Frizzy and Sun-damaged Hair is so last summer!
As much as some of us dislike cold temperatures, I’m glad Fall is almost here for one reason: my hair. This is the kind of weather where blow-drying and managing my hair in general becomes less of a hassle. For many of us, the fall also means new look; new hair cut, hair style, new hair color. Exciting!
For some reason, I really like to go at least one shade darker during the fall and winter seasons. I know a lot of women actually do this, too, year after year. I just love the switch (not to follow trends) and I like the way darker hair brings up my brown eyes against the pale-time season. Since I don’t fake-tan, my light hair can make me look like a Latin ghost in this season.
I think I can come up with at least three different colors that I have done in my life: blond, red, and black. I can say that they’ve all looked good in their own ways. Switching hair color constantly may damage and dry your hair though, so I try to do it only twice a year (when necessary).
Blondes and brunettes are one popular color, but what other colors have you dyed your hair?
I actually know girls my age whose hair is, well, virgin! I don’t know how they do it, but it’s totally true —although, if I had their thick, shiny, healthy hair, I would probably have hesitated to touch it, as well! I just think that every now and then it would be nice to change your look, play with it a little, and just mix it up. It gets boring. Don’t you think, girls?!
If you are like me and you like change, then I hope you find the new look you want this season. Just remember this: when it comes to dying your hair, the first thing you have to think about is what colors really go with your skin complexion, your eyes, and your style, and whether your scalp is healthy enough to take it. If you have blond hair and mostly like to stay that way, I would say to try adding some hints of different colors—highlights—within the same “family.” Usually, the colors that really rock by this time of the year are shades of black, chocolate brown, chestnut, reddish tones, and the ever-fashionable light golden brown. Just a tip.
Have fun! And don’t forget to comment: what color(s) do YOU prefer?
