For many of us, our hair is one of the most important parts of our appearance. The way we wear our hair, from the colour and style to the accessories we choose, says a lot about us and our personality. However, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to styling it, particularly if work and family life takes up a lot of your time. Thankfully, getting out of that rut is simpler than you might think – all it takes is some courage and creativity! To help you out with at least one of those, here are four ideas for changes you can make to revitalise your hair.
Try out a new hairstyle or accessories
If you’re not feeling confident enough to make longer-term changes to your hair, such as cutting or dyeing it, a less intimidating place to start can be to switch up how you style your hair. For example, if you usually straighten it, try beach waves or a head of curls. If you have naturally wavy hair, reach for the straighteners. Similarly, if you usually wear your hair down then test out what you look like with a high ponytail, plaits or a bun. For those who wear their hair up most days, letting it flow loose can totally transform your appearance. Another easy trick to is to buy some new accessories to add a bit of sparkle or colour.
Go for length and volume with hair extensions
Many of us would love long, flowing Disney princess hair, but the majority of people are not born with such luscious locks. Luckily, there’s an easy solution to that these days in the shape of hair extensions. They can add length and volume to your hair in a very short time without inhibiting the growth of your own hair, and if you match them to your natural colour then no one will even be able to tell you’re wearing them. The best bit is that you can now buy them online from websites such as Hair2love and fit them yourself at home.
Add a splash of colour
One of the most dramatic ways you can breathe new life into your hair is by changing up its colour. There are so many options for this, whether you want to just lighten or darken your natural colour by a few shades, add highlights or lowlights, or go for a more unusual colour such as blue or purple. Again, this can be done professionally, at home or through adding hair extensions of a different colour and avoiding the dye bottle altogether.
Take the plunge with a daring new cut
For truly different look, head to the hairdressers and opt for a bold new cut. If there’s a particular style that you’ve always been tempted to try, have a chat with your stylist and see what suggestions they have. If you don’t want to do anything too crazy, there’s no need to cut all your hair off in a pixie cut! You could always start by having a fringe or layers put in and take it from there.
