The LOOK: Taking Your Summer Blonde Into Fall
Saturday, September 08, 2012
Just because we are heading into the first part of September, there is no reason why we have to leave our summer tones back in August. Here are a couple tips on how to keep your summer blonde going strong.
Work the highlighting you already have
If you are heavy-highlighted and like your blonde without lowlighting, deepen your blonde tones at your next color appointment by getting a single process 2 shades darker than the summer tones. You'll get a fall look and still keep the tones from the sunny summer.
Blondes can add panels of strawberry blonde, not to darken but to add contrast with another light tone. Just keep other tones away from hairline and skin tone; they read better when placed under the top shade and behind the hairline.
Return the natural
Bring back your natural tone from root to midshaft without foiling. Ask your stylist about boliaging color or painting onto hair... he or she should know this terminology. If they don't, it may be time to research a new stylist!
Most of all, if you know what you want don't let an inexperienced stylist talk you out of a look. Until next time, happy coloring!
