I depend on my colorist like I depend on food to survive. What is it about these people that sends us into a needy mess when we find out they're moving or all of the sudden quitting the business? Color is so personal and when we find a person who does it absolutely perfectly it's difficult to be willing to take a chance on someone new because after all, they really don't "know" your hair like Lisa-Jo, Amy or Charlene did.
There's also that same stressed feeling when we look at our hair and that familiar ugly dark landing strip is parting our head like the Red Sea. In these emergency situations we are not alone thanks to temporary coloring products such as Oscar Blandi's Pronto Colore Root Touch Up & Highlighting Pen. They work to bridge those few days or weeks until our next hair color appointment. This product was just featured in the December 2011 issue of Martha Stewart Living as the go-to hair item that offers great coverage or re-growth and to keep the grays at bay and also create subtle highlights.
The Oscar Blandi Pronto Colore Root Touch Up & Highlighting Pen works just like a thick mascara wand. All you have to do is lightly brush it through the roots like you would as if you were painting your nails. The product goes on wet but will dry pretty quickly. Just be mindful not to touch your hair to much as some of the color may be visible on your hands. This is an ideal product just to get you through those desperate hair color situations we come across every so often and is a great way to save money by elongating the time in between color appointments. Our PR person and uber-stylish gal Kendra absolutely swears by this product to get her roots camoflaged for the last minute cocktail party or meeting!
