Beautiful actress with shoulder length bobCan you believe that the Bob is back again?  Seriously, It was only a year ago that I remember writing about the exact same thing. Well, if you want ‘on trend’ hair then opting for the chop will you get there with ease. Messy, sleek, choppy or curly, anything goes – so give the hairdryer a break and go for  a summer short…

The Bob is a great hairstyle for anyone who wants a low maintenance but stylish look. If you have mobility issues then opt for a messy or tousled bob for little to no maintenance. On a budget? Go for a shorter bob without a fringe, this way it can grow out without losing you  points on style (especially for those tighter months when going to the hairdressers is just not an option).

If you are blind or partially sighted, make sure that you tell your hairdresser about any difficulties you might have when styling your hair yourself, this could make a difference to the type of treatment or cut that your hairdresser gives you. Seriously, there is absolutely no point in going for a roller set, big curl, bob if this is something you are not going to, or will be unable to stick to.

Have a think about what you really want before you visit the hairdresser, knowing what to ask for, how to describe it and whether your hairdresser has understood you, can make a huge amount of difference. Do the prep or risk bad hair!

Here are a few question you may want to ask when talking to a new hairdresser:

  • Will the style I want require a lot of maintenance, if so, exactly what am I going to have to do?
  • How long do you think it will take for ME to recreate this style in the morning?
  • How often will I have to come back to get this treatment/cut done?
  • Are you happy for my friend / carer/ partner to watch what you are doing, so we can reproduce this style at home?
  • Are you happy to describe what you are doing in detail – as you are doing it?
  • What products / tools will I need to reproduce/maintain this style?
  • Will the treatment you are doing cause any long term damage to my hair and is my hair in good enough condition for this?
  • What are the telltale signs of damage to my hair?

What questions do you always ask your hairdresser? Do you have a great hairdresser who you always go to?
