I think it’s safe to say that most of us want to stand out from the crowd. We want to look the best we can at all times – not only to catch the attention of others, but also for our own sake. Nowadays, it’s easier than ever to blend into the crowd. It’s easy to get drawn into trends and the availability of mass produced products mean many of us end up looking similar to one another for the sake of low cost and convenience. But there are various things you can do to change up your look and make yourself feel unique and glowing again. Here are a few you might like to consider.

Shop in Alternative Stores
Sure, high street fashion is fast and simple. If you see something you like, it’ll be available in a host of sizes and one is likely to fit you. Prices are affordable and the quality tends to be fine. But if you want something a little different, you might want to start shopping in alternative stores. Vintage stores have some great one-off pieces, as do charity stores. You might even want to have some clothes tailor made!

Also, mixing/ incorporating styles & trends you don’t usually wear into your every day style. If you have a more classic style and don’t think you can pull off a super trendy right now look, start small & subtle. Don’t change your entire style just add a different style of shirt than you normal would wear, or a different wash of denim. Adding in small pops of color if you don’t usually wear a lot of color.

Physical Changes
I want to prefaces this with saying that physically changing your appearance is something you should 100% do for yourself. If it makes you feel better then do it but please don’t make major changes just because everyone else seems to be doing it or because you’re comparing yourself to others. There are all sorts of beauty procedures available on the market now. They range in how drastically they’ll change your appearance. Of course, you really don’t need to change anything about your physical appearance at all. But there are treatments that can help you better align with your ideals and boost your confidence if you do want to try them out. This could include anything like minor treatments like waxing, eyelash extensions, and eyebrow threading; those wanting to try the latter may wish to check out eyebrow threading in Arlington, if they’re in the area. This hair removal process can leave your brows more aesthetically pleasing as well as giving you a more polished and inviting look. Physical changes could also extend to Breast Enhancement and other more invasive procedures. Remember to fully think through and procedure before having it carried out and to make sure you know the ins and outs and that it’s completely right for you. Also only use professionals to carry your treatments out. Never feel afraid to request proof of necessary qualifications and always seek.

Changing your hairstyle can make you feel like a completely new person. Whether isn’t chopping off your long locks, adding some layers, even changing your hair part can be a fun and easy way to switch up your look.

Piercings
Of course, piercings aren’t for everyone and you’ll have to make sure you have them done by a reputable individual or company. You will also have to maintain them with good aftercare techniques. But if you want a little extra sparkle or a statement piece of jewellery in your life, they could be the answer to your wishes. Take a look at the wide variety of piercings you can try out. You might want some simple studs in your ears, you might want a septum piercing. Whatever you go for, embrace it!
My sister and I went on her birthday to both get a new ear piercing, I got my third hole done on both ears and now that my birthday is almost here in September I think we’re going to go and get another new piercing together. It’s like becoming a sister birthday tradition!

The thing I personally like about piercings is that they aren’t permanent, if you change your mind you just take it out. So many of my friends and even my sister have tattoos but I just can’t commit to one, heck I can’t even commit to using the same purse for an entire week.

There are plenty of other things you can do to change and spruce up your current look. But hopefully, the above ideas have kickstarted your imagination and might suit you down to a tee! Always embrace your individuality and stand out from the crowd!
