Have you thought about the type of hairstyle that suits you? Perhaps you haven’t paid much attention to why you like a certain appearance as opposed to others. It may have to do with your Enneagram type. Are you ready to find out what type of hairstyle suits you based on your type? Let’s find out.
Type 1 – The Reformer – The objective of this type is to follow the rules and to attain ‘perfection’ even though that is not possible. Therefore, the hairstyle of the Reformer would be clean-cut, both for men and for women. Nothing out of the ordinary. Just styles that are neat and clean. If you are the Reformer, would you agree with this?
Type 2 – The Helper – Those who have this type are known to be caregivers and be the ones to help people out. Women of this type may often put their hair up in a ponytail or bun as they would not want their hair to get into the way while helping others out physically if they must. Men of this type may not care for the clean-cut look as the Reformer would. But if they decide to grow their hair, they would also keep their hair tied up. If this is your type, how would you style your hair?
Type 3 – The Achiever – This type wants to be known as the top dog or the best of their kind. Therefore, they will keep up with the latest and trendiest hairstyles and will go for that. Therefore, the type of hairstyle that they prefer one year will not be the same for another. It all depends on what is trending. What do you think of that?
Type 4 – The Individualist – This type wants to stand out and be unique. They may prefer to have wild styles, their hair dyed with colors that are not natural, or they may tend to go with styles that are no longer a thing. Therefore, if you see someone that has a perm or crimped hair which is not in style right now, it may be the Individualist. If this is your type, do you see yourself doing this?
Type 5 – The Observer – This type only cares about gaining knowledge and staying private. Hairstyles are not important to them. Therefore, they really don’t have a preference. If you are The Observer, would you say this is true?
Type 6 – The Loyal Cynic – This type wants reassurance and security. They are more concerned about having clean hair than having it styled in a certain way. If this is your type, would you also only use the shampoo that is natural and made with ingredients that are trustworthy?
Type 7 – The Enthusiast – This is the wild type that wants to have something to look forward to each day. They will go for the wildest hairstyles whether they are trending or not. Some may like dyed hair, dreadlocks, or anything else that is vibrant and exciting. If you are the Enthusiast, would you go with something that is wild?
Type 8 – The Challenger – This is the bold type and whatever hairstyles make a bold statement, then this is what they would gravitate towards. Men often purposely shave their heads that have this type as well. Is this your type or do you know of someone who has this personality type? Does this ring true for you?
Type 9 – The Peacemaker – This is the type that just wants peace and wants to please others. They may go for trendy hairstyles if it makes others happy. If you are the Peacemaker and if someone had told you that they prefer you with a certain style, would you go for that?
What hairstyles do you like the most, and what is your type?
I’m an 8 and I cut my own hair because control (and dry hair only, because control). I watched every haircut I ever got in my life, learned what not to do from the bad ones, and then supplemented that knowledge with YouTube tutorials. I can do bangs, layers, choppy parts, etc. and if I mess up, I don’t have to seethe with rage that some other person botched my hairstyle.
