New Year New Hair Color

New Year, New Hair Color

Need a date for New Year’s? 13% of single women have been asked on a date immediately following a trip to the hair salon. Fabulous hair and a hot date all in one day? Yes please! 2015 is just around the corner and it’s the perfect time to turn your color from drab to fab. Match and Wella Professionals have teamed up to bring ‘Girls’ Night Out’ Stir events to women across the country. For those of you who can’t make it to an event, we’ve teamed up with Wella Professionals Celebrity Colorist, Jennifer J. to provide her top hair-coloring tips and tricks to make a bold statement in the New Year.

Wella Professionals Celebrity Colorist Jennifer J. is one of the most sought-after celebrity hair colorists nationwide among the influencers, tastemakers and entertainment elite. Her experience spans more than 15 years, during which this time she has become a key figure in the world of hair coloring.

  1. Want to get rid of your ombre style for winter, but still enjoying your lighter ends?  Do a layered gloss! Mix three different colored glosses using Illumina and Color.id by Wella Professionals.  Pick a rich shade for your roots that works with your skin tone and for your hair’s mid-shaft area, go one level lighter.  Mix Color.id into the color so you can paint horizontal sections going lighter as you go down.  With Color.id, your color won’t bleed and you can get as creative as you want.
  1. Hair can be extra-dry in the winter, so after washing and conditioning your hair, don’t rinse the conditioner out all the way so there is a small amount left in your hair.  This will coat and protect your hair while keeping it extra-moisturized.
  1. Winter white isn’t only for clothes.  Blondes, think “radiant” for winter.  A few perfectly painted highlights will give your color a boost but won’t damage your hair.  Think: Less is more.
  1. Brunettes, go a little darker for winter with deep rich tones.  Think: chocolate, espresso, amber brown, chestnut.  Warm browns are really flattering for most brunettes!
  1. Redheads can still experience a change in the winter.  A darker, richer root and redder warm tones all over looks the most natural on redheads and avoids the problem of your hair looking too pink or orange.

Match Success Couple: Michelle and Nick

I have been wanting to try Match.com for a while but just never got around to it. One night after a bit too much wine, I found a Groupon for a 1 month membership to Match. I decided it was time. I filled out my profile and also began browsing. I saw a few guys that I thought were attractive and one in particular caught my eye. I was not sure how the website worked yet, so I accidentally “winked” at him. Then, I went to sleep. Read more…
