Do You Want A Dramatic Hair Color Change?

Bold color is nothing new, but this method is something completely different. It certainly borrows some of the edge from the punk rockers of the 80's.  But the overall effect is nothing but modern.

First of all, you do not need to go overboard with all-over color. Perhaps try just dipping the ends of your hair. Consider bright turquoise or fuchsia. Or go softer with lavender.

Streak your bangs with playful bubble gum pink or color solid. These contemporary bright lights have slightly faded and imperfect edges and pop with unexpected placement.
