10 Tips For At-Home Cool Colors


tips-home-cool-colors

He’s the man responsible for Hayley Williams of Paramore’s jaw-dropping hues—so if there’s anyone you can trust for some color tips, it’s him! Brian O’Connor, Creative Director of the hair dye line goodDYEyoung, tells you his expert tips on how to properly color your hair at home without the “Oops!” Whether you’re going bold or keeping it natural, here are a few things to know…

1  If you’re deciding between pink and blue, and will do the other color a month later, always go with the lighter color first. It will fade out and you can put the darker color over it. Red, blue and green tend to be harder to get out of the hair and harder to cover up.

2  Plan on it taking 2-3 hours—especially if doing a double process.

3  Be patient!! It may take a few weeks to achieve what you really want.

4  Remember what you learned in kindergarten: follow the instructions.

5  A timer is your best friend…set one!

6  Avoid wearing anything you don’t want to ruin; it can get messy quick. Designate certain towels for the job—don’t use the good ones.

7  Careful of over-processing when bleaching.

8  Rinse your hair out really, really well.

9  Never use conditioner before applying color to pre-lightened hair. GoodDYEyoung has conditioning ingredients in the formula; it is your conditioner.

10  If you’re bold color curious, but not committed, try a clip-in color extension first.
