The Muse: Some Like it Hot!
Spicing things up this Season
I’ve been getting my hair done at Studio 107 for the past eight years. My stylist is a color expert and I know this because, as picky as I am, I always leave her seat satisfied. So the other day I was sitting in the chair and got to talking to about this season’s biggest hair trends. “We’re seeing a lot of reds” she replied. When most people hear they usually scowl and think of or Annie.
But red is actually a very flattering and beautiful color to wear. I find it intriguing and mysterious. I love to switch things up from season to season, or even day-to-day depending on my mood. I have tried red in the past; however, I quickly came to the conclusion that my personality suits blonde the best.
Natural Reds vs. Vibrant Reds
If you’re hesitant about committing to an all-over shade, start by adding soft red-toned highlights. With medium-for example, you can add a few rosy highlights a shade lighter than your natural color to start out.
It is said that lighter or blonde hair will pick up the hues easier. Since red is the fastest-fading of colors, you must make sure to give your hair that extra bit ofwhen sporting the look. Professional hair products specialized in color care will keep your shade looking ultra shiny and vivid for a long period of time. Personally, I love Redken because that’s what works for me.
Have fun with your hair! It’s like an acrylic painting; you can always put more color over what you already have. So if you’re on the fence about change, I say just go for it! (You never know until you try.)
