In Search for a New Haircut and Style

I've been dreading to cut my hair. It's been 7 months since the last time I visited the hair salon and for my nails to get done too. Imagine how dry, flaky and out of body my hair is right now. After my two pregnancies, I have let my hair loose and grow on its own. Always my resort is to have it in ponytail and bun it. It's easier, polished and convenient for me having two kids totting around with me, it's quite impossible to have it styled like I want it to be. Styling was never an option for me. I have dry, coarse, wavy and thin hair. It's like in a malnourished state, isn't it? What makes it worst now is my scalp is flaking. I always reasoned that I'm so stressed up that's why dandruff is at its peak. On the second thought maybe it's his way of telling me that he needs an overhaul and pampering. My hair is in the verge of screaming. Tadaahh! Why not?

Okay, now I'm scouting for a haircut that suits my hair texture and that compliments my face shape. Then I encountered this on site...

Normally, when we choose #hairstyles we follow what cut we like. We also have to consider if it looks good on us or if our hair behaves with it otherwise it won't be like the way we want it. In choosing a cut or style, we have to take into consideration our lifestyle. A good, low maintenance hairstyle is more appropriate for me since I'm a working momma: always in a hurry every single day. A good cut or hairstyle also depends on the one who styles and cuts. He or she should have the expertise. A reliable, dependable and professional hairstylist does the trick too. For me, a good one is one who can suggest and help you out on which style looks good on you. It's not about the money or how famous your salon is. It's about the credibility and how you take good care of your clients. And as for me, whether you're a little expensive or not, as long as you are passionate about hairstyling and treatment and you know how to take good care of your clients, I would not hesitate to comeback to you or even recommend it to others. I rarely know of a salon that caters such specialty. Right now, I'm still in the trial stage since I'm not a regular salon person. I don't have regular haircuts or hair treatments so I wouldn't know which salon is proven tested when it comes to quality of service.

How about you? Which salon do you recommend and go to for hairstyling and pampering treatments?

    1. Hi Ms. Jane!

      Dapat talga cguro I'll have my hair cut in short para low maintenance. Everytime talaga I cut my hair kahit trim lang, feeling ko ang gaan2x and very bouncy ng hair ko.. parang happy talga sya. I want treatment kaya lang it's too costly for me. Ipon2x muna Ms. Jane.. Thanks!!

  3. I read somewhere that shoulder-length styles work best on everyone. And then, maybe you can go for soft layers to frame your face. Wow, I'm sounding like an expert here :). And have you ever considered coloring it? It'll sure to bring life back to your hair.

    Post photos when you finally get your hair done, ok? :)

    1. Oh!! Thanks Pepper for the advise. I'll take that. But as to coloring, I think I have to set that aside. They say once you perm your hair, you should have it maintained regularly in the parlor since coloring and its chemicals would most likely destroy once hair if its not treated well. And I want it low maintenance only.

      Sure would post a photo of my new hair soon if I'm happy with it...;))
