#TeamCLEO Mane Makeover: How To Rock Ash Brown Hair
Choosing the right hair colour can be a life-crisis - especially if you're a newbie like me.
In a nutshell: I never dyed my hair or considered it because of the commitment, special hair and constant touch-ups -- so high maintenance and #RIPbankaccount. But this year, I decided to give it a go - with statement fiery red highlights a la Pretty Little Liars' Aria Montgomery during her pre-A days.
While the red did made me feel like a bad-a$$... it just wasn't me. So I continued searching for a natural-looking colour that had some edge.
Nigel Chong from Hair Soho @ 176 Avenue created a custom ash-brown mix to complement my pale-tan skin tone. At Hair Soho, choose from either warm or cool undertones- warm undertones brightens up the ash, while cool undertones amplify the smokeyness. I opted for a cool undertone to fully embrace the smokey look and to tame my previous red highlights.
