Try a new hair color

One of the easiest ways to ‘shake things up’ from a personal look perspective is to color your hair. There’s a wide variety of options, it’s as temporary as you want it to be, and the opportunity to go bold is inherent. Your colorist’s ability to create a natural blonde look or a full rainbow is only limited by your desire. Do you have a wish to see what it’s like to be a redhead or a beach blonde?

For those of us who use hair color for reasons other than covering gray, it seems that we are demonstrating very specific personality characteristics; using color to make a silent statement.

Colors Have Meaning

Making the Brunette choice indicates stability and responsibility. It suggests a mature perspective with an emphasis on hard work and success.

Making the decision to dye your ends with a bright color indicates that you like to ‘switch things up’. It implies that you prefer compromise and like to find a ‘happy medium’. You’re more likely to settle into the ‘middle ground’.

Choosing a natural blonde look will highlight the fun side of your personality. The ‘blondes have more fun’ mantra speaks to your bold side. It tells the world that you’re willing to be the life of the party and you’re up for a night out or a chill PJ party as long as it’s with friends.

Going red is always just ‘sassy’. You take charge and make things happen while cultivating the hearts of those who take the time to know you; others step back. Your energy keeps life interesting.

Making the move to do dark and deep boldly tells the world you’ll welcome it in but you’re not going to chase it down. You wear your heart quietly on your sleeve and home is where you want to be.

There are a lot of great variations to these descriptions that will add a ‘side note’ whether its a Balayage, foil highlights, a colored streak, or an Ombre. These playful options are fun and shift the color without a massive change.

If you’re needing a little pick-me-up, this may be just the option for you. Consider your personality, talk to your stylist, and …
