coloring hair at home
Ah ladies, it's spring! Time for a new romance? Wedge sandals from TOM's? Or perhaps it's time for a new hair color?! I love hair color. Actually it's more like I like coloring my hair. The possibility that after I apply this magical elixir, in 25 minutes I could be Marilyn Monroe or some other famous person of the moment is what I love about it.
Now I do believe in going to our hair masters in salons if we don't know what we're doing. I also love it when I have extra cash to be able to afford that salon visit. Thank the heaven's that when I'm broke there are new incredible formulas that won't ruin my hair! Or have me ruin my hair because I don't know what I'm doing!
Here are my two new Faves!
1. John Frieda Precision Foam Color
