By finding the most flattering shade of hair color, Rita says you can take years off your look. "The mistake women make that ages them is that they bleach out their hair too much," she says. "As we age as women, our skin tone changes. So we have to change the hair color to compensate for not having as much youthful skin as we used to have."
Rita says playing around with your hair color can be a fun way to update your look each season. "It's the foundation of your makeup, your wardrobe. You get to play around with your personality a little bit and change the color."
Though Rita stresses that if you want color, you have to maintain it! "You can't walk around with six-inch roots," she says.
