Let’s just say that switching things up for my hair was a long time coming. I’ve never colored my hair before because I really liked my natural hair color–it was chocolate brown with natural streaks of highlights–plus, I’d always heard my mother’s words in the back of my head: “why dye your hair now when

As a college senior approaching graduation day, I could definitely use a major confidence boost. Between final exams and job applications, I’m completely swamped and totally exhausted.  So a few weeks ago, I decided to give myself a much-needed jolt of energy by making the ultimate hair color transformation: dying my hair red. Although I’d

Are you bored with your hair? Do you feel like your cut or color is outdated or no longer matches your lifestyle? Or is there a inspiring celebrity style you’d love to try, if you could go to an amazing stylist? Ladies’ Home Journalis looking for women who are ready to make a big hair

When I moved to New York City two months ago to start working at LHJ, I knew I wanted a fresh look. I had graduated from the University of Missouri (go Tigers!) a few months prior, and my long locks just felt so, well, college. It was time to trade my Katie Holmes á la
