Right now the focus will be on your face a lot more, use this to your advantage!
If you do decide to rock your own hair out again, I totally agree with the person that mentioned playing it up with makeup, bright lips or bright eyes just get this extra oomph with hair that is out of the face. If you aren't feeling the makeup thing now is the best time to flaunt groomed eyebrows and a good skin care regimen as it will be more noticeable.
I also agree with the mention of sunglasses to finish the look in the summer. Also, switching up with sunglasses and having them rest on your hair can create a different look for your hair.
You can play with hair accessories to spice things up. A really cute sophisticated hair clip or a cute flower near your ear that matches your outfit will change your look from time to time.
Really cute berets where you leave a bit of hair out in the front can give you a different look as well.
Scarves(especially satin/silk) can change things up as well, you can wear them as a classy headband or cover your hair with them in a sophisticated head wrap style.
You can give your hair a different look by teasing it into a different appearance now and then with products or styling tools.
Play it up with different earrings, people will be quicker to notice them now, so use this to your advantage as well.
