Hair is something that is so personal to each individual. Everyone has their preferred way to style it. Many spend years trying to understand how to manage it; even more spend plenty of money trying to get it to achieve exactly how they envision their perfect look. It is indeed a process to learn how to welcome what you naturally have while also working to make it look the best it possibly can.
However, if you are looking to step up your hair game, read on for three must-know tips for making this your best hair year ever.
1. Embrace the hair accessories trend.
One of the exciting things about hair is that (generally) most changes are only semi-permanent, which gives you the freedom to try something new regularly. For some people, this is an exciting prospect, while for others, it is horrifying. However, there is a wide variety of ways to get out of your comfort zone, so let this be the year that you take one step forward.
The easiest way is to try out hair accessories. This season, hair accessories are a significant trend, and one that everyone can play around with if they want. In the spring and summer months, consider wearing a floral option to coordinate with the nature around you.
Alternatively, hair clips and scrunchies are all over the fashion runways and in magazines, so you are guaranteed to find ones that suit your style in the shops. If you want something that is both on-trend and sophisticated, try wearing multiple pearl-covered clips.
2. Go out of your comfort zone and try something new!
Perhaps you want to do something a little more drastic than wearing a hair-clip, in which case you should book yourself in for a spa treatment. While you should regularly be having your hair cut (snipping off the dead ends is an essential step for freshening up your head of hair), every now and then, you should indulge a little bit in a hair treatment such as a product buildup treatment, a split ends treatment, or a scalp issues treatment.
On the other hand, if you really want to switch up your look, speak with your hair stylist about having luxury hair extensions fitted or trying out a new color. This is your sign that it is time to get the hair you have always dreamt of!
3. Recognize your hair’s different needs during each season.
It should come as no surprise that the changing of the seasons brings a change in the needs of your hair. Just as you switch skincare and other beauty products throughout the year, the same needs to be done with your hair care to ensure that you are providing it with the nutrients and support that it needs.
For example, generally, the dry air of winter withers your hair, leaving it dehydrated and dull come the spring months. Additionally, the spring and summer heat can harm your hair, so it’s crucial to keep it hydrated and well-treated. To keep it healthy and looking full of life, you want to be using a shampoo and conditioner combination that moisturizes it enough so that it is soft and shiny without feeling too heavy and weighed down by product.
Consider adding an anti-frizz serum to your product lineup to combat the inevitable spring and summer frizz. Similarly, an anti-humidity spray can make a significant difference during the muggy months. All you have to do is mist the spray on to your dry hair after you have styled it, and then use it throughout the day if you need a touch-up.
If you are continually having issues with your hair, make sure that you speak with your stylist about the best haircut for curly hair.
