Sometimes boredom outwits common sense when looking
to make a change in ones appearance. The urge to do something
radical. Something today. Something . . . to my hair. Many have been
caught in this whirlpool of idealistic thinking – “all my problems may
fade into background noise with magic new hair.” At such a crossroad
of fashion decision, our own exuberance or an enthusiastic friend
with a box of hair color and bleach trumped a planned trip to the
salon. Sadly, the results looked pretty home-spun. You started out
wanting to lift your spirits, but ended up with a look prompting a
shopping spree for hats.
I wish every good thing in life was free, but the best results in
hair color require a qualified, experienced colorist at a
professional salon. Salon visits aren’t cheap and with many pretty
faces on tight budgets, what’s a girl to do if she wants her hair as
stylish as the stars?
Adding highlights and lowlights means touching up
your hair every three to four months instead of a monthly visit to
the solon required for a total color change and double processing.
Temporary color can give a rush of excitement without
the commitment. Many colors wash out in one to three weeks.
Natural colors like dirty blonde are in style for
summer 2008. Plan a few trips to the beach this summer and see what
the sun does.
Go for it
If you have always wanted to try a radically
different color, make some adjustments to your budget and schedule a
consultation with a colorist.
