Funky hair colors have been around for a while, and it’s no secret that these alternative hues are getting more and more trendy. Last year, pastel hair was all the rage, and pretty soon, #grannyhair picked up steam.  Of course, as any self-declared unicorn knows, keeping bleached hair healthy isn’t always an easy feat, but it’s worth the battle to be able to show off those colorful locks on Instagram (right?). This spring, however, it’s all about icy hair. Think pastel, but with a shimmery twist. Here are some ideas guaranteed to make you want to run to your local salon, stat. Continue reading

5 Ways To Keep Bleached Hair Healthy

By Rachela Forcellese

I myself, much like De, fell in love with the silver ombré hair trend and decided to give it a try. The ombré is an excellent hairstyle because it requires very little salon maintenance. It can grow out and still look pretty much the same. Unfortunately, committing to this hairstyle meant bleaching my hair more than once. Bleach is extremely damaging to the hair as it strips it of its color instead of directly dyeing over it like regular hair dye.

Although the ombré style is great and requires very little in-house upkeep, I do have to put an extra amount of care into my at-home hair routine. I worked hard this past year to keep my hair moisturized, as I wasn’t about to give up my hair health for a single trend. Through that maintenance, I’ve discovered these 5 techniques that, despite all the bleaching, have helped to keep my hair as healthy as possible:   Continue reading

I have thick hair. Not even regular thick hair. But like, “I shaved half of my entire head and I still have a full head of hair” hair. I am fully Italian – bred from beasts, and my hair has always been a problem for me and others. Once, I smacked my head on a pole and felt nothing because my bun was so thick it saved me. Hairdressers love to pull a big fistful of my hair in their hands and tell me how much I have. Continue reading

The silver/grey ombré is essentially a happy medium – it’s not a full commitment to embracing the full silver foxette look, but it’s a start. I saw it on Instagram myself a few days ago and knew I had to try it.  Continue reading
