Hair Color Inspiration with Kristina Barricelli

Let’s just say it: You don’t like to blend in.  You are the type of confident, fashion forward girl who likes to stand out. However, we all get a bit nervous before making a big change, especially when it comes to hair color. If you were thinking about going red, or something even wilder (like blue or pink!) check out these temporary options to test out the look before you commit.

Kristina Barricelli, Creative Consultant for TouchBack and Streekers, has been in the industry for over ten years and is trusted for her expertise by an impressive list of celebrity clientele including Miley Cyrus, Kristen Chenoweth and Vanessa Hudgens! See her suggestions below:

  • “Rose gold and auburns will be a hot transition for light to medium blondes this fall. Strawberry blonde to auburn color makes a statement. An easy way to achieve the look at-home, especially if you have commitment issues when it comes to color, is to shampoo and condition with TouchBack Plus in Light Auburn.”
  • “If you are a brunette with a little bit of auburn in it, I’m saying, really go red! Leave behind passe neutral browns and head in a trendier direction, try TouchBack Plus in Dark Auburn. You get the look without the commitment as the color will rinse out after a few shampoos. If you take the salon route and permanently go red, use the shampoo and conditioner to keep color true.”

  • “If you want brightly colored dip-dyed ends, grab a Streeker in your preferred color and saturate the tips with the sponge applicator. I suggest using an index card to ensure that color is evenly distributed and so it stays off your fingertips. Allow the product to dry and then lightly brush through it so it looks soft and touchable. This look is huge with celebrities.”
  • If you want a pop of pink, blue, purple etc. Grab a small section of hair and drench it in your desired color. Wait for it to dry and then braid that piece with two others for a fresh look that is on trend but not overdone.
