When the temperatures soar during the hot summer months, we may feel inclined towards chopping off our hair in order to keep cool. Is the summertime the perfect time to try out that Pixie look you’ve been contemplating? Perhaps, come June, you should trade your long tresses for a modern lob. Marshall’s take on this subject is quite the opposite.
According to Marshall, a surefire method for choosing the length of your hairstyle is to base it on the fashion of the season. The same outlook can be applied to choosing the right hair color. (Read more about choosing your color here)
In the summer, our wardrobes lighten up in many ways. We wear thinner fabrics and show more skin. Bare arms, shorter hemlines, exposed shoulders, and glimpses of midriff exude an air of freedom. This leaves room for long flowing hair; a gorgeous mane to frame that gorgeous figure. Your hair could be your best accessory. A glimpse of Alessandra, Adriana, or Taylor on the Victoria’s Secret runway is proof that long hair is the perfect complement to minimal clothing.
In the winter, fashion is a bit heavier. We cover ourselves in turtlenecks, heavy knits, scarves, and warm outerwear. Piling on layers can camouflage your figure; and the benefit of shorter hair is that it brings focus to your face. Also, in a sea of darker winter hues lighter hair color can highlight the best features of your face.

From an evolutionary perspective, our hair provides protection and warmth to our bodies. But above all, Marshall’s standpoint is that we should all choose the hairstyles that make us look the most beautiful season after season.
