How To Choose A New Hair Style Or Color In 2023

When it comes to our hair, we often want to change it. Whether it’s a fresh cut to keep it looking healthy, to a complete color change. Our hair is an extension of our personality and that means it’s good to show it off in any way you see fit.

With that being said, are you looking for a new hairstyle or color for 2023? If the answer is yes, then it’s important to know what you want and to have confidence in the choice you made so that you can achieve the look you’re after. There are a number of tips to help find the ideal hairstyle or color for you particularly. Here’s how to best choose it for your hair.

Assess the current health of your hair

What is the current health of your hair? For some, they may have slightly damaged hair from bleaching in the past or using too much heat on their hair without the use of heat protectant spray. Remember, even the heat from the sun is going to fry your hair if you’re not looking after it.

Assess the look and health of your hair currently to see if a new hair color is appropriate. It might not be with the current condition or it might be the perfect time to bleach your hair. 

Alternatively, when it comes to hairstyles, you may want to opt for a cut that removes all of the dry ends or you may only need a minimal cut. Some hairstyle changes might be desired not simply to keep the hair healthy but to change the vibe of your look completely.

Consider going from dark to light

When it comes to changing your hair color, a big challenge is lightening dark hair to a blonde or light color in general. There are often multiple steps to get your hair blonde and it might not be the type of process you want to put your hair through.

However, for some, the results can be incredible so it’s worth mulling this over and perhaps going for a patch test on a strand of hair to see how it takes on your hair.

Think about the practicalities required for the hairstyle

It’s important to think about the practicalities of a hairstyle because it needs to suit your everyday habits and way of life. For some, a fringe might be a good idea to cut into the hair but in reality, if you’re used to tying up your hair and getting it out of your face, you’ll need to clip back your fringe every time.

For some, long hair is a nightmare to maintain and might not be what’s needed when they have a busy lifestyle. Alternatively, a choppy hairstyle might not be something that someone is used to and therefore struggles to style.

While it’s always good to try something new, it’s important to be aware of what works and what you’re prepared to dedicate yourself to when choosing a new hair color or style.

Use virtual reality to see yourself with different haircuts

If you’re a little apprehensive of what colour or hairstyle might be better for your appearance, then VR is taking the beauty world by storm. Being able to see makeup and hairstyles directly onto your face through a camera is the type of technology that’s readily available to those that need it.

The benefit of virtual reality is that by seeing yourself with different haircuts and colors, you can make a better-informed decision on whether it’s a good look or not. Rather this than just jumping into the deep end and trying it, hoping that it works.

Speak to your hair stylist for advice

When it comes to choosing a hairstyle or color, it’s worth speaking to your hair stylist for advice.  They are the professionals after all and will be able to give you a better understanding of what’s going to work best for your hair.

They may agree with your choice or they might suggest something a little different that will frame and suit your face better. Ultimately though, it’s your decision to make!

Invest in hair extensions for short or damaged hair

Finally, if you’re looking to add some length to your hair or perhaps your current hair is damaged and needs cutting, extensions are a must. They’ve become a lot more popular in recent years, so it’s worth exploring if you’ve never tried them.

Choosing a new hairstyle or color is important when it comes to your look so make sure you take these tips on board when making your decision this year.
