The Lipstick League Question of the Week
Do you color your hair? If so, do use at-home products or do you leave it to professionals?
G's answer: I do it myself, and I pretty much always have. I'm pretty loyal to Wella Color Charm liquid from Sally Beauty, because all of the stylists I know seem to agree that it covers gray the longest (and I find that to be true myself, since I've tried many other brands/formulas over the years). I also am just consistently happy with the results of Color Charm, no matter which shades I use (sometimes I mix shades, but only on the adivce of hair stylists because I've learned that there are some shades that shouldn't be mixed. I am not a colorist so I leave it to my friends who are when it comes to mixing advice!).
