So you’ve just spent big bucks to highlight or color your hair. You love your locks: The shade is warm and vibrant, and you’ve got shine and body you never knew your ‘do was capable of. Now, how do you keep that color?
“Think of it this way: You and your stylist are partners,” insists Joseph, head colorist at New York City’s Mark Garrison Salon. “He helps you find the hue that’s best for you — one that complements your skin tone and eyes and makes your hair look healthy. But after he’s finished with his job, it’s time for yours.”
According to Joseph, there are several dos and don’ts when it comes to dyeing. “You can’t just walk out of the salon and expect your color to live happily ever after,” he says. “You have to be diligent in the products you use and the way you protect your hair.”
