13 Hairstyles To Try Before You Die

Posted: Updated:

As someone who switches up their hairdo two to three times a month, I'm a huge advocate for taking hair risks. And not just because you can always grow or color it back, but I believe there is something extremely liberating about changing your hair.

In American society, women and young girls are often judged and ridiculed for their hairstyles. As a result, we either jump on the mass beauty bandwagon and copy each other, or we cower in fear of not truly loving what we have on top. But that all ends right here, right now.

So I encourage you to take these 13 hair risks before you die. Trust me, you'll feel and look amazing!
