It can be so easy to get stuck in a rut, pulling your hair up into a quick twist or a ponytail to keep it out of your way when you’re running out the door. However, nearly everyone feels better with freshly cut and styled hair. Here’s five ways to know when you’re ready to take the plunge and visit Chroma Salon to make a significant change to your ‘do.
It’s Been a While
If the last time you saw your stylist was early spring and there’s currently snow on the ground here in Toronto, it’s a pretty good bet that you at least need a trim. Why not take the opportunity to check out all the cute short styles and pick something new?
Time to Turn Heads
You haven’t heard a compliment on your style in a really, really long time. This might signify that it is time to make a drastic change. Out with the old, in with the new! If even the slightest change like a new barrette causes exclamations around the office, it is probably past time to make a change.
Take a Risk
If everything else in your life is stable, then maybe you would be more comfortable making a change with your hair. Even just a little change can shake up your thinking, even though change can be a little uncomfortable. Making a cut and seeing that it worked out well you might gain confidence in other parts of your life.
You Want to Switch it Up
You looked back at your Facebook page and you realize that you can keep scrolling and scrolling, and all of your pictures still look exactly the same. This probably isn’t a good thing–making a change every once in a while keeps your mind agile.
You’ve Wanted This for a Long Time
You’ve been thinking about cutting your hair short for more than a month or two. If you had a momentary fleeting thought that you want to chop your hair, it probably is a good idea to wait just a minute and take a breath before you take the plunge. However, if you keep coming back to the idea of going short for several months, then you are probably ready to call your stylist.
Even if you are not sure you’re quite ready for a short haircut, it can be a lot of fun to spend time looking at cute hairstyles. Consider your stylist a partner. Who better to help you discover what type of style would look good on you than the person who knows your hair best? Give your stylist a call to schedule your next appointment.
