How Do I Style My New Haircut?

Even after a new haircut, are you still styling the same way?

Here is a recurring hair struggle that comes up often in my class Finding the Right Hairstyle for You! Heather asks this recently on our class message board;

Does this happen to anyone else? Even after I get a new haircut & hair color, I still find myself blow drying my hair and curling it or styling it the same old way as before. Then my hair doesn’t seem to change much as far as style, unless I go really dramatic. Help!


When you change your hair style . . . pay attention and ask questions! It’s sooo easy to miss the quick steps your hairdresser uses to sculpt in the new shape they have just created for you. You need to step up to the plate and ask questions if your hairdresser doesn’t take the lead in giving you the instructions and how-to’s of styling your new haircut. How you style your hair means everything!

“Bring Your Own
Hair Dryer”

I loved what a swanky salon in San Diego has done for servicing their customers with this problem. Jet Rhys Salon, is run by former Vidal Sassoon specialists and services a wide variety of clientele. American Salon magazine touted the salon as the place surfers, corporate climbers and soccer moms go to get their hair cut. They have a monthly event called, BYOB or Bring Your Own hair dryer. The hairdressers show clients how to use their own tools and hair styling products to recreate the hairstyle they got in the salon.

The clients actually do their own hair styling as the hairdressers show them what hair care products to use and give tips and techniques on how to use the hair styling tools. What a great concept!! I love this event. Pass the word on to your hair salon owner about this new service. Can’t see why they wouldn’t jump on it. In my opinion, it’s a win-win for everyone.

Here are some of Jet Rhys Do’s and Don’ts on hair styling from Twist magazine.

Hair Color Experts Advice

Coming Back from a Hair Color Catastrophe

In a perfect world, home hair coloring would always produce the glossy red or shimmering blonde high lights the packaging promises, but mistakes do happen, and they can be traumatic . . . to say the least! When the worst happens, your best course of action is to seek professional help, says Sheila Zaricor, president of Master Design in Memphis, TN.

“the box looks lighter than it will appear on hair”

The most common mistake women make with home hair coloring is overlapping their color, or applying hair color that’s supposed to go on new growth only throughout locks. The result? The line of demarcation becomes more noticeable, leaving a darker top and bleached, frazzled ends. Other times, color simply goes far darker than you anticipated—keep in mind that the hue on the box always looks lighter than it will appear on your hair—or you end up with a shade that would be more appropriate in a box of Crayolas than on anyone’s hair.

If the worst happens and you need someone to fix your hair color, keep in mind that nursing damaged hair back to health is a partnership between the hair colorist and client, and may need to be remedied in steps. That’s why you’ll need to find a hair colorist who you totally trust and feel comfortable with; someone who’s qualified and who has broad-based hair color experience. “Finding a good hair colorist is a lot like finding a doctor—always get credentials,” advises Sheila. Going with a hair color pro makes great sense, not just for emergencies, but for first-time hair color users or for women who are thinking of making a big hair color change. To locate a qualified hair colorist in your area, check out these websites:

  • The International Haircolor Exchange at

  • The American Board of Certified Haircolorists at

And take heart: A woman whose hair turned greenish-white after a hair coloring catastrophe once stumbled into Sheila’s salon. Four years and several neutralizing, deep conditioning and color treatments later, the woman is still a client, and her strawberry blonde hair is long, thick and healthy.

Strategy For Growing Out Your Hair

Growing Out Hairstyle

Growing out your hair in style

If you’re coming out of a season of shorter hairstyles, there’s no better time to consider growing it all the way to a shoulder sweeping length. Worn above the shoulders, fine hair looks healthier and thicker, while thick hair really show off it’s stuff.

“let all your hair
grow in unison”

When growing out a layered haircut, continue to get regular end trims (just a half-inch or so), slowly allowing layers to “catch up” with the ends. With each hair salon visit, ask if your layers need better blending to work with your cut as hair grows out. If you’re growing out bangs, too, at some point they will need to be blended into the sides and directed back.

A super-short crop actually presents fewer problems. Simply let the entire top and sides grow; when they are as long as the underlayers or close-cropped sides, let all your hair grow in unison. If you reach any awkward stages, use clever styling to conceal it. Adding wave, curl and movement with hot rollers, curling irons or pin curls can blend layers or bangs and hide problems by creating new shapes.
