Bored with your hair? Try these subtle upgrades.

I get it. You've been staying at home for almost a year. Salon trips aren't allowed and going out is part of distant history. Life has been put to a pause. You begin to crave change, and your hair becomes the easy target that will help you satisfy the need to shake things up.

Survey says that the most popular thing to do when stressed or bored is to cut our bangs. But before you reach for the scissors, I'm here to tell you that there are other things you can do to switch up your 'do. Here are my suggestions:

1. Wear cute hair accessories.

The easiest trick in the book is to put on a colorful headband, cute ribbon or a pretty barrette. Don't forget to take a selfie cos you're a cutie.

2. Switch up your hair part.

A five-second trick that will change up your look! Flip your hair to the other side or try a middle part. (Click here for more tips specific to your face shape!)


3. Go for braids!

If Taylor Swift did it for her Evermore album cover, it must be worth trying. You can go with pigtail plaits or braided space buns, for starters.

4. Try heatless curls.

If you're like me who finds using a curling iron time-consuming, try the heatless method. Put damp hair in braids or into a sock bun to reveal soft waves after a few hours.

5. Color your hair.

Choose a shade a bit lighter than your natural hair color. You can DIY it with a box dye, but make sure to use it properly!
