Summer breaks are the perfect time to experiment with new styles and looks. Classes aren’t overwhelming, meetings have slowed down, and you now have more time on your hands to create a fresh start. If you’ve been bored with your hair for some time, look no further.

 Tis the season… for colorful hair!

As the times have changed, vibrant colors are no longer reserved for artists, skateboarders, and musicians. Every day people have turned to hair color as a way to express themselves. As a matter of fact, I was inspired to dye my hair this summer and so far, I love itHere are three women who may give you some inspiration if you’re thinking about taking that big step.

If you’re looking for something temporary and none damaging, this is the perfect option. To achieve this look, she used a vibrant blue eye shadow. Simply, rub your index and thumb fingers into the shadow, then rub onto the tips of your hair. This look will last anywhere from 3-7 days. (Possibly longer depending on the hair products you use)


Shateria Moragne (@ishateria)

Only for the brave of heart, this look is without a doubt, the boldest option. Shateria’s hair is dyed blonde only in the front section. (About 1 1/2- 2 inches back from her edges) I’m certainly not a professional so I suggest seeing a licensed cosmetologist to achieve this look.

Lastly, the inspiration behind my recent color change, Jade. The colors used were Intensive Red and Red Copper by Creme of Nature. What I love about their dye is that it doesn’t require you to bleach/lift your hair in order to get a color pay off. The directions for use are included inside the color kit.

I hope that these women may have given you a little inspiration when it comes to coloring your hair. I know that it can be scary, but don’t be afraid. When done correctly, hair dye is safe.

From Me to You, Love.
