Every now and then, keeping the same hairstyle tends to become monotonous and we like to change it up a bit. There are so many variations as to what hair style you could choose. From dying your hair, to adding strands of vibrant color, to highlights, to haircuts of various styles, there are so many different options to choose from.
Deciding on what style is right for you is sometimes easy. Other times, it’s not as easy as we would have hoped it would be. There are many websites dedicated to providing you with a new look, or general ideas of new looks. There are also many books and magazines at salons, which are usually kept up to date with the current trends. Sometimes, asking your hair stylist what they think is right for you works. This is risky business, though, considering the style they might like may be something you completely despise.
Aside from choosing a style you want, you can also attend hair shows, where you can volunteer as a hair model and have your hair cut, colored, and styled in a completely new and often times shocking look – something to think about for the more daring souls.
Finding a New Color
Finding a color that’s right for you is usually done based upon your skin tone. Certain colors may not look good on those of lighter or darker skin tones, and sometimes can make you look washed out. Choosing something that meshes well with your eye color, taking your features into consideration (i.e. freckles) is usually helpful establishing the right color choice for you. When in doubt, get a professional opinion before making the big decision to make a color change – especially if it’s something completely different than what your natural color actually is.
Finding a Cut That Fits
Sometimes, all it takes to give your hair a fresh new look is a new style or cut. Finding a cut that works for you should be based around the shape of your face, and your weight. These should be taken into consideration as well as what you actually want out of your hair style. If you choose a style that is difficult to maintain and you are always short on time, most likely you are going to hate the style because you can never make it look just right. Choose something that fits your lifestyle, and provides you with the level of design and difficulty suited to your time budget.
Sometimes, doing something as simple as adding some bangs can give you a whole new look. There are many different kinds of bangs to choose from, such as:
- Baby bangs
- Side swept bangs
- Straight cut bangs
- Razor cut bangs
- Thick cut bangs
- Angled bangs
Aside from getting some new bangs, perhaps adding a splash of color to them could also incorporate a new look. You could opt for a chunky highlight, or strands of a vibrant color such as blue or pink, to give your hair the ‘oomph’ you crave, all while not doing too much in terms of change.
All in all, a new hair style is a sure fire way to give you a fresh new look, without breaking the bank and consuming too much time.
