A Brief Introduction
Finding the appropriate hairstyle for the particular occasion may prove a bigger chore than it should seem. The event in mind may be anything from the wedding day to a mere slightly more formal office party. Regardless its purpose, a person would always like to look his or her best (of course, taken into account personal tastes, the significance applied to personal aesthetics, and such).
Anyways, in these situations an equal amount of attention is paid to one's hair as it is paid to the dress.
So accordingly, this article aims to offer tips regarding this particular topic.
Where should I start looking?
Online, of course! This is because of the fact that the quality of the information online is so low that it's quantity is just respectively outrageous! What is meant by this is that there are thousands and thousands of galleries dedicated to formal hairstyles alone, available globally at the average Googler's disposal.
This is an easy way of making a selection of photos to print which may later on be shared with the person's stylist. Apart from that, a great number of the said sites also have "do it yourself" sections which may help the craftier of the Googler's to experiment a bit on his or her own.
But before the Internet, people were browsing through the salon's style books and portfolios instead. And seeing as most salons STILL keep these lying around, it is still a good idea to flip through a bunch of sections of the same the old fashioned way. This may also be a good idea because certain salons tend to specialize in certain updo techniques, and will thus have the relevant catalogs at the customer's disposal. It is also a good way of getting a glimpse at a couple of signature styles which could not be found elsewhere.
Other resourceful resources could include: magazines, articles, and so forth.
Whatever the case may be, once the source has been found, the choice must be then narrowed down to a manageable figure. This means picking but a couple of favorites to consider. While doing this, extra attention should be paid to the model, the type of face and as well as the hair density/quality he or she has.
This is to say that if the model has got really bushy thick hair, while the person's hair quality is all silky and thin, or vice versa, the hairstyle may be deemed unstable and unachievable.
Once the choices have been narrowed down to a reasonable number, the hair ought to be put in mock positions of the different styles in order to "try them on" in a fashion. A few of those ought to be picked, printed and taken to the stylist for a trial run.
Even though finding the right hairstyle in this way may cut out some extra time and effort, it is still a more fun and often satisfying way of doing it than merely letting the hairdresser throw in all of the suggestions or, worse still, make the final decision instead of the client.
