    Updating To a New Hairstyle

    New Hairstyle

    Still Look Like Your High School Year Book Picture?

    Updating to a new hairstyle does not have to involve a complicated drastic change or spending a week’s salary on a total makeover. By making a few simple hairstyle changes, it can appear as if you’ve made a major transformational update to your overall appearance. Start with subtle changes, do you really like your current hairstyle, but get bored with it from time to time? Here are a few simple things to try:

    New Hairstyle

    Try some Extensions

    If you’re thinking about changing your hair color, why not opt to add highlighted hair extensions for a quick and easy temporary new hairstyle update? The easiest pieces come already sewn onto clips, ready to be placed anywhere you see fit.

    I’m not one who cares about sewing, but if you don’t mind a little bit of stitching, you can spend even less on wefts of hair that can be cut and sewn onto clips. Sally’s Beauty Supply has a variety of hair extensions available and I find normally their staff is well educated and helpful with questions you might have.

    Try Some Bangs

    Bangs are the most versatile tool in your arsenal. If you can’t style your existing hair into bangs, don’t forget there are plenty of inexpensive bang extensions. Most likely your hairdresser has some in stock that can be customized and colored to perfectly match your existing color. We’ve got dozens of hot looks on our Beautiful Bangs and Fringe Pinterest Board check them out.

    Changing Texture

    Or, how about simply changing the texture of your hair? If your hair is normally straight, try setting your hair on hot rollers for added volume and body. This type of hairstyle requires some products if you want it to hold for any considerable amount of time.

    For lift, I like Sexy Hair Root Pump and for good holding power, one product I use on lots of clients lately is, Kenra Volume Spray 25. That’s my new hair styling elixir!

    If you want to change your wavy or curly hair, don’t under-estimate the power of the flat iron. I know some hair style magazine guru’s have been trying to tell you the flat iron is flat out these days, but, don’t believe everything you read!! All you need do is take a look at what hairstyles the celebs are wearing at their latest soirees.

    Go ahead, take the plunge! If you haven’t already invested in a good ceramic flat iron, now is probably a good time. If you want to shop online, Folica has good prices and great reviews to help in your choice of hair styling tools.

    Change Your Part

    Try experimenting with a different part. Center parts are really hot right now and if you want to be really on the cutting edge try a deep side part and a slicked back look.

    New Hairstyle


    By simply adding hair accessories such as headbands, butterfly clips, barrettes or gem studded bobby pins to mention just a few, you can make a boring hairstyle lots more fun and seem like you’ve got a brand new hairstyle.

    Headbands come in a variety of colors, shapes and textures and can be worn with just about any hairstyle. Use that creative right side of your brain to change it up a bit. You’ll have a new look in no time and the beauty of it is . . . it’s temporary, no worries of snipping hair off that you wished you hadn’t!!

    Hair Imaging Programs

    There are many hair imaging software programs that will allow you to download your picture and match your face with a variety of cuts, colors and hairstyles. By utilizing these programs, it can save you a lot of time, money and unnecessary effort. By choosing subtle and temporary changes to your hair, it will give you a visual of what to expect before you dive in and make a full commitment to updating to a brand new hairstyle.
