So I got my hair colored (freshened up) for Brazil and I'm crazy about it.
It had been dyed a dark brownish red with some blond highlights, but the red faded fast and it ended up being a plain dark brown with a bit of blond. The half-inch roots were nasty--dark brown and gray--not a nice look for anyone.
My stylist decided to dye all the ends super-red and the gray roots red. It is the most amazing look. It sounds weird and edgy and it is. Color all over and especially at the roots. I've never seen this done before with red and so here are some pictures by LoveHubbie:
