Biolage ColorLast Purple Shampoo For Blonde Hair
There are a million purple shampoos out there for blondes (we get it), but not all of them live up to the hype. Biolage’s ColorLast Purple Shampoo neutralizes both brass and yellow tones with the help of ingredients like orchid and fig.
Biolage ColorLast Purple Shampoo For Blonde Hair, $19.00 MSRP
When you come back from the beach with bronzy, sun-kissed skin, it’s impossible to look yourself in the mirror and not think damn, girl. Now you can transfer that feeling to your hair with the help of a color technique called (what else?) hair bronzing.
It’s time for a change, but you still have to fit into the office dress code—what’s a girl to do? We’re obsessed with milkshake hair colors for May. These subtle shades give you that first flush of color without overwhelming your face and the rest of your personal style.

Kérastase Soleil Collection
That first really warm day of spring, there’s nothing we want more than to roast ourselves in the sun. You know what else can get roasted? Your hair (and your color). The newly-renewed Kérastase Soleil collection—which includes a mask, a hair cream, texturizing hair oil spray, and a post-sun cleanser—targets seasonal aggressors like chlorine, UV rays, and salt to keep you looking like a part-time mermaid.
Biolage Hair Color
There’s a new (old) trend popping up on the internet: henna hair color. If you’ve never played with hair color before or just want a subtle change, squeezing pigment out of a henna tube before sounds like an affordable and quick fix—but there’s a reason why henna is henna and not hair dye. Stay tuned for our expert’s take on whether or not you should use henna on your precious hair and why Biolage hair color might just be the dose of plant-based color you've been searching for.
