Winter weather can get you feeling frumpy and down, which is likely why salons are busier in January than July. Exiting the hair salon with perfectly glossy and vibrant hair color perks us up when we feel shabby and pale. But returning to the salon two weeks later wondering where all that magic went makes us mad as hell.

Eight simple rules can give you longer lasting, brighter color. Following these steps will make your feel better about your beauty investment, and extend the time you have to go back to the salon for a touch up.  Get the scoop below. . .

Despite it not being on every single beauty blog and news article, I still love a great ombré do. It’s been over five years since the trend really hit strong and every girl on the A-list as well as her followers rocked it. During that span we saw everything from natural options of subtle gradation to obvious statement making dip-dyed ends. As lengths came and went, ombré was a constant, gracing every style from bobs to mermaid inspired lengths. I loved the style because it is a fabulous way to experiment with different colors and add depth and definition to any look.. So even years later, I’m deeming this look more than just a fad and a definite do! In case you need added confirmation, click through to the notes to see my favorite looks from today’s it-gals. You’ll be booking an appointment with your colorist in no time.  –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

The internet has exploded with a barrage of underlights in psychedelic hues, claiming that this technique is the perfect way to have vibrant strands that you can conceal at the office. The assertion is a bit dubious—The only feasible way you could completely conceal underlights is to avoid moving—but the technique does allow the wearer to have a subtle accent shade that won’t dominate their look. One of my favorite applications of this technique is to use it to add bits of a brighter version of the base color. The look pictured above shows a classic version, an ashy dusk blonde enhanced with starry underlights. Get application tips and formulas for this look in the style notes. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

Trends are a fickle thing. You think green hair is the coolest and then Rihanna and Katy Perry go and post pictures of blue hair on Instagram and, wham, there’s a new style du jour. But if you pay close attention, there are always new emerging themes coming from the top end of fashion and beauty. In lieu of fixing our ADD, we asked Zach Norman, leading colorist at ARROJO Studio Williamsburg (i.e., the world’s hippest location) for his hair color trend predictions for the coming year. Beat the hoi polloi in the notes.
