Apple bottom jeans, boots with the fur... All that and the whole club still isn't looking at you? We're definitely all about personality and being who you truly are, but you're probably missing something out, a good haircut that keeps it fresh and still totally spells YOU. If you're not sure where to start on this transformation, here are 10 tips and tricks that we've got for you:
If you're the kind of girl that perpetually always had long hair, going for a dramatic and obvious change by chopping your hair is like a ticket to becoming the talk of the town, and saying "Hey, look at me please!"
Don't worry, having short hair does not mean masculine. With the right cut, a short hairstyle can make you look youthful and will definitely surprise your crush with the new look.
Short hair is also really easy to maintain, and perfect for the hot weather here. Cop this refreshing look at The Space Korean Hair Salon

Creating layers is THE style to go for, if you want to keep your long hair, but also add some subtle differences. It's a really romantic and effortless look that helps you to frame your face better, bringing all the attention to your gorgeous face, as it should be!, it is always a good thing to give your hair some layers. Layers can make you look very feminine by framing your face better and highlighting all of your best features.
Getting a fringe cut is a great way to switch up your vibe and look without saying goodbye to too much hair if you just can't seem to part with it. Fringes help to effortlessly frame your face and draw attention to where you want your crush to look. Depending on the style that you want, it can be a dramatic or subtle change, but one things for sure, it'll definitely surprise your friends, and probably your crush too!

A soft perm is the epitome of a romantic look that suits the soft aesthetic that we all dream of, and the best thing? You won't need to cut your hair for this. If you have straight hair, like most of us do in Singapore, getting a beautiful perm is a really great way for others to notice you and your hair transformation, especially with all that volume it gives.
It's pretty easy to maintain a soft perm, you'll just need to put in a little more attention when blow-drying your hair. So yes, that means you won't need to wake up extra early to curl your hair every morning, or spend nights watching videos on how to use the curling iron either! What a save right?

A highlight is a safer option if you do not wish to change the colour of hair completely. And it doesnt require as much bleach as compared to a full head colour, if you're choosing light colours of course. Pick the right shade, and you can say goodbye to your whitening cream. That's right, highlights can help brighten your complexion, and add dimension to your hair, giving it a much more voluminous look.

Don't ask us why, but many interviews have cited that guys find girls that tuck their hair behind the ear really attractive. If your crush is also a fan of that, half-up half-down hairstyle is the perfect look for you since it's a good mix of cute and youthful, but also feminine. If you want a slightly messier, effortless look, you could even leave a few strands of hair by the side for a more face-framing effect.
Occasionally tuck it back behind when they're looking, and you'll be the main character of the sweet rom-com you're obsessing over.
Flamingo Hair Studio @ Tiong Bahru has beautifully created this look with rope twists and loose strands beside the ear for a really sweet look.
Mane Made @ The Midtown Hougang has a different rendition on this look that's simple to replicate, but looks sophisticated. Plus, you'll get to show off your peekaboo colours too!
Braided hairstyles aren't just the typical braided ponytail, or the two french braids that you were forced to tie for school. In fact, you can get really creative and fun with all the different types, like french, dutch, waterfall, fishtail... trust me, it's endless. All you need is a little bit of imagination, and you can switch up your look dramatically without even cutting or colouring your hair!

Riding on the half-up trend, COVO Japanese Hair Salon @ Outram Park Keong Saik Rd created an elegant look by wrapping the braids across.
Who doesn't love it when things have a fragrant scent? Your smell is one of the most important things about yourself that you should pay attention to. A distinctive smell makes you memorable to another person. So choose your hair spray products wisely or opt for hair mists to make your crush turn heads with your scent. Make sure not to put too much, just enough to give others a whiff when you walk past, and most importantly, keep your crush wanting more!
Keep the top tip in mind: Spray, Delay, and Walk Away!
And most importantly, keep your smile on! Nothing looks better on you than your smile, so chin up princess!
