L’Oreal Couleur Experte

Don’t try to pretend you don’t color your hair. Even if you have just a tiny bit of gray, you probably use some off-the-shelf color or get it done at a salon. (If you don’t, you’re looking older than you have to, unless you have really dynamite gray.) Personally, I can’t stand to pay anyone to do something I can do myself (except clean house), so I’m of the do-it-yourself mindset. I’m recommending L’Oreal Couleur Experte (oooh, French!), but, honestly, I buy whatever I find on sale. I mention this particular product because, believe it or not, it is incredibly easy to highlight your own hair and this one makes it even easier.

That said, I only buy this when it’s on sale; other times I look for other highlighters because I don’t highlight every time I color. But here’s what I do do (and here’s my secret): I use one of those old caps with the pull-through holes in it. This way, I get even highlighting all throughout my hair. Of course, at least once I’ve left the highlighter on too long (didn’t hear the timer) and had to pull the hair color bottle out of the trash and reapply over the highlights for a few minutes. Believe it or not, I got tons of compliments.
