8 Tips for Picking a Great Hairstyle

1. Look at your hairline. If you have always had long hair, short hairstyles are going to expose your hairline more than it has been exposed in the past. Make sure that you like the way that it looks before cutting away that hair.

2. Examine different pictures. For almost every hairstyle, you can find a model already sporting it. This should not be the last step, since it could look different on you, but it is a great first step and can help you know what you want.

3. Look at celebrities. Often, it is easier to find cute hairstyles on celebrities than models because you can find candid pictures of these people out and about, rather than just studio pictures, so you see what it looks like in real life.

4. Talk to your hairstylist. She or he can give you some pointers based on experience. She or he may have seen people looking for similar short hairstyles in the past.

5. Ask your friends. Find a friend who will give you honest feedback and ask what she or he would think. A friend can often give you an objective viewpoint that it is very hard to find yourself.

6. Consider all of your options. Ideally, you want to pick out three to five new styles that you are interested in, and then you can work your way down. Do not limit yourself too much at the beginning.

7. Ask if other people have tried similar cuts. Do you have a friend who always manages to pull off the newest cute hairstyles? He or she has experience just like your stylist, though from the other side of the equation.

8. Pick a style that can be covered up. Just in case you make a mistake and then hate the new hairstyle, choose one that can easily be fixed with a quick trim.
