Calling all would-be redheads: If you've decided to take that walk on the wild side that is rocking a copper top, you probably know by now, either by experience or because someone has told you (and if not, then consider yourself warned), that red color is a terribly tricky tint to maintain, living up to its reputation as a physical trait that signals a mercurial temperament. Above all others, it is most notorious for faster-than-normal fade-out, so it's important to enter into this metamorphosis knowing the best ways to keep red hair looking vibrant, bold, and bright.
It never fails. You think you've impeccably buried every piece of evidence pointing to a long night followed by an early wake-up call, or perhaps you got the best eight hours of uninterrupted sleep that you've had in months— whatever the case, you're feeling relatively bright-eyed and bushy-tailed either in spite or because of recent decisions, then someone close to you—a colleague, a classmate, your boss, your mother—blurts out, with all the best intentions, and probably too loudly, "You look tired!"
Are you familiar with your own skin? Okay, how about comfortable in it?

Several years ago, I was working as a customer service representative for a furniture retailer. A woman approached my desk and all I could see were her long, gleaming, glorious fingernails. Being a guilty-as-charged nail-biter, I was filled with longing and envy as I glanced down at my own raw, whittled nubs. Before getting down to business, I had to pay homage to these feats of manicured splendor that she was flashing, to which she returned a very gracious "Thank you," and relayed her tale of nail-biting recovery. Turns out she had once been a pretty serious biter, so serious that she contracted a nasty infection and was subsequently hospitalized. All turned out well in the end and she was given the strength of conviction to swear off nail-biting for good.
