Spring Hair Color Dos and Don'ts

It's a new season, so why not consider changing your hair color? Whether you head to a salon or pick out a box color to use at home, a new hue might be just the thing to lighten your mood.

Don't think that dye is the only option.
"Glazes are good for in between services," James explains. "Shine treatments condition hair, and they're far less expensive."
