Jennifer Lawrence's new dye job: Should you go dark for fall?


 
Jennifer Lawrence looked seriously stunning with her dark locks at the Toronto Film Festival. David Babaii created a “high fashion look” for Jennifer’s premiere of her new flick, Silver Linings Playbook. Are you craving change? Fall is the perfect time to go darker and virtually anyone can go brunette, but before taking the plunge, check out these tips:

 

1. Do some research

Don’t just go for the first color you see. Figure out what shades are the best match for your skin tone. For example, girlies with fair complexions should go for hues with more honey and caramel undertones. Your stylist will know what’s best for your skin tone.

 

2. You can always go darker

As invigorating as going from bleach blonde to jet black sounds, most stylists recommend that you stay within two shades of your natural hair color. It’s easier to maintain and it’ll really pull together your skin and eye tones. Wanna go darker later? That’s cool, but just remember that it’s hard to go lighter once you’ve already gone too dark.

 

3. Know the differences
There are three basic dye types and depending on what you’re going for, you’ll wanna know them all. Temporary dye lasts only one wash and works well for short-term toning.  Semi-permanent dye lasts up to 10 washes and is great for the gals that aren’t quite sure whether they want to commit. Lastly, permanent dye is the longest lasting that grows out with the hair over time. This is the best option for rich, full color.

 

4. Don’t freak
If you wanna go a little darker this fall, go for it! Just follow the above steps and have fun with the whole process. Don’t take it too seriously because most mistakes can be fixed if not reduced. Transform your locks and check out how awesome it can be to rock a different shade!
