Tips on Your Perfect Hair Design

  Are you looking for the perfect hair design (or hairstyle)? Well, if you’re like most people, when you last tried to copy the hair design that was “in," the results were less than stellar. Why was that?
  The real reason is this: a great hairstyle is all about bringing out your best features and hiding the worst ones. Let's face it: we all have some flaws, and our hair is the perfect gift that nature gave us to “camouflage” the not so attractive ones. And just because a hair design is “hot" right now, it doesn’t mean it’s the right one for you. So, how do we, at Sharper Image Hair Design, tell which style is the best one for you?
 The first thing we do is identify the actual “shape” of your face. Is it oval, round, square, long and narrow, pear-shaped, or heart-shaped? Everyone’s face has a distinct shape. The best way to figure out your own face shape is to simply take a headband and pull all your hair away from your face, then look closely into a mirror. Is your face oval? Is it round? You should easily be able to tell.
 Now, if you’re looking at a specific type of style that is “hot," notice the face shape of the person wearing the style. Is it the same as yours? If it isn’t, it may not look as good on you as you might have originally thought. But the good news is there are plenty of hairstyles that are “hot” that can work with your face shape. At Sharper Image Hair Design, we can use our expertise - and your opinion - to narrow the search.
 However, let’s say you already have a great hairstyle that complements your face, but you feel it’s "tired," or old news. One way of transforming a "tired hairstyle" into a fresh-looking new style is to add some strategic lowlights or highlights. Brighten up the hair and you may be shocked at how “new” it will look.
 Our expert stylists will give you all the answers you’re looking for. Why not pick up the phone and give us a call? Or simply fill out our Contact Us on the right side of the page. What are you waiting for?

Hair Cuts

Great Haircuts vs. Good Haircuts

 Most people don’t really know the difference between “just a good haircut” and a great haircut. And there’s little wonder why that's the case. The reason is because ...nobody has ever explained it to them! So, here goes…

There are two reasons most experts would agree on.
  1. The cut itself must compliment your personality and face shape. For example: Remember Jennifer Aniston's cut? That was a great haircut because it complimented her specific facial characteristics. The cut would not have looked as good on Angelina Jolie.
  2. A great haircut looks good even as it grows out. In other words, it should look great between services. Hair grows at a rate of 1/8” per week. Cutting the hair every 4-6 weeks maintains its shape and placement.

 Typically, if hair is not at least “trimmed” every 8-10 weeks, it will begin to split at the ends and break. When this happens (and is left unattended), these ends will continue to split up the hair shaft, causing damage - damage that you cannot repair! Another thing (that might not make sense to the average person) is cutting the hair actually makes it grow faster and healthier. So, don’t make the mistake of letting your hair “grow out,” thinking that you’re making it healthier. Healthy hair is trimmed on a consistent basis.
