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.

Ponytail

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.

Headband

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.

Bangs

Bangs cover your forehead and shape your face. They tell the world you're youthful, sassy and low-maintenance.

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!

I have this friend who has been my friend for 6 years. And she is so RUDE. She says mean things about me and MY MOTHER. Seriously she says really awful things about my mom like this: "Her IQ is high? Oh she must have took the IDIOT test." And tells me "Eww you wear Disney Princess shirts? Eww you are so messed up!" She always acts better than me whether we are alone or with people. She tries to make people hate me and she tries to act mature and she alway tells me "You should respect your mom and do what she tells you" She is awful. I wanna tell her she is mean and I dont wanna be friends. But I can`t! Its hard to do that when you know someone for 7 years. HELP!

As the previous person said, look online. There are very cute clothes available in bigger sizes! Also when you go shopping take a look in popular stores as well as less popular that might look as if they're for older people. Often they follow very similar trends but have bigger sizes!
