MAD ABOUT HUE
KIM VO ON THE GO
Vo details about the "don'ts" for summer 'dos.
As the weather heats up and clients begin seriously thinking about a new look, the time is ripe to address some of the season's "don'ts."
To start, certain haircolors should be strictly avoided during summer months. Take, for instance, bright red shades. At the risk of sounding like a wanna-be chemist, the red molecule is smaller than most, so it falls out of the hair more quickly than other shades do. Add rays from the sun that are steeply angled and high in the sky, toss a convertible into the mix and you've got a recipe for a bleached-out redhead.
Likewise, ash tones should be set aside until autumn rolls around. The sun tends to bleach ash shades to corn yellow and lima-bean green, so unless your client has a strong desire to look like she's wearing a bowl of succotash on her head, steer clear.
