5 Signs It’s Time to Switch Up Your Look

Being in a rut can come in a lot of different forms. Sometimes it’s your wardrobe, sometimes it’s your fitness routine, but with as many people as we see come sit in our chairs, we know that getting a new hairstyle is a common way to get out of that I need something new/ I feeling boring/ I need a change with something in my life rut.

Still not convinced? Here are 5 signs it’s time to switch up your look and get out of that style rut:

5 Signs It’s Time to Switch Up Your Look

1.) Everyday’s the Same Style

We’ve all got our easy go-to’s, for example the top knot, plain hair in a ponytail, or just flat-ironed straight. However, when your go-to becomes your every-single-solitary-day style, it’s time to switch things up. When you’re reverting to a style out of convenience or you’re hell-bent that you hair only looks good in one style, it’s time to broaden your hair horizons.

Listen, if Ariana Grande can break out of her half-up ponytail hairstyle every now and again, so can you.

2.) You Put Zero Time in to Your Style 

Similar to everyday is the same style problem, this takes it one step further, meaning, you don’t purposely put your hair in to the same style everyday, you just literally don’t do anything to it. For example, you may put your hair in to a top knot everyday, but there’s a difference between the purposely styled top knot (a look we do love), and a top knot that looks like you never even touched it up or bothered to re-do it after a full night’s sleep.

While everyone claims they want an easy wash-and-go style, the truth is every style needs a few minutes of TLC to look decent. And if you’re really in that much of rush, that’s a sign it’s time for a new style that will work better with your lifestyle.

3.) You Can’t Remember the Last Time You Made a Change

Can’t remember the last time you got a trim?

Been blonde since the day you were born?

Still have the same style you had in college…in the 90s?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, please refer to our contact numbers at the bottom for booking your next appointment. Seriously, no one should look like they did in the 90s…ever.

4.)  People Say You Still Look the Same

While usually a compliment, it’s nice to reinvent parts of our look as we travel through life. Maybe that means becoming a fiery redhead or getting a snappy pixie to give you boldness, or maybe it’s something more subtle like getting bangs.

Although you may simply love your hairstyle, consider that you might be hiding behind the same style as a way of holding on to something or using your look as a security blanket. And you know what, it’s fine if you just truly love your style, but it’s kind of like ordering chicken tenders at every restaurant you go to…sure you’ll know you like it, but if you don’t try something different, you many never learn what you’ll really love.

5.) You Feel Blah

It’s fair to say we’ve all felt like this at one point or another, right? However, if you’ve been feeling blah for longer than a couple days, and it’s been more like a few weeks, months or (hopefully not) years, you gotta spice it up.

Life is too short to feel frumpy or fizzled out all the time, so get surfing on Pinterest and find yourself some inspiration and talk to a stylist. A fresh new cut, color, or style could be just what you need to feel re-energized and fabulous!
