NEW COLOR TOOLS

With updated consistencies and longer-lasting formulas, newfangled dye products turn your bathroom into the salon

EASY MAINTENANCE

Extend the time between color with handy touch-up tools. Manhattan colorist Rita Hazan's Root Concealer ($24) is a spray-on formula that masquerades both grays and roots, making color last an extra two weeks. "It's easy to use and doesn't come out until you shampoo," says Hazan. Even more straightforward, Avon's Advance Techniques Color Protection Root Touch-Up ($8) is essentially mascara (a comb-in gel tint) for your hair.

INCREASED INTENSITY

Traditionally, dramatic color change has required a trip to the salon, but a couple of new con-tenders may change that. Kelly Van Gogh's Multi-Dimensional Luxury Colour ($39) uses a patented cold-pressed delivery system that pushes color deep into the hair cuticle while simultaneously nourishing strands. And Natural Instincts Vibrant ($9) is a demi-permanent, intense color formula that lasts up to eight weeks, covers grays, and can lighten hair.

SMART APPLICATIONS

The texture of the moment is light-as-air. L'Oréal Paris' Sublime Mousse ($10) has a frothy consistency that can be massaged in like shampoo, while both John Frieda's Precision Foam Colour ($13) and Clairol's Nice 'n Easy Color Blend Foam ($9) feature fluffy formulas that provide even coverage and can be applied with fingertips. Bonus: All are completely drip-resistant.
