Have you been feeling like your hair color is a bit blah lately? Getting into a rut with your hair, especially the color, can be difficult. Since our hair is something we literally wear every day, we can’t just ignore it when it feels ‘blah.’ This season, it’s not just about coloring your hair in blonde hue as so many summer seasons in the past have been about. If you’ve been feeling blah about your hair and you want a change, but something in the darker color range you’re in the right place. We’ve discovered some easy transitions from blah to brunette to give you hair that gorgeous hue you want.
Transitioning your hair from one color to an entirely different one can be drastic and stressful on your hair. Which is why experts suggest one of the best, and easiest, ways to transition your hair color is to start with highlights in the hair color tone you’re looking to achieve. So since you’ve been feeling as though your hair color is “blah” ask your colorist to add in some brunette toned highlights. This can be done in a variety of different ways, so you’ll want to have an open discussion with your stylist in what the best highlighting method will be for you and your hair color. Baylage and ombre have become incredibly common highlighting methods since the hair color at the roots doesn’t need to match perfectly and they give you a lot of time between appointments for growth.
Slowly Darken the Color
If you’re planning to make a big change in your hair color, another method of transitioning your hair color is to opt for an all over color change that’s one shade darker each time you get your hair colored. Coloring your hair this method allows the hair to be repaired and refreshed between hair color appointments. Your stylist can help you decide what shades you choose every time (or every other time, depending upon how quickly you want to make the transition). This can give you an instant boost to your “blah” feeling hair color quickly, but also help you start the journey (safely) to getting your hair to a darker hue.
Regardless of the method of transition you decide to go with for your hair, it’s always essential that you go to someone who’s an expert in coloring. Coloring your hair, especially when you’re going through a pretty drastic color transition, is serious business and should be treated that way. If you haven’t gotten your hair professionally colored in the past, now is the time to do so. Of course, we can’t forget to mention that when you’re transitioning your hair color you need to be focusing on healthy hair care habits. Giving your hair a lot of extra moisture and hydration during this time will help keep your hair healthy, repair any damage and give your locks an added boost.
