How to Know it’s Time for a Haircut
Haircuts can be incredibly therapeutic. A haircut can signify both a literal and a metaphorical weight lifting off your shoulders; nothing quite like a haircut after a breakup, or when you’re feeling low and need a change. We all know the power of a hair transformation.
Sometimes though, you might not need to experience something life-changing, or sadness so great you’re left with no choice but chopping off a few inches. Sometimes, it’s just that your hair needs a good trim, or perhaps a full-blown change.
Not sure if you need a haircut or not? Read ahead
If you’re not quite sure whether you have a trim or cut due, drop by our hair salon in Concord, NH, for a consultation with our hairdressers.
However, there are some signs to watch out for when you’re trying to decide if it’s time for a chop:
Dry and Split Ends
Straggly, rough hair that seems to be thinning out and stripped of moisture is a dead giveaway when it comes to needing a haircut. Look at the ends of your hair and see if they look rough or out of place. To check for split ends, twist the end of your hair and if you notice a feathery section, guess it’s time to go under the blade—of the scissors.
Lackluster, Limping Locks
Another major indicator calling for a trim is the lack of volume, flat roots and none of that bounce a fresh haircut has. If you feel like your scalp feels weighed down, your hair looks lifeless and dull, book an appointment for a refresher.
Shapelessness and Difficulty in Styling
Does it take longer to style your hair? Does it feel like it’s impossible to work with, and you can’t let it just be? A good haircut should look good without much effort, even if you’d prefer to straighten or curl every day. It shouldn’t be an uphill battle to look presentable day in and day out. If your hair looks like it’s just resting on your head, not really doing much, you should get a trim if nothing too drastic.
Hair Thinning Out
If your braid is tapering and your hair overall seems to be forming a scraggly V-shape without trying, it looks lighter and thinner at the bottom, chop off the ends. Thinning hair is a problem for a lot of men and women, but a haircut can drastically make it look healthier and allow fresher, healthier hair to grow out without being weighed down.
If you notice any of the above signs, or perhaps you just need a change, get in touch with us or drop by our salon and schedule an appointment with the top hairstylists in Concord!
