There’s been a thread going on a loop about women coloring their hair. My first reaction was to skip them all, since I’m a licensed cosmetologist and I often am tempted to give my professional opinion. I know that’s seldom wanted, but still– I’m tempted. 🙂
The gist is that women tend to color their hair too darkly as they age, and it looks fake. Yeah, doh! This isn’t news.
I’ve preached this for years, and urged my clients to lighten an overall color, and add multi highlights. Heck, even a simple “reverse highlight” makes a huge difference to how old a woman looks, and doesn’t chain a client to a salon and touch ups every month.
Simple rule of thumb is make the hair look natural, and that often takes multi layers of color.
