Better Hair Boosts Confidence

Do you feel better during a good hair day? According to a new survey from Sexy Hair, 77 percent of women don’t feel like themselves when they are having a bad hair day. More than 1 in 4 women reported that making sure their hair looks good as their biggest concern when making a good impression, second only to finding the perfect outfit. 42 percent of women say a sexy hair day is the thing that would give them a confidence boost, beating a sexy outfit, a fresh manicure and even new shoes. "When women are feeling good about themselves, that confidence pours over into every part of their day," says Sexy Hair artistic creative director Rafe Hardy.

The survey also revealed that women are most likely to experiment with their hair when they feel comfortable in their environments as opposed to during a first encounter. It’s actually during job interviews that women are most concerned with making a good first hair impression, with nearly half (46 percent) more concerned about how their hair looks during interviews than during first dates. Hardy recommends practicing new styles on the weekends or for work. Being in a comfortable environment will make it easier to try daring looks you might not be ready to pull off on a first date or big event. Plus, compliments from your coworkers can give you the confidence boost needed to pull it off on that big event coming up.
