Want to spruce up your look? I know sometimes get bored with mine, too. Here are a few ways to go from “blah” to “tada!”.

 1. Go short for the day! Pin the ends of your hair under to create a fake bob. I love this idea! Because I have long hair, creating an illusion that I have short hair would be really neat. This is also a great way to keep the hair off your neck if it is hot outside. It can also be a very romantic-looking hairstyle if you leave a few whispy pieces of hair out and then loosely curl them.

2. Try bangs! But try clip in bangs before you totally commit to them. You want to try clip-on bangs before cutting your hair so that you know whether bangs will look good on you or not! Hair takes a LONG time to grow back, so you don’t want to cut it and then hate it! If you have bangs and you don’t like them, you have a few options on how to hide them. One option is to pull them back into a French braid. The next is to split them down the middle and pin each half, letting the rest of your hair fall over them. 


3. Don’t have time to wash your hair? Try a waterfall braid, which works better on dirty hair anyway. Want to spruce up your braid? Weave a ribbon into your braid. Black looks chic, while bright colors pop. Another great braid is the headband braid, which holds your hair back away from your face.
