How can I prevent my highlights from turning brassy?

Erica Weber, Westport, CT

Bobbi: The sun interacts with every shade of hair color and causes them to oxidize (even in winter), so it's smart to wear a hat whenever you're outside. When my champagne-colored highlights start looking brassy, my colorist mixes me a purple/blue-based shampoo (the tint takes out those coppery tones).

While it won't make my highlights champagne again, it does turn them a soft brown. Wash with it at least once a week to keep your highlights (whatever their color) from turning on you. Or run back to the salon for a toner—it won't cover grays, but it will extend the life of your highlights.
