Best Hair for Your Lifestyle

Whether you're a homebody or always on the go, this quiz will match you with a haircut that is perfect for your lifestyle

The best advice I've ever gotten from someone was to change my hairstyle.

Why? Because I was totally oblivious to the fact that my hair was ruining my life. And I'm not exaggerating or being a drama queen (at least not right now, ha). The hairstyle I've had for years was seriously getting in the way of how I lived my life. If you're not really sure what that feels like, I came up with a few scenarios to illustrate what I'm talking about:

Scenario 1: You're zooming down the highway on your "bad girl" motorcycle wearing a tight leather jumpsuit ... swatting aside your bouncy, perfectly coifed curls.

Scenario 2: You're at the country club's monthly gathering, trying to delicately toss your hair over your shoulder while drinking tea -- not so easy when you're sporting a spiked pixie.

OK, so I don't own a motorcycle and I've never been to a tea party. But I totally know the feeling of getting a haircut and then realizing later on that it's just not working for my lifestyle. Ever feel that way before? Yeah, it sucks.

But I always say, there's no point in making a mistake if you don't learn from it. Right? So I tracked down Cutler Redken Stylist Dean Holcombe to see what I could do to fix my life's biggest mistake. (OK, OK, I'll tone down the drama.)

I asked him why it's so important to pick the right hairstyle for your lifestyle, and he said, "The way you wear your hair reflects the way you want to be perceived in life." Not only that, you'll be more comfortable in your looks, which means you'll be more confident in the way you live your life. Perfect.

So answer some fun, simple questions about your lifestyle to get matched with your best haircut. And the next time your man/best friend/mom tells you to change your hairstyle, don't ignore them. It just might be the best advice you'll ever get.

Ashton Lee (Mon, 08 Sep 2014 06:58:14 -0700): Layers? Bull fucking shit. I hate layers, I want all my hair to be extremely thick and even longer than now. My style is "elf maiden" or "mother of dragons".
