How to Choose a New Hairstyle

how to choose a new hair style

I’m considering (possibly unwisely) having my hair cut. I always want to get my haircut once I’ve grown it long, it’s a vicious cycle that I fear I’ll never really escape. I get easily bored with my hair and I’m also terrible at making the effort to style it, so when it’s long it either just hangs there like curtains or (most often) sits on top of my head in a messy bun. Nothing wrong with either of those hair-modes, it’s just that I’d like to have something that’s a little more…I don’t know. My brain is screaming the words “TIME-CONSUMING!” and “TEAR-INDUCING!” at me, because it remembers each and every time that I’ve had shorter hair, but my heart is whispering “stylish” and so stylish is what I’ll settle on. I want to have something a little more stylish.

If you want to come along with me on my weird, possibly stressful hair journey then you can begin by watching the video below (or here, if you’re on email) entitled “how to choose a new hairstyle”. I’ll show you a few pics of how I want my hair (roughly) to be, and also talk about what I like and don’t like about certain styles that I’ve had. The next videos in the series will be discussing colour and cut and include interviews with the colourist (John Spanton, of course!) and hair stylist (to be confirmed.)

If you’re thinking of a new style, then have a watch of this first. It’s a very oversimplified video about choosing haircuts, but at least it gets you thinking a little about what you do and don’t want. Oh, by the way, if you’d like to subscribe to my Youtube channel then please do! I’m very close to having 100,000 subscribers now so every little helps and I do like a good rounded number like that!

  1. If the video was taken in the 16th century you have aged immensely well. Jealous over here!

  2. Hi Ruth,
    If you are looking for an AMAZING hairdresser in London, you should go to Toni&Guy @ Victoria station and ask for Marcelo! I have been one of his clients for years and every time I see him I end up with a completely different hairstyle that is on trend AND suits my facial features perfectly! Right now I’m rocking a short asymmetrical curly haircut! It’s so cool, and I would have never picked this for myself!

  3. omg, i’m having the same dilemma, i keep looking at all the short haired girls in magazines and catalogues and thinking how much more gorgeous they look than the long-haired girls. It might just be growing pains, but I’m hankering after my pixie cut- it just made my face look so much better! Although I do remember when I had it I felt like a little boy without makeup and wished I’d had longer hair…

  4. I’m stuck in the same circle as you, can’t get out of it.
