Hair plays an important role in how we see ourselves. On the surface, it may seem like your hair only impacts your appearance. But it’s more than that. It’s your sense of self and a form of self-expression. So it makes sense that your hairstyle or haircut says a lot about your personality. Keep reading to find out what your hair could be saying about you.

If you have long hair but you’re always rocking a topknot or messy ponytail, you’re probably very busy. Maybe you’re starting your own business or you’re busy chasing after kids all day. Whatever you’re up to, you’re definitely too busy to worry about doing your hair every day! But you also like to “let your hair down,” give your hair some style, and have fun every once and awhile. This is a “work hard, play hard” kind of hairstyle.

Redheads Have More Fun

Move aside, blondes! Red hair can signal a fun-loving personality. Red hair catches the eye, so redheads often have a great sense of humor and like to be the center of attention.

Wash-and-Go Haircuts Mean Pragmatism & Ambition

If you keep your hair simple with a wash-and-go, you’re more likely to be a practical, logical thinker. You’re serious about achieving your goals, and don’t want to spend too much time fussing with your hair in the morning. You’re also confident about your looks, since wash-and-go cuts embrace natural hair textures.

High-Maintenance Hair Means You’re Detail-Oriented

On the other hand, if it takes you a long time to style your hair in the morning, you may be more detail-oriented. You care about the little things, which is why you make sure that every strand is in place before you head out the door! You’re probably also very organized and keep a detailed to-do list.

Short Hair Indicates Confidence

A cropped haircut like a pixie cut is a sign of strength and confidence. While long hair is typically associated with femininity, short hair shrugs off those traditional gender norms, and displays a bold and fearless attitude. Short hair usually requires less maintenance than longer hairstyles, which indicates that you’re more pragmatic.

Long Hair is Associated with Youth

Fair or not, we typically associate long (not to mention thick and shiny) hair with youth. But with age, most women’s hair changes, becoming thinner, drier, duller, grayer, or some combination of all of the above. But if you loved your hair in your teens and 20s, you can wear your hair long at any age. In fact, having long, shiny, bouncy hair will show the world that you’re young at heart. Long hair also is often associated with creativity and spirituality.

But as we age into our late 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond, almost all of us will see changes in our hair. If you thought you had to choose a short haircut as you aged, but longer hair is really more your style, try Viviscal Hair Growth Supplements. Viviscal is the #1 clinically proven hair growth supplement in the U.S. Viviscal works by nourishing your hair follicles from the inside, promoting thicker, fuller hair growth and less shedding in 3-6 months. The key is the collagen complex, AminoMar™, a proprietary ingredient not found in any other supplements, which is blended with proven hair-loving vitamins and minerals. With just two tablets a day, it can help you get back to the thicker, fuller, healthier-looking hair you love so you can feel like yourself again.*

Gray Shows Security

Women who choose to let their hair go gray or stay gray demonstrate a certain sense of security with their appearance. They seem more comfortable in their own skin. After all, going gray is totally natural and something we’ll all do at some point. So why not embrace the inevitable? But since many women choose to cover their gray roots, having gray hair also shows that you’re unconventional and march to the beat of your own drum.

Vibrant Colors Signal Rebelliousness

Dyeing your hair unnatural colors like pink, blue, or green indicates a rebellious spirit. Although vibrant-colored hair has become trendier and more commonplace, it’s certainly still a statement! So those who dye their hair rainbow colors are also comfortable receiving attention from others.

But remember: there are no real rules when it comes to hair and self-expression. If you want to wear your hair a certain way, we say go for it!
