Beige Hair : There's little variation in this soft, light shade of blonde, which is what makes it so special. It has an even more dramatic effect if it closely resembles your skin tone, like you see here with Nicole Kidman. Softly Contrasting Hair : Selena Gomez's surprise transformation from brunette to blonde is sure to inspire others. What makes her switch different from other blonde makeovers? Soft brown roots and her still_dark brows. The intentional contrast is both pretty and convenient, as it will allow her hair to grow out with less maintenance. "Ask your colorist to put a darker semi_permanent color at the roots while leaving the face frame and the ends lighter, allowing for purposeful roots," recommends Clairol Color Director James Corbett.
The Good Housekeeping Institute breaks down why: "Other than henna, any commercially available hair dye store_bought for home use or found in salons uses chemical actives for them to work," says Birnur Aral, Ph.D., Director of the Good Housekeeping Institute's Health, Beauty and Environmental Sciences Lab. "By and large, these chemicals are synthesized substances." Even when the packaging claims to be all_natural, organic or chemical_free which is literally impossible because everything, including organic things, are made of chemicals that could basically be an outright lie. This is because the FDA can't do anything about the use of these terms regarding cosmetics.
