Is Short and Chic the New Look for You?

1 December 2021

If you are looking to change your style for a new look, or if you’ve got tired of your long hair and want to free up styling time in the mornings, short and chic hairstyles may be just what you need.  But will the look work for you?

Short and chic hairstyle tips

Here are a few tips from the team at Melissa Timperley Salons, if you’re thinking about going short.

1  Get advice from a stylist

Ask a stylist so that you go for a cut that suits the shape of your face and makes the most of your hair colour and type.

2  Collect pictures of styles you like

Pictures will help the stylist to understand what you want and to discuss what’s possible.



3  Listen to the stylist’s feedback

Pictures are a great reference but they tend to capture a hair style at a particular moment and angle. Your stylist will guide you, from their experience, how the style will work from all sides.


4  Explain

If you are after an easy to manage style emphasise this to the stylist. Some short looks can, in fact, take more styling than long ones (which can be quickly tied back). Once we’ve seen your hair type, your stylist can guide you on how much time you can expect to spend on your new look.

5 Consider a half way step

If you’re not completely sure. It’s better to trim more next time than wait to grow out of a style you’re not happy with.
