10 Reasons Your Hair Color Is Making You Look Washed Out

You Didn’t Adjust Your Shade Slow Enough

As AJ Lordet, eSalon’s east coast color ambassador, says seasonal hair-color changes are always in demand. “Traditionally, in rising temperatures clients want to brighten their color. Surprisingly, this season is showing a departure from the usual summer blond, and we are seeing clients deepen their allover shade. Both options are beautiful, fun and fresh. Making a hair color change is incredibly exciting, but there’s nothing more frustrating than having your newly updated color wash you out. To avoid this, I recommend adjusting your shade slowly over time, rather than making huge color jumps. Extreme color changes, either too dark or too light, can look unnatural or unflattering against the skin.”
