Some mornings, you probably look in the mirror and have no clue what to do with your hair.
If you're tired of your mane, trying out a new style can get you out of your rut and back to loving your look.
The simplest and fastest way to change up your look is to add hair accessories. Use bobby pins, scarves, headbands and elastics to add color, gems, or texture to your look. You can even find hair tattoos that will temporarily add colorful designs to your hair.
If you're ready for a big change, ask your stylist about choosing a new color. Sometimes going dark in the fall or winter, or going lighter for spring and summer, can help you get in the spirit of the new season. If you'd rather experiment with color without committing, there are plenty of options for temporary color. Try hair chalk to add pastel colors, wash out dye for brights or clip in extensions for an easy to change look.
Play With Texture
Curly haired girls can straighten their hair, while those with straight hair can curl their ends. Another option is to change your part. A side part can give you a much different look than one that goes down the middle.
Put It Up
You're sure to have some days when it seems like nothing will look the way you want. Those are the perfect days to throw your hair up and go with it. A messy bun is a popular style that was made for those who are running low on time or need a quick solution. Twist, wrap, and secure your hair then head out for the day.

With so much hair inspiration online, it's easy to find a new style to try out. Braids are super trendy and there are hundreds of braided styles to choose from.
A simple fishtail braid is a great place to start. If you have a hard time braiding your own hair in a way you like it, find a friend. You can practice different styles on each other.
Sometimes, a temporary change is all it takes to break out of a hair rut. Other times, you might want a more dramatic change.
