One of the most exciting and fun ways to give yourself a fresh lift in the new year is hair color. Bolds, brights, highlights and/or subtle, peek-a-boo pieces give us more than we need to choose from when shaking up a dull or dim base. For those of us who live for that next shade to keep things feeling fresh, these ideas are for you!
Go Back to Your Roots. If you’re like a lot of us, you don’t get your highlights touched up nearly as much as you wish you did. But if you’re a darker base, go ahead and give yourself a little more space to breathe. Let your roots grow in an inch or two and schedule your next appointment even later than usual.
Blend Brown and Blonde. Try blurring the lines between blondes and brunettes. Try a hue that’s caramel or light brown with tints of gold.
Always Auburn. Shades of copper, rust and even hints of magenta are playful ways to shake up your tresses. Subtle signs or bright and bold, rocking auburn locks can be a fun change in your hair routine.
Go quietly crazy. Add a bold color to a section of your "underneath" hair. Bright pink or a gorgeous deep blue on a section of hair that is only visible as your hair moves.
