Hey Hair Color Fans,
So I found out this week that I am one in a million, at least when it comes to hair color!
I had my color consultation for microloop extensions, having decided that I would go for a two tone effect (current color + lighter shade), but none of the hundreds of shades on the wheel matched my locks.
Yep, it seems my current red/brown/orange combination, an entirely accidental blend of various home color kits and professional treatments, is truly unique.
I just need a name for my trademark color – tequila sunrise maybe? – then I can pitch it to the big cosmetic brands, I figure they must always be on the search for new hues!
In the meantime I’m just hoping that my mix and match hair extensions look edgy and interesting, rather than clumsy and artificial – watch this space, full report (and if you’re lucky pictures) to follow next week.
Don’t forget if you’ve got any comments about Hair Color Code or suggestions for features you’d like to see on the site then drop me a line on [email protected]
Just for Fun…
Which celebrity said in an interview:
“I don’t ever look at hair colors as mistakes. It’s fun. Who wants to look the same their entire life? Every day I wake up it’s a different color and that’s what I love so much about my hair.”
Answer next week!

Finally, some hair color news we really didn’t see coming here at HairColorCode as Niall Horan from One Direction releases a photograph of himself with purple, yes purple hair!
We’re sure manager Simon Cowell allowed himself a sigh of relief when it turned out that the purple tint was just a bleach to lighten Niall’s locks to a sunkissed blonde.
Celebrity Hair Color of the Week
We’re loving the slightly darker hair color that Taylor Swift was rocking this week in her new campaign for CoverGirl.
The 22-year-old musician experimented with some unexpected looks for the campaign – including rocker and glam – and the move away from her signature blonde shade certainly helped the transformation.
The darker color equals a more sophisticated look for Taylor and definitely suits her maturing style so its a big thumbs up from the HCC Team.
