Elizabeth Jakaitis | May 11, 2015 | 1:01 PM

Jason Backe, L’Oréal Professionnel artist and co-owner of Ted Gibson salons, assures that for summer, cool tones are where it’s at for blondes.

“If you are a blonde right now, it’s super hot to be super cool!” Backe says. “It’s all about icy tones and a velvet finish. I am obsessed with the new Majirel High Lift—the new violet colorant delivers a coolness I have never seen from a high-lift color before.”
