Forty was once said to be the new 30; now 50 appears to be the new 30. It seems that we are getting younger and younger. We are constantly in search of the fountain of youth. Do you remember a time when all adults seemed archaic? Why has that changed? Some of it has to do with the fact that as you age, your perception of age changes. These days, most of us are living better and taking care of ourselves better. One of the biggest changes in how we take care of ourselves involves hair color.
One report indicated that 30 years ago, only 20% of the adult population wore hair color; today almost 70% of the adult population wears color. Let’s face it; wearing gray hair makes most people look older. The questions have been asked, “Do blondes really have more fun? Are brunettes more sage? Or, do redheads have more spice?” I’m not sure that there is a definitive answer to those questions, and we won’t seek to explore them now. What is clear is that “colored” (hair) girls tend to look more youthful. Hair color can be that amazing magic wand that instantly transforms Cinderella into the Belle of the Ball (this may be a bit of an exaggeration, but let me have my moment)!
Although hair color has transformative power, it should not be taken lightly. Coloring the hair is much more complex than it appears, because several factors must be taken into consideration when formulating color. For this reason, I personally recommend that hair coloring be reserved for a professional colorist. However; for those adventurous DIY hair enthusiasts, here are a few points to remember:
Whether you’re changing your hue to something more bold and adventurous or just touching up the roots, hair color adds richness and vibrancy so that your hair appears healthy and shiny. Join the revolution, add a little color and add a little life!
