Confidence is one of those things that it can be incredibly hard to come by a lot of the time. It can sometimes feel that, if you lack confidence, you’re going to end up feeling that way forever. Well, that simply isn’t true. The reality is that confidence is something that is constantly shifting for just about everyone and there are plenty of things that can help you increase your confidence levels. One of the very best ways to bring your confidence back is to change up your look in some way. That might seem like a small change but here are a few things that you can try that really can make a big difference.
Change your hair
Your hair is one of the best ways in which you can express yourself in different ways. This is because not only is it one of the most immediately obvious and distinct parts of your body, but it’s so easy to change. Making changes to your body can be a challenge, but if you want less hair then you just need to head down to the hair salon and go for a chop! Perhaps you might want to try a new colour or a new style. Whatever it is that you decide, it can be incredibly freeing to make such an easy, yet significant change to the way you look.
Switch up your wardrobe
Of course, you might not want something quite as long lasting as a new hairstyle. That might be because you’re not sure if you’re ready to commit to it, or simply because you want to be able to try new things all the time. If that’s the case then changing up your wardrobe can be perfect. Perhaps you’ve found yourself sticking to the same old outfits and styles for a while? Well, then why not take things in the opposite direction next time you’re buying clothes. And you can even use your clothes to express something about yourself or be an ally with things like some colourful pride socks! And the best thing is that you can always slip those old, comfortable clothes back on whenever you feel the need.
Experiment with makeup
Makeup certainly isn’t for everyone, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be a fantastic way for you to express yourself. A lot of people assume that makeup is only ever meant to cover things up, but you can often do far more with it than that. Trying different styles and colours can help you be much more expressive with the way that you look than you’d ever otherwise been able to. And the very best part? If you’re no longer feeling your look, all you have to do is wash it off and start over!
Of course, not every look is going to work for everyone. However, you’re never really going to know what’s right for you unless you do some experimenting with your style. If something doesn’t work, don’t worry! You can just try something new. One of the best ways to end up losing confidence is to stick to the same things over and over until you’re completely bored with them.
Oòoo la la – I’m lovin the style – time to change
What an excellent list of suggestions! As well as giving confidence, making those changes would be fun.
