Hair Cut Short Cut

I never have enough time (or audacity) to try out new hairstyles. So I am pretty much stuck to one-length bobs until my hair grows long enough to merit a trim. It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s practical and… it’s boring!

Since it’s the official Keep America Beautiful month (you read that right!), I’m here to help you out. If you feel stuck in a style rut like me and want some new flair to your hair (but don’t want to go overboard with it), check out these three DIY tips from Bella Sugar.

  • Tool Time
    Been eyeing that odd-looking blow-dryer attachment for quite some time now? Make the investment in a new beauty tool and see where it takes you. Who knows? A change in curling iron barrel size might be all you need to get over a ho-hum hairstyle.

  • Just a Little Tuck
    As simple as it sounds, just by tucking one side (or both sides) of your hair behind your ear, you can create a variation on your look. For more drama, first create a deep part and tuck the non-heavy side behind your ear. To create faux bangs, loosely tuck and pin about two inches of your hair on the heavy side behind your ear, allowing the hair on top to cascade over.

  • Change of Part
    Whether you part on the left side, right side, or middle, your hair can get accustomed to lying a certain way. A switch in the way you part your locks will not only frame your face in a different manner, but it’ll give you instant volume, too.

And here’s a fourth one from us!

  • Accessorize!
    Sometimes, all it takes is one irresistibly adorable hair accessory to instantly update your hairstyle. Not only will it play up your style, it will also hold your hair in place so that it won’t bother you. Just make sure that it’s guaranteed non-slip! There are plenty of designs to choose from, depending on what suits your personality best. Fashion + function = what are you waiting for? ;o)
