When is it time for a transformation?

When is it time for a transformation?

New year, new you? Or is it just time for a change? Out with the old look, and in with new drama and WOW. No matter why you’ve decided you need a change, it’s time for something new. That part is easy. Deciding what that change will be is where the angst starts. 

You want to look trendy but not like you’re trying too hard. Compliments are your goal, and whispers behind your back are the thing you most want to avoid. How do you find that look that will make everyone want what you’ve got? This is where we come in. The following tips will get you that new look you’re dreaming of.

How to transform into the best you

Your hair is your crowning glory. It’s a noticeable feature, and it’s something you can change. That makes your hair a pretty awesome accessory. So, now that you’re ready to take the plunge, where do you start? 

Healthy choices

The first step to creating awesome hair is having healthy hair. If you’re already making great choices that support all-over health, then celebrate you a little bit and enjoy a nutrient-packed smoothie of your choice. 

If you’re not making those great choices, go have a smoothie anyway, but make your super healthy by adding some Clinical Formula Hair Vitamins. Just like that, you’re already taking steps toward your goal by nourishing your hair.

Now you can start making more healthy lifestyle choices that including eating more fruits and veggies, drinking tons of water, and avoiding overindulging. With this goal, you will not only create a healthier version of you, but it also gives your hair a solid nutrition-filled base.

Finding inspiration

Now that your hair is in tip-top shape, you know it’s able to handle some changes. Check out our Instagram and Pinterest pages to find styles that highlight real trends that are happening now. 

Celebrities are a great source of hair cut inspiration, like Gabrielle Union’s adorable pixie and Reese Witherspoon’s sassy lob. Just remember to look for their everyday style rather than photoshopped professional shoots or red carpet looks that can be impossible to replicate.

Picking a color

Today’s hair color trends run the gamut from the super-natural style that lets your original color shine, to amped-up fake colors you would never see naturally, like icy blue and shocking pink. So how do you decide what color to pick when you can literally choose anyone? 

The key to a flawless hair color choice is to focus on your skin tone. If you’re doing this yourself, this is going to be extra important because the wrong shade can make you look pale and sickly or bright red and uncomfortable. 

The rule of thumb is to select a hair color tone that’s the opposite of your skin tone. This means cool-toned skin looks best with warm hair tones and vice versa.

If a colorist is going to help you make your transformation, then they can work with undertones and highlights to force just about any color to look phenomenal with your skin tone.

Finding the right cut

You’ve already got some inspiration, but will what looks good on someone else be a showstopper for you? To pick a cut that will work for you, the first thing you want to pay attention to is your level of bravery and commitment.

If you’re not quite ready to drop your waist-long locks and adopt a pixie cut, that’s no problem–something more subtle like a lob can ease you into your new look. Whether you’re thinking about a moderate change or a dramatic one, sometimes it’s easiest to start slow and do a little change at a time.

If you love the attention a dramatic cut creates–then this is your time to go wild. You are the sort who happily understands that it’s just hair and it will grow back. This makes you the ideal candidate for dramatic pixie cuts and trendsetting choppy layers.

Once you’ve decided on the pace of your transformation, the shape of your face is your next consideration. Picking a cut that highlights your assets and plays down your weaknesses is a brilliant way to look your best. 

Product changes

Some hairstyle transformations will also require a few new products. If you’re adding color or stripping color, moisture is going to be essential. Adding a regular treatment of Hair La Vie Masque can give your hair the hydration it needs to hold the change and stay healthy.

To fuel your hair from the inside, and make a long-lasting change, try Clinical Formula Hair Vitamins to give your hair the nutrition it needs. Then support those changes by switching to Hair La Vie Shampoo and Conditioner. With a proprietary blend of 21 all-natural ingredients, your hair is set to go on a journey that will lead to longer, fuller, and healthier hair in just a few months.

Final thoughts

Be brave, be bold–be the best you that you can be with a style that’s as awesome as you are. If you’re ready for a transformation and a new look, then a little research will ensure that you get a great look and not a knee-jerk style that you regret immediately. 

The tips above will help you not only find inspiration for looks that are attainable but ones that flatter your face, coloring, and personality. 

While picking a cut and color can give you a fresh new look and attitude, changing the choices you make to healthier ones will help support the new you from the inside out. The confidence that comes from looking great and knowing you’re making great lifestyle choices is simply unbeatable.
