When deciding on the right hairdo for yourself, there are a few basic things to consider before you step into our hair salon close to Disney for your New Year New Do: your face shape, hair texture and skin tone. Whether you are looking for a new haircut, hair weave in Orlando, hair extension in Orlando, hair color in Orlando or want to start the new year with a personalized hair solution in Orlando such as Botox Keratin treatment Orlando, lets discuss what you should consider with the experience and intelligence of our hair stylist expert in Orlando.
Face Shape: Not every person needs to consider face shape since your face shape only matters if you have a feature you’d like to downplay like a pointy chin or a large forehead or a really long face. The right hairstyle can downplay those features, whereas a wrong one can highlight them. You also want to determine what your face shape is.
An oval face shape is where the forehead and jaw are the same width. This particular face shape works well with any shape and style, you just want to avoid styles that hang in your beautiful face shape.
A round face shape is where the length is approximately equal to width. Hairstyles that work well with this shape are those with height and fullness at the crown creating an illusion of a narrower face. Middle parts also create this illusion. No bangs are ideal because the focus point become the bridge of the nose creating a more oval shape. If you absolutely love bangs they would look best swept across the face. You want to avoid hairstyles that add volume width wise like chin length bob cuts.
A square face shape is distinguished by a strong and broad forehead as well as a angular jaw. Hairstyles you may want to try are wispy bangs swept over to one side to create a diagonal movement to minimize square shapes as well as styles with height at the crown will work in your favor. You want to avoid blunt bobs sitting chin length and heavy bangs that will magnify your jaw line and squareness. Middle parts with solid bangs may also not work in your favor.
A heart face shape is wide at the forehead and cheekbones and narrow at the jawline. Any textured chin-length hairstyle or shoulder length cuts with wispy layers that kick out will work best for this face shape. If you want bangs try side swept bangs not blunt cut straight across bangs as this will only make your face shorter and wider. Also adding height on top if you prefer longer styles will work in your favor. Avoid slick back looks that emphasize your upper face.
A triangular face shape is identified by a wide jawline and narrow forehead and cheekbones.Hairstyles to try are layered hairstyles that will balance and soften prominent jaw line, especially when tapered at the jaw line can be especially flattering. Try to avoid hairstyles that draw too much attention to your chin area such as blunt bobs.
A diamond face shape is when the cheekbones are high and wide and the forehead and jawline are narrow. This shape face is one that works well with blunt straight across bangs that will help shorten long faces as well as side parts. Hairstyles that tuck behind ears to extenuate the amazing cheek bone structure this face shape has. Also chin length bobs or shoulder length hairstyles compliment this face shape. You will want to avoid short styles with height on top that leave no hair on the neck area or chin area. You also want to avoid middle parts as this adds length.
An oblong face shape is longer than it is wide with a long straight cheek line. Layered styles in medium and long lengths with body created by wavy and curly textures can soften the straight long lines of this face shape. Also chin and shoulder length hairstyles that turn under or kick out compliment this face shape. You will want to avoid middle parts, height at the crown and the absence of bangs will only lengthen your face.
Hair Texture: Our hair stylist expert in Orlando will assist you in determining your exact hair texture and hairstyle for your new year new do. A universal truth about the hair we are born with is that nobody is satisfied with their natural born hair type. Ladies with pin straight long hair that curly girls crave complain that their hair is limp and dead. While women with thick full curly hair complain over frizz and those with wavy hair moan about how inconsistent their curl pattern is. No one is ever satisfied, but let our hair stylist expert in Orlando assist you in leaving our hair salon near Disney completely satisfied and provide a hair solution in Orlando by helping you understand that it’s not your hair type it’s your haircut style. The right haircut style can transform straight hair from flat to full and wavy, curly or highly textured hair to frizz free locks with a bounce in every step. It can also save you time styling in the morning.
Type 1 Straight Hair reflects the most sheen. It is also the most resilient hair of all of the hair types. It is hard to damage and next to impossible to curl this hair texture. Because the sebum (natural oil produced in the sebaceous glands of the scalp) gently works its way from the scalp to the ends without the interference of curls or kinks, it is the most oily hair texture of all, which
has the tendency to fall flat fast and an expert cut is needed since straight hair has no forgiving factor and any mistakes made will be very visible. The right cut from a hair stylist expert in Orlando would be a blunt style keeping the thickness and fullness of the hair. You may also consider adding a few long layers being careful not to thin out the bottom and make the hair appear stringy. Dry cutting is the ideal technique with this hair type, never a razor cut that can sheer the hair and sever ends. You want to keep your cut about an inch or two past your shoulders or it will get weighed down and be more difficult to create volume. A pixie cut for short hair is also ideal cut in an abstract style to create layers which add volume and allows great versatility.
Type 2 Wavy Hair lies somewhere between straight and curly hair. It also imparts sheen, more than curly hair, but less than straight hair. Wavy hair is typically more prone to frizz. Producing perfect waves all comes down to the haircut style. Layers, layers and more layers is ideal, but being careful not too add to many that will leave you with the dreaded “mushroom” cut. Your hair stylist expert in Orlando here at our hair salon near Disney will ensure layers are placed through out the interior and exterior of the hair creating a draping effect that will add softness and definition especially when shaped with a razor. For women with long wavy hair, the most flattering cut is long, graduating layers with a side-angled or sweeping bang. Adding a few face-framing pieces will also keep hair from crowding or elongating your features. You want to avoid blunt or bob styles with this length as the bottom may get to heavy and give your hair a triangular look. If you prefer a short style you should stick to a one length cut as too many layers will make you look rounded also adding a long bang and texturizing ends can soften the look.
Type 3 Curly Hair is where we will get a little scientific on you. As a black hair salon in Orlando we specialize in hair weave in Orlando that is more often then not the hair solution in Orlando for this specific hair texture. But more and more naturalistas are standing up and embracing their texture. Let’s briefly discuss the chemistry behind your curls. The amount of curl in your hair is dependent on the number of disulfide bonds between hair proteins found in the hair shaft. The hair is made up mostly of keratins and other proteins that are formulated in the cells of the hair follicle becoming a a part of the hair shaft and contain sulfur atoms. When two sulfur atoms pair up and bond, they form a disulfide bond; the more links the curlier the hair, the less links the straighter it is. Most curly women and girls have at the minimum 2 different hair textures of hair on their head. If you pull a strand of a type 3 curly, you will notice it has a definite S shape with or without products. This hair type is full bodied, climate dependent (humidity = frizz), and damage prone. Lack of proper care renders dull curls. If you apply too much styling product= weighed down/greasy looking curls, apply too little styling product = afro! The key to guaranteeing effortless, frizz free curls is proper styling product application. Sticking to a cleanse, condition, moisturize, then apply your styling product of choice routine will maintain those luscious locks. A layered cut is best for this hair type because it removes bulk, creates movement, and helps with curl placement—the layers create a cascading effect where the curls fall into each other, creating better flow, balance and as previously mentioned, shape. Cutting curly hair while dry is an absolute. You want your hair blown out prior to cutting so you can see the true length and therefore achieve a precision cut.
Type 4 Kinky Hair this tightly coiled hair is quite fine and fragile contrary to popular belief. It is wiry, and delicate by nature. Each strand usually has a zig zag pattern. Kinky hair is the driest hair type and therefore needs added moisture daily to prevent breakage and give the hair suppleness and elasticity. A misconception exists that this hair type does not grow. Kinky hair grows at the same rate as other texture what makes it hard to grow is when not treated properly it can break more than other textures. Treat this hair type like a fine silk blouse – cleanse gently, detangle softly, and avoid harsh chemicals. You want to start with a creamy, sulfate free, moisturizing cleanser, follow suit with a super hydrating conditioner, prep with a rich moisturizer and style with a rich cream, full of natural oils and rich butters. Look for moisturizing humectants, natural conditioning agents, and exotic extracts to add moisture to these locks. Avoid mineral, and petrolatum oil and heavy waxes. Some women with kinky textured hair choose to relax their locks. We offer many different smoothing treatments such as Keratin treatments Orlando, Botox Keratin treatment Orlando that last until the hair is cut or grown out, and allow for more options with the cut. And although with these treatments you are changing the texture
of your hair it is best to stick with a cut designed for this hair type, in the event you re-embrace your natural texture.
