The changing over of the seasons is an excellent opportunity to refresh your overall look. As the weather changes, you’re often forced to alter your wardrobe due to climbing or plummeting temperatures, so it really does make the perfect time to change things up by changing more than just the length of your sleeves and the weight of the fabric you wear.
Fall in particular is a fun opportunity for style makeovers; with the crisp and cool—but not bitter cold—air prevalent in fall, you’ll find many options at your disposal, since a wider range of clothing choices, owing to the fact that the intermediate temperatures mean both somewhat warm and somewhat cool clothing options will feel comfortable in this season.
But changing your wardrobe isn’t all you can do this fall! Think about it; if you’re going to go to the effort to change your look for the changing seasons, why stop at just clothes? Use it as an excuse to give your hair a massive transformation that will have strangers turning heads in awe and friends doing a double take when they see you. When combined with a wardrobe overhaul, a hair transformation can really cement your new look, and Vine Vera, of course, has a few ideas on how to make it happen.
Nothing says “daring” or “transformative” like getting a brand new haircut, especially in a style you’ve never tried. Tired of the hassles of long hair and all the work that goes into it? Try a cute bob, a bold pixie cut, or whatever else strikes your fancy.
Alternately, get a weave—or extensions—and make it longer! If you tried short hair and it didn’t work out for you (or maybe it did, but you’re just ready to go back), don’t wait forever for it to grow! Get a weave or extensions to get the long, gorgeous hair you desire.
Do you want to elicit that double-take reaction we mentioned in spades? Go for a really dramatic change and dye your hair. If you want it to be especially appropriate for the fall season, think blonde, red, or red-orange, to mimic the yellows, red, and oranges you’re likely to see on all the trees around this time.
Want to be even more dramatic? Go for a non-natural color like blue, purple, green, etc. You’re never too old to have fun with your hair! That said, do think carefully before going this route; it’s definitely a bold choice, so be sure you really want it and don’t do it on a whim.
Tired of your plain, flat, straight hair? Get a perm and go curly! Tired of the hassles of dealing with curly or wavy hair? Think about getting it permanently straightened. In this day and age, we’re not necessarily stuck with what we’re born with, and lots of techniques exist to alter the texture of your hair, which can be a fun change. Do keep in mind, though, that while texture changes can be permanent on your existing hair, your roots will grow back as whatever you have naturally.
