Faux It ’til You Make It
Whether you want your hair longer or shorter, there are always ways to switch it up without making a permanent change to your look! Extensions and other awesome hair accessories and tools make it super easy (and fun!) to change your look without making a huge commitment! We have three great options for you to try out!
Extensions are perhaps the most obvious choice when wanting longer hair. There are so many different kinds of extensions, so finding something that works for you and your hair shouldn’t be a problem! There are clip-in extensions, sew-in extensions, and several other styles, but the most important part of choosing your extensions is to match the color and texture of your hair. Lots of extensions are made out of human hair, so they can actually be dyed your exact hair color! Take your extensions with you the next time you get your hair colored and you are sure to have a perfect match! The texture is also really important when it comes to matching your hair. It is best to match your natural texture, so you are able to style them with the rest of your hair for a seamless match.
The faux bob became a celebrity favorite a few years ago, and it is exploding all of sites like Pinterest! This look is surprisingly easy to achieve in a few steps! First you want to style your hair how you want it, whether that be straight, wavy, or curly. Then simply tuck under and pin to your desired length! So simple! This looks best with some texture and a messier style so the ends camoflauge and blend together. Testing out the short look is a great way to see if you want to make the commitment to short hair! (and to trick your friends!)
Committing to cutting bangs is actually a big deal. If you end up not liking them, then you have to go through the “growing-out” process, which can be quite annoying until they get long enough to pull back. So why not try out some faux bangs to see if you want to take the chop?! The easiest way to go is to buy some clip-on bangs, but you can also create the look using your own hair! Simply twist your hair into a bun, leaving a few inches (your desired bang length) out of the bun. Style your new “bangs” with a straightener or blow-drier, and you can easily test out the look of bangs with your own hair!
Getting a new dramatic look is easier than you might have thought! It can be so fun to play around with new looks! Have you ever tested out any of these looks? We want to see! Tag us on twitter @jfrancisbeauty and Instagram @johnfrancisbeauty!
