1. The Pixie Cut. It takes a serious amount of guts, but your twenties are prime time for taking the plunge and making the chop. For an added dose of edge, take things a step further and go platinum.

2. Bold Fuchsia Lips. There's something daring yet feminine about bright pink lipstick, calling on the ultimate girly color bold enough to tell the world you've arrived.

3. Texturized Beach Waves. No matter what season, beach waves are a must and the more texture, the better. Don't be fooled into thinking that you need long hair for these waves, though. A short bob haircut looks just as great when it's got loads of texture.

4. Contouring. On an occasion when you know millions of pictures will be taken, contouring will make your cheekbones pop. Use bronzer two shades darker than your natural color underneath your cheekbone and highlighter just above, then blend for the perfect contour.

5. Colored Eyeliner. Whether you add a pop of turquoise on your lower lash line or you line your lids with purple, colored eyeliner will bring out your eye color and take your look up a notch.

6. Pastel Hair. If you don't want to go for an entire pastel head, try some ombre tips or a few randomly placed highlights. Whichever you decide, own the look and be prepared for some awesome compliments.

7. Bold Brows. We haven't all been blessed with full eyebrows, but adding some brow liner or powder to achieve the look will change your entire look for the better. With bold brows, you can pretty much let the rest of your makeup be au naturale.

8. Hair Extensions. When you're frustrated with short hair's inability to grow quickly or you're just planning an outfit that would look much better with longer tresses, hair extensions are the answer.

9. Milkmaid Braids. Keep your bangs out or braid them right in, but either way milkmaid braids are a fun way to dress up your updo.

10. The Long Bob. A haircut can change your life, and if you're ready for a change from longer locks but you're not quite bold enough for the pixie cut, a long bob is the answer. Hollywood has been migrating towards this look lately and every time another celebrity makes the cut, we fall deeper and deeper in love with the long bob.

11. Blue Eyeshadow. Use it as a liner or as a wash over your lids, because blue eyeshadow is such a fun way to coordinate with your outfit and make your eyes pop.

12. Old Hollywood Glamour. A look that's mature and refined, give retro glamour a modern spin with brushed out curls and a bright red lip.

13. Oversized Ballerina Bun. The sister of the top knot, an oversized ballerina bun is a girl's best friend for day old hair and red carpet moments alike.

14. Wild Nail Art. Whether you opt for 3D texture, a half moon manicure, nail art or all of the above, your nails are sure to be Instagrammed and double tapped.

15. A Flower Crown. Perfect for a music festival or a picnic in Central Park, the flower crown is the easiest way to feel like a goddess.

16. Hair Chalking. For the commitment phobes in the hair world, hair chalking is an easy way to add a pop of color to your look without damaging your hair or regretting your hair choices for the day.

18. False Eyelashes. Go crazy and colored for a ton of drama or choose a more natural looking set of lashes to turn up the volume on your usual look.

19. Pin Straight Hair. With a good straightening balm and some anti-frizz serum, nothing looks as sleek as pin straight hair.

20. Stiletto Nails. We love a good wild nail trend, and if you're not trying the stiletto nails trend in your twenties, you're missing out entirely.
