There is no doubting the importance of hair—its styling, is
shape, its color, its accessories. Walk down an aisle at any local
grocery store and see hundreds upon hundreds of things women use to
make their hair more beautiful. Through the decades, you can see different
styles take precedence. In the 80s, glamour came complete with big
hair—tall mounds of hair that seemed to be way too big for the
head they sat atop. In the 90s, women went to extremes, with sharp,
cutting edges and neon coloring to make sure they had the most beautiful
hair. Now, it seems simplicity is key. We are seeing the most beautiful
celebrities with their hair styled in the seemingly most innocuous
pony tails, buns, and straight styles.
It is hard to judge what is beautiful in any society. Some things
are generally more accepted as being beautiful in whichever area
you are in. So to are some hair styles gorgeous and beautiful in
one part of the country and irreprehensible and gaudy in others.
What is accepted on the red carpet at a big Friday night premiere
might draw unwanted attention and even chuckles if being worn to
the office on Monday morning. So, what makes a hairstyle beautiful
is truly in the eye of the beholder. It could be the color. Some
research indicates that, like a peacock, people are naturally driven
toward bright, colorful hair. It’s true that more vibrant
hair always does look better, but will the glowing red or winter
white draw the look you’re looking for. If you read the article
on Women’s Hairstyles, you see that the shape of the face
can play a major role in what hairstyle looks good on you. Short
hair draws attention to the supple nape of the neck, drawing upon
a man’s baser instincts. Long hair is considered formal, but
may not stand the tests of time on a long night of clubbing.
When we think about beautiful hairstyles, we think of what the
latest model or celebrity we saw was wearing. Unfortunately, with
most men, it is hard to get the feedback a woman is looking for.
Drawing out a conversation about what hairstyle products you use
could cause a man to lose interest in a conversation quick. Asking
him whether your hair looks better up or down puts many men in an
awkward position, because—not necessarily always being in
tune with the latest styles and fashion--they don’t want to
make the wrong choice.
Beautiful hair does not have to be complicated. It does not have
to take you hours to prepare. The secret to getting yourself that
beautiful hairstyle is to put everything else out of your mind.
Do not worry about what the models and stars look like. Do not worry
what the “in” style is supposed to be for this year.
Get yourself a hairstyle that makes you feel beautiful. If you use
that technique—worry about yourself and how you feel—in
any aspect of style chances show that you will be far more successful
than not. Beauty is in how you present yourself. The smile on your
face, the way you walk, and so much more is dependant on how you
feel and how to express and react to that feeling. It is not reliant
upon how you dress or even style your hair.
