Boise Hair Salon Tips: Reasons To Try A New Hairstyle

Many women throughout the Treasure Valley fear trying out a new cut or hair color. They worry about the way it will look or that it won’t turn out the way they had hoped. Simply put, they are scared of trying something different even though they want something new. However, the best thing about hair is that it grows back — nothing you do is going to be permanent!

If you’re looking for a bold, new hairstyle, make an appointment at unDONE Salon. We offer a wide variety of services to help you achieve the look you want. That’s why we’d like to provide you with the following reasons to get over your fear and try something new!

It’s Not Permanent

As we stated above, your hair is constantly changing. Even if you’re not doing anything different, it’s always growing. Depending on sun exposure, your color can also change day to day. So if you are worried about doing anything permanent, forget about it! Your hair will always grow back…

It Will Spice Up Your Look

There are times in our lives when you just need a change. You realize that things have become monotonous and old. This is when many people get tattoos, buy a new car, move to a new area, etc. However, wouldn’t it be easier and much less of a commitment just to change up your look?

Getting a new cut or hair color can provide you with the change you need to feel fierce and in control of your life. Not to mention, this option is a little less drastic than the ones listed above. At unDONE Salon, we say go for it! Cut off those lone locks you’ve been rocking since high school and get the pixie cut you’ve always wanted. You may end up loving it way more than you thought you ever would have!

You Can Rock Different Styles

Trying a new cut or hair color is a good way to figure out what you like. Today, there so many options to choose from that the possibilities are pretty much endless. Even better, with so many people rocking different styles, you can pretty much pull off any look you want and make it seem normal. So why not try going blonde for a while? You may end up loving the change and finding a color that looks even better than the one you’ve got now.

It’s Almost Back-to-School Season at unDONE Salon!

With summer vacation slowly coming to an end, parents throughout the Treasure Valley are busy checking things off their back-to-school shopping lists. Between buying supplies and clothes, however, it’s just as important to schedule a fresh new haircut or style to start the year off right. At unDONE Salon, our stylists pride ourselves on providing quality hair salon services for the whole family. Let us help you get back-to-school ready with an exciting new hairstyle!

Avoid DIY Disasters

Although it may seem like a good way to save some money, cutting your child’s hair is never a good idea. No one wants to look back and remember the botched bangs or uneven haircuts their mom gave them. Since children can be squirmy and unpredictable, it’s important to let the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE handle the back-to-school haircuts.

Prepare For Fall Sports

While your child’s hair may have grown out over summer vacation, long, shaggy hair may not be the best choice if your child is planning on participating in fall sports. In fact, overgrown hairstyles can get in the way of practicing for the big game. At unDONE Salon, our stylists can create a haircut or style that’s easy to maintain for even the busiest kid.

New Do, New You!

When your child gets the perfect cut or hairstyle that showcases their personality, you’ll see a big difference when it comes to boosting their self-confidence.

Boise Hair Salon Tips for People With Long Faces

Change is good. But when it comes to getting a new hairstyle there are some important things to consider: hair type, facial features and most importantly, the shape of your face. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to finish off our face shape series this month by putting together a list of hairstyle tips for people with long faces.

Characteristics of a Long Shaped Face

Long face shapes are typically characterized by slim, elongated features with high foreheads and narrow jawlines.

  • Defined Cheekbones
  • High Forehead
  • Narrow, Smooth Jawline

When it comes to hairstyles for long face shapes, the aim of the game is to balance things out by making your face look rounder and more oval in shape. The last you want is something super harsh that accents the length of your face.

Bangs

Rounded or blunt bangs can really help to break up the length of your face. If you decide to go with the second option, the fullness and shine of blunt bangs can provide you with a much-appreciated youthful look. Long side bangs on the other hand, also help to balance the length of your face by partially covering your forehead.

Waves or Curls

More often than not, straight hair makes a face look longer. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE suggest women with longer faces add some waves or curls to their hair to create the illusion of width. If you have naturally curly hair, don’t ruin those gorgeous curls by straightening them out. Instead, try adding some layers to create additional texture.

Pixie Cuts

Pixie cuts are probably one of the best hairstyles for people with long faces because they help cut the length of the face, instantly making it appear shorter than it actually is. However, you don’t want to add any additional height to your forehead. Short pixies or pixies with spiky hair will only make your face look longer. Instead, longer, flatter pixies that sweep down in front of the ears are a perfect option.

Chin-Length Bobs

A bob that ends slightly below your chin is perfect for long-shaped faces as it creates the illusion of width. And, of course, you can give your hairstyle any effect you want with the perfect haircolor. From too casual to totally messy, a bob is an excellent way to style your hair!

*Tip: Don’t forget to add a few face-framing layers as they will help soften the look and boost the illusion of a shorter face.

Shoulder-Length Hairstyles

Perhaps the oldest trick in the book for those with longer faces is a shoulder-length hairstyle. In fact, it’s incredibly flattering. The trick to framing longer faces, however, is never to drag them down vertically. The goal rather is to give you a wider dimension by decreasing its length. For those with wavy or curly hair, a good hairstyle length is just below the shoulders. For those with straight, fine hair, keeping it above the shoulders is probably your best bet.

Choosing the Best Hairstyle for Oval and Heart Shaped Faces

In last week’s blog, we covered hairstyle tips for people with round faces. This week, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to extend the topic by offering some suggested guidelines for those genetically blessed with an oval or heart shaped face.

Oval Shaped Faces

For those blessed with an oval face, good news! You can pull off just about any hairstyle you want. In fact, most people with different face shapes tend to style their hair to give the illusion that their face is more oval. However, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE have a few tips when it comes to deciding what cut you might like to try.

Tip #1: Add Some Layers
At unDONE, we recommend adding layers to really highlight the features you like most about yourself. Another suggestion? Try adding layers around your cheekbones, lips or chin to really frame your face and showcase your best features.

Tip #2: Change Things Up!
A distinctive, modern cut or haircolor can really brighten things up and give you a new look! While we often like to keep our hairstyle the same because we’ve grown accustomed to it, wearing the same cut, style or color for years at a time can actually make us look older. At unDONE, we recommend choosing a new cut that fits your personality. Try adding some highlights or lowlights or think about trying a shorter style if you’ve always had long hair. However, it’s important to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist to help you choose the perfect look.

Tip #3: Embrace Your Natural Beauty

If you’re happy with your look, it’s important to embrace your natural hair and texture. While it’s fun to straighten and curl your hair for special occasions, the time, money and damage aren’t always worth it. Instead, learn to love your natural beauty!

Heart Shaped Faces

For those blessed with a heart shaped face, you more than likely have killer, sexy cheekbones. Heart-shaped faces tend to have a wider brow with a narrower chin. The good news? There is a variety of fun, elegant and simple haircuts that look wonderful on heart shaped faces.

Tip #1: Try A Long Bob

A long bob is known to soften hard facial features. This shoulder length haircut can really frame your beautiful heart face and draw attention away from a strong jawline. In fact, a long bob can be particularly good for anyone who feels a little self-conscious about their prominent cheekbones or jawline.

Tip #2: Long, Side-Swept Bands

Long, side-swept bands are a great choice for those who have a narrow chin. Opting for this look can help redirect attention from your chin and help soften your face. However, if you are thinking about going with a more blunt choice in bangs, make sure to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist about the width they recommend. You don’t want to add additional width to your brow if you have a heart-shaped face.

Tip #3: Deep Side-Part

If you want to open up your face and show off those amazing cheekbones, try going with a deep side-part. With some proper makeup techniques, this hairstyle will help showcase all the best features your face has to offer!

Boise Hair Salon Tips: Choosing the Right Hairstyle

Choosing a new hairstyle can boost your confidence and change your life. While it’s easy to find a variety of hairstyles you like online, it’s important to find a hairstyle that is perfect for you. While nothing compares to the professional advice of a Boise hair salon stylist, we would like to provide you with a few basic guidelines to help you decide on the perfect look for your hair.

#1 Face Shape. When considering a new hairstyle, it’s important to determine the shape of your face. Do you have a round face, heart face, or long oval face? It’s all about framing your face to bring balance your overall features.

#2 Hair Texture. Certain hairstyles complement different hair textures. While we all want what we can’t have it’s important to make a reasonable decision when it comes to achieving the hairstyle we desire. Choosing a hairstyle based on your hair’s texture will not only provide you with a great style but make it easier to manage on a daily basis.

#3 Lifestyle. How much time to do you have to spend on your hair each day? While it’s fun to play up your features with a new look, it’s important to factor in your lifestyle and whether or not you will have the time to maintain a high-maintenance hairstyle each day.

#4 Play Down Flaws. In the same way a hairstyle can highlight certain features, it can also draw unwanted attention away from features you don’t like. For example, if you dislike the size of your neck, forehead or ears, you can choose a hairstyle that helps cover or downplay them.

#5 Haircolor. When it comes to a new hairstyle, a beautiful haircolor can transform your appearance making you feel fresh while boosting your self-confidence. Keep in mind, however, that picking the wrong haircolor can come with disastrous results. That’s why it’s important to ask your Boise hair salon stylist for advice when it comes to what they feel would be the best choice for your skin tone, hair type, etc.
