If you're thinking about a major hair colour change, you'll love these apps to help you try on a new hair colour, risk-free. Some of the apps I've tried in the past are so awful and spammy. These are really good fun to play with, even if you just want to see what you look like with pink hair. You can experiment with your hair colour, risk-free. Best of all, these apps are free too! Note they do have some in-app purchases, but I've been testing them and find the free versions are good enough.
Don't trust the model on the box. Sure, the woman smiling on the front of the box looks beautiful, but the color of her hair is a fantasy. "The color always ends up lighter than the model's hair on the packaging," says colorist Dana Ionato of the Sally Hershberger Downtown salon in New York City. "The developer in at_home permanent dyes is very strong stronger that the ones we use in the salon so it lifts the color and makes it lighter than what you see on the box." A better estimate on how the color will end up is the chart on the top of the box, which shows you the final color you get from a range of different hair_color shades.
