Start Today, Look Younger Tomorrow
If You're Blond, Go Warmer
And consider lowlights rather than highlights. That old rule about going lighter and brighter as you age? Forget it. "Skin loses pigment with time, so bright and ashy blond shades can read 'old,'" says colorist Kelly Van Gogh. She recommends adding "a little depth and warmth" with golden tones and lowlights. A bolder choice: red. "Women shy away from it, but if you choose the right shade, it can be beautiful on almost anyone," says Van Gogh. "Red is vibrant, which translated into a youthful appeal."
