We are edging closer to the gentler, warmer days but unfortunately, with the weather recently, it seems that summer may be a long way off. But what better way to cheer up your life than with a new hairstyle. It is very easy to get caught in a style rut with your hair and end up with the same colour and style for a decade but if you are thinking of change, the time to do it is now.
It is only women who will understand that hair colour and style can have a substantial effect on our mood and confidence. There is nothing worse than a 'bad hair day'. If your hair is greasy, grey, or unruly, it can make you self conscious for the entire day. It is as simple as this - a woman's hair is her crowning glory. Get the hair right, and everything else about a look can slot into place.
Everybody will recognise the euphoria of walking out of the hairdresser with a new style or colour feeling a million dollars. There is no better feeling. Long live the hairdressers - the unsung heroes of Ireland. And in Galway we are very lucky to have so many talented stylists and fantastic salons on our doorstep. So go on ladies, treat yourselves to a new 'do'. In the words of L'Oreal 'Because you're worth it.'
So here are four suggestions for hairstyles this spring/summer
1. Grey hair
There was a time when going grey was met with despair and almost fear. However, being a silver fox has become incredibly popular so much so that those who are young in years are heading to the shops to pick up grey hair dye. Could you imagine that 10 years ago? Go grey and be proud.
Straight hair was popular back in the early noughties and love it or loathe it, straight hair is back so get those straighteners out.
3. High retro ponytails
Business in the front and a party in the back; the higher and more voluminous you can make your ponytail, the better.
