Consider taking the plunge and changing your hairstyle

Afraid to get that cut? Is your hair always tied up in a ponytail?

Consider taking the plunge and changing your hairstyle

This is a good time of the year to actually ask yourself if you are happy and content with your hair. I am talking about the cut. Do you feel it represents you? Do you feel it makes you look good?

I know a lot of you keep your hair a certain length in order to tie it up for work which is practical seeing as we work so many hours a week. However, when it is down, is it doing what you want?


I had an inquiry from a Siobhan this week, she feels she would like to change her hair and has approached the subject with her hairdresser but keeps coming home with the same style. My advice to her was to make a plan.
Firstly, have an idea what the goal is and be realistic. If your hair is wavy, look at wavy styles. If your hair is straight look at straight styles. Secondly, at your next consultation, talk about the next process, I always guide my client from one haircut to the next, so that you know where you are letting grow. Sometimes top layers and short hair needs to be allowed to grow until your next visit. This really helps during your growing out period as you know what is happening and why. Therefore, you can put up with the floppy bits hanging down or the sides going out the way. Sometimes a blow dry in between makes it easier to handle or just gives you that boost you need to keep on going, as I know there are plenty of you that would love something different but you think you would not have the patience to do it.

Then there are others, men and women with long hair and are too afraid to lose any length. All I can say is that it does grow back. I want you to have a good look at it. For more advice, call, text or message me at the Arroo hair salon.

For those of you that do not know me, I have had a short fringe for years now. I have decided to grow it out. What I didn't realise is that my fringe is quite curly, so it is actually adding to the wild look that I love. I don't know if I like it more or not, as all you curly heads know, some days the curls are mighty and other days the curls are not so good. I've decided to go for it for now anyway.

Text, call, message Arroo with your inquiries.
