The year is over so Happy New Year from the team at Legends Salon of Hillsborough! We were excited to spend quality time with friends and family but we are just as excited to welcome you all back in the new year!
With a fresh new year comes the question, is it time for a change? All the promise of 365 shiny new days can inspire us to get creative and try something new so we are going to run through two of the biggest options to consider with our award-winning best hairdressers.
Long or short?
Is there anything more feminine than beautiful mermaid-like curls? It’s the ultimate hairstyle status symbol, as immaculately kept long hair can’t help but look luxurious and expensive. For versatility long hair wins every time. Sleek and straight. Soft waves. Elaborate up-dos. Intricate braids. Sure, there is a little more upkeep, but it’s not something that everyone gets the chance to experience, so if you are able to grow it, why wouldn’t you? Even growing it out doesn’t need to be essential thanks to the amazing extensions now available.
When it comes to convenience, short hair is in a league of its own. Who hasn’t chopped off their locks and felt the most incredible sense of freedom and empowerment? It’s like those extra lengths can weigh us down physically as well as emotionally. With a perfectly cut bob, shag or pixie, short hair is downright sexy. It’s just so much more relaxed. No battling knotted tendrils into submission, no desperate last-ditch ponytails or headwear to get out the door. Spritz some texturizing spray in, give a quick scrunch and you are good to go.
Blonde, Brunette or Redhead?
Do blondes really have more fun? Are redheads fiery and passionate? Do good girls have perfect brunette locks? Hair color is so closely tied to people’s perceptions of us, both good and bad. When it comes to color we think everyone should feel comfortable enough to play around with different hair color at least once in their life.
For brunettes looking to go blonde, new hair color formulas mean that the damaged and broken peroxide hair of the past is truly gone. In its place are the most natural sun-kissed options to either ease into or metallic icy tones for those who want to jump straight in.
For blondes looking for a change, we love taking them to a deep, rich chocolate shade to make blue and green eyes pop but we especially love trying out a red. From vibrant gingers to warming wine tones, there is so much fun to be had with becoming a redhead and it is surprisingly adaptable to different skin tones.
For any color or cut change, we recommend coming in with some reference photos and having a full consultation. While playing around with colors and cuts should be fun and adventurous, there are still some things to keep in mind, namely face shape, skin tone, upkeep, and hair condition. When you are ready to make the change, you can rest assured that we are the best hairdressers near you providing the best colors and cuts.

Going to the hair salon can mean many things. You could be getting your routine maintenance at the salon, transitioning your look for a new season or dramatically changing your style. Whatever you plan on doing, there is one thing you should be avoiding: a bad hair appointment. If you live in NJ and are looking to change to a hair salon that gives you what you want, scroll down and make an appointment with Legends Salon in Hillsborough NJ.
For the salon experience to be a good one, there are a few things to look out for when it comes to your stylist. Below are some signs that you should break up with your hairstylist because no one wants to leave the salon looking worse than when they went in.
A trim means a trim
You know you have been to the salon looking for a trim and left with four inches of hair missing. This could be due to miscommunication because everyone has a different idea of what a trim means. Or it could be that your stylist simply disregarded what you asked for.
The lines of communication are not open
Following the miscommunication of a trim is the miscommunication of everything else. The best hairstylists wills it down with you before they even wash your hair and ask about what you hope to get out of the appointment. They should ask about your style preferences, your daily maintenance, your texture and everything else that can affect your hair. If you don’t have this conversation, there is a lot of room open for interpretation.
Socializing takes priority over hair
When you are getting your hair colored, this tends to be downtime for the colorist. No one expects them to wait on clients hand and foot, but if your hairdresser gets to the point of socializing, reading magazines and eating where they forget about your hair, it’s time to dump them. Leaving color in for too long can be damaging plus it’ll ruin the color you actually wanted to leave with.
Your example picture is disregarded
Showing an example of what you want is highly recommended as it makes for much easier communication. But when that picture is completely tossed to the side and you leave the salon with the opposite of what you asked for, your hairstylist will never give you what you ask for and you’ll be continually dissatisfied with your style.
Blow drying becomes damaging
Even if your cut and color went fine, you still have to get through the blow dry without damage. Whether it’s not putting a heat protectant on your hair or it’s using a heat styling product on way too high of a temperature setting, be sure you’re out of the line of fire when it comes to heat damage after an appointment.
While most of these things don’t happen often, they do, in fact, happen. You can be certain that the professionalism at Legends Salon of Hillsborough is superb. If you are dissatisfied with your current hairstylist, consider a move to Legends. We have some of the best hairstylists in New Jersey.
