Ever feel like your look is predictable or lacks excitement? While it is nice when our morning beauty routine can be done in under 30 minutes, especially when we’re guilty of hitting the snooze button once or twice (okay, four or five times) when our alarm starts blaring in the morning. After a while, the predictability can leave us feeling bored with our look.

Maybe your current hair situation is a little lacklustre, or you’re tired of wearing the same makeup look every day. Maybe you aren’t sure what style of clothing will look the best on you. There are so many different trends out there and everyone has their own ideas about which ones to follow, so sometimes we just need a little inspiration to give us new ideas to incorporate into our routine.

So, put down that eye shadow palette you’ve used every day for the last six months (don’t worry, we aren’t judging you!), grab a glass of wine and take some notes!

CHANGING YOUR HAIR IS ONE OF THE EASIEST AND MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS TO GIVE YOURSELF A MAKEOVER

One of the easiest and best ways to start an extreme makeover is to begin with your hair. The cut, colour and the way we style it has the ability to speak volumes about who we are as a person. Changing even one little detail can have an impact on our overall look. The ways to revive your hair and give it some wow factor seem to be endless. Experimenting with a new haircut can be exciting and fun! The purpose is to do something different, so don’t be afraid to try something new. If you have long hair and have been pinning cute medium or short length cuts to your Pinterest board, consider taking the plunge! Likewise, if you have had short hair forever but growing it out feels like a hassle or you want results now, extensions might be the way to go. Ask your stylist what they think will give you a flattering, fresh look.

CHANGE UP YOUR HAIR COLOUR

Changing up your hair colour can make you feel like a whole new woman. Always wanted to test out the age old adage, “blondes have more fun?” Well now is the perfect opportunity! Too much, too soon? Try lightening your hair in the summer and darkening it in the fall. There are so many different techniques out there that you wouldn’t have to go too crazy. Adding highlights or lowlights will give you great results without too much commitment. If you’re feeling especially adventurous, you could try pastel hair or oil slick hair to bring out your inner mermaid.

Complete your hair makeover with a new style or accessories Now that you have a new cut and colour, it’s time to think about how to style your hair to complete your hair makeover. An easy thing to try is switching the side you normally part your hair on. This has the ability to really change up your overall look, and you don’t have to commit to it long term. Normally wear your hair straight? Try curing it more often. Usually wear it down? Try an updo! If you normally wear your hair up around the office, try styling it in loose waves. You’re guaranteed to shock your co-workers when you saunter into the office in the morning. Go the extra mile with accessorise with cute headbands, bows or hair clips for an unexpected finished touch.
