Finding the right hairstyle is not always easy, but considering your lifestyle will help. Most people will focus on their face shape, hair texture, and prominent features, and while these are important, your lifestyle needs to be factored into your decision as well because this, too, will help you choose a great style you’ll be happy with.

Match Your Hairstyle to Your Lifestyle

The average working mom, for example, may require a hairstyle that is easy to maintain because it’s just not realistic for them to play around with a demanding hairstyle that involves a lot of product or time. For this reason, you need to find a hairstyle that is practical so that it can complement your routine. If you’re unsure where to start, discuss your lifestyle with your stylist and ask them about their professional recommendation.

Generally speaking, shorter styles are faster because they take less time to style, so your morning routine will be much faster. Less hair will result in a quicker drying time and less work, and many shorter hairstyles will allow you to wash and go because you’ll be able to dry your hair naturally. This will work exceptionally well with curly hair types, so consider a shorter style if you don’t have a lot of time on your hands. If you have thick hair and want to cut down on the time it takes to style it, you can remove some of the bulk by adding layers or using thinning shears. This, too, will result in less hair and less drying time as having your hair layered or thinned out will make a significant difference in terms of time, and this kind of hairstyle may be more convenient for your lifestyle.

Lean Into Your Hair’s Natural Properties

It’s also recommended that you choose a hairstyle that will suit your hair’s natural tendencies, as this, too, will make things a lot easier. If you have naturally straight hair, look into hairstyles that will work with this type of hair specifically and if you have naturally curly hair, select a style that will take advantage of this aspect. Working with your hair’s natural tendencies will save you time and trouble because you won’t have to force your hair to conform. Advances in cosmetic chemistry have made it possible for people to change the natural tendencies of their hair. However, before you commit to this change, you must ensure that this style is truly what you desire. You will have to care for your new hairstyle and its specific considerations, which can be very different than what you’re used to.
