don't be intoxicated by the environment. Though many salons will dazzle you with their stunning decor, stay on your toes and take note of how your stylist does your hair and what products he or she uses.
Don't be intimidated: Tell your stylist what you want. Make sure he or she listens carefully to your wishes and fully answers your questions. You know your hair and what you want better than anyone else!
Curb bad habits: I believe that each style has its own recipe. Once you've had your hair cut, don't make the mistake of styling your new haircut the old way. Drop those old habits and pick up the nuances of your new 'do.
