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.
