It’s time to say “see you later” to the things that were so last year now that 2013 is in full swing! Feel like you need to switch up your look for a fresh start in the New Year? Johnny Wright, celebrity hairstylist whose clients include the First Lady Michelle Obama, has tips on how to revamp last year’s style to make it 2013 worthy!
“Whether it’s subtle or dramatic adding some color can be the perfect way to give your hair that extra somethin’. Highlights, lowlights, or an all over color can make your features pop and add the shine you were craving.” Dark and Lovely’s NEW Go Intense! has an array of sizzling, vibrant shades designed to compliment any skin tone: Golden Brown, Radiant Copper, Spicy Red, Dazzling Brown or Magic Plum.
$6.99 in mass-market outlets and beauty supply stores.
Get a cut:
“Is your hair weighing you down? There’s so many ways to switch up your style without chopping it all off (unless you want to). Cut layers, angles, or do something different like adding bangs to give some flair to last year’s look.”
Switch up your product:
“Sick of the same old product? Expand your horizons and see what else is out there! One of my favorite new product lines for 2013 is the Optimum AMLA Legend line made with amla oil extract to nourish the scalp and hair. Specifically, the AMLA Billion Hair Potion makes hair visibly thicker and fuller – it’s a must try!”
$9.99 in mass-market outlets and beauty supply stores.
Sometimes all we need is a little change in our appearance to give us the extra “umph” we need!
