SO YOURE SINGLE. SHOULD YOU CHANGE YOUR HAIR? Get Anthony’s new life tips seen THE JOURNAL

mane life: so you’re single, should you change your hair?

It’s been said that a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.

In a world of high social visibility and excessive over-sharing… it’s a concept that’s seemed to stick. You need only look at the throng of post break-up celebrity hair makeovers to see the glossed-up evidence.

Let’s be honest, we’ve all been there.

One moment you’re caught up in rose-filtered bliss and the next you find yourself unconsciously (or consciously) un-coupled; the solo-wedding guest with a gushing plus-one-sized hole that even Ben & Jerry’s can’t fix.

Trust us, we’ve tried.

While a status change can spell an array of adjustments (from new living arrangements through to co-pet-parenting) there’s no reason it can’t mark a bright new beginning, and as such you may even find yourself empowered by a subtle appearance tweak.

Enter the Break-Up Haircut, an age old salve for broken hearts.

Not limited to those of the single persuasion, it’s a concept that applies to a range of situations – whether you’re in the midst of a career change, feeling sartorially sluggish or just in need of a reboot.

After all, there’s more to hair than meets the eye.

Science tells us that it’s not only a key determinant of an individual’s physical attractiveness, but moreover a huge part of one’s sense of self in society; an attribute that when changed can have a massive impact – for better for for worse.

Your crowning glory, as it were.

But before you run for the scissors or box dye (editor’s note: never, ever run for the box dye), scroll down to hear what celebrity hairdresser and owner of RAW salon Anthony Nader had to say on the matter.

“Hair is such a massive part of your personality and a good cut can increase your confidence and wellbeing,” shares Anthony. “It’s your trademark, your signature and a big part of the way your friends, family and (new partner?) see you.”

According to Anthony, the main reasons people opt for a style or colour change post break-up are to make a clean start, to lose some of that excess emotional baggage or to exact revenge on their former beau (we see you Khloe).

How’s that for a break-over?

Anthony’s advice for those looking to make a dramatic mane change (and avoid ‘cutter’s remorse’) is to be realistic; “If you’ve spotted a celeb with your future #hairgoals, you need to remember they most likely have a full-time stylist… will you?”

Next up, financial feasibility: “For big chops, the shorter your hair, the more visits you’ll need to your hairdresser for maintenance. This means going shorter may cost you more $$$ in the long run as opposed to a longer, flowing mane.”

“You need to budget for the change and assess the pros and cons of a new look, so there’s no hidden surprises,” he continues. “Oftentimes blow-drying and tonging will be required to maintain the shape you’re after.”

As for Anthony’s considerations? “Face shape, hair texture and lifestyle… these are just a few of the elements I need to consider before giving someone a distressed Miley Mullet or Bella Bob.”

In this, or any scenario: “Communication is always key,” says Anthony. “Don’t be afraid to say ‘no’ to something if you’re guts calling for it!”

The final word: While cutting your hair might not change your relationship status (or quash the flood of introspection), there’s something uplifting, even transformative about a seasonal refresh.

As with any life altering event, it’s important you take time to process; to sift through the emotional turmoil and assess the learning in the loss. And if you can look a little better while doing that – that’s a win in our books.

After all it will grow back. Britney’s did.

After all, there is something exciting about bidding adieu to your worn-out summer cut in favour of a brand-new ‘do—a miniature renaissance, if you will—courtesy of your hairdresser.

THE BIGGEST HAIRCUT & STYLE TRENDS FOR AUTUMN/WINTER 2020

Ready to switch up your strands? From this season’s ‘It’ bobs to the return (and revamp) of the fringe, keep scrolling (and prepare to screenshot) the top hairstyles of autumn/winter 2020.
**THE MODERN SHAG**<br><br> **Joey Scandizzo, Co-Creative Director of [ELEVEN Australia](https://elevenaustralia.com/|target="_blank"|rel="nofollow"):**<br><br> "The [modern shag](https://www.harpersbazaar.com.au/beauty/shag-haircut-2019-18624|target="_blank") is making a big comeback in 2020. We're going to see more lived-in, shaggy crops across straight, wavy and curly hair this season. The inspiration comes from a mix of '70s icon Farrah Fawcett's feathered hair, as well as a graduated shag finish, to give it a bit of a Joan Jett's rock'n'roll style. To get the look, ask your stylist for long layers that start at the top and work their way down, but don't thin your hair out too much, the strength in the shape comes from keeping the ends blunt and exterior strong."<br><br> *Image via [@edenfines](https://www.instagram.com/edenfines/|target="_blank"|rel="nofollow")*

WANTING MILEY CRYRUS NEW MULLET HAIRCUT? Anthony gives his cut to if its going to work for your face shape. Seen Body + Soul

Miley Cyrus is bringing back the mullet for 2020 and we’re into it

The 27-year-old singer is putting a new spin on the ‘shag’ and taking cues from her dad.

Sure, a new year means a new haircut and Miley Cyrus is leading the celeb-hair-trend charge with her take on the modern mullet. Or her take on her dad’s famous hairstyle from the 90’s that he lovingly dubbed his ‘Kentucky Waterfall.’ *Google’s Billy Ray circa 1990’s.*

The woman responsible for Miley’s new hair transformation is hairstylist Sally Herschberger, she told Refinery29, “it’s a very fashion-forward, yet no-fuss look.” Which does makes sense – a shoulder-grazing crop is super easy to wear and style and her fringe is at a length that can evolve into curtain bangs or be pinned back.

Plus the grown-out roots make for a super stylish way to skip your colour appointment if the holiday period got the best of your wallet.

When the singer was in the chair Herschberger focused on the texture of the cut, explaining; “I used a razor to slice [the hair] into a shag. To style it, we did a rough dry and then I used a shaping balm and dry oil to finish off the piecey look.”

Want to try the chop for yourself? We asked Sydney-based celebrity hairstylist and owner of RAW Salon Anthony Nader for his thoughts and he had some wise words of wisdom for us before we think about taking the leap. “This isn’t for everyone,” he says. “I’ve been hairdressing for 30 years so, and I’ve seen quite a few different versions and shapes of this iconic cut. You have to own this look and be confident.”

The next big thing to take into consideration is your face shape. “The most perfect face shape for this cut is oval as the symmetry is perfectly proportioned,” explains Anthony. “If you have a square jawline this won’t do you any favours because your face won’t appear delicate and soft due to the trimmed back hair above the ears. Softer and more curved face shapes will be in your favour compared to angular facial features.”

Business in the front, party in the back, forever.

The Top 4 Fringe Trends To Try This Winter

While the thought of winter tends to inspire more ‘curling up’ than ‘dressing up’, it’s actually the perfect time to experiment with your look, especially when it comes to trialling a fringe.
After all, with summer comes humidity, leaving our locks limp or frizzy. Our efforts with the straightener end up moot, and all we want to do is get our hair off our face and sweat-drenched neck. On the other hand, the colder season actually gives your fringe a fighting chance and lets you see whether you truly like the look. And luckily for us, this season’s crop of fringes are well worth trying.
In order to find out how to style the fringes leading the way in winter 2019, we consulted leading Sydney hairstylist Anthony Nader of Raw Salon.

1. THE MID-LENGTH ‘BLUNT’ FRINGE

The blunt fringe has always been one of the more dramatic styles but this season’s leading style offers a slightly softer mid-length finish.
“I tend to keep the edges of the fringe curved a little lower rather than perfectly horizontal all the way across, as this frames the face beautifully rather than a hard edge, which tends to make the forehead look disconnected from the rest of the face,” says Nader.
“For those of you with petite faces and sharp features, be sure not to take the fringe too blunt, as this is only going to make your features look more angular and harsh.”

2. THE MICRO FRINGE

A tough look to wear and not for the faint of heart, Nader emphasises that this look is best suited to those with oval face shapes.
“I wouldn’t cut the the micro fringe or on face shapes that are too small and round, as this is only going to emphasise the roundness of your face more,” he explains.
“Longer face shapes suit this cut much more. What I tend to do is make the edge of the baby fringe a touch longer on the corners when cutting, as this adds more shape to the face – the ideal shape to attain is oval.”
To give this look a more effortless finish, Nader recommends having your hairdresser cut your micro fringe with a razor.
“This adds more softness and it’s a little bit more fashion-forward, rather than cutting with scissors which can leave a harsher, solid line,” he says.

3. THE CURLY FRINGE

While old school thinking used to discourage those with curls from cutting a fringe because it was thought to mean constant styling, that is no longer the case in 2019. In fact, all that matters now when it comes to achieving this stylishly dishevelled look is how your hairdresser cuts it, Nader explains.
“Personally when I’m cutting a curly fringe, I always cut it DRY. [The ] reason being is that if you cut it wet, you’re always going to underestimate how much it will jump up when it dries. In this case, the fringe will end up a lot shorter than you anticipated—and you may end up looking like you’re off to kindergarten,” Nader tells ELLE.
The key to working a curly fringe on the daily without all the fuss? Nailing the length.
“I’d lean more toward keeping a curly fringe on the longer side in length. [This] tends to lend itself more to a sensual, carefree vibe and it really doesn’t look like it’s just freshly cut. Keep it overgrown and tousled, just below the brows,” says Nader.

4. THE CURTAIN FRINGE

A classic look popularised by French film icon Brigitte Bardot, the curtain fringe is one of the most versatile styles out there. It can be parted in the middle or swept to the side, and depending on preference, can skew shorter towards the centre and longer as it moves further out along the hairline, or kept all fairly similar in length.
“I still think that the curtain fringe is the number one look I am asked for, simply because you see a lot of celebrities with various lengths of a curtain fringe, effortlessly styled to look super cool but sexy at the same time,” says Nader.
“The thing that I love about the curtain fringe is that when it’s cut right, it automatically looks worn-in and soft. [This is] because, when playing with fringes, there’s a very fine line in the way that it’s cut, where it can either look French-girl-chic or unfortunately as though you you’ve cut your hair in the bathroom with a pair of blunt scissors.”
A great look to trial in winter and take into summer, this fringe looks relaxed and elegant even as it grows out. And the best part about it? It suits everyone.
“Another thing I love about the curtain fringe is that its suitable for literally every face shape, depending how the hairdresser lines up the shape of the ‘curtain’, so to speak,” says Nader.
