Feel like you’re stuck in a rut with your hair but don’t have the money for an expensive restyle? Try these tips to get a whole new look for your hair while sticking to a tight budget.
1. Dye Your Hair At Home
If you’ve never dyed your hair at home before then the thought of doing this may well be a bit scary – however it could also save you a lot of money. Hair dyes have improved a lot over the years and if it’s not something you’ve tried recently, it might be worth another look, especially if you’re on a tight budget and want to treat yourself to a new a look or cover some of those pesky gray hairs. I’d recommended starting with a colour close to your own hair to begin with and then gradually changing towards a brighter shade (should you want to!) once you feel comfortable with the process.
2. Head to your Local Beauty School
Local beauty schools and colleges often have massive discounts on hair styling and treatments as trainee hairdressers need to practice while they learn their trade. No need to worry though – they will be full supervised by a professional an I often find they take extra care as they are so keen to do well and get your style just right.
3. Opt For Extensions or a Hair Piece
For a totally new look without the fear of ruining the hair you already have you could opt for a wig or hair piece. It’s amazing what you can find online – everything from full hair pieces and wigs, extensions and pre twisted crochet hair, to fake buns and ponytails and everything in between. If you want to look totally different, without the commitment this could be the answer.
4. Learn how to Style
Learning how to style your hair differently could make a huge difference to the way it looks without ever needing to visit a stylist. There a multitude of tutorials available online and you might be surprised how easily you can achieve a whole new look for your hair without even needing to leave the house.
Funky and interesting hair accessories are another fantastic way to utilize what you already have without breaking the bank. Whether you buy them from a local store or online, why not try experiment with something new, such as braidband, donut or even brightly coloured silk flowers.
