A new season is upon us, and what better time to revamp your image and give your confidence a boost? In this guide, we’ll explore some easy options to consider if you fancy a change.
Book a consultation with your hairstylist
Have you ever wondered what would happen to you if you were on a TV makeover show or you let your stylist have free rein? Many of us get used to the same cut or color and we go for the safe option, even if we’re tempted to try something new.
If you’re looking to refresh your image or you’re feeling brave, why not book a consultation with an experienced stylist and go through some ideas? You may find that your hairdresser recommends a different length or shape, or that they think you’d look great with a brighter color or some highlights, for example. You don’t have to do anything drastic. Even subtle changes can make a big difference.
Update your wardrobe
It’s easy to get stuck in a style rut. If you’re bored of your clothes, or you always throw on the same accessories every time you go out, now is the time to update your wardrobe and embrace the art of accessorizing to create diverse looks.
Add some on-trend pieces to seasonal staples to design a fashionable, functional capsule wardrobe and try to have fun with putting outfits together. Choose items that you love, rather than trends you feel like you have to follow, and customize your outfits using details, such as shoes, jewelry, sunglasses, bags and scarves.
From curved barbell jewelry and stacking rings for an edgy, urban look to crossbody straw bags, anklets and bracelets for a boho vibe, you can switch up your accessories to match your clothing and dress for different occasions.
If you struggle to find clothes that suit you, or you always choose the same items, explore different stores and websites, look for inspiration from blogs, magazines and social media and don’t be afraid to try pieces you would normally only admire from afar.
Refresh your makeup bag
It’s natural to have favorite products, but if you wear the same makeup day in, day out, why not consider a reset? Makeup can enhance your features and make you feel more confident, and it can also help you express yourself and show off your personality. Experiment with new trends, be a little bolder than normal if you’re going out and try out different looks.
There’s nothing wrong with a 5-minute natural look for work, but if you’ve got a date, you’re meeting up with friends or you’re going to a party or a wedding, why not inject a bit of color with lipstick or draw attention to your eyes with a feline flick or a pop of bright eyeshadow?
Many of us go through stages where we feel like we’re in a rut and we fancy a change. If you’re keen to feel more confident and you’d like to revamp your image, you don’t have to spend a fortune. There are some very simple, affordable ways to switch up your look.
