Top Hairstyling Mistakes

Your hairstylist sees more hair disasters than you can imagine and is often called to repair them. Sadly, most could have been avoided. Avoid the same mistakes by learning what they are. Some of the more common hairstyling mistakes are listed below:

  • Waiting too long between haircuts – Most people should cut their hair every 4-6 weeks in order to maintain its cut, shape, and overall appearance. If you wait too long, your hair can become more difficult to style and show signs of damage. In addition, you may be tempted to trim your hair yourself, with potentially disastrous results.
  • Cutting your own bangs – While bangs in your eyes can be annoying, crooked bangs are sure to annoy you every time you look in the mirror. Most hairstylists offer low-cost bang trimming services, so take advantage of it.
  • Using high heat – While your dryer's highest setting may be fast, it's also much more likely to damage your hair. Use the low or medium setting of your hair dryer and curling iron and avoid frying your hair.
  • Pulling your hair back too tightly or when wet – When the weather's warm, a ponytail is the obvious choice. Be careful though as many people damage their hair by using rubber bands or pulling the hair back too tightly. Your hair should be dry when you pull it back as well.
