Since New York Fashion Week just ended and we are in the middle of London Fashion Week, then off to Milan and Paris we wanted to check in with Michael about changing your hair color after seeing what’s happening on the runway.

Lives of Style: When is the best time to change your hair color?

Michael: I know fashionistas might be seeing something on the runway and you might want to change your hair color to be “on trend.” My advice is, I would never change my hair color near my birthday or Christmas. Don’t change your hair color in any weak moments. The holidays are around the corner so you may not want to dabble with a new hue until you have more time to change it back if you don’t like it.

Lives of Style: How far should you change a hair color?

Michael: Remember you are born with the right color for your face, so if you do want a change you should keep that natural color involved somehow. You want to get a color that looks natural and well-blended, color that looks great without looking like it’s trying. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again because it’s important for natural looking color–Don’t go one more level lighter than your base.

Lives of Style: What can you do if your client’s hair is very dry and has breakage before you color the hair?

Michael: Your hair can get brittle if you are over bleaching or over using heat. It’s important to let your colorist know what’s really going on. I’ve always suggest cutting after coloring so your hair cutter can clean up the hair once it’s been done. I also want to mention that if you are changing your hairstyle then you should always color afterward. The colorist needs to see what you’ve done so they can make it perfect. I want to see where the style is so I can highlight specifically to it.
