How to Get a New Look Over the Summer. Many girls dream of coming back from summer vacation and wowing their classmates on the first day of school. Summer vacations typically last about three months, plenty of time to get a new look to impress your fellow students.
Kick your workout routine up a notch during the summer months. Try to spend at least an hour a day, three days a week doing cardio. Mix it up with some weight training two days a week.
Donate your old clothes and go shopping for a new wardrobe. If you want a preppy look, get your clothes from stores like American Eagle and Gap. For an edgier punk rock look, shop at Hot Topic.
Spend some time in the sun. A nice, even tan can complement your new look. If you don't want the sun exposure, use a spray on tan or bronzer.
Change your hairstyle to go with your new look. Copy a celebrity hairstyle or work with a stylist to get a new cut.
Play around with different types of makeup to change up your look. Buy inexpensive products from companies like Jane until you discover a makeup style that you like.
Go to the salon. Make an appointment at a full service salon a few days before school starts. Get a manicure, pedicure and an eyebrow wax.
