Go for a low-maintenance haircut
A haircut (especially a bob or lob) can instantly switch up your hair game. So, if you’re someone who gets regular haircuts, then upgrade your mane with a cropped haircut. If you have thick hair, opt for heavy layers and for girls with fine tresses, a classic blunt cut could do wonders.
Streaks of colour for broke days
While you may be itching to go all out with a trendy new hair colour, your wallet is here to hold you back! So, when you’re short on moolah, simply opt for some streaks of colour such as a blood red or electric blue only on the bottom-most layer of your hair. A peppy colour is sure to peek from underneath, thus giving your hair an all-new upgrade.
Accessories for that extra appeal
Wearing your hair in the same old way for months can get boring AF! To add that extra oomph, you can rely on accessories. And, the good news is that hair accessories are currently having a moment in the glamour world. From chunky barrettes to cute headbands and a stack of bobby pins, there are a zillion options for you to add extra spunk to your hairdo.

From celebrities like Janhvi Kapoor and Deepika Padukone to international runway models, everyone has been experimenting with the wet-hair hairstyle, and it is actually the easiest way to switch up your look. All you need to do is work TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Styling on damp hair, starting at your roots.
