Hairstyling/best hairstyle/haircut


Hello!  I currently have a shoulder-length layered bob (long bangs), but am looking to make a change.  People have told me I look best with my hair up (in a ponytail or bun) because it accentuates my face features.  I do feel that when my hair is down, it hides my features and isn't my best look.  What haircut/hairstyle do you think will look best for me?

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi ?Nelly,

Finding a great cut is based on specific information. Cutting is all  geometry. The style that works best will show off your good points and add balance where you might need it. Bone structure, face shape, etc come into play here. Lifestyle and personality is also key to finding something perfect.
Texture, density and growth patterns also affect what will work or not.

All that is to say, without being able to see you, I have no idea. If your hair looks better up, a short cut might be great but from the info you gave me so far, that's the best I can do.  Post this message to private and send me a pic with your hair down and another with it all, including bangs off your face and I can make some suggestions.

I can answer questions on all types of hairstyling, cutting, designing, coloring, corrective color, perming techniques,product knowledge, and in general, anything that has anything to do with hair. PLEASE NOTE: I am a professional designer and trainer. I do hair and teach advanced classes to licensed designers. I do not, under any circumstances, recommend doing chemical services including but not limited to relaxers, perms, color, highlights, or any other chemical service at home. I will not tell you how to use professional products nor will I tell you how to do your color at home. What I CAN do is arm you with current and accurate information and help you to be able to better communicate with your stylist/designer. I can also help you with what you need to do at home to maintain, protect, and treat your hair.
