What Does Your Hairstyle Say About You?

What Does Your Hairstyle Say About You?

Are You Brunette? Blonde? Redhead? Does it matter how you wear your hair? Darren Michael Hairdressing Salon in Oldham explore what your hairstyle says about you…

What Do The Experts Say?

Research shows that people still associate different hair colours and hair styles with personality ‘types’. Blondes are traditionally seen as flirty and less intelligent, redheads are feisty and fiery, while brunettes are serious and mysterious!

According to a study by sociologist Dr Rose Weitz, you can even be judged by your hairstyle! Straight hair is worn by women who are viewed as serious, professional and straightforward and those with curls are believed to be carefree and approachable! If you have short hair, expect to be seen as out-going, brave, independent and self-assured, while the perception for longer haired lasses is that they are sexy and fun.


Change Your Hairstyle Or Colour Without Damage at Darren Michael Hairdressing Salon in Oldham

The good news is that things are changing! Huge improvements in hair styling tools, hair treatments, hair colour techniques, hair extensions and hair care and styling products mean we can change our hairstyle or colour more frequently – without the damage!

Today, men and women are more versatile when it comes to their hair. We’ll wear curls one day, straighten our hair the next, add plaits or an upstyle and update the colour every few weeks or months. So we say forget about these ridiculous stereotypes and confuse the masses by changing your hair style every day of the week!
