Fall is the perfect time to switch things up with a new redhead haircut. Getting a new cut can be scary if you don’t know what you want. Well here are a few tips to help you decide which haircut you should get!

Determine Your Length Now

One thing you can’t do with a haircut is adding hair on (unless you get some ginger extensions) so be sure to consider the length you have now. If your hair is chin or above it may be considered “short”. If your hair is chin to collarbone it may be considered “medium”. If your hair is longer than that it’s considered “long”.

Do You Want Some Upkeep or Drastic Change?

Do you like your current style but just need some shaping and upkeep? You’ll want to just get a trim and maybe add some layers. If you want to make a big change, consider chopping off a few inches, adding layers, or getting bangs.

How Short Are You Willing to Go?

If you’ve always had hair around the same length, it can be a big change to get used to something shorter. Consider your lifestyle and how much effort you want to put into your hair. If you are super active or like to wear your hair up, don’t go for anything shorter than your collarbone.

Do You Want Thinning or Layers?

Thinning and layers can help shape your hair and reduce some weight. Consider if you want to do either of these things prior to getting a cut. Let your stylist know you want one or both of these changes made so they can adjust the cut accordingly.

Are You Considering Bangs?

If you’re thinking of getting bangs, consider how they will look with your current hairstyle. You may need some blending or may even want to shorten it up a bit to match your new fringe.

Get Inspired

Once you’ve determined what your needs and wants are for length and style, start looking up styles online to find the perfect cut. Select a few photos you like and bring them to your stylist for your new fall look.

Rock it like a Redhead!
