Changing your look doesn’t have to mean transforming your signature style or throwing out your existing wardrobe. In fact, there are surprisingly simple ways you can give yourself a makeover without taking things to the extreme. If you’re looking for hassle-free ways to shake up your style, take a look at these top tips now:
Try a new hair style or color
Changing your hairstyle is one beauty trick that can transform your entire appearance. A new hair color is an excellent way to change things up a little. If you’re looking for a subtle change, then opt for a color that’s just one or two shades different from your natural hair. A temporary or semi-permanent color will give you the chance to experiment with a range of shades before you decide whether or not to make the change permanent. Another way to experiment is to add highlights to your hair. This is a more subtle, permanent change which lasts until the hair grows out.

Smile a little brighter
Nothing knocks your confidence like dull, discolored teeth. Don’t let a little staining hold you back. A trip to your dentist means you can transform your teeth with professional whitening, but this may not be necessary for minor imperfections. Sometimes, a whitening or charcoal toothpaste is all it takes to get your teeth gleaming again. Before you spend a lot of money or try harsh chemicals, think of more natural solutions.

Grow your hair
If a haircut can transform your appearance, then so can growing it. Of course, you won’t want to wait months to start rocking your new look. With clip-in hair extensions, you can increase the length of your hair in seconds. Whether you’re going for long, curly waves or mid-length, poker-straight tresses, extensions give you the flexibility to wear your hair any way you choose. Perhaps you don’t want to grow your hair long, but enjoy having long hair for special events. If you have fine straight hair like mine, I love the added fullness a few extensions add. They are affordable and readily available.
