A few weeks ago, I chatted with celebrity colorist Johnny Ramirez about ideas for choosing the right hair color. One homework assignment he gives to his clients involves having them bring in baby pictures, so that he can determine which tones and placements will provide the best results. "You can't go wrong with your natural color when you were a little kid," he explained.
So, I shared with him my aunt's tip on hair color, and he thought it was a brilliant idea. Lucky for my aunt, her mother cut a lock of her gorgeous auburn hair off when she was in high school. Now that she's coloring over the gray decades later, she has an exact match to hand to her stylist. So if you have a lock of hair from your youth, consider this idea the next time you're in the salon. Do you have any hair color tips to share?
