Blondes. Brunettes. Redheads. Famous beauties from bygone eras may have had plenty of pizzazz in the “bod” department, but they’re really remembered for their stunning haircolor. Marilyn Monroe’s striking platinum locks made her a star. Rita Hayworth was an unknown until a studio colorist turned her natural, mousy brown hair a rich, strawberry blonde. And Ava Gardner’s raven locks are forever tied to her sex-kitten persona.
But unlike these beauties of yore who, once transformed, didn’t dare to alter their color, today’s haircolor habituates morph from blonde to brunette to red on a whim and strut their ever-changing colorations like prized plumage—thanks to state-of-the-art color formulations, not to mention the more intricate and artful color designs from talented beauty specialists like you.
