If there’s one thing that people tend to like to experiment with, its hair. Hair grows, colour washes out, and greys happen so why not have fun with it? However, changing your hair can often cost a lot of money. What can you do if you want to makeover your hair without spending a fortune?
Get A Personalized Color Made For You
Rather than going to the salon, you can get a personalized colour made for you online. This might sound risky, but hear us out. You send information about your skin tone and eye colour to the company, and they mix you a colour that they feel will suit you best. In essence, it’s a box dye, but they make it so easy and personalized that you’d be hard-pressed to have a hair disaster with it. If you’ve been wondering what sort of colours suit you best, try this out. You won’t be disappointed, and there’s a money back guarantee if you are. Much cheaper than the hairdressers!
Get It In Amazing Condition
Maybe you don’t need to do anything drastic to your hair at all – maybe you just need to get it in great condition. This could completely change your hair from dry and with lots of split ends to silky smooth and easy to style. There are plenty of affordable options for this. Take a look:
- Apply natural products like coconut oil to your hair as a mask.
- Invest in a cheap hair mask or conditioner and leave it in overnight before washing out.
- Buy a silk pillowcaseALASKA BEAR – Natural Silk Pillowcase, Hypoallergenic, 19 momme, 600 thread count 100 percent Mulberry Silk, Queen Size with hidden zipper(Ivory white) – you can find relatively cheap options on ebay.
- Make a silk hair scarf and wear it to bed to stop pulling on your hair as you sleep.
- Trim your dead ends using a YouTube video to guide you.
- Always use heat protectant spray before drying or styling.
- Add oil while your hair is damp. The products you use can make a huge difference! I use shea butter and I love it!
The above are just a few things you can do to get your hair in amazing condition. Try them and see what they do for you.
Have It Cut Into A Bob
If you’ve had long hair forever, it could be time to have it cut into a bob. Not all bobs are created equal, so don’t worry; there is definitely a bob to suit your lifestyle and face shape. You could go for something asymmetric, for instance, or a long bob if you’re afraid of going too short, to begin with.
Go For Bangs
Bangs grow out pretty quickly, so if you’ve thought about having them for a while but never gone for it, just do it! Just make sure you watch videos on how to style them right from the beginning, as this can be the hardest thing about having them for the first time. You can visit the website here to see which hairstyles look best with bangs.
Try The Pixie Crop
Maybe you’re feeling extra brave and like you want an even bigger change. Go for a pixie crop! These hairstyles are low maintenance and edgy. If they suit your style, you’re going to love it – even if they don’t suit your style, it’s never too late to try something new.
Add Some Hair Extensions
Hair extensions are a fantastic way of adding volume and length, depending on what you’re after. They’re perfect for even fine hair. You can get real hair extensions if you have the budget, but if not, synthetic hair extensions are reasonably cheap and can still look great, you just can’t style them as you would real hair.
Try A Hairpiece
Better still, why not try a hairpiece? It’s one piece of hair that you simply place on your head that adds instant volume and an even better style to your hair. This sort of option is usually better for thicker hair types who don’t need much help in the way of volume.
Throw On A Wig
Wigs are becoming far more realistic and popular. It isn’t unusual to see a celebrity wearing a wig on the red carpet and even those who don’t want to spend a fortune bleaching their hair, for instance. You can use your wig whenever you want a quick change without the commitment and maintenance. Much cheaper, when you think about it.
Watch Some YouTube Tutorials
YouTube tutorials can teach you pretty much anything. You could cut your own bangs, color your hair like the rainbow, or learn how to do a fancy braid and new hairstyle. Whatever you want to learn, check out YouTube first and see how easy it seems. Just remember that if you try something you’re not confident with and it goes drastically wrong, you might end up spending even more at the hairdressers to get it fixed.
Add An Unusual Hair Accessory
Maybe you shouldn’t do anything to your hair at all – add an unusual hair accessory instead. Wear a headband, or a silk scarf, or even a hat or fancy clip. Try something new and see how you feel. I see these fancy hair clips a lot these days. I shall be brave and try one of them.
Use A Special Shampoo
There are silver shampoos that can give blonde hair a more silvery tone if left in for long enough, and there are shampoos that can lift at the roots and help to give hair more volume. Look for the right kind of shampoo for you and you could give your hair a refresh for very little money at all.
Use A Temporary Color
Temporary colour can either wash in and out or can wash out after a handful of washes. If you have light hair, why not try purple, pink, or blue? Rainbow hair is all the rage lately! Just make sure you section the hair and cover it evenly. In some cases, you may need to buy two boxes for long or thick hair.
