Fresh hairstyles for the Gram

We all have those moments when the thoughts that come out of our mouths have absolutely no rational process or link to reality, in fact more often than not it’s just unrealistic!

A common request from people with super long hair ( anywhere from shoulders to ankles ) is ” I don’t want layers or remove anymore than 2 inches but I want it super full, I can’t blow dry it and I don’t want to use product” !

What, you think we make this up?

The longer your hair gets the heavier it is Fact #1.

Babe your hair is wrapped around your waist like a shawl at the beach, you look like your trying to break a world record! There is no face framing when you can tuck your hair into your socks Fact #2

But then the same person who wants color, who 1 year ago ( keep in mind her hair is at her knees! ) has blonde hair, got bored and coloured it BLACK now wants to go blonde! Fact #3 just because it looks natural, the color is there until it grows out!

We are not anti long hair but your expectations have to be aligned with reality when it comes to having super long hair, whilst you may love having a big mane to swing around at the club or flick into people in public places it can be just too long!

You have long hair and want a change?

Sure you may not be a rockstar with a hairdresser looking after your daily issues, your go to may be a top knot or a low pony and to be honest it’s getting a little boring!


But you don’t want to cut it, you don’t want to layer it or cut a fringe so what’s left? You visit the salon and say ” don’t cut the length, I don’t wants bangs, I like the color make me look different. We are guessing the hairdresser probly thinks your crackers. 

You may just need styling options, then in that case head in and discuss that with your stylist. If your serious about a change something either needs to be added or subtracted from what’s on your head, this may mean color, it may be some layering but something has to happen in order for there to be a change. 

Often boredom has been building up for some time and you really have no clue how to get out of the rut so get some inspiration from social media using some hashtags and see if anything looks interesting and head on into the salon. 

For hairdressers, it’s not about cutting it off, it’s about working out that image you have in your mind and delivering it, so lots of questions are needed to make sure we know we understood what’s going on inside your head.
