Do you fancy a change? Do you want to overhaul your look for your summer holiday or an upcoming music festival? Pick something you can wash off, something to last all summer or something to last for the rest of your life, from the ideas below.
First of all try some non-permanent measures to switch up your look. Use a wash in, wash out hair dye. If you've got light hair, you could even try one of the very popular pastel colours trending at the moment. Why not combine them all and have rainbow hair for the summer? Or try a dramatic hair accessory like a flower crown or these head chains.
Another way of drastically changing your look without any permanent consequences is to use coloured contact lenses. You can change your eye colour to any nother natural eye colour. So blue-eyed ladies can go for brown, green or lilac and vice versa. If you are looking for more of an extreme change, you could get some blackout lenses. Perfect for that heavy metal festival or cosplay convention.
Feeling a little braver? Why no go for a more lasting semi-permanent change? I count cutting and dying your hair in this category because hair grows so you won't have the look forever. Getting the right cut and colour for your skin tone and face shape, affects your look in a big way. If you're currently sporting long hair, why don't you go for a short on the sides and long on the top pixie crop? This cut is perfect for hotter weather as there is no hair weighing you down and heating you up. Pixie cuts look super cool too! If you have pale skin, consider blonde or light brown colour for your hair. If you have a warmer skin tone try and deep brown, red or black.
Another semi-permanent change you can make this summer is to get a fake or spray tan or use gradual tanning products in your home. The only problem with gradual tanning is that you do have to apply them once a day until you reach the required colour that you are looking. But they are a good value option to maintain your tan for the whole summer.
So if you're feeling a bit more daring, a permanent change might be for you. As this is a more drastic option, you need to think carefully before going for any change that your can't reverse.
Some of the most artistic permanent changes available are of course tattoos. With such a wide range of tattoos available, how do you know which one to pick? A style that is trending at the moment is the watercolour tattoo. Watercolour tattoos often have bold lines and are filled in with pale coloured streaks. This gives them a beautiful contrast which can look softer than a traditional tattoo. If a tattoo is just too permanent for you, don't worry. There are plenty of temporary options available!
