According to pop culture, people are identified by the cars they drive, foods they take and the clothes they wear. Such aspects reflect a person’s identity and their socioeconomic status. Our society believes that people’s outer look reveals their beliefs, values, and ideas. Hairstyles, makeup and clothes do show these labels.
Your hairstyle and its look is a self-expression that shows your traits. Hair traits such as texture, color, and length are some of the elements that reveal your personality. According to Susan Sommers, we value how our hair looks like to an extent of interfering with our daily moods. For instance, if someone says your hair looks great, most likely your energy will boost, and vice versa. In addition, wearing the correct hairstyle can increase other people’s confidence in you.
Some of the common hairstyles include:
Wavy, long length
If you have long hair, people will see you as patient, dreamy and very cautious. Those with wavy, long hair would do whatever it takes to attain their goals and are really choosy. They persevere and know their worth. Gisele Bundchen and Sarah J. Parker look great in long hair due to their slim figure. But those with a small face and body posture might not look good in this style. The hairstyle will make their body and face look submerged.
Straight, long hairstyle
Those with straight, long hair are seen as nice, flirtatious and sensual. According to Beenders, this style makes them feel sexier than others. In addition, Sam Brocato argues that this style goes in favor of people with high spirits. People with a small body and oval face should avoid this style. Minardi says that straight, long hair will make such people appear tiny because it will not show their neck and shoulders.
If you wear straight hair with curls, it shows that you crave lots of fun in life. Just as you crave for food, curling hair will satisfy our craving. The supportive evidence states that when you curl your hair, it forms a change where you attract exciting life experiences. This is because your hair looks interesting and people see you as a fun, positive person. Therefore, you should never try to straighten your curly hair as you will appear chaotic and disorganized. It shows you are not only trying to straighten your curly hair, but also your chaotic life.
Medium Bob Hairstyle
Those with medium bob hairstyle appear easy, graceful and powerful. However, according to Beenders, they must have tiny noses and cute eyes for this style to look good on them. On the other hand, women with a square-jawed and narrow face would not fit in this style.
Women with a short bob, Anna Wintour for instance, appear stylish, chic, firm and sexy. They look assertive and attractive. If you have a great jawline, perhaps you should think of having a short bob. Victoria Beckham rocks this hairstyle and she looks sexy. But, women with a round face should avoid it as it makes their face appear more rounded.
Short hair, whether styled as bob or any other, make people appear professional. If you want to appear confident, then go for a short hairstyle. Also, people who sport this style are taken seriously.
Women with bang styles such as Nicole Richie portray a sense of humor, youthfulness, and femininity. However, they must not be too short and their forehead should be narrow. Otherwise, this style would make people with face-box appear like their face is short. If your face has a wide forehead, then wearing a bang style would cover it. However, Beenders states that bangs could make such people appear dramatic.
This style shows boldness and confidence. Beenders says that the style suits best people with cute faces and tiny heads. However, they should put makeup on to appear feminine. Halle Berry has always worn pixie style and she looks really bold and confident.
As you can see, different hairstyles reveal different personalities. Therefore, you should select your hairstyle wisely to avoid sending wrong information to the public. Most importantly, do consult your hair stylist to help you select the style that suits your body shape, face, skin color, and preference.
