This is something you can skip doing by yourself. A good haircut is a good investment and if you are able to get a hairstylist whom you can trust, stick with him/her. Your look will be greatly influenced by the cut of your hair so make sure you get a haircut that suits your face frame and accentuates your best facial features. A skilled and experienced stylist who genuinely cares about how you’ll look is a treasure to find.

5. Get your hair color touched up on a regular basis.

It is recommended that color touch-ups be done about every 30 days. Touch up the roots by yourself using those DIY hair color kits. Or if you have the time and the money to spend, visit the salon and get a treatment to avoid color fading. By having your hair regularly checked by the experts, you are able to keep your hair from unnecessary damage.

BONUS Tip: Spritz some shine serum and get lustrous hair in an instant.

Keep a small bottle of shine serum in your bag so you can instantly add glam to your look whenever, wherever.

It’s quite a challenge to identify a specific attractive hair style because certain haircuts and styles complement different face shapes and facial features. Well, it isn’t really about the style of hair that you wear that makes you attractive. What is even more beautiful is a crowning glory that is healthy because healthy hair is naturally soft, lustrous and full of life. So make sure you rejuvenate your hair from the inside and out to maintain naturally attractive tresses.
