How Will This Article Come to Help?
The thing is that growing out your natural hair is a very tough and time-consuming job (apparently your whole life) and it is not at all easy to change it drastically like by cutting it in half or colouring it completely opposite to your hair color. It is risky and it takes up a lot of your energy and time. And you do not know what will be the end product.
But that absolutely does not mean you cannot do new hairstyle every day. You surely can. This article will help you with that. So that you can have a new look and yet do not have to lose your original self. Best of both worlds.
With these techniques you will not have to apply scissor on your hair, go through colour treatment or spend lots of bucks, time, imagination and effort. Simple DIY ideas for you to try at home.
Changing sides does not mean you have to stop supporting your favourite team and support the opposites or leave your favourite side of bed and travel to the opposite end, all it means to have your hair combed and parted on a different point. If you always comb left then go for the right, if you are on the right side take a left. Or opt for middle or leave it. You get the picture, right? Explore different areas of your head. Make new states.
According to Gibson, “A center part can give a rounder face a more angular appearance. Meanwhile, a deep side part can bring more focus to the eyes.” Side part also adds volume to the hair. Middle part gives a symmetrical and structured vibe. A low parting gives off an incredible movement to your hair.
And like me and many another person in the world, most of the people have a cowlick up front standing on the hairline. It is a lock of hair hanging or projecting out. A side part positioned directly to the opposite way can sure create the incredible effect of lifted hair. By parting your hair you can also fake layers.
Done with partings what about no parts at all? Yeah. There is no rule that you have to always part your hair. In fact, you can just comb your hair back to hide any parting showing off. A back-combed hair looks really slick and chic for an evening occasion and of course, you can wear it at work, no hair will disturb you then.
This hairstyle has a very strong demeanour in it as if you are a strong dark person with a “Do Not Mess With Me Sign” (to me of course). After pulling your hair back you can add a pony or a headband or braid as you wish. Choices are open. This wet look of yours will surely not be futile.
To keep the back-look okay whole day use gel, oil or spray or combine gel and oil like celebrity stylist Clariss Rubenstein, “I use a little too much oil at first to make the hair look wet (this also keeps the gel from penetrating the hair and making it stiff), then I apply gel to help the hair stay in place.” This style suits both men and women.
Like how in childhood you were tucked in your bed with care and love (well I wasn’t as I lived in a warm climate so no blanky for me) tuck your hair as well. Take it all back behind your ear. It is also a good of a change. May not feel anything drastic but you will be amazed when you see the difference. But sorry curlies tucking is not a thing for you (ask my hair I can never tuck they bounce back) or those you have very thin hair. Tucking in thin hair will make it look thinner for them it is best to let hair open and free, falling on face.
Faux Hair- The Wig
Yes. The most obvious one. Wearing a wig is not that tough or big science, all you have to do is pull your real head tight inside and put on your desired hair style wig. Thus, you can experience that longtime wish of bob hair, lob (long bob), long locks or the crazy unicorn theme coloured hair. The wig can be really helpful when you want to experiment with your hair but are not sure about what to do.
Celebrity Popular Faux Bob
Almost every celebrity, stylist, and fashion lovers do fake bobs. Many time a bob look will look great with a dress or for an event that time cutting hair is surely insane so what cannot be done. Wear a wig or turn your long natural hair into a bob hairdo or lob. There are few techniques but they are more than enough for you to rock a bob style.

Adding New Layers
As said by adding extensions you can give your hair some additional layers as well. They add volume, they give off a nice movement, they can frame your face and give out a rocking look. Experiment with your natural length by flipping hair to one side and by adding in. A small cut at a small section of hair can help too. Your choice.
Remember: Always brush your extension and keep them tangle-free no matter what if you want to keep them for a long time looking good.

Comb your hair and tie it up in a slick pony, go higher on the top or let it just dangle on a side. Chose your pony of the day.
