How do you figure out what hairdo will suit?

I've grown my hair out of sheer laziness, I'm not colouring it so couldn't be bothered with the hairdressers apart from a bi-annual trim.

Hair's a nice dark brown, very shiny. But, it's started to thin, not a lot, but, enough for me to have a wider parting than previously.

Time for a change, and I may as well crop it so I can donate the leftovers.

But, how do you know what will suit you? I've looked on pinterest and can't see any suggestions for someone in their mid 40s with great bone structure hidden under 4 stones of fat.

Where does one start?

Not an answer to your actual question, but the beauty of brown hair is that you can fill your parting in with brown eyeshadow and make your hair look loads thicker and fuller.

I finally found my perfect haircut when I found a hairdresser who sat down and asked me about my life before talking about a hair cut. We agreed I wanted no low maintenance styling and a cut that would look good as I grew it out as I couldn't do frequent trims. Haircut was amazing <swishes hair>

But I literally found her due to good luck tbh. And I'm quite aware this isn't a very helpful post in the specifics. hmm

Sorry blush

Depends how you like to wear your hair I think. For example I never wear mine down so go for a simple just below shoulder trim with a little side fringe. It's easy for me to do different up styles with.

If I was wearing it down I'd want something that frames my face, maybe some layers. It's worth asking f around for a really trusted hairdresser and asking them their opinion.

Thanks, folks, will start asking around for a trusted hairdresser! Good idea.
