Is it true blondes have more fun? Maybe.
Confidence can come from many places. Whether it's from deep inside like our personality or how great we are at making friends, or it's from the outside like our amazing makeup skills (thank you, contouring!).
However, a lot of us see ourselves in harsh light, which means we don't always have a lot of confidence in our appearance. Sometimes, we need a little boost or a little change to kick-start our journey into accepting ourselves and being confident in who we really are.
Our favorite way to do that? Changing up our look of course! Chopping off those locks and updating the color is a great way to feel better about yourself and look amazing while doing it.
A new hairstyle or color gives any girl that extra oomph they've been looking for, especially when we need that little boost of confidence.
When we pick up a fashion magazine and see all these beautiful celebs rocking new hairstyles and vibrant colors, it makes us feel like we can pull it off, too (and why shouldn't we?!). Thanks to all of those celebrities that inspire us every day with their confidence to show off a new hairstyle and look amazing no matter what, we can be more empowered to do something totally out of the box — like going blonde — and look bangin' doing it.
Take Ashley Olsen for instance. She just went back to PLATINUM blonde after a long time going natural. Ashley "was ready to go brighter and lighter," said her colorist, Lorri Goddard in an interview with People. "Blonde changes are especially fun in the summertime."
Hey, maybe she wanted to funk things up, right? Every girl should be able to rock any color and any style — and feel sexy as hell doing it.
That's why we pulled together a list of some of our favorite celebrities to show us how to change up our looks with easy confidence.
These celebs rock blonde hair just as well as any color they grew naturally before. They look confident as hell and prove that a little change can go a long way. We don't know about you, but after checking these styles out we're ready to run to our stylist and go blonde, too!
