What do the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Scarlett Johansson, Ashlee Simpson and Agyness Deyn (to name but a few!) have in common? They all know the secret. Well, not so much a secret, but one of the best cures for boredom or a life-rut is to change your hair-do. Not content with simply getting a new haircut, the real way to earn your style stripes these days is to change your hair colour as frequently as you change your outfit.
Ok, so it might not necessarily be all that good for your feeble follicles, but it is guaranteed to change your mood and keep your style on its toes.
Red, blonde, raven, brunette, hell I’ve been them all. Considering how so many people change their locks these days, it would almost be fair to say that stereotypes such as the “ditzy blonde”, “boring brunette” and “hot-tempered redhead” are obsolete.
Not only do blondes allegedly have more fun, they also have many, many choices when it comes to the wardrobe. For a sleek and glamorous look, dress head-to-toe in black. If you are light-skinned it is often better to avoid bright acidic ensembles and instead add complementary purple accents to your daily outfit.
Red is a sure-win here – just channel the Special K girl! If you have a dark complexion, you can pretty much add all colours to your wardrobe and mix-and-match with no fear, If you have paler skin it is best to steer away from dark colours that can wash you out, and instead choose some sassy fabrics in rich shades of red and purple. Be cautious of boring brown unless you want to blend into a crowd.
The best way to work up your fabulously fiery hair is to contrast it with cool shades of blue, green and aqua. When wearing black add accessories of a brighter hue to prevent pastiness. To really bring out your hair colour don a purple dress, or for the day keep it neutral and instead wear purple, green or yellow accessories.
Wearing all-black can cause dark-haired girls can lead to two things – you either embrace timeless chic or gothic chic. Unless you want the gothic look take care when wearing black with pale complexions. Bright colours will contrast amazingly with your dark locks, so ditch the black and get some contrast. Electric blues, yellows and reds will bring out your eyes and help signal your new vamp status!
