48 Start slideshow

As August dwindles down and September 1 is looming, there is a “back to school” chill in the air. And while we are very envious of all the co-eds heading back to school, the fact that we are stuck in the office hasn’t stopped us at browsing the web for some inspiring beauty looks. From plum lips to pixie cuts, these are the first day of school beauty looks that we would attempt if we were going back.

While the standard back-to-school prep involves a trip to the salon, a few new notebooks and a brand new wardrobe — we recommend being a bit more adventurous. Yes, maybe you’ll look back on some of these celebrity trends and hide the photos from your children. But these are your college years so why not buzz off a side of your head or dye your tips blue? Maybe these styles won’t work for everyone, but take a look at the slideshow above and we promise you’ll find at least one beauty trend worth testing out on your first day back.
