Margarine Hair : With so many platinum blondes trying to keep their hair cool_toned, it's refreshing to see a yellowy blonde that looks so fabulous. The key to Emma Stone's shade: It's buttery, not brassy. Keep your color happy. Balayage & Babylights Hair : Los Angeles colorist Chrissie Plisky blended two highlighting techniques ( balayage and babylights ) for bright, beautiful dimension, while adding a rooty look "so she can wear it longer without having to get it touched up as often."
A surprising number of testers revealed a dirty secret: stripping down when coloring to avoid staining clothes. If that's not your style, wear an old button_front shirt or robe that way, you won't have to lift anything over your head when it's time to rinse. You can also lay down garbage bags instead of covering surfaces with towels or sheets, which can soak through and need washing. Keep your chapstick handy : There's nothing worse than ending up with stripes of color on your forehead. Rather than using a goopy salve to protect skin from dye, glide a clear solid lip balm along your hairline, Hill says: "Its small size makes for concise application."
