The Clarion - It's Styling

It is a simple fact: The right hair color can help fix complexion issues better than any brand of concealer–making you look younger, brighter and probably even thinner. And you don’t have to completely change your shade of hair color to get skin-enhancing benefits.
Color virgins, listen up: Just accentuating your natural color will make your hair look shinier and healthier. After you do your color if you have to pile on makeup you probably picked the wrong color. If you worry about getting the right color, use a semipermanent color first. Just know it does change the color of your natural hair more than you think, but a good way to look to see if you want to color.
Don’t attempt major changes in color like brunette to blonde—it takes a professional to do this and some of us are a little reluctant to do it.
Before you color use a clarifying shampoo to remove build up and chemicals from the hair. If you have curly hair please don’t get really thin highlights. It takes a thicker strip of hair to really show up when that thick curly hair is dried and styled.
Also, well placed highlights and lowlights can actually visually slim your face. If you have a round face, you want more highlights on the top of your head. If you have a double chin, don’t start your amber ends or any other color change at the jawline, the eye looks directly at your double chin.
If your hair seems dull just place a few highlights three to four shades lighter around the face. It will bring out the warmth of your skin and make you feel brighter without doing the highlights throughout the entire head of hair.
