It seems Demi Lovato is still in her blue period. The X Factor judge stepped out for the premiere of Disney's Frozen this week with her freshly coloured hair pulled back into a tousled up 'do. Perhaps it was in spirit on the film, but Demi's hair was a rich, radiant shade of blue. She complemented her azure mane with a neutral makeup palette that featured a shimmering bronze shadow dusted all over her lids. What do you think of Demi's jewel-toned hair?
The Hairchalk colour fades after two to 10 washes, depending on your hair colour, and will also be available for purchase in salons for at-home treatments. Brand ambassador Alexa Chung showed off her braided look accented with L'Oréal Professionnel's Hairchalk (pictured above) on Instagram. The collection hits European salons this month, while we'll have to wait to find out when it'll hit Oz. Each bottle has up to 10 treatments.
There is very little not to love about Rachel McAdams. From Mean Girls to The Notebook, the actress has shown that she can pull off a variety of roles — and a variety of beauty looks.

- Try a clarifying shampoo: These types of cleansers are full of colour-stripping surfactants (the stuff that makes your shampoo and soaps lather). The faster you can get to your freshly dyed hair, the better; just make sure you deep condition afterwards.
- Call the hotline: If you experience unwanted results from an at-home hair colour, immediately call the hotline number on the side or back of the box. The company representative can offer you professional advice on what to do next.
- Face the facts: The only true way to lighten colour is to remove it. But once that unwanted colour has been removed from your hair, sometimes toners have to be added to colour-correct. Sure, there are colour-removing products like L'Oreal ColorZap ($9.49) readily available, but if your too-dark colour is still not looking right, heading to a professional is probably the best option.
How to prevent it in the first place: Since semi-permanent or demi-permanent colours typically fade a lot faster than permanent colours, they are often more gentle for the home colourist. And when colouring your hair at home, go only one to two levels lighter or darker than your natural hair colour to avoid "oh no" moments. While most at-home colour includes a description of what the shade will be (such as medium-light brown), keep in mind that level one equals black and level 10 is light blonde.
