  1. Jen,
    I love the new FAQ’s video! Informational, fun, your son is adorable! You make a great team…
    I have a question…What does “medium contrast patterns” mean?
    Thank you

  2. I would love to see a question/answer video about how gray or graying hair affects our over-all colors. I read your “over 40” article, and I didn’t see this there. You mentioned that gray hair tends to be softer, but does that mean that our overall color type will change if we go from brown to gray? I’m currently a bright, cool, medium, but my hair color is getting grayer and not whiter.

    1. Thanks for the request. I do address grey hair throughout my content, but I can make a video specifically addressing this.

      Jen
