Improving Your Personal Appearance

How much time do you put into the way you look every day? While this number is different for everyone, investing some time into your appearance can really help you to go out into the world more confidently and feel better about yourself. I started going to spas and salons a few months back, and it was really nifty to see how many services they offered that could really improve my life. I decided that it would be incredible to work with other people to teach them about spas and salons, since they can make you feel renewed and refreshed.

Extra Barber Services Can Keep Your Look Fresh

If you're like most men, you go to the barber to have your hair cut, and perhaps to have your beard trimmed. You're in there for about 20 minutes, at most, and you leave feeling confident and well-groomed. Within days, though, the excitement of a new haircut dies down, and you're left feeling less stylish again. If you're looking for a solution to this problem, then consider having one or more of these services performed the next time you're at the barber. These services keep your look fresh and modern. 


Balayage is often thought of as being just for women. It is a hair highlighting technique that involves sweeping and brushing the color into the hair, which results in it looking more blended and natural. Even if you've never considered the idea of coloring your hair before, you should consider a little balayage. A small amount of color or some highlights worked into the ends of your hair can draw more attention to your hairstyle, balance out your look, and give your hair some dimension. The color is never applied to your roots, so as your hair grows out, you don't get the root line that makes it obvious you dyed your hair.

Facial Profiling

Have you ever had someone analyze your face shape? This is something many barbers can do. You may learn that you have a round face or an oval face. It's not always what you would expect, as the shape is based more on the relative placement of your eyes, nose, and mouth than on the size of your cheeks and forehead. Once you have your face profiled, your barber can recommend a hairstyle that complements your face shape. This will make your whole look appear more balanced, so you'll keep smiling each time you look in the mirror.

Hairline Threading

If you feel like your cut stops looking fresh after a few days, it could be because your hairline is uneven. As the hair grows out, even a little, this becomes more obvious. One solution is to ask your barber to thread your hairline. They'll use two threads to remove excess, out-of-place hairs along the hairline. With a straight and even hairline, you'll get more life out of a haircut.

Talk to your barber about these services. Not all barbers offer them, but if your barber does, then these services are well worth investing in and will really boost your confidence.
