It seems like most articles about hair focus almost specifically on women. However, men may want to change their look by changing their hairstyles, too. There are many factors that come into play when it comes to hair and how to change it for a new look. Luckily, if you follow directions or seek help from experienced stylists, you can get the new look you want without dealing with any setbacks or disappointments.
Dying Your Hair
One of the easiest ways to make a noticeable change to your look is by changing your hair color. Dying your hair isn’t as difficult as you may think, but it does require effort and sometimes even some trial and error. The first thing you need to consider is what color you’d like your hair to be. Sometimes, even going just a few shades lighter or darker can be a dramatic change for you depending on different factors. If you’re not sure what color you want your hair to be, try looking at different photos of men with the same skin complexion and facial structure as you.
If you can spring for it, you may want to get your hair professionally dyed. Even the strongest hair fibers can become damaged from the chemicals found in hair dye. If you don’t want to end up going bald, try to seek the skills of a professional. If that’s impossible, make sure you follow all of the directions when you begin dying your hair on your own, especially if you are bleaching your hair. Remember, if you are trying to get a bright and unnatural color, say blue or green hair, you will more than likely have to bleach it first if your hair is naturally dark. Also, make sure that your eyebrows don’t clash with your new hairdo. It’s a huge turnoff for women.
Chop It Off or Grow It Out?
In addition to dying your hair, you may also be able to make a drastic change to your look by either cutting or growing out your hair. If you’ve had longer hair all for a long time, a shorter cut may be just the thing you’re looking for. Many times, shorter haircuts give off the impression of a more sophisticated appearance. Similar to going from long to short, if you decide to let your hair grow out, it can also make you look like an entirely different person. You will want to make sure you let your hair grow to a length that is most comfortable for you. Do not go too long if you know you won’t want to deal with the upkeep of your hair. While a lot of women do like long hair, most of them don’t want a man with oily and dirty hair. Also, keep in mind that long hair can be heavy and will definitely make you sweat in the summer time.
Make sure you take some time to figure out what hairstyle would work the best for you. If you change your look and find that you don’t like it, give it a chance. It may just take some time for you to get used to it.
