Once your new color is processed, you can now bring it a step further with temporary additions for one special occasion. Sparkles are a big hit this season and they can be applied by anyone who has ever put on mascara _ the brushes are identical. They come in every shade from silver to diamond onyx and when caught in the light, the sparkle is fabulous! Just don't overdo it.
Before having any kind of color applied to your hair, select a salon with a certified color professional. Not every hairdresser is an expert in color. Find a salon that specializes in color and ask about the qualifications of their staff. Usually a high end colorist will charge more, but it's worth it. Considering you are looking for something for the holidays, think of this as a gift to you.
