Celebrity Hair Trend: Platinum Blonde

Stars and fashionistas alike have been going platinum blonde lately, ditching their natural and fashion colors…even their length, for this more on-trend look.  Whether due to the 70’s fashion trend dominating runways, for a role, or simply a major change- allegedly  the case for Katy Perry after a breakup- this hair transformation has made for…

Feria Smokey Pastels Smokey Blue Fail

When I finally decided on a Feria Smokey Pastels color, Smokey Blue, I was so very disappointed that, like all Feria Boxed colors, it did not deliver.  I was given this deep bold blue, not the silvery pastel blue shown on the box.  Each and every time I have tried Feria boxed hair colors, it’s…

DIY TieDye Pastel Hair
