Change is always difficult for us, yet it’s so great to try something new. Love long hair? Keep your long locks and make a slight change by adding layers. Maybe soft, face framing layers or long layers to add movement or shorter layers to bounce up your natural curls. If you like shorter lengths, try a bob; surprisingly it could save you time on your daily routine with showering and hair care. Don’t like it short, remember hair grows back in no time. Even some bang action could change your whole look. Small tweaks can just be the thing you need if you’re not ready for a drastic change.
