As winter approaches, your natural instinct is likely to color your hair darker. But I don’t think so.
As winter approaches, your natural instinct is likely to color your hair darker.
But I don’t think so.
In the winter, most of us would already wear a lot of black, grey or solid colors. So think about this. If you’re wearing a lot of darker colors, and your hair is dark, you may look a little dull.

‘ I don’t believe women should change hair colors as season does. Otherwise what would happen with the beautiful Scandinavians Blondes in the winters! Go Darker!? Never! ‘ Star Colorist Rogerio Cavalcante from Maria Bonita Salon
Don’t be afraid to go lighter in the winter, since you won’t get a lot of sunlight reflection off your hair during the colder seasons.

‘ During the winter season, the sun casts a pretty white and grey light. Because of this , many people think that they have to change their hair color to be darker and warmer, but in fact the opposite is true, I recommend that, during the winter, blonds go to more of an ASHY/COOL blond- even ICY ‘ Celebrity Colorist David Michaud from Frederic Fekkai Soho
Here are some things to keep in mind when coloring your hair (these are tips that go beyond the winter season)
1) When looking for the best tone for your face, turn to your eyebrows, eye color and skin color, to find something complementary.
2) If your hair is already light, don’t be afraid to go platinum blonde or a cooler blonde.
3) Trust your hairstylist and colorist. Spend time to chat with them, so that you can make sure all of you are on the same page.

How To Get Silky, Bouncy Locks… When Your Hair Is Dry, Brittle and Damaged
Hair dryers, the sun and chemicals from our dyes and perms tend to fry our precious manes, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get Gigi Hadid’s silky look. To first understand how to fix dry hair, we gotta know what causes it. Dry hair stems from dehydration and open cuticles. Think of cuticles as a protective fortress around the inner layers of the hair shaft. When cuticles are closed, they wrap around the hair, protecting the moisture inside, which gives the hair its shine. When cuticles are open, the moisture escapes, making hair go wild (in a frizzy and dry way). To close the cuticle, Frederic Fekkai hairstylist Marshall Lin suggests using a conditioner mask or Frederic Fekkai serum along with rinsing your hair in ice cold water. “Spend five minutes or more to really rinse your hair squeaky clean with cooler temperature water,” he urges us. “I guarantee your hair will look silky without spending a penny.”

We know what you’re thinking—Flash Tattoos are soooo two years ago. We would argue against that, and plus it’s festival season, which means it’s time to take some beauty risks you might not be able to pull off in your regular life (looking at you, rainbow highlighter). Instead of heading to your next festival with fake tats all over your body, this year up the cool factor by blinging out your hair. The process, courtesy of hairstylist Marshall Lin, couldn’t be easier.
First, the bad news: This look isn’t going to work with your undone beachy waves. The good news: Pretty much any other look that you can apply a flatiron to is fair game; think the pulled-back sides of a ponytail or topknot, a sleek sheet of straightened hair, or even the length of a cool braid. All it takes is a temporary tattoo (those leftover ones that have been hanging around the back of your makeup drawer since last summer will work perfectly) and a flatiron.
Start by straightening the section of hair where you want to apply the tattoo until it’s smooth (don’t forget the heat protectant!). Then carefully place the tattoo facedown, just like you would on your skin. But this next step differs from the technique you’d use for skin: Rather than using water, for your hair you’ll gently clamp the heated straightener down over the tattoo, ironing it on, just like those patches you totally needed on your jeans in seventh grade. After giving the tattoo a few seconds to cool down, peel away the backing, and ta-da! Literally the shiniest hair you’ve ever had, just in time for concert season.
It’s just grey hair. Why worry?
Many women get anxious about seeing grey hair. To many women, the presence of grey hair is just as good as being old and unattractive, and they’ll keep checking their hair in the mirror to look for more.
I won’t suggest coloring your hair until 15% of the hair in your crown is grey. It wouldn’t be good to color a whole head of hair just for a few grey strands here and there. If it is, start with a semi-permanent color, but it’s effectiveness depends on how resistant your hair is.
It’s probably more important to try and find out the reason why your hair is grey. Aging is only one of them. If you’re in your twenties, it may be caused by reasons, such as genetics, that you may not be able to control.
So relax. Searching for grey hair is like searching for stars in the sky, you’ll only find more and more. Why let a little grey ruin your day?
