Pretend you're in the OR and lay out all of your tools like you're ready to operate. You won't have to stop and scramble mid_process, which could lead to accidents (as in leaving the dye on too long!). Read through the box's instructions beforehand, too, "to get your bearings," Hill suggests. Invest in a color brush. Squirting the dye out and spreading it all over your hair may be easy (and fun!), but this method can be messy and imprecise. Instead, play salon colorist : Mix color in a bowl and paint on with a color brush for the most even, professional finish, testers say.
The Virtual Makeover app takes it one step further and let's you try on different hairstyles and makeup looks. You can choose from celebrity styles but they are easy to customise to suit your head shape. Make sure you use a photo that's exactly front on to the camera for the best match. Then you can also play with your makeup, which will really help determine if the new look will suit you. Or you can just plan your hair & makeup for Saturday night! I love that they give actual makeup colours so you can match it in real life too.
