New Year, New You!

New Year, New You!

You’ve gotten through the holidays and you and your family have created your goals for the New Year. Now, you’re thinking about how you can make a few changes in your appearance to make a statement for next year. Here are a few suggestions to help you create a new look for the New Year.

When the New Year rolls in, I find myself wanting to make a few changes to my appearance. With all of the new fashion trends, makeup, and hairstyles that come with each new year, many women find themselves wanting to do a New Year’s makeover. I think it’s a fun thing to do and here are 5 simple things that you can do to get a fresh look for the next year.

Try a new shade of lipstick or eye shadow

Your lips and eyes are the things that people notice first when they glance at your face. So one of the quickest ways to change your look is to change your choice of makeup. Try getting a free consultation at one of the department stores to learn what colors complement your skin tone. Then try one of the suggested colors that you wouldn’t ordinarily use and you’ll experience a dramatic change.

Lighten or darken your hair

Changing your hair color works wonders for changing your look. My African friend dyed her hair blonde last week and she looks amazing. You don’t have to do an extravagant hair change because even subtle changes in hair color often makes a dramatic difference. If you’re not comfortable changing your hair color completely, try just adding a few highlights. This can do wonders for changing your appearance.

Change your hair length

The other thing that you can do with your hair is change the length. If you’ve ever wanted to cut it shorter, this is the perfect time to chop off your tresses and rock a short style. Similarly, if you’ve been dreaming of longer hair, you can always add some extensions to make your hair fuller and longer.


Accessories can dramatically change your look almost instantaneously. Take advantage of the post-Christmas sales and pick up a few colorful accessories that you can wear throughout the year. Necklaces, bracelets, anklets, head bands, flowers for your hair, hats, and anything else that expresses your personality are great picks. Splurging on yourself a little bit in this area is so worth it to create your new look.

Buy matching shoes

Nice shoes really do finish off an outfit. If you really want to update your look, try buying a few pair of shoes that match your tops and accessories. This can really level up your look - and again, you can buy some beautiful shoes inexpensively during the post-Christmas sales.

Changing your look for the New Year can really be fun and is something that a lot of women really enjoy doing. Whether you change your hair, makeup, shoes, or something else, there are several things that you can do to create a new look for this new year.
