There could be any number of reasons why you want to give yourself a new look or reinvent yourself and lockdown is actually the perfect time to do this as you not only have time to experiment with new looks, get used to a new look and to give yourself plenty of pampering and treatments. Many men have used lockdown as an opportunity to grow a beard and others have used it as a time to lose weight, but what else could you do to come out of lockdown feeling like a new person?
Change Your Hair Colour
Getting a new hairdo is probably one of the most obvious things you can do if you want a new look and there are plenty of home hair dyes you can try, and if you don’t have to go to work, then you even have the opportunity to try out dramatic colours such as pink or blue. If you don’t want to commit to a colour, you can try a semi-permanent one and see how you feel about it.
Whiten Your Teeth
Teeth whitening can make such a difference to your face, and you don’t even realise until you’ve done it. It can make you want to smile more, it can make you look brighter and happier, and if you were conscious about your teeth and your smile before when they are gleaming, you wouldn’t be.
If you have short hair then apart from changing colour there’s not much else you can do, or is there? Why not try hair extensions to see how you look with long locks? You can buy clip-in hair extensions online so that you can try them out and see how you feel about them, then you also have the option to change your look as and when you feel like it.
Use Self Tan
Imagine when you come back from holiday with a tan, don’t you just feel like a new person. Well, while you can’t go on holiday at the moment, what you can do is pretend you have been and give yourself a good tan. If you’re not used to it, then lockdown is the perfect time to practise and make mistakes with orange hands. Then by the time lockdown is over you will not only be a pro at tanning but you’ll have built up a fabulous looking tan and feel confident, sunkissed and sexy.
Try New Clothes
Go shopping online and buy clothes that you might never normally buy. Try new looks and see what you think of them. There is plenty of time to try them on at home, see if they go with clothes that you already have. Get out of your comfort zone and try new things.
Experiment with Makeup Tutorials
This is also the perfect time to get Youtube on and experiment with your makeup. If you’ve never tried contouring, then go for it. It might be something you love and find you’re really good at, or you might find it a complete waste of time – better to know though, right? Spend some time messing about and trying new things because you never know; you could find something just right for you and your new look.
