Do You Want A Dramatic Change?
Switching up your hair color is the easiest (and sometimes most dramatic) way to give your look a lift, and is a great way to keep current with the changing of the seasons.
Fashion has taken a turn towards color blocked styles, and makeup and manicures have followed suit, but now the hottest new way to jump on the blocking bandwagon is with color blocked hair.
Bold color is nothing new, but this method is something completely different. It certainly borrows some of the edge from the punk rockers of the 80's, but the overall effect is nothing but modern.
Instead of going overboard with all over color, try just dipping the ends of your hair in a bright turquoise or fuchsia.
Bangs can be colored all over or slightly streaked with lavender.
These contemporary bright lights have slightly faded and imperfect edges, and pop with unexpected placement.
And there's no need to change your haircut to highlight your hip new color.
A few strategically placed streaks, usually not colored all the way to the root, look stunning peeking out of long, luscious locks.
More brazen gals can embrace their inner Cruella DeVille with larger, blockier sections painted pretty, or even panels hidden underneath the top layers of hair.
Or dip your toes in with a few sneaky strands that are only visible when hair is up in a pretty ponytail.
Brands like Manic Panic and Punky Color have long been the go to brands for wild color.
Bigger companies like Paul Mitchell and Schwartzkopf have come onboard with their own, high quality and longer wearing versions of Crayola color.
Fearless fashionistas with lighter locks may have a shot at do-it-yourself-ing, but if there’s a need for bleach involved, your best bet is to enlist the help of a pro to color block your hair.
