Brunettes have more fun.

This is only my biased opinion.  I've always been a brunette and I try not to let a day go by without having fun!

Well it's fall (YAY!) and that means it's time to get our wardrobe in check and our hair in shape!  Over the summer my hair had a few highlights and was a shade or two lighter than usual, so I was ready to go a little darker.  If you are a regular reader, then it's no shock that Audrey Hepburn is my style icon.  There must be something special about that name because Audrey Tautou is another one of my faves too. Classic beauty at it's best.  These beautiful ladies were my inspiration for my color choice from Clairol Professional ‘Classic Collection’. I wanted something rich, like dark chocolate, so I chose the Classic Coffee Brown.

Let's be honest, we would all love to have our hair done and be treated at a salon, but it's not always in the budget.  I tend to go to a salon, maybe twice a year, but when my roots are screaming for attention, I just do a little DIY at home!  I really liked the Clairol Professional ‘Classic Collection’ because it gave me the color I would of expected in a salon, but much easier on your wallet.

Even if you are new to dying your hair at home, Clairol Professional ‘Classic Collection' makes it super easy.  I just laid out a piece of foil to help eliminate spillage, grabbed a disposable bowl, plastic spoon, rubber gloves and mixed away.  Be sure to mix both the color and the developer well until it becomes more thick in consistency. Since this isn't my first rodeo, I didn't use a tint brush, but I would recommend it, it can get a bit messy, if you don't.  Be sure to cover all your hair and wipe off your skin as you go to avoid staining.  I had a few spots, but once I rinsed my hair out, they came right off.

I'm so happy with how it turned out!  It's exactly what I wanted, so stay tuned, "after" pics to come!
Eat your heart out Audrey(s)!
