Top Tips for Changing Up Your Look

As we approach the new year, you might be trying to think of ways that you can switch up your look and do something different. Refreshing your look can be surprisingly easy. All you need is the confidence to step out of your comfort zone and say yes to something entirely new.

Whether you purge out your closet to make room for new clothes or you change your hairstyle, you can make a big difference to the way you feel about your look. Even the smallest changes can sometimes make a big difference. Some people choose to get a new helix piercing, a new nose piercing or even a tattoo. Other people choose a new hair style or hair colour. So with that in mind, we've got a list of tips that you can use to change up your look and change the game.

  1. Cut your hair. Changing your hair can completely transform your face and accentuate your features. A new haircut can change your look quite dramatically if you go from long hair to short etc. You might find that changing the look by adding a fringe or layers is an easier option. It's a great way to change your look without going too drastic. Remember, hair always grows back.

2. Dye your hair. Changing your hair colour can make a huge change to your look, and talking to a hair stylist about a new colour is a great way to upgrade your look. If you don't want to go for a full colour transformation then lowlights can be a good refresh and can enhance the colour that you’ve got.

3. Add extensions to your current style. When was the last time you got a change of hair at all? Simple changes like with extensions can change your look and give you the impression of being more refreshed. When you do this, you elevate your look and you can even change your hair colour with extensions so you get a whole new look twice over!

4. New glasses/or switching to contacts. If you wear glasses right now, then how about getting contacs for the new year? Or vice versa! Wearing glasses is a great option for your face and changing the shape of your glasses and upgrading the frames can make a difference too.

5. Gorgeous teeth! When was the last time you went to a dental hygienist? They will be able to bring your smile back to its sparkling glory. Coffee and wine stains don't have to hold you back and you can then feel confident in your smile. And if you need a bit more help, there are so many options for teeth whitening out there and your dentist will be happy to advise you on your options.

6. Experiment with your makeup. A new look can go a long way and experimenting with makeup colors and styles can help you change it up. Switching from a smiple liner to a cat eye can make a big change to your face but it can also help you up your confidence. Maybe a gorgeous new red lipstick? Or a smokey eye? If you're not confident in makeup, why not book a lesson at a counter to help you learn.

7. Get your closet cleared out. Purging your unworn and unloved clothing from your closet is a big job and it’s one that will benefit you in the long run. It can be hard to upgrade your look without too much effort. Selling your older pieces and buying new clothing which reflect the new you is important.

8. See a personal stylist. And if you don't have a clue where to start with a new wardrobe, but you want to change your look in the new year, then you should make sure that you get advice from a personal stylist. They’ll work with you on clothing, hair and makeup and they can help you with the maximum change to make your look more stylish.

9. Book a facial. That dewy skin look everyone is talking about? It will be easily achievable with the help of a facial. You can then get some advice about a skincare regimen and how to keep your skin looking great. Make it a resolution to keep up your skincare routine for the new year, especially if you've been neglecting it lately.

10. Invest in new jewellery. It sounds so simple, but it can work! The dainty look is in and your jewellery doesn't have to be a big statement if you're not comfortable with it. Solid gold is a good option as an investment and will last much longer.

Changing your look may be the best thing that you do for yourself to start the new year, why not start making plans now and not wait?
