Hair is a hugely important part of appearance, at least here in the United States. In fact, studies have found that up to 80% of all adult women (more than three quarters of them) have stated that hair and the appearance of their hair greatly shapes their appearance. Unfortunately, far too few women are actually happy with the overall appearance that their hair gives them and are therefore overall quite unhappy with their hair itself. As a matter of fact, more than 65% of all women have expressed being unhappy with their hair. Fortunately, there are ways to work around this.
For one thing, switching to a new hairstyle is something that can help to improve overall self confidence and even overall objective appearance. A hairstyle can do a lot, especially when it is tailored to highlight the features of the particular person in question. Hairstyles can help to slim faces, enhance large eyes, and overall create a more confident appearance for a person that had been lacking that self confidence. It’s no wonder, really, then, that the average woman living here in the United States is actually likely to change her overall appearance as many as a full 150 times over the course of her life.
But what can you do if you’re losing your hair? Unfortunately, hair loss is quite commonplace as well. As a matter of fact, up to 35 million men and an additional 20 million women will deal with hair loss at any given point in time. For many of these people, hair loss is quite devastating indeed. The data even backs this up completely, showing that more than 45% of all people actually would be willing to spend their entire life’s savings if it meant that they were once again able to have a full head of hair. And in addition to this, more than half of those who have lost hair (up to 60% of them, as a matter of fact) would easily trade in not only their money but also their friendships in order to get hair again.
Fortunately, there are ways in which hair loss can be mitigated or concealed – and often quite well, for that matter. For one thing, individual hair extensions can help to cover much of the poor appearance of thinning hair. Individual hair extensions are quite widely popular indeed, and these individual hair extensions are used by people – primarily women – all throughout the United States. As a matter of fact, more than 58 million women use hair extensions in the United States alone, including individual hair extensions. Aside from individual hair extensions, there are even more types of hair extensions out there. Wefted extensions are also popular, a form of non damaging extensions that can be found just about anywhere in the United States. In addition to these extensions and to individual hair extensions, hand tied extensions can also be found. And while the process of placing and securing either hand tied extensions or individual extensions can certainly be a lengthy one, it is a process that is more likely than not to have a hugely positive end result, to say the very least.
And individual hair extensions and the like are not just for those who are losing their hair. For one thing, individual hair extensions and other types of hair extensions can be used by people who are simply looking for a longer hairstyle – but for whom the painstaking process of growing out their hair is too much. After all, the average person’s hair will only grow around six inches per year (or around half of an inch per month). And for some people, hair will grow even more slowly than this. Therefore, individual extensions can help to create long hair where long hair does not naturally exists. For big formal events, such as something like a senior prom or even a wedding, individual hair extensions or other types of hair extensions can very much save the day and create a look.
At the end of the day, having self confidence in your hair is a hugely important thing indeed. For the vast majority of people, self confidence in hair will improve self confidence in entire appearance.
