Another thing that's changed from when your mom used to color her grays away under the cover of darkness is the quality of the products available. It's been a long time since anyone has gotten even a whiff of any strong, offensive smelling products in salons. Those have long since disappeared or been replaced by gentler formulations that are free, or mostly free from ammonia, peroxide or other harsher chemicals.
Some of the most interesting hair color ideas, however, do not come from professionals but from celebrities who sport unique looks to stand out in a crowd. Not only do they manage to start off a fad, they also help create some very interesting hair color ideas. So if you have a favorite movie star you associate yourself with, you can always check out the hair colors they have sported now and in the past. Try not to choose a hair color idea which does not suit your personality as that is something you will be very uncomfortable in once you get it done!
