Can you believe we’re getting ready to welcome 2017 into our lives? 2016 has been filled with so many things, positive and not so positive. Regardless, it’s always an exciting opportunity to be able to welcome a new year. It’s always this opportunity that so many of us take to reevaluate different areas of our lives, make new goals and plans, and make some changes we’ve been wanting to make. That start to a new year is kind of this OK we give to ourselves to start fresh and begin a new year with a new mindset. We’re willing to bet that you’ve thought about changing your hair in some way or another with the change of a new year. New year, new hair, new you?!
The thing about our hair is many of us tend to get into a routine with it. We style it the same couple of ways pretty much consistently, we tend to stick with the same type of haircut, and it’s hard to get out of that hair rut. But it’s a brand new year just days away, and a great time to make some new hair changes to bring out a whole new you. Making even small changes to your hair can be just the refresh you need to feel like a new you in the new year.
If you’re not quite ready to make a major hair change, there are plenty of other ways you can get new hair feels into your life. If you want to start slowly, try just doing something as simple as changing how you part your hair. Seriously, we get so used to wearing our hair the same exact way – you might be surprised at just how different your hair looks with the change of a part. Another seemingly simple, but powerful, way to change up your hair would be to try out some different hair care products. Again, you might be surprised at just how different your hair looks. While you’re at it, do a little internet searching from some hairstyling ideas and try out a few new hairstyles. It can be such a difference in how your hair looks and how you feel!
Now if you’re feeling like you’re ready for some new hair that’s a bit more drastic than just changing your part or trying a different hairstyle, there are plenty of ideas. One of our first suggestions would be to actually try out a different hair stylist. Even if you love your hair stylist, it can be difficult to get yourself truly new hair when you’re still seeing the same hair stylist that’s been cutting your hair in the same way for years. Try out someone new, and see what types of hairstyle suggestions they have for you – coming from a completely fresh perspective on their end. Another fun way to get some new hair is to add some bangs to your look. Bangs are incredibly versatile and a really fun and easy way to change up your look pretty simply. You don’t have to go for a full bang, ask your new hair stylist what they suggest!
