So paying attention to our appearance is necessary without being a self-obsessive personality. Here are 15 things or mistakes of a messy look you should pay attention to.

1Hair roots


If your hair roots are darker or lighter than the rest of your mane it gives a very bad first impression especially since it looks a bit unkempt and uncared for. Different colored roots create an impression of being ungroomed.

If you decide to change your entire hair colour make sure you start off with your roots first and dye them regularly thereon. Secondly, or you can go ‘au natural’ by not dying your hair at all if it is cumbersome. You can sport your natural hair color instead.

2Wearing hair ties on a wrist


For all the busy ladies who like doing their hair on the go, it can ruin your look wearing a hair tie on your wrist. Please do not confuse it with a bracelet or worse a watch because it’s supposed to be on your hair and nowhere else. A simple solution is to wear pretty bracelets and use a  hair tie for what’s it’s meant for….your hair!

3The topknot


A top knot has always been a girl’s best friend during all those bad hair days. Well, that rough hair knot at the top of your head with unruly strands of hair still poking out from all sides is ok when you’re at home.

Invest in a dry shampoo, a small handy comb and keep a couple of bobby pins in your bag always. Use them for a clean professional hair look. Secondly, you can tie your hair into a slightly high ponytail for a bouncy look or better still braid your hair which always works for all!

5The wrong foundation or powder shade


The common mistake that most ladies make is to select wrong foundation shades which do not match with their skin color and by it shows! After application, your face starts looking so different than your neck; it would appear as if your face has been photoshopped!

When you are buying a foundation, be patient and try a sample first on your chin and see if it matches the color and shade of your neck.
