WHAT YOU'RE TEMPTED TO DO:
Fry it, dye it, even Britney-fy it.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
"Put down the dye bottle," insists Laurie Daniel, of Manhattan's hipster haven OC61 Salon. "You'll most likely regret drastic changes made in the first month or so after a split. Besides, damage control for a bad dye job can be brutal on hair and really expensive." As for pre-breakup goldilocked Michelle Williams, it was painfully obvious that her murky tresses were a cry of anguish — and not necessarily a good career move. "Ninety-five percent of my clients who go darker want to go back to being blonde almost instantly," says Daniel. "They want to change how they're feeling, so they change their hair." Truth is, this can work — if the change is subtle. Daniel attributes Reese Witherspoon's post-Ryan Phillipe It-girl status to having her bangs cut and just slightly brightening her blonde. "Cutting bangs is still a bold move, but it's not as drastic as lopping off six inches." As far as color is concerned, consider a few highlights around the hairline and crown to give an instant mood lift. "And don't drop into a salon you've never heard of," advises Daniel. "Go to someone you admire and trust — who can also offer a sympathetic ear."
