While we’d love to switch up our hair colors as often as Lady Gaga, the hefty price tag of a salon visit (and memories of our tragic teen experiments with drugstore kits) usually stops us from trying a new shade.
So, with fiscal responsibility in mind, we enlisted People and Culture Manager Nicole (whose unofficial title is Peanut Butter Puffins Supplier) to test out KELLY VAN GOGH®’s Master Blend Color. A dusty-blonde who’s prone to an occasional grey strand, Nicole chose Van Gogh’s Medium Cool Blonde to give her locks a brighter golden hue. As a veteran of at-home coloring, she was impressed by the Kit’s salon-quality tools. She loved the “awesome” black rubber gloves that came inside each kit. And thanks to the dye’s gentle, caviar oil-infused formula, she reported that her strands actually felt softer post-rinse—pretty crazy, huh?
The rich gold blended perfectly with Nicole’s existing highlights while covering up any pesky greys. While we’re well aware that professional colorist Kelly Van Gogh’s products are top-of-the-line, we were relieved that Nicole loved her newly revamped locks—after all, we’d never dare to anger the woman in charge of deciding which cereals to stock in the Birchbox pantry.
