You can any day change your hair color. It is your birthright but it’s not without its follies. everyone who messes with dye has scrambled to figure out how to get rid of brassy, orange hair at one point or another.

I’m a brunette and I started coloring her hair in eighth grade — a semipermanent potion that imparted a quintessentially late-’90s auburn tint that I applied in my friend Elisabetta’s Upper East Side bathroom — and since have experimented with almost every shade in the book: Black, Debra Messing red, mousy brown, light brown, espresso brown and DIY ombré among them.
Eventually, I realized that the best and most flattering color for my skin tone is cool medium brown with a few blond highlights. Easy, right? You’d think, but it’s taken me years to pin down a colorist who understands the exact science of working with brown and blond without depositing any warm tones whatsoever.
