Branca Salons hair

A bad hair day can ruin your mood for the rest of the day, so it would be great to start things off right with the perfect haircut and style every day. Unfortunately, getting the perfect hairstyle isn’t as easy as simply picking a style you like and hoping it looks great on you. The hard part is finding something that will complement your individual look and personality. Although the skilled hairstylists at the St. Louis hair salon, Studio Branca, can help you achieve just the look you want, it’s best to have an idea of what you want beforehand. In order to get an idea of the look that will suit you best, here are some things you should consider:

Get a Cut that Flatters Your Face

Although that cute pixie cut may look adorable on your friend, and your co-worker may look fantastic with shoulder length hair and wispy bangs, don’t go heading to the salon just yet. It’s important to know that the shape of your face can really make or break your hair cut.

Those with a heart shaped face, for example, look best with soft, long layers and side swept bangs, while those with a more angular face can really rock long choppy bobs and short edgy cuts. If your face is more round, avoid volume around the face and go for shoulder length, gradual layers with wispy or tapered ends. On the other hand, those with long or oval shaped faces look better with more width and volume, so go for wavy mid-length cuts and brow-skimming bangs.

Work with What you Have

Another thing to remember before you go off and chop your locks is that the type of hair you have can also affect the outcome of your haircut or style. When it comes to hair density, those with thin hair can add volume to their tresses with short blunt cuts and a volumizing product like L’Oréal’s Volumetry Anti-Gravity Volumizing Root Lift Spray. A layered cut that takes away some of the bulk will do wonders for thick hair, while a smoothing product, like Aveda’s Brilliant Emollient Finishing Gloss can smooth down your ends and give your hair some extra shine.

Hair texture is also a very important factor to consider when it comes to your perfect hairstyle. Luckily, the Branca Salons can deliver the most advanced texture services available on the market, so book a consultation today to receive texture personalized recommendations right away.

Find a Style That Suits Your Routine

Let’s face it, as much as we’d all love to look our best every moment of every day, sometimes we just don’t have the time or energy. The perfect hairstyle that’s also low maintenance would be a dream, so try and pick a style that doesn’t need much prep work. Ask the stylists at Studio Branca for a wash and go style that’s also flattering to your look. Then use a finishing product like Kérastase Paris’ Laque Dentelle for a flexible, long-lasting hold, or Touche Finale for a high-shine polish that’s touchably soft.
