About This Quiz

There’s a lot to consider when getting a new haircut! You have to think about your face shape, your lifestyle, your commitment to maintenance, your personality, and an endless list of other hairy demands that can quickly get confusing. While some have a trusted stylist they can depend on to guide them to a style that rocks, most of us see something in a magazine and try it out without thinking until it’s too late. A stylist can only do what you tell them! Yes, it grows back, but there’s never a reason to get a haircut that’s less than ideal.

To make sure you get the best cut for you, there are a couple of things you should do. Before you take your next visit to the salon, make sure you pause for a minute to think about what you really want. Do you want to completely change yourself, or just go for a little trim? Are you feeling a California, beach wave vibe, or are you looking for something more New York and edgy? After you’re done asking yourself the deep, existential stuff, you should take this quiz! You’ll never come home and cover it up with a hat again!
