We’ve all been there. We look into the mirror and feel the sudden urge to change something about the way we look, especially our hair. Boring haircut. Dull colour. Are you in a hair rut? We’ve all fantasized about making a drastic change to our appearance. So why not go for it? You’re probably not going to do it when you’re 70, so now is the time.
If you’re bored of your hair and want to breathe some life into your look, let me give you some inspiration…
- Choose an unusual colour. I’m not talking red; I’m talking blue, purple or pink. If you want to make a less permanent change, you can simply opt for hair chalk, which is hugely popular at the moment. Simply putting in a streak of colour is also an option if you’re going for a quieter look.
- Go short. I know long, flowing hair is nice, but short hair can give you a really awesome edgy look and will make you stand out. Of course you should check if short hair suits your face shape and features, but generally speaking it’s definitely something worth considering.
- Get a perm. Ok, don’t freak out- I know you’re thinking “no way”, but a lot has changed since the 80s. There are lots of different options out there these days and they don’t all make you look like a poodle.
If you’re planning to make a drastic change to your hair, you should definitely make sure you have thought it through. While a horrible colour can be corrected, short hair will not grow back in a day. And also make sure your new hairstyle works for you and your lifestyle (also think about your work or school situation).
