BEAUTY BAR: Fifty Shades of Color

Over the years we have watched celebrities change their haircuts and colors daily, but dying your hair different shades of brown or blonde is now a thing of the past. Instead, colors like teal, purple and red are the new norm. Not ready to commit 100 percent to another hair trend? Don’t worry—this won’t turn out like the bangs your best friend said would look great on you! Instead, just dye the ends of your hair or even strips of hair throughout. This keeps you from looking like that clown you had for your fifth birthday party and more like a fun and edgy Fashionista/o.

College is about trying new things and finding yourself along the way. There will never be a better time to be spontaneous and carefree! Changing your hair color is a great way to express yourself and really show off your personality. This Fashionista especially stuck out because of her beautifully dyed orange hair. By adding light purple to the ends with semi-permanent hair dye, she completely transformed her look. Accenting her hair with a soft pink bralette, white tank top and patterned purple pants, she created the perfect outfit for the color.

If you’re interested in trying a fun hair color but don’t want it to stick around long, try using hair chalk, color spray or non-permanent hair dye. This way you can stay on-trend with all the popular hair colors! Remember, it is important to keep your hair healthy, so if you plan on changing colors often, stick to non-permanent dye so the ends of your hair don’t dry out.

Never be afraid to try something new. You never know, colored hair might turn out to be your favorite trend yet!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look you must first pick your dye. Whether you choose permanent, non-permanent or chalk, make sure to do a little research on what is best for your hair. If you are planning on going extreme with your color, leave it to the professionals! This Fashionista used Pravana hair dye. Schedule an appointment with your hairdresser for the best results.
