You’ve probably heard of Brazilian waxes. But have you heard about a Brazilian blowout? A professional Brazilian blowout will leave your hair shiny, frizz-free, and hydrated and you’ll feel ready for your model shot! Trying something new at your local beauty salons can be a fun and adventurous experience, whether you opt for a professional Brazilian blowout, hair coloring, hair extensions, or a new kind of haircut. Of course, you want to make sure that you have a stylist you can trust, who will give you honest feedback about what will or will not work for you and who will do a quality job. Don’t rejoin the ranks of the majority of women who have regretted at least one of their hairstyle (that’s around 75% of us!). Almost 60% of women said they would ask their hairdresser’s advice before making a big change, which is a good rule to follow!
What are the Benefits of Trying Something New?
According to research, the average female will have her hair layered, shortened, or colored around twice a year between the ages of 13 and 65. Opting for the same thing 104 times might get old pretty quickly! Given that most women try at least three different colors over the years, it seems like most people can agree with that fact.
Trying something new can be exciting and give you a self-confidence boost. Just under 45% of women changed the way their hair looked because they were bored, while a quarter changed their hair style as a way of reinventing themselves. Just under 40% wanted a new style to get a confidence boost and almost 70% of women say they feel prettier after getting a hair cut.
It’s easy to feel stagnant and a new hair style can help you feel like you’re breaking out of the every day slog. Over 60% of women said they did something different with their hair style because they simply wanted a change.
Additionally, a new cut or color can help commemorate a milestone, such as a birthday, a child, or a breakup or divorce. It’s a chance to turn over a new leaf and start fresh.
How Do I Find a Hair Stylist I Can Trust?
Like any relationship, it’s going to boil down to trust. You need to find a hair stylist whom you feel comfortable with and who delivers great cuts and styles time and time again. If you’re looking for a new hair stylist, check out the salon’s reputation and the portfolios of the individual stylists there. Are there reviews available? See if the positive ones outweigh the negatives. Is the salon constantly booked or is it difficult to get an appointment when you need one? It may mean that the salon is incredibly reputable, but could be frustrating in the long run, when you really need an appointment.
If you’re a little leery of going in cold, see if a family member or friend has gotten their hair cut or styled there and ask their opinion. A personal recommendation can be a powerful thing. And, your former hair stylist — if you left on good terms — may be able to recommend a colleague.
And of course, inevitably, you’re going to have to test out the stylist yourself and see if you’re satisfied with the end result.
Pamper Yourself and Try Something New!
Visiting a beauty salon for other reasons than getting a trim can be fun too! For example, a professional Brazilian blowout or deep conditioning can be a fun treat or reward for yourself. On days that you feel like you need a little extra TLC, stopping in at your beauty salon can be a refreshing break or end to your day. Or, if you’re about to head somewhere for a special occasion and need glossy, perfectly blown out hair, a professional Brazilian blowout will make you the star of the event.
Try something different next time you head to the salon! You may walk out with more pep in your step and feel like you’re on top of the world.
