If you’re a little unsure about what to choose for your next look, we’re here to help! Before you come in, here are some things to consider to get you started.

What hairstyle best matches your face?

Believe it or not, the shape of your face plays a major role in determining what hairstyles will best suit you. For example, if you have a rectangular face with a sharper jawline, you’ll likely want to choose a haircut that helps soften that, rather than enhance. For that, we’d recommend a haircut that is a bit shorter, rather than a lengthier cut.

If you prefer to keep it long, however, a blowout for your hair can help add volume that complements your facial structure. Those with round heads will want to add a little height and/or definition for your new hair style. Women may want to seek out lengthy layered hair style, while men should consider hair styles such as the pompadour or brush back. If you have a triangular face, meaning your jawline is more pronounced and wider than your forehead, seek out a hair style that will balance that out.

Layers can help soften the look, but you’ll want to make sure they stop either above or below the jawline, rather than right at it, or you’ll just be drawing attention to it. Men may also want to consider nixing a fuller beard, which can make their forehead look narrower. We are happy to help you determine your best hair style. We have extensive experience and expert hair stylists at Ottalaus Salon in Utah County.

How often do you need to get your hair cut?

Like anything related to hair, there are a variety of factors that play into the answer about frequency of your hair cuts. If you have long, straight hair, you should be good to go 8–12 weeks between hair cuts. For super short hair styles, you’ll need to visit us a bit more frequently, typically within four weeks, since shorter hair can look out of sorts if it’s allowed to grow too long without some upkeep.

For more complicated styles (think: layers), you don’t want to go much more than six weeks in between haircuts; there’s a fine line between a shaggy-chic look and an unkempt mess, which is what will happen if you go without for much longer. One look that will have you visiting the salon most frequently? Bangs. It doesn’t take long for bangs to transform from blunt and edgy to in-your-face and messy, which is why you need to clean them up every two or so weeks. Of course, if you are also regularly coloring your hair, there is that upkeep to keep in mind when planning your next appointment.

What are the benefits of a haircut consultation with an expert hair stylist?

Our stylists exist to help you become your best self, so please do take full advantage of consulting with them. If you’re unsure how a new hair cut will suit you, they are here to steer you in the right direction so you leave our salon looking and feeling great. Consultations don’t exist to make decisions for you.
