Three industry experts share their top tips on how update your look if you're ready to switch things up
GET A FRINGE
Session Stylist and Viviscal Ambassador Neil Moodie says "If you have long hair, some type of fringe is the perfect haircut change without cutting all your hair off. If you have short hair look, it can be hard to make a drastic change, so a fringe is the perfect way of adding something different"
BROWSE THROUGH PINTEREST
Samantha Cusick, Colourist and Viviscal Ambassador says "If I am every considering a change I like to make Pinterest boards so I get a clear idea of what I want and can translate accurately to my amazing team at the salon who kindly do my hair. I even put together a board of things I don't like to make sure that's avoided."
DON'T BE IMPULSIVE
"When my clients come to me looking for a change it is important for me to understand what it is they want to change, what is it that they are not currently happy with" says Philippe. "Once I have an idea of what that is we can look at changing it up. It could be as drastic as a colour change or as simple as showing them a new way of styling their current look. My advice it to talk it through with your hairdresser, impulsive decisions are often regretted so take your time to figure out what you want to change."
MAINTAIN YOUR HAIR HEALTH
"No matter what you decide to do with your hair, remember to care for it. I always recommend taking Viviscal supplements to keep it looking strong and healthy." Says Neil "You can't go wrong if your hair looks thick and shiny"
TRY A WIG
Hairstylist and Viviscal Ambassador Philippe Tholimet says "If someone is heading for a drastic haircut but don't want to take any risks I would advise to do it on a wig first and if you like it you can have it done on your hair afterwards with no drama"
UPDATE YOUR WARDROBE
"Look into changing your wardrobe a little too, then you're working on a whole new look instead of just a haircut." Says Sam "Be bold, brave, and just remind yourself it's only hair, it grows!!"
WHEN IN DOUBT, GO FOR THE PONY
"If you have a bad hair day then put your hair in a high ponytail or in a quick up do." Says Philippe. "It will instantly lift your face. Make it super sleek and shiny or messy - it's up to you."
EXPERIMENT WITH COLOUR
"Balayage is such a huge colour trend right now! A free hand hair painting technique that can be as subtle or as obvious as you like! It can also be super low maintenance as it is seamlessly blended form the root so no obvious regrowth." Says Sam Cusick
