What Does Your Hairstyle Say About You?

What Does Your Hairstyle Say About You?

Are You Blonde?  Brunette?  Redhead?  What Does Your Hair Colour & Style Say About You?

WHAT-YOUR-HAIR-SAYS-ABOUT-YOUDoes it matter how you wear your hair?  Do others make snap judgements about your personality based on whether you’re a redhead, blonde or brunette?  What does your hairstyle say about you?

Research shows that people still associate different hair colours  and hair styles with personality ‘types’.  Blondes are traditionally seen as flirty, redheads are feisty and fiery, while brunettes are serious and mysterious!

According to a study by sociologist Dr Rose Weitz, you can even be judged by your hairstyle.  Straight hair is worn by women who are viewed as serious, professional and straightforward and those with curls are believed to be carefree and approachable!  If you have short hair, expect to be seen as out-going, brave, independent and self-assured, while the perception for longer haired lasses is that they are sexy and fun.

The good news is that things are changing!  Huge improvements in hair styling tools, hair treatments, hair colour techniques, hair extensions and hair care and styling products mean we can change our hairstyle or colour more frequently without damage.

Today, men and women are more versatile when it comes to their hair.  We’ll wear curls one day, straighten our hair the next, add plaits or an upstyle and update the colour every few weeks or months.

So we say forget about these ridiculous stereotypes and confuse the masses by changing your hair style every day of the week!

Another reason we are happier to change our hairstyles and colour is down to social media and the internet.  We can see celebrity hairstyles and fashions instantly which means we can follow new trends with surprising speed.

In the past we all copied Kylie Minogue’s curly perm or Jennifer Aniston’s ‘Rachel cut’ but today it’s all about showing your individuality and having fun with your hairstyle.  Change it up and surprise your friends and colleagues with a new look.

When it comes to straightening your hair, hair straighteners can both straighten and curl your hair.  Indeed, well-known brands such as ghd, feature patented technology that maintain a safer-for-hair heat from root to tip, reducing hair breakage and increasing shine.
