It might be a good thing to switch things up physically. You might have maintained the same look for a long time, and you don’t dare to change at all. There’s nothing wrong with being safe, especially if you already got used to how you look. However, you might also want to try something new. If you dislike the changes, you can always try something else. If your goal is to surprise your friends, these changes could work.
Chop your hair off
When was the last time you had really short hair? If it’s been a while, you might want to consider doing it now. You will be unrecognisable with this major change. Don’t worry if you dislike your appearance since your hair will grow back.
Grow a beard
Conversely, you can grow a beard and also achieve the same results. With a longer beard, you will drastically transform your looks. You might also gain the attention of the people in the room who don’t know you. If you have the responsibility of leading a meeting, you can command attention with this appearance. Since it takes time to grow a beard, you need to use beard care products. You will hasten the growth using these products and also prevent any potential skin problems.
Try to lose weight
It’s not a drastic change since it takes time, but trying to lose weight is a step in the right direction. However, you need to do it not because you want to impress people in the room. You also shouldn’t do it because you feel pressured to look a certain way. You should lose weight because you think it’s best for your health. You also feel motivated because of how much better your appearance will be when you shed some weight.
Change your fashion style
You can do this change tomorrow. Try shopping for clothes you don’t usually wear, and see where it goes. If you’re always safe with your choice of colours, you can try something bolder this time. You will shock your friends with your fashion choice. Again, the goal is to look better and not because you feel pressured to follow fashion trends. You also need to avoid moving away from a style that represents you since you will feel uncomfortable in the long run.
Try these changes and see how they affect you. Your friends may like your appearance, but they can easily mock your decision too. Nevertheless, it’s brave of you to try making changes. If you’re comfortable with your new look, you can make it permanent. Otherwise, you can experiment with other looks.
The point is that you don’t let anyone dictate how you should look. You also need to be flexible to change, especially if you have allowed yourself to take the safe route for a long time. You can’t let other people’s judgement prevent you. Besides, even if you don’t make these changes, people will keep judging you.
