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. While professionals do sometimes get things wrong, the most common reason why color fades too quickly for our liking is the way we treat the hair before and after the dye job. 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. . .

Created by ARROJO Studio SoHo colorist Meagan Behrent at the Best of the Best Show in Atlanta, we love the orangey hue in this pixie razor cut by Nick Arrojo. Orange is not normally a desirable hair hue, as it is most often associated with the brassy tones one finds when blondes go bad, but this is something different entirely. Dimensional, bright, edgy and deliberate the color works with the cut, makeup and styling to create a look bathed in high fashion modernity. Steal the professional Goldwell color formula in the notes.

Last week, fashion blogs were abuzz over the “new” gray-ombre trend, a look that melds charcoal roots into silver-white ends. The monochromatic look creates a stunning, edgy effect, but one that’s hardly new, and in my personal opinion hardly worth the effort. Silvery-gray hair requires a perfect platinum base to avoid going muddy, and constant maintenance to keep its cool tone. It’s a lot of effort for a shade that, when it occurs in nature, women spend lots of money and time concealing. Why do you think of the gray hair trend? See more examples of gray ombre in the notes and leave us a comment with your thoughts. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

From Natalie Portman to Jessica Alba, buttery praline hues are gaining popularity with celebrities. Praline—a confection made from butter, sugar and nuts—has a warm taupe-caramel hue that’s gorgeous on strands. A blend of a few different levels of the same hue creates intricate, spun-sugar sparkle and soft dimension. Get the formulas and application tips to recreate this celebrity trend in the notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

This inspiration for this hue is midday sun. When our star is high in the sky, it gives off a bright white light suffused with subtle warmth. This color is as bright as your favorite platinum but not the least bit icy. It’s golden warmth maximizes reflectiveness, making strands glow with near-blinding brilliance. Click the notes for the professional formula for this sunny shade. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →
