Those searching for a way to update their locks without cutting their hair need to look no further than a change in hair color - as these before and after makeovers show...

Brunette to Blonde Makeover

Model with long hairWhile there's no real proof that blondes do have more fun, I think our model would agree that changing her hair color from brunette to blonde certainly gave her a reason to celebrate!

Her switch in hue has given her a jaw dropping new look and her hair a new lease on life.

Going blonde is a big commitment and is by no means a low maintenance hair color. If you're thinking of switching to a blonde shade then make sure you do a little research first (check out our range of articles, such as Blonde Hair Color Tips, Tricks and Suggestions), work out if the color is right for you (try it on your own photo in our Virtual Hairstyler), and ensure you'll be committed to the color up-keep before stepping into the salon.

Brunette to Red Makeover

The look of her locks has gone from dull to glossy and her complexion has been instantly warmed!

Although a red hair color can fade very quickly if not looked after, it can really pack a punch when it's in top notch condition. Red hair colors also look stunning no matter the shade, and when you've got a huge variety of light reds, copper reds, dark reds and bright reds to choose from, then there's no reason to think you can't find the right red hair color for you!
