Haircolor Q&A

Haircolor Q&A

Autumn is here, and as the leaves change for the year, so do many people's haircolor. Traditionally, fall is the season when people darken their haircolor, as clients shy away from blonde and lean towards shades of auburn, chestnut, cinnamon, and cocoa. Colors such as these evoke a feeling of richness and warmth, which is just right for the end of summer. I've decided to devote this month's article to answering some of the reader questions I have received over the course of the last year pertaining to haircoloring.  Q: What causes my roots to turn out lighter than the rest of my hair after it's been dyed? A: This result occurs because the hair that is closer to the scalp processes faster than the hair away from the scalp…

Men’s Skincare

Men’s Skincare

I probably wouldn't be going out on a limb if I said that most men don't think about their skin. Leave it to the women to worry about smile lines and wrinkles and bags under the eyes, you may say.

First Annual Editor’s Choice Hair Care Awards 2017

Welcome, dear reader, to my first-ever hair-care awards, where I select the best of all the hair care products.

This is an award show like no other (considering there aren't any actual awards to give out, nor is this an actual award show). To give it an authentic awards show feel, I've even gone out and rented an Armani tuxedo....okay, I lied, I'm sitting here in khakis and a sweatshirt...but at least I've placed the winners' names in nice little envelopes. Okay, I lied about that too.…
