Your clothes have evolved; your hair hasn't.
According to Brocato, altering your clothing style is the perfect excuse to update your 'do. This way, your new look will work from head to toe literally. For example, if you've recently lost weight and are finally sporting all those curve-hugging clothes previously relegated to the back of your closet, you might want to get a sleeker, more face-flattering coif.
Two words: Brillo pad.
Lopping off significant length may be the only way to eliminate dryness. But in the meantime, switch to a cream-based styler (such as Kiehl's Creme with Silk Groom) to add moisture to your hair, which will render it more supple and less apt to break.
You pull your hair into a ponytail all the time.
Garrison suggests adding bangs or layers to give your locks some shape that way, you'll be more apt to wear them down.
You spend more than 20 minutes styling your hair.
If it takes this long, your cut is clearly not making the most of your texture. A fast fix: Get your stylist to create 'dos that work with your curls (like long layers) or that boost your lank locks (like a blunt bob).
Your stylist could cut your hair with her eyes closed.
Sounds like someone's in a rut (not just you). Seek out fresh eyes/scissors.
The easiest way to keep current? Start with a versatile cut, then alter your texture and color as often as you like! For a look like the one shown here, begin with long layers and use volumizing spray on your roots. Try: Phytovolume Actif Volumizer Spray for fine or limp hair.
