Changing your hair doesn't need to be terrifying anymore.

Hair is a funny thing; it's with you all the time and you become so used to it and comfortable with it. At the same time, you can begin to get completely sick of it, but remain afraid of changing it.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - If you make a drastic change to your hair, you're stuck with it. That's it, you have to wait months and months for any length or normality to be restored to your locks.

With some help from BuzzFeed, we present 10 ways you can change your boring hair and go back to the way it previously was the next day.

1. A Faux Bob

This is perfect if you have that random thought of chopping all of your hair off, but you are afraid of what you will look like. Just tie a hairband about a quarter of the way up from the end of your hair, twist your hair underneath and pin it.

2. Parts

Simply changing your part dramatically changes your hair. You can do the straight in the center part, the slightly off-center, or the side part. My favorite is the side part.

3. Slick Back

Slicking your hair back opens up your face. "I recommend using L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray for hold; and for spray-on shine, I live Aveda Brilliant or L'Oreal Professional Perfect Shimmer," Ted Gibson, hair stylist, told BuzzFeed Life.

4. Kool-Aid Dye

Although this tends to work and look best on blonde hair, anyone can try it. Mix Kool-Aid with conditioner and place it on the lighter strands of your hair. It will stain your hair temporarily.

5. Fake Layers

This may be the easiest tip here today; comb all of your hair over to one side of your face. That's it, this will create a layered look on the more full side, because naturally your hair combed over will be shorter on the other side.

6. Flatironed Braids

No longer do you have to braid your wet hair and wait for it to dry in order to get a wavy look. You can run a flat iron over your braided hair. Wait for it to cool off, and then shake your hair out.

7. Slicked High Ponytail

Use your natural hair. If it's always down, pull it up in a nice high ponytail.

8. Gloss It

Glossing your hair can change the color slightly. "A gloss is different from a dye because it stains the hair without penetrating the follicle," explained Gibson. "Glosses can give you a great shine that will only last a few shampoos, which makes it totally noncommittal."

9. Bang Bang Bang

The bang trend comes and goes. Will your face look good with bangs? What happens if you cut them and they totally look horrible? This trick from hairstylist Sunnie Brook will help you get bangs today and leave them at home tomorrow. "I do this trick with clients who have long hair where I pull their hair up into a high ponytail and wrap the hair around the ponytail so that the ends fall on the forehead to create bangs." You can also use clip-on bangs.

10. The Wet Look

"If I'm going for the wet look, I use a combination of oil and gel," celebrity hairstylist Clariss Rubenstein tells BuzzFeed Life. "I use a little too much oil at first to make the hair look wet (this also keeps the gel from penetrating the hair and making it stiff), then I apply gel to help the hair stay in place."

11. Clip-ins

Way less committal than an actual weave, clip-in extensions can make your hair longer, fuller, layered, or highlighted. "I always do clip-on bangs for my celebrity clients," says Rubenstein. "They are photographed constantly on the red carpet, but they can't commit to a major change."
