New York Fashion Week is definitely a time when you want to look your best and possibly stand out among a sea of fashionable women, so when Aloxxi invited me create a “head-turning look” with fresh locks, I jumped at the chance. Like many blondes, I’ve been highlighting my hair for years, but I still have trouble communicating what I really want with a stylist. Whenever I want a change, I always bring in pictures and have an idea in my head of what look I’m going for, but a stylist will usually tell me I’m all over the place. So, armed with no clue what I wanted, yesterday I headed over to the Devachan Salon in SOHO and met with the amazing Aloxxi Artistic Advisor Marilyn. She totally put me at ease with a full consultation complete with photos and hair swatches of what I could expect.Aloxxi has created what they call Color Personalities, an idea that’s really pretty genius, and it turns out my personality is “Blonde Bambino.” With over 100 color personalities to choose from, the overall end results (created by professional hairdressers) will change how you define your hair color into fun, memorable personalities, instead of something you find hard to put into words. After yesterday’s Blonde Bambino transformation, my hair felt soft, healthy, and manageable, and there was definitely a little bounce in my step. I left the salon feeling ready to take on my first day of NYFW (and maybe even turn a head or two).
