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:
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,
1. Do some
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
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!
