With the buzz about “Granny Gray” strands or look-at-me hues in pink, blue or green—there’s no need to feel left out of the trendy arena if your lifestyle requires a more “conservative” hairstyle choice. After all, once you leave the 9-5 grind you’ve the freedom to unleash your creativity when it comes to your coif! So consider this fun short snip: tapered sides frame your cheekbones and blend seamlessly with a tailored nape—but it’s along the crown where all the magic happens. Here, longer lengths are curled and picked out for beautiful volume and kissed with purple “highlights.” Opt to craft the color move with clip-in pieces or use a temporary shade (like hair chalk) that’ll wash out when you’re ready to convert your coif.
