Bold Hair: Trends You HAVE to Try Once!

by eyount

Women throughout the country are following the trends that celebs sport on the red carpets from NYC to L.A., but the truth is this: many women opt for a less dramatic take on the trend than their star counterparts; not everyone wants Katy Perry's Smurf blue hair, after all! Read on for top tips and instructions for achieving ombre hair at home!



Whether you commit to extensions or want an ombre look, there are a variety of ways to get perfect Summer hair that is right on trend.

Extensions

“Extensions are the best way to temporarily rock a bright hair color without the risk of adversely affecting your hair,” celebrity hairstylist Gocha Hawkins says.

Editor's Note: We did this at the office with a gorgeous deep blue and it looked terrific on Deena from the Marketing department.

 

"Make sure that extensions are damp prior to dying. If your hair is darker, opt for a saturated tone like a hot pink. If your hair is light, try something softer.”

Editor's Note: We are IN LOVE with ethereal looks such as this one: Rachel McAdams


Ombre
This is our absolute favorite trend for women with long locks. For the ombre look, sectionin the hair and start applying dye from the bottom up.  Keep dye on the ends for about half the time the directions suggest, and then begin dying the next section of hair. Do not remove the dye from the tips. At the end, dilute the color on the ends with water, then wash and dry! Your new look will be beachy, relaxed and perfectly suited to Summer or Fall!
