About The Right Hairstyles

The story of The Right Hairstyles as an online magazine dedicated to all things hair started in 2013. Back then, we felt frustrated by the fact that hairstyle inspiration images would only feature celebrities who often have a team of experts to help them maintain the impeccable look and style intricate updos. Since that time, The Right Hairstyles has published over 1000 articles with handpicked haircut and hairstyle ideas that each of you can confidently bring to your stylist. We have also gathered a community of experts who share exclusive tips and guidelines to help you reach your hair goals.

Our mission is to help each of you experience the power of the right hairstyle to bring out your unique beauty, boost your confidence, and promote your ultimate self-expression.

We work towards our mission by

  • Creating an easy-to-navigate repository of trending haircut, hairstyle and hair color ideas

  • Sharing trustworthy guides on how to keep your hair healthy, accounting for its unique texture

  • Providing helpful how-to guides and tutorials on hair styling, hair care routines, and DIY hairstyles

  • Reporting on the latest news in the world of hair, including haircut and hair color trends and trending stories
