Fall Hair Color Predictions

Every year, hair stylists and those of us with a bit of a hair obsession begin the quest of trying to guess what the new styles, cuts, and colors of choice will be for the coming season. Now that summer is almost over and is quickly coming to a close, it’s time for us to begin thinking about what we assume the hair colors of this fall 2015 will be. Let’s take a look at what we’ve come up with. Some are traditional fall favorites which we can never seem to get away from, while others are new innovations and concepts that haven’t been done before.

Light brown hair with highlights

Light Brown with Highlights or Lowlights
Light brown is a great way to transition into an early fall color without going too drastic in terms of change. Perhaps you had some sort of a blonde shade for the summer; now’s your chance to change it up while still staying light toned. Add in some highlights or lowlights for a warm effect.

Auburn hair color

Red is one of the beautiful, brilliant colors of fall – and why shouldn’t it be? It’s beautiful. This fall, we believe auburn will be a favorite among those who have brown and are looking for a change, and those with fair skin – as it would look divine on them. This cross mix between red and brown is absolutely brilliant for the cool fall months, and will look fabulous to enter into the season.


A great way to fade from summer to fall is to opt for ombre hair. With this beautiful style, you can fade from the color you currently have to a lighter shade at the bottom, or vice versa – though people generally tend to go dark to light. It adds a neat style that incorporates the lighter shade you love with the darker shade that says, “I’m ready for fall!’ at the top. We love this style, and we just don’t really see it going anywhere anytime soon.

Plum highlights

Plum seems to be making it’s way back into the hairstyle realm, and we are glad to see it! Plum is somewhat of a cross between a brunette and purple hue, although there are different plum shades. A true plum incorporates a purple sheen when in the light and brownish red when indoors. Plum hair looks awesome on it’s own or with a few chunky blonde highlights in the bangs for edgy color.

Rose gold hair color.

Rose Gold Hair
Rose gold hair is absolutely stunning, and will allow those who rocked a much lighter version of the shade in forms of platinum and etc. to darken their blonde for the cooler months, while still keeping a brilliant, beautiful color that’s fall appropriate. Rose gold hair color looks very similar to the actual precious metal in the rose gold hue – it incorporates the slightest pink tone with the golden color and a little bit of brown all into one, providing a golden hued glow. This hair color is said to look perfect on women of all skin colors, yet it looks exceptional on women with olive or tan skin tones.

Eye Shadow Tricks to Use on the Hair

There are many things the beloved beauty product we all know and love as eye shadow can do. It’s not merely for eyelids anymore! From hair tricks, to beauty tricks and more, there are so many cool uses for this versatile beauty product – especially when it comes to the hair – that most people haven’t ever heard of. Today, Lionesse clues you in on some of the eye shadow tricks and tips you can use for your hair – and some of them might really shock you, while others will make you say, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Hiding Roots
Whether you’re aware or not – perhaps, you’ve even tried this yourself at home without actually knowing this is a thing – eyeshadow hues that match the color your hair can be used to hide roots which have grown out too far, and are in need of a touch up, or they can cover areas of the head which are beginning to bald due to medical reasons or age. Be sure you use a color that matches the remainder of your hair for the most natural look to hide those roots until you can get the perfect touch up.

Covering Greys
When you are dealing with greys, they can be unpredictable. Unpredictable grey hair can pop up at any given moment, and can really be annoying when you have last minute things to attend to. If you happen to notice a grey or two when you’re getting ready to head out, use a shade of eyeshadow that matches your hair color as closely as possible, run your fingers over the product, and then run the product over your fingers where the shadow has been applied to cover the product. Spray with hairspray to hold in place.

Pigments to Add Color (Like Hair Chalk)
If you love hair chalk, but recently ran out of your favorite – or perhaps you’d like to try a new color – you can always opt for eyeshadow pigments to complete the task. Pigments can be added to the hair in various colors to achieve the same look and effect as hair chalk, to implement some fun shades of color into the hair for that dramatic pop we all love. Opt for small strands of hair, or large chunks of hair. To get the look, you can use 2-day old hair (meaning, you haven’t washed the hair in 2 days or so) and hairspray the pieces you want to apply the pigments to. Brush the hairsprayed hair out a bit to make it soft again, and apply the eyeshadow to the hair using a cosmetic brush or by running the hair directly between your finger and the pigment. It’s recommended that you don’t use the pigment for your eyes again if you do choose the second method, as there will be hairspray in the product, which could cause irritation to the eyes. It should be reserved for hair use only if you choose the second option.

Eyebrows – Don’t Make These Mistakes

When people see you, or you meet someone new, one of the very first things they will see is your eyes and eye area. That’s one of the reasons your eyebrows are such an integral part of your face. Your eyebrows frame your face, sort of similar to how a picture frame gently sits surrounding your favorite picture. They can truly make or break your look. Today, Lionesse would like to offer you some pointers on how you can avoid making costly mistakes in terms of your precious brows that can leave you crying rather than smiling.

Woman plucking her eyebrows.

Being that your brows only take up residence on a small portion of your face, going in with the tweezers and getting a bit pluck happy is never a good idea. A few stray hairs plucked to give your brows a clean look is always a good idea, but altering the brow’s shape, thickness, and style should be saved for the professionals. A few missing hairs out of place or over plucking in the wrong area could make you look angry, worried, or upset when you’re not – and that’s confusing for anyone. Be sure to leave the brow shaping to your trusted brow professional.

Shave Them Off
Shaving off your eyebrows is never, ever a good idea. Even if you think you would like to spend some time drawing them on for a while, or perhaps get permanent makeup applied in terms of your brows, think again. When the time comes where you decide you may want your natural brows back, you may not be able to regrow them – take Lucille Ball, for instance. The ‘I Love Lucy’ star was asked to shave her brows off for her first leading role in a movie, where she then penciled her brows on. After the movie was finished filming, she was never able to regrow her brows, and had to draw them on for the remainder of her life. Always think twice before making what could end up being a dire mistake such as this.

Woman with arched eyebrows.

Misplacing Your Arch
Many women accidentally misplace their arch when they are tweezing their own brows at home. To get a well-defined arch exactly where it should be, pick up an eyeliner pencil, and hold it from the outer corner of your nose on the brow’s side you want to work on, and up and diagonal to the eye. Allow the pencil to meet the outer edge of the iris of the eye – this is where you want your arch to begin. Extend the arch slightly outward for the perfect arched brow look.

Woman with a thin eyebrow tail.

Removing Too Much of the Tail
Removing too much of the tail end of your brows is always a bad idea. To know where your brow tail should end, feel the orbital bone around the end of your eyebrow. You will feel a little point inside of the bone – that is exactly where the brow should extend to and end. Be sure not to go overboard with the brow pencil in this area, or extend the tail in a downward motion – it can make your eyes appear droopy, which is never a good look.

Our Favorite Leo Hairstyles

Leo women are known for their luxurious, beautiful hair. Nearly every Leo woman you will encounter will be blessed with a gorgeous head of thick hair – it’s just in her makeup. Today, Lionesse is going to take a few minutes to discuss some of our favorite, seasonal Leo hairstyles today to give you an idea as to what you can do for your next style.

Woman with short trendy hairstyle

Signature Style
Leo women prefer to create their own style, rather than opting for something that’s already been done before, or something that everyone is already doing. They love to find a style they like, modify it, and make it their own. They also hate drastic changes when it comes to their hair – so developing a strong relationship with their stylist is important to them. They want to opt for a gradual change over time, not something over the top, wild, and crazy all at once.

Long Waves
Since most Leo women have long, thick hair, a great style for the Leo female is to just add some simple waves, whether beachy, boho, or glamour, and that way, the hair will look fabulous all day long, no drastic changes will be made – and this is a classy, timeless look that will work for any season, any occasion, and on any Leo woman imaginable.

Woman with center parted hair.

Center Hair Parts
Parting the hair down the center of the head doesn’t work for every zodiac sign, but you’re in luck, Leo. A center part works fabulously for you because of your thick hair, and the usual oval shaped Leo face. You can also sport a side part and it will look fabulous as well!

Bobs with Springy Curls
Women such as Charlize Theron, also a Leo, have been seen sporting a short chin length bob lately – and not only is it trendy, but it’s a classy, classic hairstyle that will look great on any Leo of any age. Adding some springy curls to the mix or some wild waves will only help your cause, Leo, so don’t be afraid to go all out and get to work styling!

Woman with sweeping fringe bangs.

Sweeping Fringe Bangs
If you want to change nothing else about your style, Leo, now is a great time to incorporate some sweeping side bangs in a fringed style into your hair look. This will look beautiful whether you want to wear your hair up or down, and will also look fantastic when you’re desire is to create a glamorous or casual style. These types of bangs work well with a Leo due to the usual oval face shape most Leos possess.

There are many small additions you can incorporate into your daily style to really give the hair something special, and there are lots of small things you can head to the salon for your favorite specialist to try as well. Small changes are big changes, as far as you’re concerned, and you want to maintain the integrity of your hair without losing volume or length – we get it! Just don’t be afraid to explore your options a bit and have fun with your style. After all, your hair is what you’re all about!

Beauty Tips for Leo Girls

Leo women are fiery, are almost always the center of attention without even trying, and are naturally beautiful. They are known as one of the fiercest signs of the astrological chart, and their personalities are very loud. They are nearly always dressed neatly, though their clothing might appear simple and a bit too casual sometimes. They do like to indulge in dressing up on occasion, but more often than not, you will catch them in something that says, ‘comfort over style’ any day.

Today, Lionesse would like to focus on the beauty aspects that will help to make a Leo girl look her best. A Leo woman doesn’t need a lot of bold makeup at all to make her look beautiful, as she has that natural gorgeous look to begin with. Let’s take a few minutes to discuss some of the best beauty practices for a Leo girl, and how you can implement them into your life today.

Soft neutral makeup

A light pink shimmery eyeshadow looks stunning on a Leo. You could also opt for a gorgeous gold shimmery hue. Leo’s shouldn’t generally wear any sort of makeup look – especially eye makeup – that is too over the top or eccentric, because your personality more than makes up for the exceptionally bold look you are not needing to indulge in. Be sure to stick to pretty, light hues and the rest of your face will fall into place.

Focus on Your Hair
Your hair is your crown jewel, Leo, so play it up. Your hair is where so much of your beauty lies. Chances are, you have a gorgeous head of hair that you love to style – and no wonder! It speaks volumes for you. Don’t be afraid to test the waters with new styles, cuts, and colors – since your hair is an integral part of who you are, Leo, it’s ok to indulge a bit.

Bold red lips and nails

Bold Lips and Nails
Though it’s not really a good idea to go for a bold eye makeup look, a Leo can get away with a bold lip and nail color combo that complements one another, or matches perfectly. Opt for a deep, rich red, or you could even opt for gold since gold is the signature color for all Leos of the world. Gold nails with red lips would look divine as well. Don’t be afraid to play up the colors in these two areas – you will only be doing yourself a favor!

pretty cat eye look

Cat Eyes
The cat eye look definitely showcases your fierce personality, Leo, and you will look stunning with a minimal cat eye. Choose dark black colors for your liner, and opt for a liquid or gel liner to get the perfect cat eye with an eyeliner brush.

Soft neutral makeup

What Doesn’t Work
You should not opt for a neutral face, as this will totally take away from your personality. Don’t be confused: though your personality speaks loud, and you don’t want to overdo it with makeup application, you also want to show a bit of your personality in your makeup look, therefore – creating the perfect look for you and what you love is what’s important.

A Look Back: Hair Tools of the 20′s

You might not know it, but hair tools did exist during the 1920’s. There were many extravagant hairstyles which required lots of styling, and without the capability of the tools in use during this time period, these styles wouldn’t have been able to have been achieved. Lionesse takes a historical look back in time at some of the favorite hair tools around during the 20’s.

Curling tong

Marcel Iron
The ‘Marcel Iron’, or curling tongs, were used to achieve the typical and infamous marcel waves which were very popular during this decade. Many women who had short bob cuts wanted to indulge in a soft look, or jazz their hair up for something special, which is why many women would opt for the marcel iron. These irons needed to be heated up on a gas stove before use, and were then tested out on a piece of paper before use on the hair to ensure adequate heat. This particular tool was the first of its kind, and paved the way of the future for the development of the curling irons we know and love in today’s modern times.

Hair pins.

Hair Pins
Hair pins were just as important back in the 20’s, if not more important, than they are today. Hair pins were used for nearly every hair style – from achieveing the style, to holding the style in place. No woman could be without them, and always had a large amount on hand at any time – whether in her purse, or at home on her vanity.

Old hair dryer.

Hair Dryers
In 1920, Hamilton Beach introduced a hair dryer, which was exceptionally large and not very home friendly due to its enormous size. In 1922, however, the first hand held blow dryer was created thanks to a smaller motor, which made it easy to hold and keep at home. These tools were used to dry wet hair, and to create styles – much like we do today. They became all the rage in the 20’s, however, they were usually only owned by those who were well off enough to afford them, as they were quite expensive for their time.

Hair Lotion
Hair lotion was used to set curls when a woman would complete a look like marcel curls, finger waves, or pin curls. The lotion was applied to damp hair, sometimes used on dry hair, and helped the curls to take, and stay in place all day long. Being that there was no hairspray back in these days, this lotion had to suffice to create the style. There was a hair gel concoction which was also homemade by many hair stylists and women who wanted to give their hair an added boost, but it was a little bit time consuming and could get expensive, so many women didn’t bother.

Sleeping cap

Sleeping Caps
If a woman completed an elaborate hairstyle, such as a curled or waved style, and didn’t want the style to be ruined when she would go to bed that night, she would put a silk sleeping cap on to hold the style in place all night, waking up to a beautiful, fresh style in the morning that would, for the most part, still be completely intact as it was the day before.

20’s Accessories to Rock Today

The roaring 20’s was a time of innovation when it came to women’s fashion and accessories. Not only were women becoming more bold and daring, but they desired to feel beautiful, sexy, and take risks in the name of beauty. Lionesse is here to provide you with some helpful tips and ideas in terms of rocking some 1920’s accessories in today’s modern world, and tell you how you can do it and make it work. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular accessories, and let us tell you how it’s done.

Woman wearing a cloche hat

Cloche hats are the epitome of 20’s accessories, and any woman who wants to get a 20’s based look needs to have one or two in their arsenal. Cloche means ‘bell’ in French, and seems fitting due to the style and design of the hat. These hats would frame the face, which was in turn why many women opted for incorporating a short bob haircut specific to the hat itself during this era. However, nowadays, women don’t need to go to those extremes – cloche hats look fabulous no matter the length of your hair. They are available in a variety of color schemes, so be sure to indulge in one for yourself to tie your look together.

Woman wearing gloves.

Gloves were an essential for any lady leaving the house back in the 20’s. Back in those days, most women wore a pair of white gloves. Today, there are many variations of the style. You can opt for white, plain silk gloves that go to about wrist length to get the look, or even choose a modernized lace style or fingerless lace style to keep it modern while resurrecting the look of the past.

Woman wearing a headband and beaded necklace

Art Deco Jewelry
Art deco was hugely popular in the 1920’s. If you’re able, opt for something like a very long string of white pearls, something no woman could be without in the 20’s. Coco Chanel made waves – and not in a good way – during the 20’s when she paired a very long pearl necklace along with a tweed suit. You can also opt for things such as jade, turquoise, and ruby jewelry as well, as these were very in style during this time.

Mary Janes or T-Strap Shoes
The shoes of the day back in the 20’s were a very sturdy buckled or t-strap style shoe. No woman would leave the house without them – they were the type of shoes women would choose to wear on a daily basis. Opt for a basic Mary Jane shoe style, or choose a modernized t-strap style to complement your look. Pair these with some seamed pantyhose for a totally vintage look.

Woman holding a parasol

Parasols just scream femininity, and they are becoming more and more popular in today’s modern times than they have been for decades. Parasols, in essence, are intricately designed, beautiful paper umbrellas in which women would use when strolling down the street. They used them to keep the sun off of their faces, and it was also a staple accessory that every woman just needed to have. Give one a try the next time you’re out and about walking down Main Street – and you just might get a lot of compliments on it!

Woman holding a beaded handbag.

Beaded Handbags
Beaded handbags are an absolute must have accessory for a true vintage 20’s look. They could be likened to the art deco style of the era. Opt for those with a very thin shoulder strap and plenty of beads, or black, plain styled handbags with a cinched closure top. These handbags were typically far smaller than were the purses and handbags we see today, as women typically only tossed a few cosmetic products into their purse such as their powder compacts and lipstick, and a money purse as well.


How to Do Pin Curls

Pin curls have been hugely popular since the early 1920’s thanks to Hollywood’s famed silent picture actresses opting for the style. Women everywhere wanted to know how they could get the look themselves, and once they learned how, the trend took off. Since that time, pin curls have remained an important style for women to complete nearly every night before heading to bed, and the look has remained strong throughout the decades after the 20’s. Today, Lionesse would like to teach you two methods to creating pin curls yourself at home – one being the original way, and the other, a more modernized way that cuts the time invested into creating the style by an immeasurable amount. It’s actually very easy to get a perfect pin curled look – and with this helpful guide, you will be well on your way to perfect pin curls whichever way you choose to create them.

Woman with traditional pin curls.

How to Create Traditional Pin Curls
Creating traditional pin curls generally involved a great deal of time, effort, and patience. The classic style of creating the curls was achieved through the method of working with damp hair, and tying the hair rolled up with cloth to the head, fastening it in place, and wrapping the head in a silk scarf before going to sleep for the night. In the morning, the cloth pieces would be removed from the head, revealing gorgeous pin curls that women were so proud to wear. This is how you can get the look yourself.

What you’ll need:

  • Curl Setting lotion or cream
  • Hairspray
  • Hair pins (any kind will do)
  • Damp Hair

Apply curl setting lotion to damp, but not wet, hair. Section off the hair into four sections and secure those sections with hair elastics, leaving the first section to be worked on down. Beginning with small 1 inch sections of hair, begin winding the hair upwards by either wrapping around the finger & winding it upwards, or you can create sort of a flat roll with the fingers and wind all the way up to the scalp. Secure with bobby pins or other hair pins to the scalp. Complete the process on the remainder of the hair. Wrap the hair with a silk scarf to wear to bed, and in the morning, remove the curls gently, allowing them to fall to the shoulders. You may brush them out with a soft bristle brush, or leave them as is. You can create the curls in all one direction, or create the ‘s’ shape hair typical to the 40’s hairstyles. You can create the ‘s’ shape by winding hair in different sections in one direction (i.e. clockwise or counter-clockwise), and wind the hair up in another section in the opposite direction. This looks the most authentic.

Woman with modern pin curls.

How to Create Modern Pin Curls
Creating modern pin curls requires far less time than the traditional pin curls, and is far easier to achieve a perfect look than one might think. All that’s required is your favorite flat iron, bobby pins or metal hair clips, and hairspray. Here’s how you can get the vintage look of old in today’s modern world:

What you’ll need:

  • Flat Iron
  • Bobby pins or metallic hair clips (think the kind stylists use)
  • Hairspray

First thing’s first, you will need to begin with clean, dry hair. Second-day hair works best. Begin by taking small 1-inch sections of your hair, and winding them around your index finger, creating a loop of hair, all the way to the scalp. Gently remove the rolled up hair from your finger, and press the roll into a flat iron for about 10-15 seconds. Remove the rolled hair from the flat iron carefully. Complete this process all over your head until you’ve curled all of the hair. Be sure to curl all of the hair in the same direction. Allow the hair to cool for about 10 minutes, and then you may go in with a boar bristle brush and run it through the hair gently to add volume and a more authentic look, or you can leave the curls as is. You can also finger tousle the curls if you’d like. Spray with hairspray, and you’re good to go! This process normally takes about an hour for long, thick hair, so if you have shorter, thinner hair, the process is a much quicker one.

Top Travel Friendly Hairstyles

Are you going to be taking a trip to your favorite getaway destination? Perhaps you may have a business meeting to tend to across the country, or you’re headed out to visit your grandma who’s celebrating her 90th birthday. Whatever the situation may be, travel takes a lot out of you – but you don’t have to sacrifice your cute hairstyle just because you’re traveling. Today, Lionesse would like to talk about a few of the top travel-friendly hairstyles that are not only practical, but fashionable as well.

Woman with a ponytail.

What style can top a ponytail for traveling, style, and comfort? None, which is why we chose this as the number one style you can wear while traveling. It’s practical, you won’t need to readjust your hair every 5 minutes, and you can’t mess it up. Ponytails are a foolproof way to get a cute style and keep things classy while traveling – no matter the length of your flight. Throw your hair into a mid-length pony to be on trend, or put it into a low pony for added comfort. You can do extras to incorporate more style, such as add hair accessories like headbands, ponytail wraps, bobby pins, or wrap a small bit of your hair around the pony to give added style, pinning it underneath to hide the ends. For a low pony, to add extra style and holdability, create a cool and classic style by separating the hair at the top of the pony, and feeding the remainder of the ponytail through – giving you a classy look that will hold itself in place all day long.

Woman with a braided hairstyle.

With so many braided styles to choose from, why wouldn’t you want to add a braid into your travel style? It’s a super cute way to look totally fashionable, while staying casual and comfy at the same time. Plus, once your hair is all tucked into a neat or even a messy braid, there’s no reason to struggle with fixing it – as pieces may fall, it will give your braid character. You can’t go wrong with a braided style. To keep the hair out of your face, opt for a crown or milkmaid braid which will keep the hair pinned to your head all day. To do more of a traditional braid, opt for a fishtail braid which always looks stylish. Try out a waterfall braid if you’d rather go for something a bit different. If you’re more of a traditional braid kind of girl and you haven’t quite gotten your braiding skills where they need to be, try a regular French braid – or opt for braided pigtails to showcase your playful side.

Woman with wavy hair in a beach.

Waves are a great style to wear when traveling – they look amazing, allow you to wear your hair down and it’s hard to mess them up. If you want natural looking waves, braid your hair while damp the night before you’re set to travel. In the morning, remove the braids to reveal perfectly waved hair. Or, if you’d rather have a more glam look, add some waves in the morning before getting ready to leave by making use of your curling iron or flat iron to give yourself a waved style. Waves created with a heat styling tool may need to be hair sprayed to keep them in place for the day, whereas waves created through means of creating braids the night before will generally stay put all day long.

Woman with a bun hairstyle.

Last but not least, buns are a great way to swoop your hair into a quick updo, getting it off your neck and shoulders and out of your face, and allowing you to go on about your day. There’s nothing fancy-schmancy about them, but there are many different bun styles to choose from to get a customized look that suits you and your personality. They also go with any outfit, and work well for any style. Be sure to use some extra bobby pins to really hold your bun in place all day when you’re traveling, and make use of hairspray to avoid needing to fix your bun or touch it up.

Summer Hair Trends to Try

If you are getting bored with your usual day to day hairstyles, why not indulge in a change? Today, Lionesse brings you some of the top summer hairstyles you can try yourself at home with a little practice.

Woman with a wet look.

Wet Look Hair
Wet looking hair can be seen all across any fashion show happening this summer, and it was also very popular in the 90’s. Now that it’s making a comeback, try to indulge in this style by adding gel and water to the top of your hair, brushing it throughout, and securing it in a bun or ponytail style. This also works well for a French twist.

Woman with a bun wrap

Buns and Bun Wraps
A new take on an old favorite is creating a bun and using what is known as a bun wrap, usually including pretty floral embellishments such as daisies or sunflowers, around the hair after securing it. It adds something special to a very simple style, and looks amazing for summer with any fashion.

Utilizing Hair Accessories
Incorporating hair accessories to your summer style is the perfect way to get a cool summer look. Right now, large flower accents are super trendy, as is incorporating a real flower, such as a rose, or gardenia, into a bun style. Headbands and old retro pieces from the 30’s and 40’s are also becoming exceptionally popular.

Crimped Ponytails
Adding a few crimped sections of hair into a traditional ponytail is a great way to stay on trend, while creating a simple hairstyle that looks fabulous for summer.  Be sure to break out the old crimper, or go to town by creating a few very small braids the night before you intend on wearing the style. Remove the braids to reveal crimped like hair, and put it all up into a low ponytail to complete the look.

Woman with dip dyed hair

Dip Dyed Hair
Dip dyed hair is super fun and easy to do. You can use an actual hair dye in a bright, bold color, or even use a more traditional color to attain somewhat of an ombre effect. Or, you could utilize good old fashioned Kool-Aid powder and boiling water – many tutorials are available online – to get a less damaged hair look that will be bright and bold without the chemical additives. This method also causes far less damage to the hair, and will last for quite a long while.

Woman with a rainbow hairstyle

Rainbow Hair
Rainbow hair colors offer a bright, bold pop of color to the hair that will help you truly personalize and customize your own hair look. Creating your perfect color mix is all about implementing parts of you into the style, and the fun thing about it is – you don’t even need to worry about what colors go with your skin tone, because rainbow hair is all about personal preference.

We hope there is a style within this article that you find cute and fun for summer. We encourage our readers to get creative with their daily hair style. If you find your inner creativity and spark it up, you can never be bored with your style!
