Put down the bleach. I repeat, put down the bleach. While creating your own at-home hair salon is tempting, do your hairstylist a favor and just wait these roots out. Instead of going Billie Eilish green, try these 10 activities first. If you still want those bangs after all of this, I support you, sis.
1. GET UP AND WORKOUT
Do a 15 min sculpt or go for a run, this will surely clear your head.

2. TRY COOKING SOMETHING NEW
Dust off those cookbooks and make yourself a gourmet meal. While I cannot support your new career as a hairstylist, I can encourage you to become a chef.
3. CALL A FRIEND (A GOOD FRIEND)
Call someone who will give you an honest response. If they tell you to give those bangs a shot, I’m sorry, but you need new friends.
4. DIY TIE-DYE PROJECT
This will fuel that need to be creative. Grab those old band tees and rubber bands and make something fun.
5. LEARN A TIKTOK DANCE
Sure, maybe we're 30 years old but that doesn't mean we're too old to learn a dance routine, right?
6. MAKE A HAIR MASK
Grab those avocados and coconut oil and whip up a hair mask. Instead of damaging your hair and mental well-being, you’re doing something good for yourself!
7. TRY OUT A MEDITATION APP.
Center yourself and get that blue hair dye out of your mindset.
8. READ A BOOK
Remember all those books you ordered that you never got around to reading because life was so crazy? Life isn’t crazy. Read the books.
9. BUY A COLORING BOOK
Pour yourself a glass of wine, light that BYREDO candle and grab those colored pencils for a soothing and oddly therapeutic activity.
10. ORGANIZE YOUR VANITY
Scroll your favorite organization Instagram and get to work in that bathroom. You’ll feel better with an aesthetically pleasing beauty counter.
