Makeup and clothes make an impact too, but changing up your hairstyle leaves a lasting impression. If you’re looking for a dramatically different ‘do, check out these Before and Afters for plenty of ideas on how to get an instant makeover with a new hairstyle.
1. Try Bangs
If you don’t already have them, try bangs! They’re a great way to make a dramatic difference in your look. Just check out these lovely ladies and how a quick trim to add some bangs into their hairstyle instantly transformed their look! If you’re a bit apprehensive about bangs, talk to your stylist first who may suggest longer or side swept bangs to start out with.
2. Layers, Layers, Layers!
Layers add depth and dimension to your locks. Combined with rich color and beautiful highlights like in this photo, it’s a beautiful new look that makes an impact! Your stylist will be able to recommend some color that will enhance your features and what layers will be most complementary. If you’re hesitant about the maintenance involved with layers, try out some long layers first which can be easier to style and a little more fuss-free.
If you have the complexion and are fearless, color is a great way to dramatically change your look! Go from blonde to brunette or if you’re dark haired, try red or extreme highlights! Even the slightest color change can make the greatest different and completely brighten your look. The possibilities are virtually endless when it comes to how you can play with color to change your hairstyle.
4. Play with Your Length
Long beautiful locks never go out of style, but sometimes it’s nice to change things up a bit. If you’re one of those gals who has been attached to her long tresses for quite a few years, it may be time to chop things up a bit! A few inches off your mane, some highlights and some layers will make for a dramatically different look compared to plain, long locks. Don’t be afraid to embrace something new and be adventurous with your new style! Remember, you’ll always be able to grow it back!
