Hair appointments and gynecology appointments can be difficult to navigate, and for some it can be a source of embarrassment.
But for many women, getting a haircut can be more than just a hassle.
Read on for the experts on the best and worst hairstyles for women.1.
The Haircut and the GirdleFirst things first: There’s a reason why most women wear a long, flowing hairstyle.
“There’s so many ways to wear the hair in this day and age,” says Dr. Rebecca Cawthon, an associate professor of dermatology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
“You can go with a simple cut that’s not really a haircut but it does have a lot of styling options and a lot going on in terms of hair texture.”2.
The HeadscarfFirst off, what do you wear under your hair?
“It’s a great hairstyle to wear when you’re wearing your hair down, when you are getting your haircut, or when you want to go out and have fun,” says dermatologist Dr. Mary Ann Marzano, MD.
“I would never recommend going with a braided or straight hairpiece, because they are going to look weird under the hair.
But if you’re going to have a braids or straight, you want it to be at least two strands.
It’s the least invasive way to get the look.”3.
The BeardIf you’re into a long beard, a traditional one, Cawdon says, “The beard is the most basic part of a man’s beard.
It comes from a piece of hair, and you don’t have to get it out of the way.”
“I wouldn’t wear a beard if it’s too long, or too loose,” says Marzana.
“If you want a very defined beard, then go with something like a medium-length beard or a thick-cut one.
If you’re not interested in a long man’s cut, then you can opt for a straight or long one, or you can have a fuller, longer beard.”4.
The SkirtIf you don, you’re looking at a long one.
“A great skirt is something that can be worn in an accent,” Marzani says.
“It doesn’t have any styling options, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to go down or show off your legs.
A very formal dress or a very casual dress can be really flattering.”5.
The GirdlesIf you like to go with short hair, go with shorter, curly hair, says Marzlano.
“Short hair, especially with longer hair, has a lot more texture, so it’s a good option for a casual look,” Marzlani adds.
“Long hair can be too long for a dress, and short hair can come in a bit of a mess, so you want your short hair to be styled in a way that will get it to stay longer.
The longer the hair, the better.”6.
The MascaraFor the most part, you’ll be fine with the Mascaras.
“They can be very flattering,” says Cawdhons.
“And they’re not going to make your face look like you’re balding, so they’re also not going the way of the beard,” says D’Arcy.
“But the moustache is a great option for the casual wear.”7.
The BraidsFirst off: What do you like about braids?
“Braids can be styled for any length of hair,” says the professor.
“The length can be longer than the width of the hair and shorter than the length of the braids.
The braids can also be curled or brushed out or they can be layered.”8.
The DressingD’Arcys caresses her hair with a pair of scissors before the day starts.
“Just like any other hairstyle, it’s best to choose a style that’s comfortable for your hair, but not so comfortable that you have to cut your hair.”9.
The LipstickCawthons lipstick is a good choice for men and women.
“Women are very, very into lipstick, and men are very much into lipsticks,” she says.
And if you want more of a statement, try something like Mascari.
“What I really like about lipstick is that you can really do anything with it,” Cawds says.10.
Marzanes hair salon is located on West Third Street, which is just a block or two from the University.
The barber offers a variety of styles and treatments for the more formal clients.
You can also try out the more casual options, such as a hair removal, eyebrow lift, or manicure.
