There are entire research projects dedicated to how age and life satisfaction influence our choice when it comes to our hairstyle. The more we love ourselves and the more we accept ourselves, the more our hairstyles actually fit us. But sometimes, an attempt to achieve a cool new image is shattered by a harsh reality: the level of a hairstylist’s professionalism is not even close to the price we pay trying to save some money.
We at Bright Side couldn’t ignore the obvious evidence that choosing the right professional is extremely important.
