Why does changing your hair colour boost your confidence?
The oldest saying of “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” is something most can agree on, but in all honesty, I personally think it’s her hair. It’s not just about the style, cut or length but more about the hair colour itself.
Many of us, women and men, turn to colouring our hair because we want to try something new, while others just want to feel more beautiful. Colouring our hair is known to drastically boost our confidence, and here’s why.
These days we are always scrolling through our phones, looking for the latest trends and wham we come across a woman with absolutely to die for hair. You love the way it looks on her, the way her hair flows so effortlessly around her face, you can’t help but imagine what that hair colour will look like on you, right?.
Women and men everywhere have had these kinds of thoughts and triggered some inspiration when it comes to their hair. For me personally, most of the time I like to keep my hair changes pretty subtle.
I have tried blonde, I definitely had fun with it but I always tend to go back to my roots. Being a brunette, and for other brunettes out there, we have so many amazing colours we can play around with to really enhance our look completely.
After a couple of months of rocking au naturel, I felt it was time to add some warmth to my locks.
Also with us heading into the colder months, it seemed pretty fitting. I chatted to Nicky Sellner, Owner of Impressions Hair & Beauty about a little colour freshen. From start to finish it really is only a pleasure dealing with Nicky, she is so professional, understanding of what you want and accommodating to your individual needs, it is always such a fabulous experience visiting her salon.
The team is friendly and welcoming, the salon is really lovely, the atmosphere is relaxing and I must add the cupcakes are always delish! I always leave the salon feeling absolutely radiant and my whole head of hair looks like a money piece in itself.
If you’re a fan of spicing up your colour, here are 5 reasons why changing your hair colour gives you that boost in confidence:
– Change is always good and healthy.
We all know the saying “A change is as good as a holiday”. Sticking to what you know becomes a little mundane after a while. Stepping out of your comfort zone is where the real fun begins.
Revamping your hair colour makes you feel like a whole new person. It gives you this overwhelming sense of happiness, that you can’t help but smile every time you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror. It makes you feel like you can conquer the day or slay any outfit you try on.
“A woman who changes her hair, is about to change her life.” – Coco Chanel
– A little fun never hurt no one.
Experimenting with different hair colours can be a lot of fun. With so many hair colours to choose from, I don’t blame you for wanting to try them all at once. Just imagine? The world of colour is an adventure and it’s one you won’t regret taking. Just take it.
– Makes you feel beautiful
Can we call ‘switching up your hair colour’ beauty therapy? It’s definitely a thing. If you don’t take the time to redo your roots or brighten up, the hair fairy spirals out of control. It has been psychologically proven that colouring your hair makes you feel beautiful, because if you look good and then ultimately you feel good too.
Maybe you did it to cover some greys or you needed a change, either way, a new hair colour just makes you feel so good about yourself. It’s all about discovering who you are and the statement that you want to make to the world. It’s more than just hair, it lets people know who you are. (I love this saying)
– Shine bright like a diamond
Thanks Rihanna. You are all now singing it too now, aren’t you?
A new hair colour, glaze or treatment adds that extra shine to your hair leaving your luscious waves full of vibrance. “It doesn’t matter if your life is perfect, as long as your hair colour is.” – Stacy Snapp Killian
– Brings out your personality
Life can get pretty busy sometimes, and we often tend to lose the fun side to it. Changing our hair colour can bring out our personality. It’s a reminder to ourselves that we are never really lost, we just sometimes need a little help figuring out who we are in this great big world.
