The New Year is the perfect time to look into ways to change your look. Have you ever heard the saying “New Year, new you”? Well, with all the resolutions and changes happening during the New Year, why not make it a case of out with the old and in with the new?
It’s the ideal time to embrace and experiment with new and different styles. You don’t have to commit to a drastic or life-changing look either. There are plenty of simple, commitment-free ways to change your look in the New Year.
Change your hair colour
One of the most tried and tested ways to change your look is with a new hair colour. If you don’t want to spend the money and hours on a salon treatment, then try going a few shades darker with a home hair colouring kit. For a less permanent yet equally noticeable option, try spray on hair colour in fun and crazy hues.
Embrace a new lip colour
A coat of lipstick can really make a difference. When it comes to changing your look, try choosing a new shade of lipstick, stain, or gloss. If red lipstick is your signature, why not try a pretty pink hue instead? If you’re always wearing nude lips, then try a bold colour for some extra drama. Alternatively, if you’re always wearing colour on your lips, try going for a natural look instead. The best part about changing your lip colour is if you don’t like it, you can change it in an instant!
Play up accessories
A wardrobe overhaul can be quite daunting, so update your usual outfits with some new, trend-based accessories instead. For the most part, you can buy plenty of fashionable accessories on a budget, so you don’t have to commit the big dollars you’d otherwise spend on designer accessories. Accessories can really update an outfit and are a simple and effective way to change your look.
Switch your hair parting
Changing where you part your hair is a simple way to change your look. It can also be one of the most noticeable. You’d be surprised how much of a difference it can make! If you usually part it to the side, try parting it in the middle or to the other side. It might take some time to retrain your hair to part in its new position, so patience is the key.
Try out nail art
Ditch your normal manicure for some fun nail art. There’s just so much inspiration these days when it comes to nail art, you’re spoilt for choice. Set aside an afternoon and try anything from patterned nails to dazzling embellishments. If you want a fuss-free option, try nail transfers and wraps instead.
Step out in new shoes
Shoes can really make or break an outfit and when it comes to your New Year look, they can play an important role. No matter what your personal style, trading in your usual shoes for a new pair can instantly refresh your look. For example, if you usually wear flat shoes, try on a pair of heels to give you some extra height. Statement shoes are also quite on-trend right now and are a great way of adding some flair to an outfit.
