Next time you take a trip to the hairdresser’s, think long and hard. Because actually, your hairstyle says a lot more about you than you think…
Hairstylist to the stars Asgar Saboo is here to tell you exactly what your locks say about your personality. Over to you, Asgar!
1. Tumbling waves
‘While many women choose to straighten their curls, choosing to go natural and show off natural body and texture suggests that you’re not afraid to be in the limelight and prefer a more natural, laid-back style’, Saboo says. ‘Curls are particularly suitable for boho fashion, but they also work well with dramatic silhouettes. Having curls isn’t always fun as this hair requires extra conditioning, so make sure you use a hair masque each week and work an oil or curl cream through the hair after each wash.’
2. Fiery red hair
‘It’s often suggested that redheads have a fiery personality, so this hair colour will make you seem fun, full of passion and with a zest for life’, he says. ‘If it’s your first time moving into the red hair family then go for a subtle colour, or dare to go bold with a luscious, bright tone.’
3. Short chop
‘A short hairstyle is the perfect balance between sophisticated and daring, which will show the world that you like to have a unique look but appreciate classic icons of the past like Mia Farrow and Audrey Hepburn’, says Asgar. ‘A short haircut shows you’re not afraid to take a risk, which is why Emma Watson chose this style after she had finished work on the last Harry Potter film. I also like a longer bob look on a woman, as seen on Margot Robbie, which shows that you like to feel glamourous but young and fresh, since it can be so modern if you go for a choppy cut.’

4. Polished, high ponytail
‘This is a style favoured by the likes of Kim Kardashian, and suggests a different personality to your regular pony style – this one says to the world that you’re organised, professional and want to be taken seriously’, he says. ‘This is why it’s perfect for the office and important meetings, showing off your ambition and a level of perfectionism.

5. Peroxide blonde
‘From Gwen Stefani to Marilyn Monroe, there’s a reason why women choose to colour the hair a shocking shade of blonde – it shows that you’re a confident person, like to turn heads and enjoy attention’, says Asgar. ‘It’s often seen as the ultimate symbol of femininity and indicates that you have a glamourous side, but women also go for a dramatic shade to mark a new chapter in their life, such as when Kim went blonde after the birth of her daughter. Be prepared for the maintenance, as you’ll need to use a purple shampoo and good hair treatment at least once a week to maintain this look.’
