Beauty Tips Inspired By The Olympics

After two weeks of rounding up patriotic fashions, Olympic-inspired must-have products and our favorite fashion designers from around the world, we wanted to squeeze in a few more lasting beauty tips that will help you unwind from the hype and stress of the Summer Games... and maybe go gold yourself.

Gold and bronze beyond the Summer Games

Christina Hendricks hair color
"It's no longer the been-there, done-that blonde, brunette and red colors," says Bruno.
Debra Messing hair color
"Natural bronze, bright gold and apricot are the big hues in Southern California," he goes on.
Nicole Kidman hair color
Take note from these leading ladies! "[They have] rich polished hints of caramel and strawberry."

What's with these colors?

Bruno Etur, a master colorist for Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon in West Hollywood, has a knack for making sure colored hair looks totally natural. His expertise tells us that bronze and gold deserve celebration beyond the Summer Games and suggests that bold hair hues like bronze, copper and apricot should be standing on a podium somewhere while anthems are hummed in the background.

How to prolong your color

To maintain your color, Bruno says get a gloss! "Hair glossing takes 20 minutes at the salon and costs around $35."

He let us know that it can be matched to any hair color -- you can seal the deal at the time of your initial color but can also get the treatment in between colorings to maintain the vividness.

I love the idea of letting these colors last well beyond the Olympic games! The bronze color is gorgeous and perfect for the upcoming fall months.
