13 Easy Ways To Change Up Your Hair If You Want To Freshen Up Your Look
With winter still lingering around, I’m getting seriously tired of my standard “shove all hair into beanie and brave the snow” routine. If you’re also feeling all kinds of in a style rut this season, I’ve scouted out tons of easy ways to change up your hair. Whether you have a first time pixie cut like me, or locks that reach down past your hips, you’re bound to find some inspiration to help revitalize your look. Just because spring isn’t exactly around the corner doesn’t mean you can’t add a little oomph to your style!
I want to stop and reiterate to the short-haired ladies out there that changing up your hairstyle is easier than you think. After getting my pixie cut, I felt really limited about styling it until I started snooping around on the internet for new ways to shake it up. Thanks to celebrities like Clare Bowen, Tavi Gevinson, and Jessie J, I learned not to limit myself and be willing to fearlessly try things out. I mean, worst case you just take a shower and start over or pop a beanie over it anyway, right? Right.
