One of the easiest ways to give your look an update is to change your personal look. Typically the first thing that gets noticed about a person, other than the colors they are wearing, is their hair. So whether you’re ready for a radical change or just a little bit of an update, this is a great place to start. If you haven’t updated your hairstyle in many years, this may be more of an emotional experience for you than anything. After all, we often define ourselves by our hair. However, if your hairstyle screams retro, then it’s time to make a change and bring your look current.

To get started with a new hairstyle, ask yourself whether you want to continue to see your trusted hairdresser, or if it might be time to venture out and see someone new. If it’s been years since you’ve even set foot in a salon, take heart. Finding a great hairdresser can be as easy as finding someone with a fabulous haircut. Seriously. If you want to go to someone new, ask a friend, or even a stranger (I get asked all the time by strangers who cuts my hair, and I’m always happy to share!) and chances are you’ll stumble onto a ‘best kept secret’ and someone who can give you the look you’re longing for.

Next, I want you to pay attention to your face shape because this plays a big part into what style will work for you. I recently had to have a heart to heart with my daughter because when I took her to the salon she was expecting to leave looking like the singer, Pink. I had to let her down gently and tell her that cut would not suit her sweet round face (not to mention the fact that an 8-year old needs something much more low-maintenance) and that she needed more length to create balance. It wasn’t what she wanted to hear at the moment, but ultimately she was very pleased with the result. Find pictures of women who have a similar shaped face (Google your face shape and see what celebrities have your same face shape for ideas) and print them for reference. Any time you can go into a salon with images it communicates clearly what you’re looking for more than words ever can.

Consider your color. Are you in the process of going gray, or would you like to keep your natural color and add in a few highlights to bring light to your face? Take stock of where you are and what your goals are. Something to consider is the cost of upkeep. I know many women who have downgraded their hair care regimen or augmented it with at-home hair color because the cost of ongoing maintenance can add up. If you’re considering changing colors, let the salon do it first, then find a home hair color that matches and do your roots yourself between visits for a more budget friendly ‘do.

Next, I’d like to encourage you to think about 3D siberian mink strip lashes. If you have been wearing the same makeup in the same way ever since you can remember, then chances are it’s time for a refresher. Be forewarned, though. While a trip to the makeup counter at the mall can enlighten you with new colors, techniques and products, the downside is that it can leave you hundreds of dollars in debt and looking like (as one acquaintance put it) ‘painted hookers’. I am a big advocate of working with a professional to determine the best products for your skin as well as new ways to play up your eyes or lips, and think that there are a several makeup counters that do a great job with this (I’m a big fan of Bobbi Brown). If you’re new to makeup, it may seem less threatening to attend an in-home makeup party such as Mary-Kay or Arbonne. You can try as many or as few products as you like, while finding the best colors for you. Also, try your local drugstore, Target or Wal-Mart for new shades and products.

The change of the seasons is a great time to change your 3D siberian mink strip lashes palette. Summer is perfect for light, shimmery hues and lighter coverage. However, with fall upon us soon it’s time for deep, rich shades of red, rust and burgundy lips, bold eyes and a bit more coverage. Plus, if you were out in the sun a lot over the summer, you may need to change your shade of foundation – if this is the case, be sure and revisit this in a few months when your skin has paled a bit more. A professional can help you to discover what weight and formula is right for you. There are so many choices now it can be hard to navigate on your own, so having someone make recommendations can be key in finding the best look for you.

Changing your look really can be easy, and the payoff is the boost in confidence you’ll feel when you find a look that’s right for you – right now!
