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.

So I have been best friends with this girl for six years, after Halloween she has not called me, answered my calls, or come over to my house (we live close to each other and go over to our houses all the time). I don't know why she hasn't talked to me and shes the type of person if you did something to make her mad she would tell you.  I don't want to call her (it may seem needy) but I have a bunch of her stuff at my house and I really just don't want them there anymore but I don't want to call her have a huge fight and avoid each other ( which would be really hard) forever.

This is really true and sad... Many teens, have a problem with this because of society. This post helps. I have had problem with suicide and bullying. Ive felt like I should just end it because I have no point to be here because I'm being told I'm worthless, to fat, to dumb, not pretty enough, all tons of lies and i got to the point that i believe them. I'm an outsider in my school. It fells like a lot of people leave me.  I fell pain a lot. and There is bullying going on in my school. Life fell mean less a lot. I have to remind myself that I do have a point and that people do love me.  I know know I do have a reason to live and so do you guys so  Don't ruin you're life. You're to young.  You're to worthy. The bully are just jealous of you. Don't self harm tonight. Don't comment suicide. You all are worth A lot I promise. People love you. Don't worry about hatters. The hatter are gonna hate but lovers are there to help you trough the pain and if you did comment suicide imagine how they'd fell. Thanks for posting this it really helped me and really could've saved a life:) :) Bullies are just having problems themselves remember that!!!! Stay strong everyone!!!

It feels like no one cares about me at school. I really can't trust anybody either. I started to quit eating at home and at school only eating snacks every now and then. I am also losing Weight. I used to get called fat and i wasn't even fat. I have been abused by people who say my butt is smexy and huge and it's not. I have even been slapped on by them. I tell my mom and dad that i've been called fat and my dad ignore's me and continues whatever he's doing. I'm getting to the point again where i'm losing my temper and emotions right on the spot. I can't be bipolar cause it has to run in the family and my mom says i don't have it. People get mad at me when i don't laugh at their jokes when they expect me too cause i really don't listen. But when i say something funny they roll their eyes and give me mean looks. I don't even want to be around people that much. I just want to be outside in the fresh air during school but it's high school so their's no outside time. I also fake smile's at people to make them happy. But i just hurt on the inside. I just want advice.  Hi there. I'm sure you have people who care about you at school, just sometimes it's hard to see it. Dear, you have to eat. I assure you, you're not fat. (smexy isn't necessarily a bad thing)  You have to understand, that people say things just because they can, or to make themselves feel better. Never give them that opportunity, just ignore them. When you're about to lose your temper, think of something that makes you really happy.  If you need someone to talk to, you have your guidance consular, trust me I have social anxiety, and reallly hate talking about my problems, I find it easier for me, to message them. It's their job to listen, but not only that, they really care for all of their students. Talking helps, believe me.

Things happen for a reason, normally to make others stronger. Trust me, nothing is worth taking your own life. If you need to talk I'm here, however I would suggest you talking to an adult.  Friends come and go. you have family, and if not, you have me, Trust me, it's not worth it. please, don't.
