Photographed by Evaan Kheraj.
In terms of clothing, it's common for people to adopt "uniforms." You could, for example, be the girl at the office who sports a version of the silk-blouse-pencil-skirt combo every day. It's even more likely for us to adopt beauty uniforms. Whether you're known for the consistent blowout, top knot, red lipstick, or crazy nail art, you probably have a “thing” going. Hey, that’s great. But, sometimes, this type of dedication can feel uninspired. Why not switch it up from time to time?

Ahead, nail artist Dawn Sterling, makeup artist Moani Lee, and hairstylist Alfredo Llamas identify 12 common beauty ruts, and offer easy and majorly gorgeous ways to fix them. Your new look awaits.
