Try It! 5 New Hairstyles

May 13, 2013

If you're looking to try a new hairstyle, we've got just the ticket for snapping out of a hair rut! Whether you wear the same old ponytail or your hair down everyday, trying a new hairstyle is an easy way to instantly change your look. We've tracked down a few super cute hairstyles that would change up your look - no need for a trip to the hairdresser or any drastic haircuts! All you need is some creativity and some hair pins!

1. Braid Headband

Braided headbands are the perfect way to keep your long hair back from your face when the weather gets hot this summer. This works best on long hair that isn't layered and is much easier than it looks.  Part your hair down the middle and make a small braid on each side starting from behind the ears. Pull them over each other (to the opposite side) and use pins to pin them tightly against the head.

2. Dip Dye Hair

Use temporary hair color that washes out to get Dakota Fanning's dual-toned dip dye hair colour! If you're blonde, pink looks a pretty contrast. If you have dark hair, try something bolder like blue or purple - don't be afraid to experiment, it will wash out anyway! You can go half and half like Dakota and just let a few wispy colored ends or choose a section and just color one thick section. This is an easy way to get a bit of rockstar edginess without going too all out!

3. Top Knot

For a new way to do a bun, try a simple topknot like Shenae Grimes! Pull hair into a ponytail right on top of your head, twist your hair and pin the ends in place. Let a few wispy hair pieces fall out for a more casual look or go for the ballerina look and make it look more sleek and dainty.

4. Contrast Hairpins

Emma Stone's pretty pinned hairstyle looks amazing and better yet, is super easy to pull off! All you need are some contrast bobby pins and some hairspray. Go for white like Emma or feel free to pick any other color as long as it stands out against your hair. Use a curling iron to create some waves in your hair but twisting a few pieces around the barrel. Or just simply let your natural waves or curls go au naturale. Pin hair on the side and create a design like Emma's by crisscrossing the pins so they stand out.

5. Side Braid

Adding a side braid is a pretty way to add a bit of style to your hair. Add just one or even two or three! Part your hair in the centre and take a two-inch section of your hair on one side and braid it. Secure with a clear elastic and leave the bottom few inches loose for a more bohemian look.

Start dressing for your shape and also find whats comfortable.  Because if you wear something that is uncomfortable you wont be happy and happiness is the best look :)Most of the time I wear jeans with a graphic tshirt or singlet and a cardigan or light jacket.

I have my earlobe pierced, and I'm considering getting a piercing elsewhere on my ear. I'm thinking my outer conch at the moment.  Do you have ear piercings? Where? What looks good to you? Any advice?
