A great haircut can make you look and feel amazing, so it's important to know exactly how to get the style you want before you even walk into the salon - because let's face it, there's nothing like a bad haircut to ruin your entire day/week/month!
To help you figure out how to get the hairstyle of your dreams, we're zooming in on a few important things to bear in mind before you make the cut.
1. Hair texture is important
Getting a cut that works with your natural texture will minimize styling time and generally make taking care of your mane as easy as possible. So, if you have naturally curly hair and don't like to spend much time styling it, a sleek, straight bob might not be the best option.
2. Lifestyle is important
In a similar vein, if you don't have the time - or the inclination - to spend styling your tresses in the morning, you should avoid cuts that look best when perfectly polished. Instead, go for something that works with a more natural-looking finish à la Blake Lively (which is right on-trend this season, FYI).
3. Styling techniques are important
With the best will in the world, it can be difficult to recreate a salon-fresh look at home if you aren't too sure about how to go about it. So, before you hit the street with your new commercial-worthy mane, get your stylist to walk you through the styling technique they used to achieve it.
4. Dry shampoo is important
Though not strictly useful for actually getting a great haircut, dry shampoo will make that glorious salon feeling last longer. Simply spritz day two hair with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray, brush it through, and you're all set!
