Do you have any quick hair-drying tips?
--Katie Greenthal, Los Angeles, CA
Bobbi: Step out of the bathroom—the humidity in there extends your drying time. Blot (don’t rub!) wet hair with an absorbent microfiber towel and air-dry for a bit. In a pinch, facial moisturizer can double as a hair product, preventing frizz, according to my hairstylist, Eric Dominguez of Eric Salon in Montclair, New Jersey.
Do I need to change my makeup if I change my hair color?
—Rosa An, New York City
Bobbi: For the most part, adding a few highlights or going slightly lighter or darker won’t affect the colors you wear on your face because your skin tone stays the same. However, any drastic hair change may require some makeup tweaks.
Going much lighter? Switch to cooler shades like light pinks on your cheeks, purples on your eyes, and pinky-reds on your lips. If you go dark, try warmer shades like rose and berry colors. If you go red, use caramel colors on your lips and eyes.
How can I keep my hair color from turning brassy in the summer?
--Katie McConnaughey, Queens, New York
Bobbi: The best strategy is to shield your hair from the sun. My colorist says UV rays love to break apart hair-dye molecules, which can lead to fading. I’m a fan of baseball hats in the summer, but you can also wear a bandanna. At the beach, I protect my hair by coating it with regular spray-on sunscreen, which leaves it super-shiny. Also, I use a color-correcting shampoo or conditioner that eliminates brassiness by depositing just a bit of color pigment.
