WHY COLOR? Ombré queen Krista Curtis says: "a lot of clients come to see me when they're going through life changes. Sometimes it actually helps bring out what she's feeling inside—or how she wants to feel. What else can you do in two hours that completely transforms you (but that can be undone, unlike plastic surgery)? I see so many women drastically changing their color at the end of a relationship that I've coined it the "breakover"—instead of a makeover. I think it's an intricate part of the healing process. The right hair color can give confidence, enhance your mood, and make you feel sexy again. I don't have scientific proof, but I know people feel better when they get up from my chair."
HOW TO KEEP IT: Being pastel obsessed herself- blonde specialist Nadine Eberts recommends conditioning hair with color pigment conditioner (she can make one for you, custom!) and washing less. Go for the 2-3 day bed head/effortlessly tousled look. Dry shampoo will be your BFF, it saves on water, shampoo/conditioner & styling products. WIN, WIN, WIN for you!
HOW TO LOSE IT: When you decide pink is so passé and natural is key- wash your hair a few times with a cleansing shampoo- voila! It will fade to a beautiful warm blonde.
