Snow White Hair : If you're thinking about taking the platinum plunge (seriously, it's a commitment),time to get real about preventative hair care. "If hair is previously colored or highlighted with bleach, make sure you do a deep treatment at least a week before your process," Elizabeth Hiserodt, a colorist at Cutler Salon, told Teen Vogue. Dainty Babylights Hair : These delicate highlights hit the hair scene in 2015, and they've since gone mainstream in 2018. "These are similar to balayage and ombre techniques, but more subtle shades of blonde are placed in the hair to create soft, natural look," says Johnathan Breitung, owner of Johnathan Breitung Salon and Luxury Spa in Chicago.
The last thing you want is to run out of dye halfway through the process. If your hair is shoulder length or longer, you may need two boxes to cover your whole head, depending on hair thickness. (And if you end up with a leftover box, you can always use it next time) Take the strand test : If you're trying a new shade, test it on a few trimmed hairs or hidden pieces first, and look at the result before you commit. A common horror story from testers who didn't do this: hair that turned orange and purple!
