Have you ever had a hair cut that you have felt just didn't feel flattering. It may of been a style that just didn't suit your face shape. While there is certain styles that compliment your face shape there is also certain styles to avoid as well.
For Round Face Shapes:
Having fullness on the sides of your hairstyle, along with round hairstyles and cuts that end right at or above the chin line are some of the biggest mistakes those with round faces make. These tend to make round faces rounder.
For Oval Face Shapes:
Oval face shapes are said to be the ideal face shape and most styles can work with this shape. However keep in mind when experimenting that even though a style may suit your face shape it may not suit your hair type.
For Heart Face Shapes:
Fringes are the main concern. That's not to say you can't wear a fringe, you just need to ensure it s cut correctly. Heavy, short fringes that are too wide make the top the face look even wider. Steep concave bob with sharp point at the chin bring out the narrowness at the chine in an unflattering way.
For Square Face Shapes:
When you have a square face shape, getting blunt styles with heavy edges can be a mistake. Avoid heavy choppy layer, feathered layer will create softness.

If you over use hairspray
Helmet head from over hair spraying is not a look we tend to go for but don't fear it can fixed super quick. Wait until the spray has dried then with a detangle brush gently brush to try and break the bond. If you are still in a spot of bother a light mist with a moisture spray may help to.

The sun is bleach your hair, But you should be protecting it!
When we lighten your hair we do this under very controlled measures as we want to ensure the health of your hair isn't compromised. But, when we talk about the sun lightening your hair it is a total different ball game.
There is absolutely no control from the sun! A lighter hair colour as a result of time spent in the sun equals a permanently weakened hair shaft. Hello split ends, dryness and a whole lot of irreversible damage. Now you might remember back in the 80's and 90's there was these 'wonder' products that you used in conjunction with the sun to lighten your hair! We 100% DO NOT recommend anything like this. These type of product are going to compromise your hair and cause damage.
It is actually rather scary that a quick google search has a lot of 'recipes' to accelerate the lightening process from the sun! While the sun lightened look is a hot trend to strongly advise you to look at having it done professionally.
You can avoid this potential damage from the sun by simply wearing a hat or using the correct products. So what are the correct products? There are many out and depending on you hair type will depend on what is going to work best for you! They came in many different forms from creams to serums.
Hair tie mistakes that are causing damage
While hair ties are great and super handy for those 'Mum Bun' days. Using them incorrectly can cause damage without you even knowing. We have come up with a list of the most common causes of damage from hair ties.
Who doesn't love a slicked back pony tail? Your scalp and follicle aren't the biggest fan of them. The tight pressure can cause damage and even pull hair out from the roots. So be mind full next time you are wanting to rock that fierce sleek pony tail.
Sleeping With Hair Tied Up
Some of us wear it up to keep it out of way other to create a tussled look for the next day. Whatever you reason, please stop! Tossing and turning during the night and causing friction which will lead to damage and breakage. Try opting for a loose plait or braid.
If its a standard pony tail or your Mum bun if it is something you are doing on a regular basis then you want to look at mixing your styles up. You see rocking the same style you tend to put it in the same spot every time, the repeated position in the same area will weaken that section of hair and leading to damage.
Ties With Metal
You wouldn't except that tiny bit of metal to cause and dramas would you, well this are probably the main cause. So if you have some maybe look at replace with a snag free option. There are heaps on the market now our favorites are the spiral type (like an old school telephone cord).
