What care should you have when dyeing your hair for Halloween?
"Do a deep conditioner before to help even out the porosity and make sure you have a clarifying shampoo on hand for when you have to wash it out," says Kristina Dimoplon, stylist at Live By the Sword Salon in Brooklyn, New York.
Dimoplon also suggests that those with processed and dry hair might risk getting stains on their strands, and those with "super" beach blonde hair should consider a wig as an alternative.
No matter what you're doing this All Hallow's Eve—going out, staying in, dressing up or dressing down—we highly recommend indulging in the scariest movies on Netflix. October would be incomplete without 'em!
