In my last post, I encouraged you to make sure your hairstyle is updated, and is a flattering look for you. If you are afraid to try something new, one of the easiest ways to get an idea of what style and color looks good on you is to try an online virtual hairstyle site.
I found a site that is a lot of fun and easy to use. You just have to sign up and upload a headshot of yourself. One of the cool things about it is that if you find a style you like, you can print it out and take it to your stylist. Here is the one I found:
Here are some of my looks from yesterday, and from a couple of years ago on a different site:
I long ago decided that I want hairstyle that is quick and easy, so that limits me to something that I can wash and blowdry with a minimum of styling. That also means that I have to get it cut about once a month. Not to mention that I would probably be completely gray if I did not get my hair colored. I say “probably” because I have not seen the natural color of my hair since about 1984!
And speaking of completely gray, I know that there are those of you who are proud of all the gray hairs you have earned, and don’t see why you should have to pay someone to give you a different color. If that is you, go for it. Just make sure that you have a modern, pretty style. Personally, I believe that gray hair will ALWAYS make you look older. If you don’t agree, that’s fine. But at least try out the virtual hair colors and see what you think; in fact, ask a good friend for a second opinion.
I would LOVE to hear from you if you get a hair makeover using the virtual styler. It would be great to see before-and-after pictures, so send me some at Blog5020@aol.com and I will post them.
