New Year, New You: A 2017 Makeover To-Do List

Well, week one of 2017 is on the books, and we’ve officially survived the new year! Now that we’re finally done picking up the aftermath of your New Year’s Eve party (and take down your Christmas tree already!), it’s time to show 2017 how ready we are to totally rock this year. There are some challenges ahead, so we need to kick into gear and prepare ourselves to grab this year by the horns.

Dust off your outside shoes, it’s time to get out into the world and show it you’re not messing around!

1. Get Your 2017 Hairstyle

The start of a new year is the perfect time to try out a new look. Whether your hair is long, short, or in between, you can get a style that will change the way you look at yourself. Even if you’re not ready to see any scissors, a simple styling session will revitalize you for the new year.

If you’ve got longer hair and are ready for a real change, consider getting a “lob” aka long bob. Hair stays almost the same length all the way around, but the bob lands right above or at your shoulders. It’s extremely versatile and can be worn up or down for casual or elegant evening looks.

If you have curly hair, consider straightening it, or giving it a different cut for a new look. If you’re ready for a big change, get your hair cut using the Devacut method.

Those of us who aren’t necessarily ready to make a big change: let me introduce you to Drybar. Stepping into this salon, you think you’ll just get a quick style by a pro. Upon walking out, you are 99% more Cindy Crawford.

They don’t cut, they don’t color – they just take your hair from basic to brilliant. Grab a coffee, and go treat yo’self. Don’t forget to bring one of our Drybar coupons, you could get 22% off!

2. Redo Your Wardrobe for 2017

Since your hair is going to look incredible, you might as well fashion yourself with a new wardrobe – or at least a couple of outfits.

The world needs confident women in 2017, so pick up some pieces that make you feel like a secret superhero. I recommend heading over to Shopbop. Their cool girl meets rebel fashion aesthetic fits perfectly with 2017’s rugged social landscape.

Spring is just around the corner, so that leather jacket and those skinny jeans have a totally valid reason to be in your shopping cart right now. This year, you’re gonna be the girl who gets the clothes she loves!

…When they’re on sale, of course. Use a Shopbop promo code and take up to 30% off of your order. Further validation for your New Years fashion makeover. You’re welcome.

3. Get Your Fitness in Order

It’s going to be impossible to take on the world if you’re not taking care of your body and maintaining your health. Studies have shown that regular exercise can not only make your body happy, but it can improve your memory and thinking skills. So, by working out regularly, you can not only gain a superhero-like physique, but also superhero-like mental clarity.

Work out at home with a classic workout video, or head to a local community class for yoga, a martial art, cycling, or another indoor fitness activity.

During winter, indoor workouts can not only keep you warm, but also keep you busy. When it’s icy outside, becoming stir-crazy is as easy as… well, not being able to leave your house. Spending that time getting your body in tip-top shape is a great way to pass the time.

On the other hand, if you love the versatility of a gym, check out 24 Hour Fitness. With hundreds of locations across the country, and a door that’s always open, you have very few excuses not to go. Pay as low as $29.99 per month with a 24 Hour Fitness coupon! Start changing your life, and make 2017 the year that you become a superhero.
