Easy, Fast Ways to Change Up Your Look

We know you’re busy. Really, really busy. Your schedule fills up fast, whether you’re shuttling kids around to basketball or piano lessons or traveling for work. We get it, and we know that it might be hard to visit the salon as often as you’d like during busy times.

If you’re short on time but still want to make a change to your look for the upcoming season, it’s totally possible. In fact, we have a few go-to strategies for our clients who have a jam-packed schedule, and some great tips for anyone who wants to look prettier in just a few minutes.

Cut bangs.

If you’re bored with your cut but don’t want to change it too drastically, why not cut bangs? Bangs can totally change up your entire look; go long and thick for a ‘60s style or try baby bangs if you’re feeling daring. Plus, it’s a quick appointment that requires minimal maintenance, and when you’re tired of them, you can just grow ‘em out! Your Cole’s stylist will help you decide on the ideal bangs for your face shape, lifestyle, and hair type for the easiest transition.

Get lash extensions.

Yes, the process itself is long at first—it can take a few hours to get your initial set of lashes applied. However, once they’re applied, you can skip eye makeup and get out the door even faster than usual! Plus, doesn’t everyone want to wake up looking like a Disney princess? We know we do. Another time saver we love? A lash and brow tint!

Change up your go-to lipstick.

It sounds silly, right? However, if you’re usually rocking red or picking pink, simply changing up your trusty shade can transform your face. Love a nude? Try a petal pink. Do you go for bold shades? Why not try a plum purple instead of your favorite red? It’s even more fun when you’re choosing shades from the Oribe beauty line … just saying.

Get a gloss.

A glossing treatment is one of our favorite add-ons to color because it seals in shine and enhances dimension. It’s also a great option for bleach blondes who want to “seal” the look of damaged ends. Shiny hair looks great on everyone, and it’s a subtle tweak that can make a big difference.

Add a hint of color.

Ask your Cole’s stylist about adding a pop of pink (or another shade you love) at your next appointment. We like a subtle hint of pastel on lighter hair or a subtle color melt using red shades. We can even hide color in your under layers so it’s work-appropriate!

Pump up the volume.

In our opinion, big hair is always in. Add texture and volume to your style with a volumizing spray or scrunch in some beachy texture with Bumble and bumble’s classic Surf Spray. You can even keep them on your desk for a boost during the work day!

Get a facial.

Want to bring back your glow? Book a facial to deeply cleanse and exfoliate your skin, leaving you feeling radiant and refreshed. Plus, we offer an Express version so you can get your skincare on in just 30 minutes. What’s better than that? Another option is a Dual Peel, a combination microdermabrasion and chemical peel that will restore your radiance for days on end. People will probably ask if you just got back from vacation—trust us.

We know you probably have somewhere to run off to, so give us a call with any questions! We’re happy to share our personal favorites for changing it up on a time crunch. And if you need products on the fly, remember our Eagan Station and Burnsville salons has curbside pickup for your favorite products!
