Hey Hair Color Fans,
So my birthday is coming up soon (cards/presents to the usual address…) and I’ve decided to treat myself to microloop hair extensions. My hair is already styled pretty long but it can quickly look limp and flat in the summer heat so I am hoping the extensions will add a little volume.
Maybe it’s because I was born in the 80’s but I am a great believer in the romantic and magical powers of big hair!
Anyway I stopped by the salon to book my appointment and I was genuinely surprised when they asked which shade I wanted for the extensions. I hadn’t even thought about color – I know, it must be the first time ever – and its fair to say I was like a kid in a sweet shop when they brought out the color wheel!
I’ve got a big decision ahead – do I play it safe and match the extensions to my current color (auburn), venture a few shades either side or go wild with crazy neon? I’ve already changed my mind three times since the start of this letter
*note to self, commission an article about two tone color options and quickly*

Hair Color News
70 year old Harrison Ford has ditched the grey in favour of a brand new auburn shade.
If I’m being honest I am not entirely convinced by Harrison’s new look (I’ve said it before, I’m a big fan of the silver fox look, as Harrison is rocking on the left).
However, he is Han Solo, so I guess he can do whatever he wants.
- Let’s face it, you are either a “looks great in a hat” person or you’re, how can we put this, not. Several of us amongst the HCC team are in the latter camp and so we’d like to thank SIlive.com for a well timed article about how to protect your hair from damage during the summertime
- Talking of summertime, Daily Venus Diva has a great ‘how to’ on creating the sun dipped hair effect
And to continue the summer theme (I think all this sun has gone to my head!) Miley Cyrus has been stepping out in a lighter, “beach blonde” shade.
Now I loved the retro dirty blonde that Miley was rocking earlier in the year so I am going to take some convincing on the new look but what the hell, summer is here!
Celebrity Hair Color of the Week – Selena Gomez
Selena has truly embraced the summer this week, sporting a new, lighter shade. Yes the 19 year old has been spotted out and about with stunning auburn locks, a subtle but pretty change from her usual raven hue.
Selena wowed the crowds at the Hotel Transylvania launch but no news yet on whether Justin Bieber, who the star is dating, is equally smitten with her new red hair.
We wouldn’t have put Selena down as a fiery red hair but the soft, classy auburn shade is just perfect for the teenage actress – proving once and for all the golden rule of our very own Anthony Anders; for the best result never stray more than a few shades away from your natural color!Hair Extensions, Hans Solo and Selena Gomez!,
