How to Look Good for High School: 11 Steps

Look Good for High School

Uniforms, policies, rules, and teachers all put restrictions on your style. This article will show you how to bend the rules and look good for school anyway, without breaking them.


1. Make sure that you don't change yourself too fast. You should only change a couple of things at a time, otherwise you might annoy your teachers.


2. Start the night before. Shave (or wax, if you prefer). Brush your hair just enough to get out the day's knots.


3. Make sure you have the products and hair accessories that you need.


4. Start the morning by showering. Even a quick shower will make you feel better and refreshed.


5. Have a fluffy, warm towel to wrap around yourself. Comfort yourself.


6. Moisturize and treat your face for acne, if you need to.


7. Get dressed. Play some music while you do so. Upbeat songs and genres are good for waking yourself up in the morning, but you should listen to whatever you like.


8. Accessorise. If your school allows you to wear jewelry, then do so! Stay away from bright colours. If your skin is a light colour, go for silvers; if you have darker skin, go for golds. These don't stand out as much, but they really add class!

  • As a suggestion, wear two simple silver bracelets (nothing too chunky) and a thin silver chain with a small pendant. Stick to one style to tie it together.


9. Apply makeup. Never go over the top with it, since it just makes you look plastic-like and fake. Natural is the way to go, especially in summer. Some concealer, a hint of blush, and some lip balm or lip gloss works well. You can add a little eyeliner if you want to draw attention to your eyes, but stay away from anything too thick.


10. Keep yourself smelling clean. Always use deodorant, and try to get a summery fruity perfume. Be careful about how much you use.


11. Make sure your teeth and breath are clean.



  • Take a compact mirror and some lip gloss to school for touch ups!
  • Wake up a little bit earlier to be ready.
  • A summery tan always looks nice, but to stay safe and avoid skin cancer, try using tanning lotion instead!
  • With summer comes swimming, so make sure you treat or wash your hair after swimming, since the chlorine can do some damage to it!
  • For oily roots, tie a scarf around your hair—an instant pick-me-up!
  • Use fruity body lotion or body wash for the summertime.
  • Quickly turn the water cold after your shower, just before you get out. It may be a little uncomfortable, but it is really refreshing!
  • Clean off your makeup when you get home. Give your face a chance to breathe.
  • Hair curlers and straighteners are often used to perfect a style.
  • Always remember the best accessory: a smile!
