Haircuts are tricky business. We’ve all heard horror stories about going to the hairdresser looking ok and coming out looking like a mess and emotionally scarred. Bad haircuts can ruin your mood for days if not weeks or months while you’re waiting for your hair to grow out. Just like good haircuts can make your day and make your life that much easier for the foreseeable future. Having a good haircut can actually cut down on stress and the time you spend wrestling with your hair in the morning. The thing is, however, that haircuts are usually a very personal thing. What looks great on your favourite celebrity or your best friend might look horrible on you and vice versa. Haircuts are best when they’re personalised for your face share and hair texture, but there are a couple of hair cuts out there that are safe for most people and are suitable for pretty much everyone. Same goes for universally bad haircuts too. Let’s take a look at some of the best and worst haircuts for women.
Best: Long Layers
Long layers are a good option for most people, but especially good for those with curly hair. If you’re curly and you have a lot of hair you know that feeling of having too much hair to be able to deal with. It goes frizzy, it’s heavy and it seems to form a pyramid on your head if you keep all of it the same length. So long layers are definitely the way to go. Plus the length might help to combat the frizz and keep your curls at bay just because of the weight of the long hair.
Worst: V Shape
It used to be a trend in the 90s and early 2000s, you know that haircut that created a v-shape around your face. You might think it’ll frame your face nicely, but really it just looks like a weird fishtail and also you can’t really style it any other way apart from wearing it down. No up-dos will work with that hairstyle and even a ponytail will look absolutely ridiculous. Stay away from this haircut.
Best: Soft Layers
If you have straight or wavy hair soft layers are your best friends. This type of haircut looks good on literally everyone and it makes your hair look good even if all you did was wash and dry it. The layers will add a bit of texture and volume to straight hair too, which is a win-win if you ask me. The number of layers will have to be determined by the hairdresser depending on your hair density and thickness, the same goes for the length of layers, but usually framing the face is a good idea.
