If you're someone who thrives on change, one of the best ways to do that from a physical standpoint is to throw caution to the wind and drastically change your appearance. This takes a certain amount of confidence and courage, since it means breaking from the current way you do things and doing something new and exciting. There are a few easy -- and not so easy -- ways to drastically change your appearance.


One way to make a drastic change in your appearance is to change the way you dress. If you're someone who's always worn jeans and a t-shirt, start wearing dresses and skirts. Spice up your wardrobe with designer duds or dress down from time to time. Wear bright colors if you typically stick to neutrals. Try something outlandish, and see the reactions you get. To complete a truly drastic change, you must have the confidence to try something that's the polar opposite from what you normally do. If that means fishnet stockings and high heels, go for it!


People are often afraid to do much with their hair, even though most changes aren't permanent. Most women gravitate to conservative styles; they don't want to mix it up too much. However, if you seek a drastic appearance change, changing your hair may be just the trick. If you have long locks, go for a sporty bob. If you've always kept your hair short, try growing it out to see what it would look like. Don't forget you can color your hair, too, something that can drastically change how you look.


Although there are many jokes about drastic makeup practices, women can derive a lot of drama and produce a drastic change in their appearance by altering how they use cosmetics. Some women don't wear makeup at all, so even experimenting with it can produce a drastic change. If you're already a makeup user, you can try false eyelashes, smoky eyeshadow combinations and plucked eyebrows, not to mention different hues of lipstick. Drastic and dramatic changes can be accomplished with makeup; you can even go overboard if you desire.


Exercise can change your body drastically, but it does take more time than the other methods of change. You can use aerobic exercise to lose some weight and take up weight training to build sleek muscles. Going on a healthy diet can also help you to shed pounds, which can have a drastic impact on your appearance. This step takes time and effort, but it's long lasting and provides a healthy change.

Cosmetic Surgery

The most drastic way to change your appearance is by cosmetic surgery. It's also the riskiest and most expensive. You can have your wrinkles botoxed, your breasts enlarged and your fat liposuctioned. If your nose is too bumpy, lumpy or long, that can be fixed, too. Almost any change you want to make to you body can be done via cosmetic surgery. The question you have to answer is...how much do you want done?
