Did you know that humans have been styling and cutting their hair for about as long as humans have existed with hair on their heads? There are 30,000-year-old depictions of hair being braided. A statue called the Venus of Willendorf depicts a female figure with braided hair and it's believed to date to that time. Another 25,000-year-old statue shows even more obviously styled hair. So salons have been in business for quite a while. That means even our most ancient of ancestors realized there was some benefit to doing something with their hair beyond letting it grow down to the floor and collect burrs and twigs and whatnot.
Choosing the right haircut is not always the simplest job. You may need to consider a few things. What length are you most comfortable with versus what length works best for your face and your har. Some of us go straight while some get very curly. Sometimes caring for long hair is just too much of a hassle so it's better to go short. And sometimes you start losing your hair so you need to make adjustments for that, too. Hair - it's a little crazy. So the question is, does your haircut actually look good? We have one way to find out! Take the quiz and see!
