When you're planning a special day, such as a wedding, prom, or even a school dance, one thing you really want to get right is your hairstyle. Celebrity hairstyles can provide great inspiration, giving you a multitude of ideas for how to have your hair done on that special day. Because it is so important to look your best, you'll want to start looking for celebrity hairstyles early. You can find pictures in fashion magazines or check their websites. Another great way to find a good style is to search Google Images for "celebrity hairstyles." When you find the style you want, print out the picture and take it to your favorite hairstylist. You don't want to spring a special hairstyle request on your stylist at the last minute, though. Take the photo in when you schedule your appointment, and make sure the stylist you make your appointment with is confident in his or her ability to carry out the style. Even if you really love a certain style, be willing to be flexible if your stylist tells you that it won't work in your hair. If you insist on having the stylist try anyhow, it could result in extreme disappointment for you. Not every style works for everyone. Some of the reasons your hair might not be compatible with a certain style are if your hair is too short or if your features aren't complemented by the style. In other words, if you don't have a face like Jennifer Lopez, you might not be able to pull of her hairstyle. You have your own unique features, and you need to choose a style that complements those features in order to look your best. There are some styles that don't work for curly hair or are just too much trouble to make it worth the effort. If you have natural curls, why not find a way to accentuate them? Choose a style that makes the best of your hair, whether your hair is straight or curly, fine or thick. If your style change is going to be permanent rather than a one-night hairdo, you'll also need to make sure the change suits your personality and occupation. If you're a professional, you might not want to show up at work looking like a punk rocker. Don't choose a permanent style change based on a one-time event. You might look spectacular on your special night, but if you got your hair permed and colored to pull it off, you're going to have to live with that look for a few months. Do you like it that much? For a one-time style change, such as having your hair braided a certain way and intertwined with flowers or other adornments, you don't need to worry about what it will look like when your special day is over. However, you do need to worry about how long it will stay looking great in order to schedule your appointment for the appropriate time. You want your hair to look as fresh as possible, so schedule your appointment at the hair salon as close as possible to the event, while still allowing yourself time to get ready.
