Am I the only one who has been spotting more and more fanny packs being sported? Is something that many of us dreaded so much making a comeback? To answer those questions, yes, they are in fact making a comeback, but in a more modern way.
During New York Fashion Week, 2013 models walked the runway in very chic and fashionable fanny packs. Maybe this thing that was so uncool will make a popular comeback.

Fall is pretty much here and you’ve grown weary of your summer blonde hair, now you’re ready to go darker for fall. Before slapping a dark brown or black color in your hair lets evaluate this situation. In a previous posting I discussed transitioning from dark hair to blonde hair and explained that the transition is a journey. Well, going from a light blonde (level nine and above) to dark brown or black requires a journey as well.
I always recommend getting your color done professionally for services such as this versus doing it yourself because more than likely, if you’re not a professional it will not be done correctly, which means if your not realistic of your color expectations you could be shelling out hundreds and hundreds of dollars for color correction. So, all in all it’s best to get it done right the first time.
Getting to the “why” of my statement above; if you want to go from light blonde hair to dark brown or black hair it is important to have the hair repigmented. Pigmentation has to do with color, right? So, when the hair is lightened/bleached, the hair has loss of pigmentation. Meaning, color has to be put back in the hair before applying a darker tone. Without adding pigmentation to the light blonde causes the hair to turn that dark, unwanted-green color when you apply a very dark color over an extremely light color.
Keep in mind, if you’re seeking a dark brown or black end result, this may require more than one setting if you’re more on the platinum blonde side. You will not have to have the hair repigged your second trip because of the initial application, but you may not be at the darkest level you’re seeking the first trip, which means you’ll be able to obtain your end result in a second session. To explain, if you went from a level 10 and obtained a level four after your repig, but you’re seeking a level two (darkest brown), during your next salon visit you can possibly achieve that level during your next color session.
All in all, play it smart when it comes to your color. When in doubt, seek out a professional.
I always stress step out the norm and don’t be afraid of color when it comes to makeup. So, I stepped out my comfort zone and played in blue eyeshadow. Here’s my birthday outing look.
