Adjusting to a New Hairstyle

Getting a new hairstyle can be quite exciting, but if you’ve gotten used to your regular style, it can be difficult to adjust to the new look. Bob and Paige the Toronto hair salons recommend the following tips to help adjust to your fabulous new hairstyle:

Sleep On It

You may be in shock when you first see your new hairstyle. Wait at least a week to let the shock wear off. You will eventually settle into the haircut and do a second take when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror – in a good way. Don’t make any judgments right away. You’ll never know whether you dislike the hairstyle or are just surprised by it until you give yourself time to adjust.

Ask You Friends

Often, you may feel self-conscious about your new hairstyle and assume everyone is looking at your askance. Leave it to your trusted friends to tell you the truth. If it’s a rough hairstyle, they’ll let you know in no uncertain times. However, it’s far more likely that they adore the new hairstyle and think it suits you perfectly. So wait until you hear the opinions of your most straight-talking friends and you might feel much more comfortable with the hot new look.

Re-Visit the Salon

If you still feel a bit uncertain about your new hairstyle, don’t hesitate to return to the salon. Don’t be afraid to voice your opinion and express what makes you uncomfortable about the new look. All stylists at the best Toronto hair salons would happily work with you to find a solution. Your stylist will let their creativity fly to either re-cut the hair or offer amazing styling options to keep you looking incredible.

Stimulate Growth

If you find your hair too short for your comfort, you can try to stimulate growth. Scalp-stimulating shampoo, for example, helps to produce hair growth. You can also stimulate hair growth by gently massaging your scalp daily or rubbing liquid from vitamin E capsules into your hair. Vitamin E helps to keep your follicles healthy.

Embrace the Look

Sometimes, it helps to change your perspective. Rather than pining for your old look, adopt a positive mindset and embrace the new style. Consider beautiful celebrities who confidently rock the same look, or take pride in the fact that you’re helping to be a trendsetter. You’ll start to love your new look sooner than you’d ever imagine.

Never Forget…

Everything is reversible. If you’re not satisfied with a short look, your hair will soon grow back. If you don’t like the colour, you can easily re-dye it. Once you learn to get over the fear of having a new hairstyle, you’ll start to embrace the adventure of trying new things. Once you do, a world of stunning hairstyles awaits you.

Follow these recommendations offered by Toronto hair salons, and you can happily adjust to your chic new hairstyle in no time.
