Ever get bored? How do you spice up your curly hair?

So sometimes I get bored of just the basic keeping my curly hair down and curled or half up with a clip, or up in some casual little updo and the big one, which rarely happens...straightening my curly hair. What do you ladies do to spice up your curly hair?
What else is there?
3b spirals, fine texture, normal porosity, dense

Nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.
-wabi-sabi

I dye it or cut it.

I used to be crazy with the color. My hair bounced back for a long time. The best thing I ever did ended up out of a bad highlight job. My sister accidently pulled too much hair through the cap and then I left the bleach on too long so I had big white streaks against brown hair. I decided to go with it and found this great purpley brown color. I added streaks of that and of a red (that turned out hot pink). I kept this look up for a long time and it was pretty damn awesome.

Maybe I should go a little crazy again to break out of my rut.

Side ponytail, low pigtails, braids, side braid, clipping back on side, sparkly hair jewels...I like being prepared and planning things, so I tend to make up hair schedules...like, on Monday, leave it down, Tuesday, half up, so if I oversleep I have a nice reference to get back to.

Ahem. Not insane, I swear.
made up of 98.822% silliness!!

I had a similar issue, I was getting kinda bored with down/halfup/ponytail. Then, I was watching Lost a few weeks ago and I thought this updo was cute. I've just had issues getting it as tight as in the photo, but at least it works with my shorter hair

It's also fun to do with just half your hair and leave the underside curling underneath. If I just do half my hair, I secure it with a jaw clip. Easy peasy.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
I wore mine in braided pigtails today. I like that I was able to leave my hair soaked in conditioner without anyone knowing that I was doing a DT. I did get a few Pippi Longstocking references, though (mostly from my husband).
