What Does Your Hairstyle Say About You?

Mar 08, 2012

We all know how important first impressions are. Before someone opens their mouth for the first time to speak, without realizing it, we form an opinion of them. One of the first things we notice is someone’s hairstyle. You get an impression, right or wrong, whether someone is neat, sloppy, carefree, confident, fashionable, sassy... So what is your hair saying about you? 

Long, Loose Hair

A girl with long, flowing, wavy tresses is seen as playful, relaxed and easygoing.

With your hair up in a ponytail, you can't hide behind your hair. It shows you're sporty, fun-loving, and probably pretty confident.

The headband look used to belong to preppy girls, but celebs like Paris Hilton have opened up the playing field. Girls who accessorize with headbands are seen as natural, open and playful.
