Learn how to change up your hair without the commitment: lighten your hair without a salon trip, rock faux bangs, and fake a chic chop with these tips! | Slashed Beauty

One of my favorite accessories is my hair. I think the style, color and texture can make a big difference to my overall look. It’s always so fun to make a big change, and essentially take on a whole new aesthetic, but for commitment-phobes out there, it can be really difficult following through with a total hair makeover.

If you’re looking to change your hair without commitment, keep reading for some inspiration that you can try easily at home, no strings attached.

You don't have to make a big commitment to change your hair: switch up your look with these easy-- and temporary-- tips! | Slashed Beauty

1. Subtly Change Your Color

One of the hardest hair decisions to make is the color. I, myself, have been toying with the idea of going lighter, but haven’t bit the bullet yet. What I have been using, though, is the John Frieda Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ Subtle Lightening Shampoo, Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ Subtle Lightening Conditioner and Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ In-Shower Lightening Treatment. You can pick these up at Walmart and they are great options to gradually lighten brunette hair and enhance it with a sun kissed glow.

Since brunettes have a lot to consider when trying on a new color (shade, tone, shine) I like that the Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ Shampoo and Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ Conditioner will brighten your hair in the shower without brassiness over the course of 3-5 washes. Plus, you can use the Visibly Brighter™ Treatment for quicker results after one five-minute use. I usually use the treatment before the shampoo and conditioner, and my natural highlights really shine through and give me an overall lighter and brighter brunette shade— perfect for summer and great for just trying on a new hair color without committing or damaging my hair.

2. Change Your Part

The easiest way to change up your hair style with no effort at all: change your part! This little change can actually make a huge difference in how your face is framed, and is much easier to reverse than a haircut gone wrong. I typically wear my hair parted to the left, but when I’m feeling like switching it up, I try a middle part which I think makes my face look longer and more oval.

3. Faux Bob

This one is a go-to of mine when the sun is strong and I’m dying to get the hair off my neck. Plus, I always get a kick out of tricking my friends. All you have to do is tie off your hair with an elastic a few inches up from your hair’s ends (depending on how long you want your bob). Then, tuck the ends up and behind the rest of your hair. Secure with a few bobby pins, and you’ve just given yourself a temporary chic chop.

4. Faux Bangs

When I was younger, if I didn’t have bangs, I wanted them. And when I had them, I wanted desperately to grow them out. Here’s the perfect way to test the waters without taking the plunge! Pull your hair up as if you were going to do a high pony tail, and pull it through an elastic. On the second wrap, don’t pull your hair all the way through, though! Let the elastic go, leaving enough hair out to reach at least mid-forehead. Brush it forward and use a flat iron if needed to shape it against your forehead. Add a cute headband to disguise the hair as bangs.

    Those are some great tips. I need to try the faux bob. I enjoyed my bob when I was wearing my hair short and I miss it, sometimes but I’m not chopping my hair off. 😀

    Great post! Right now I am just glad I am back to being brunette. I was blonde for 9 months and no one really liked it, even my husband who suggested I do it. LOL

    I like them all but the faux bangs look faux so I’d avoid that look personally.
