  • To pick the best hairstyles for yourself, take inspiration from celebs who have a similar face shape, skin tone, and hair texture as yours.
  • Invest in heat protectants and hydrating serums to ensure that heat styling does not damage your hair.
  • For hair color makeovers, use color-protecting products and avoid heat exposure. If you get your hair bleached, a purple shampoo is a must to balance out brassy undertones to maintain the color.
  • For straight and wavy hair, limit heat styling to once a week. For curly and coily hair, use heat only once every few months.
  • Visit a skilled professional for elaborate hairstyles and take reference pictures of the style you want. Make careful note of their post-care instructions.
