The year 2020 has been a rough ride for plenty of people, but the good news is you’ve made it! 2021 will arrive in a few days, and there’s no better way to greet the new year than with a stunning makeover. Ready to treat yourself to an awesome new look? Get started by checking out these suggestions.
Give Waxing a Try
Want to get rid of excess hair? Visiting the waxing salon is an effective way of doing that. Compared to shaving, it has a longer-lasting effect as it takes the hair out from the root instead of just cutting it. What’s great’s it can be done from the brows down to your legs.
Before the appointment, make sure that the hair’s 1/4 to 3/4 of an inch long for an efficient and less painful experience. If it’s longer, trim it before your schedule. Aside from hair removal, waxing’s great for mild exfoliation.
Get Luscious Lips
The lips are one of the face’s key features. Keep them smooth by exfoliating once a week. Do this by applying a homemade lip scrub made from coconut oil, honey, and brown sugar. Regular application of lip balm will also prevent them from getting chapped and dry.
Pamper Your Feet
Your feet take you to fun adventures and where you need to go, so special attention must be given to them. Prevent cracked heels by applying lotion on them after bathing. Soaking them in a mixture of salt and lukewarm water helps as well. Once they’re dry, put on petroleum jelly, then wear cotton socks. For best results, let it soak overnight while you sleep.
Rock a New Cut
Trying on a different style can give your look an update. To make sure that your new hairdo will suit you, consider getting one based on the shape of your face. Read on to learn more about haircuts that’ll look good on a round, square, and heart-shaped face.
Full cheeks coupled with a rounded chin are the hallmarks of a round face. If you’re open to having short hair, an asymmetrical bob’s recommended. This style frames your face and contrasts its soft features with a sharp angle.
Another style that’ll look nice on this shape is a layered mid-length or long hair. Layers can add volume to your face’s top half and give the illusion of an elongated face. Long layers will look better than choppy ones.
A square-shaped face is defined by sharp edges and a prominent jawline. Square-faced gals should try an a-line bob, a cut with a lengthy front and a short back. It’ll make your face look fuller and elongated. A long and straight hair will also work as it diverts attention from the jawline. Meanwhile, curls will soften your angular features.
This face shape’s characterized by a wide forehead, high cheekbones, and a pointy chin. Shoulder-length hair or a bob cut that ends below the jaw will suit this shape. This emphasizes your cheeks and draws attention away from the chin. Bangs will make your forehead look smaller as well.
Go Color Crazy
You can opt for temporary hair dyes if you’re not yet ready for a long term change. For this one, you can use hair chalk or a vegetable dye, which lasts a bit longer. Getting highlights is another option. You can also try ombre for a gorgeous combination.
As for the color, you can go traditional with shades of blonde, brown, or red. Or you can channel your inner Katy Perry with electrifying blue or cotton candy pink. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, don a couple of pastel colors to get mermaid hair.
The new year’s a perfect time for reinvention. Aside from giving you something to look forward to, makeovers can deliver a healthy dose of self-care. Let confidence blossom with these ideas for self-renewal.
