Oil Slick Rainbow Hair for the Holidays

Oil Slick Rainbow Hair for the Holidays

Though my original plan was to update my hair and sort of transition back to more natural tones (like a mix of various coppers and caramels, maybe with one vivid color as an accent), my go-to colorist, Lauren, just got married and is heading off on her honeymoon and I didn't think to book ahead...

Full Spectrum by CoverGirl: Is this what a celebration of people of color looks like?
