Long for hair that screams “I paid a fortune for this” (even though you didn't)? MORE.com asked Sharon Dorram of Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger (her clients include Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Renee Zellweger) to let us in on her favorite inexpensive hair products, tools and tips. So, go ahead and save that hard-earned money for a vacation splurge this summer. We won’t tell anyone your fab color came from a box.
"To take the edge off new roots between highlights, I tell my blonde or light-brown-haired clients to dab a mild lightener, such as Jolen Crème Bleach, around the hairline, leave it on for two minutes, then shampoo it out. ”
“Velcro rollers are the best inexpensive tool out there. You can pick up a cheap set at Ricky’s [a New York City-based beauty supply chain] and they come in all different sizes. They’re great for smoothing out your hair and creating volume."
