Follow our expert tips and tricks for gorgeous, face-framing color that enhances the natural beauty of your hair. So what are you waiting for? Grab your favorite deep conditioner (make sure it’s color-safe, like Pureology Hydrate Hydra Whip), and follow the links above for each hair type. It’s time to color!
