4 Makeover Ideas That You Should Do After A Breakup
Makeovers can’t help you get over your ex—but they can still be a good starting point for your healing process. Psychology professor Renee Engeln explains that beauty transformations can convey that you’re making a radical change in your life. In fact, Engeln states that getting a haircut can mark a new beginning after a significant life event, such as a breakup.
However, you can also simply do makeovers to care for yourself and feel better during this rough time. So if you’ve just gone through a breakup, here are some makeover ideas that you should try:
Change your hairdo
If you feel the itch to change your hairstyle after a breakup, you’re not alone. Even celebrities go to salons to change their hairstyle or color to mark a new chapter in their love lives. Selena Gomez chopped her long locks and got a textured bob when she and Justin Bieber called it quits in 2018. Meanwhile, Jennifer Aniston went from brunette to her signature golden honey-blonde hair color after she ended her marriage to Brad Pitt. Likewise, you can experiment with your hair color or try out a daring hairstyle as you start your healing process from your breakup.

Do you think that changing your hairdo is too drastic? You can pamper yourself by doing a makeover on your nails instead. You can treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure session, or paint your nails on your own using gel polish to ensure your nails look beautiful and fresh for weeks. These gel polishes also keep your nails strong, making it easier to grow your nails. Once your nails get longer, you can do another makeover by changing your nail shape to flattering silhouettes like oval and almond or experimenting with a daring coffin or stiletto shape.
Try a new fashion style
Getting rid of clothes that remind you of your ex can be quite therapeutic. Once you get rid of these clothes, you can update your wardrobe and make yourself look polished, put-together, and confident in this new chapter of your life by trying a modern classic fashion style. This fashion style is also practical because you can invest in classic wardrobe pieces that never go out of style, such as the little black dress, tailored trousers, or versatile blazers. You can even buy A-line dresses and pencil skirts because these pieces can enhance your silhouette and make you look sexier post-breakup.
Work on your revenge body
Need motivation to work out? Try laying out a plan to achieve the revenge body you’ve always wanted! Stress expert Dr. Dan Guerra states that exercising is good for newly single people because it can stimulate the production of feel-good neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and epinephrine. As a bonus, moderate exercise can keep you looking fit and healthy after your breakup. Once you get the hang of it, Dr. Guerra states that you will likely have more confidence and better health as you enter a new relationship.
Makeovers can help you feel better during a painful breakup. So, go ahead and treat yourself to these makeovers as you start a new chapter in your life! If you're looking for new nails to add to your new look, check out our catalog of gel polishes so you can enjoy the new you.
