Your hairstyle plays a big role in the way that people perceive you.  If you aren’t happy with yours, then it’s time that you changed it. After all, what’s the point in walking around with a hairstyle that you aren’t happy with? Changing your hairstyle is as simple as going down to the salon and asking for a re-style.

However, determining whether you are happy or unhappy with your hairstyle isn’t as straightforward as it sounds. Also, there are things you have to take into consideration, like your job, the way you dress, and your reputation. This post will cover all of this and more, so you can decide if you need to change the style or not.

Popular Styles

At the moment, perms are very popular. It is common to find both young men and women wearing them.  However, as with all fashions and trends, in no time at all, perms will again be a thing of the past and people will be moving onto something new. If you have got a perm, then you might be wondering how you can start removing it and texturizing your hair again. Unfortunately, you can’t just unperm your hair like that, but you can make yours less pronounced. Perms naturally go over time, anyway. It is generally a good idea to avoid popular styles, because they go just as quickly as they come, and they can be a nightmare to get rid of (as is the case with perms).

Social Circle

One thing to think about when you are planning on changing your hairstyle is your social circle. In other words, what will your friends think? Usually, you shouldn’t factor other people’s opinions into the way that you look or dress, but if you are part of a specific social set, changing your hairstyle to something that’s completely different could actually alienate you, and ruin your group image. If your friends are all goths, for example, and you get your hair cut short into a parting, you will stand out. That said, if you want to change your hair don’t let anyone stop you, but be prepared to be judged by friends if it goes against your group’s image.

Personal Style

What is your personal style? Everybody has their own style. Unfortunately, very few people actually ever learn what their style is. Your personal style should reflect your interests. If you know what yours is, then it should be obvious what you should do with your hair. The best way to determine your style is to go to different shops, try on different clothes, and even visit a hair salon. A hairstylist may be able to tell you what would look good on you.

Work Commitments

If you have an office job, then you won’t be able to get a mohawk. Employers have certain expectations. You aren’t allowed to turn up to an office job with a mohawk, because it makes the company look very unprofessional. If clients come to the office and see you sitting there with a dyed mohawk, they will likely go elsewhere. If you go to college, then there are no real restrictions as to what you can do with your hair.

Available Budget

How much money do you have to spend? If you get your hair cut short, then you could have to return to the barber or salon once or twice a month to get it fixed up. Unfortunately, there is a cost of living crisis at the moment. Very few people have enough money to buy luxury goods and items. And, going to the salon or barber twice a month is basically a luxury. Trips to the hairdresser can be very expensive. If you are on a budget, you might want to get your hair cut in a way that doesn’t need as much care and maintenance.

Spare Time

Finally, how much spare time do you have? Going to the barber twice a month isn’t just expensive, it’s also time-consuming. If you work all week, then the last thing you probably want to do on your days off is to be heading down to the hairdresser. Try to get your hair cut in a way that is easy for you to maintain and look after at home, so you can reduce your hairdresser appointments to once a month, or once every two months.

If you want to change your hairstyle, then you need to think through the things outlined here in this post. Thinking through these things will help you to make a better decision regarding your hair.  You should always be comfortable with your hair though, so whatever it is you want, go for it.
