Color Theory

Highlights from three top salons make the high list.
Color Theory Highlights from three top salons make the high list.

The best hair color is like you, only better. It should shimmer with the subtlest of flips and sparkle when the sun hits—all while giving your locks a certain je ne sais quoi of sexiness. It takes its cue from your personality and has your natural coloring as its palette; anything deviating too much from both only results in a bout of buyer's remorse and mild schizophrenia. Or worse: a bad hair day.


A successful, three-dimensional color is the result of a comprehensive, nitpicky combination of shades and processing. For those open to the whole nine yards (and with a healthy degree of celebrity delusion), a base color followed by highlights, lowlights, eyebrow tinting and a treatment to seal everything in is all in a day's work. Extreme leftists merely opt for a color-depositing cellophane sheen to match their equally low-maintenance lifestyle. And for middle-of-the-road travelers lies the finely-streaked finished product, a careful balance of base, highlights and post-color shine.


For time-challenged beauty junkies—like our Style Bible staffers—with the latter lies our sweet spot. Read on as signature color packages from the city's salon forerunners treat our girls right.
