Ok, so Valentine’s Day is coming up. Now, we all know that I don’t really believe in Valentine’s Day (I think you should be getting your sexy on AND be appreciated all year long) but let’s say for the sake of argument that there’s a date involved and that there might be a little flirtatious hair flipping happening. Let’s also say for the sake of argument that on said date, you wish to be seen as your Hottest and Most Luscious Self. This is all going well until you realize that your hair color is uneven. Or flat and dull. Or Grey Not In a Good Way.
This means you might have to get your color on for our version of The Big Game. As your coach, it’s my responsibility to walk you through the play book, so let’s walk through your hair color options in terms of Super Bowl pays:
Serious Overtime – Want this guy SERIOUSLY? If you know that you’re going to take this game into overtime and beyond, take a gander at the new L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference hues, especially their new Les Blondissimes & Sunkissed Caramel shades. We’re talking lit-from-within hair color for eight weeks and it’s fade resistant thanks to their proprietary Optimized Fade-Defying System. Even if you’re not blonde but you need to lighten and brighten, this is where you need to go with it.
1st and Goal – Ok, this date has promise, but you don’t have a lot of time to think about if it means happily ever after right now. This is why I LOVE mousse hair color (dripless, fast, pretty much goof-proof.) Check out L’Oreal Paris Sublime Mousse by Healthy Look hair color, which works quickly and lasts beautifully, especially those gorgeous new chestnut and copper shades.
Penalty Kick – You’re not even sure you want to stay through drinks, much less let him see Hair Flipping, the Advanced Moves. This is when L’Oréal Paris Healthy Look Crème Gloss Color works. It goes in quickly and washes out in 28 shampoos (which, evidently in Hollywood is the average length of a relationship.) This is a great way to subtly blend away greys fast or to try a new hue without putting a ring on it, so to speak.
Flag on the Play – This guy is SERIOUSLY LUCKY you’re even making time for this date, but that doesn’t mean that you want him to see you less than spectactular. Make arrangements for your girl to break through with *that* emergency (“The cat again? Oh no! I’ll be right over!) and stick to L’Oréal Paris Root Rescue 10 Minute Root Coloring Kit, which covers those pesky roots in 10 minutes flat.
That’s it. Be sure to wear something super cute, always wear great underwear and – in case of a touchdown – wear protection in case there’s impact getting into the end zone. Have fun, girls!
