Drastic Summer Hairstyles/Colors to Boost Your Confidence

GO RED.

Most people like to go light for the warmer months; I prefer to go dark. However, I have been having an urge to dye my hair red once again. It truly is a color that work for every skin tone, but seems to be intimidating. Now I’m not saying go firetruck red, but there are many other shades to choose from. You can do incredible fiery red, wine, auburn red, mahogany, ginger, reddish brown, bright red and burgundy colors. You will be able to find one that works for you. I think red would bring out a tan just as well as blonde. Red is definitely a summer color.

GO TO THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE COLOR SPECTRUM

If you are a brunette, go blonde. If you are blonde, dye your hair a warm chocolatey brown or even black (using a temporary hair color of course). Change is good, and if you’re anything like me, you like to go to extremes. There are no in-betweens. Plus, your hair is your number one accessory, and changing it up will get you lots of attention.

CHOP IT OFF, CHOP IT OFF

I know cutting your hair can be scary, but find a style that you like and run with it. Chopping your hair off will make it easier to handle in the summer. Having long hair until the end of my senior year, I can truly say that the hair cut will be like a breath of fresh air. From washing to styling to maintaining it throughout the day, short hair is easier to manage on every level, especially with the long days on the beach.

Consider it?

 

Even though changing your hair color or style doesn’t seem like a big deal, it makes a big difference in your life. A small change can have a huge impact on the way you view yourself and the world. Cutting your hair is symbolic of a new start, and time for personal growth. Going from your usual color to something new is really exciting, and will inspire change in your life.
