3 Preparation When you think about it, you will realize that most of your greatest accomplishments have been a result of hard work. Successful people know the 4 P Rule: “Poor Planning leads to Pretty Poor results.” This stage is often overlooked. Many people go through the pre-contemplation to the contemplation stage, then immediately take some action.
Identifying and understanding these stages in your life will help you be successful in moving through the changes you want and improve your focus to set and achieve goals in your new wellness adventure.

You will know when you have reached the termination stage when you no longer feel tempted to resume your old, unhealthy behaviours. Situations that would have been a problem in the past no longer threaten you.

You acknowledge that you want to start exercising or change your eating habits because you are not happy with your present lifestyle. In this stage you have made a vague commitment to change sometime in the future. You are aware of the problem but do not focus on the solution. Most of us live in the contemplation stage from day to day, week to week, month to month.
With hair colour, small changes can make a big impact. Be sure to remember the importance of brightening your look, complementing your skin tone, and the maintenance that your new colour will require. Changing your colour does not have to be a big commitment. Just make sure you have a stylist you trust and come ready with plenty of inspiration.
• Be honest. Your stylist will inquire about your colour history. Be honest with them. Even a colour you had two years ago may be relevant in deciding what formula they choose to use. Knowing the history of your hair will allow your stylist to customize the colour to counter act any underlying pigments or uneven porosity.
This stage may last for months or years. The maintenance stage requires intense patience and perseverance. Conscious effort must be made to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
• Believe in your stylist. They are the professionals and will customize a formula that works with your skin tone and the condition of your hair. If your hair is dry and damaged, a bright vibrant red is not going to be the most flattering. The canvas your stylist is starting with will determine the colour that is achievable for you.
For the most flattering results, stick within two shades lighter or darker than your natural colour or the colour you were as a toddler. Staying within this range will keep your colour looking natural. The younger generations do not have to play it so safe. Younger skin is a lot more forgiving so you can be a little more daring and drastic and go for a drastic shade or contrasting low lights. However, keep in mind that drastic colour changes should always be done by a professional, otherwise it can look sloppy. After age 30 paying attention to skin tone becomes a lot more important. As a rule, if your skin tone is warm, stick with warmer shades while cooler skin should stick with cooler shades of colour. A colour should always brighten your face. Skin tones will be emphasized by certain colours or made to look dull by others. Baby boomer generations should focus on adding back a little more warmth. This is the
• Bring pictures with you. Pictures will ease communication and help you to explain what you like and do not like. The more you and your stylist can communicate the better result you are likely to get.
In this stage, you may not acknowledge a problem, and have little or no intention of change. If you find yourself fitting into this stage, some suggestions I have are: • Talk to friends or family members who have made lifestyle changes • Read a book on people who have changed their exercise or eating habits • Subscribe to a health and fitness magazine • Have a medical exam
As we age..
Whatever colour change you choose to make, keep in mind a few simple things.
The action stage requires the most time and energy, both physical and mental. This phase can be filled with mixed emotions. For example, you will be excited as you experience feelings of success after completing a workout but you may feel frustrated by the distractions that make it hard to stay focused on your plan.
The hottest colours in 2010 will embrace all shades, whether blonde, red, or brunette. Blondes will be very blonde with blue or violet undertones—think platinum. Any shade of blonde works. Just make sure it is never brassy or yellow looking. Red heads will be sophisticated but playful, with deep red tones, magenta, and purples accented with coppers and golds. Brunettes will have an all-over cooler base with fewer red undertones. As for highlights they will be either tone on tone and blended, or strategically placed for high impact (NEVER chunky). Just make sure the result looks soft, shiny, and multi-dimensional.
What’s in style...
time when hair starts to become dull and flat in appearance. Brighter high lights around the face can really freshen up and soften your look. Try and stay away from ashy tones and contrasting colors. Dark tones can be very harsh and severe looking. Choosing soft warm colors will be the most flattering.
aking changes to your hair colour is a great way to update your look. The commitment is not as drastic as getting a complete style change or losing all your length. A colour that compliments your own look and skin tone will always be in style. Using current trends to inspire subtle changes in your look is what it is all about. But sometimes we are ready for that all-out drastic change. If you are not sure what you want, wait, and do a little more searching for inspiration. Making impulsive decisions while you are in your stylist’s chair is almost always a bad idea. Just be sure not to change for the sake of change.
These actions may not produce the results hoped for, then failure feedback discourages them. Those who have been successful at permanently changing their eating and exercise habits have taken the time to plan exactly how they were going to accomplish their goals.
2010 hair colour will be subdued and blended for a soft finished look and will continue to be more on the natural end of the spectrum.
t is important to understand that change is a process. There are six trans-theoretical stages to change—any change in life. I’m talking about changes you want to make in your life, self-generated change. Whether one is considering a job change or committing to a wellness program, to ensure success it is important to recognize your present state in order to move forward. Here are the six transtheoretical stages for change to help assist you with success for your new adventure.
