Are you a little too comfy with your hairstyle? Have you had the same look in the past 5 New Year’s celebrations photos? If you answered yes to either of those questions, then it’s time for a new look! We chatted with Simone Thomas, Owner of Multi Award Winning Hair Salon Simone Thomas Salon, to get some hair tips on reinventing your hairstyle for 2016 such as hair extensions or a new professional hair colour! Check them out!
If your hair is getting a little stale, the start of a new year is the perfect time to switch up your look. After all, a new year is a fresh start in so many ways, and it’s the perfect time to really make a change. According to Simone, change can range from subtle to dramatic. In fact, change doesn’t only encompass your actual hair; it can also mean a change in stylist!
Whatever change you make, you’re sure to feel refreshed afterwards: “A new look can be life changing but incredibly exciting. Sometimes just getting extra compliments can make you feel so great about yourself and be a big boost in your self-esteem. Who doesn’t like to get noticed?!”
If you are ready for a change, here are Simone’s top six tips for reinventing your hairstyle this year!
Try a different parting
Many of us rarely switch things up when it comes to the side we part our hair on. But trying a different part can give you a completely new look. The best part? It’s not permanent! If you don’t like it, you can always change your parting back.
Get a bangin’ new look
Have you always wanted bangs or a fringe? Have you always been a bit too nervous to try them out? If bangs will work for your face shape, now’s the time to try them out, Simone says!
Cut things up
If you haven’t changed the cut of your hair in quite some time, it’s high time to make a change. “If you’re at a loss, tear out pictures from magazines of styles that you love. By doing so, your stylist will have an idea of what you’re envisioning,” Simone says.
“Colour changing is so important, especially seasonal,” Simone says. Whether you’re concerned about gray hairs that are popping up or you’d like to lighten your look for the season ahead, changing the colour of your hair can really refresh your look this year!
Hair Extensions can dramatically alter the way you feel about your hair and can allow you to have a style that may not have been achievable to you before. “We offer free hair extension consultations so you can explore all your options”, Simone says.
Switch your hair stylist
If you’re still stuck and can’t decide on the best way to reinvent your look this year, it might be time to seek a new opinion. “Sometimes you get stuck in a rut and it’s hard to figure out how to make a change,” Simone says.
