After Â a few seasons of coloring my hair a shade or two darker,Â I decided it was time to return to my natural born color of light coppery auburn. I went to see a colorist who turned me into a cross between a tomato and a pineapple. Â Although I am a risk taker where fashion is concerned, I trend towards the more traditional with my hair. Â I was simply unaware that color correction is such a tricky process. Â After speaking with a colleague, he assured me that he knew someone who could get me to take off my newly adorned fedora and switch my color back from Ronald McDonald red to something less clownish. Â I arrived at the salon and met with Miss Pepper Pastor on 223 Front Street in the South Street Seaport. Â Within minutes, the salon made me feel welcome and at ease that this week and a half long fiasco, complete with hat head, would finally be left behind. Ladies and Gentleman, Pepper Pastor did not disappoint. Â She returned my hair back to spun copper, and made me feel like I was ready to conquer the world. Â She alsoÂ made me laugh and told me about a fantastic organic coffee shop across the street (Jackâ€™s). I had forgotten how amazing a cappucino tastes when you have good hair. Â Thank you Pepper, my tresses are forever in your exceptionally talented hands.
To keep your color looking luxurious,Â Pepper suggests using Oribe’s Beautiful Color Shampoo ($36) and Conditioner ($39).
