Do you love the way your hair looks after a trip to the hair salon but have trouble recreating the style when you get home? You might be making some common hairstyling mistakes that harm your hair and ruin your style. Discover some of the most common hairstyling mistakes and how to avoid them:
Sticking With One Style for Too Long
There is a difference between having a signature look and looking like you are stuck in the past. Hairstyle trends come and go and styles that look good now may not look good when you get older. If you get the same haircut every time you visit the salon, ask for something new during your next appointment. Your hair stylist can inspect your hair texture and face shape to determine what cuts and trends will be most flattering to you.
Misusing Styling Products
Hair stylists may have a large selection of styling products—but they do not use them all at the same time! Different products are designed for different hair types and styles. Avoid using the wrong products by asking your stylist for product suggestions during your next appointment. Apply products when your hair is still damp as this makes it easier to distribute the product evenly throughout your hair. Another common mistake is using too much product, which can weigh hair down and make it look lifeless or oily. Use very small amounts of product—you can always add more if you need it.
Spending Too Much Time Between Haircuts
When was the last time you visited the hair salon? Between regular growth and outside influences, hair tends to lose its shape and shine about two months after getting cut. If you go months without a haircut, your hair may start to suffer. You may notice that your hair feels weighed down and is harder to style than it was after your cut. Visiting the salon regularly helps you maintain the healthiest and best-looking hair possible!
