Lawrence has warm hints of caramel and strawberry with kisses of golden blonde. It's ‘50 shades of gold.’ Using Schwarzkopf's BLONDME color series will help a colorist to achieve this look."

Celebrity stylist Oribe looked to the past when designing Upton’s hair look, taking inspiration from iconic screen siren Jayne Mansfield. To get the look, Oribe blow dried the hair with a side part, curled the hair with a 2-inch curling iron, and pinned the curls flat to the head. Once the curls cooled, he took the set down and brushed out the hair. To finish the look, he used Oribe Superfine hairspray for hold. “Make sure the hair is light and not heavy with products,” Oribe says. “It’s all about luster.”

Upton's blonde, is also reflective of the ideal blonde for fall 2013, says Master Colorist Beth Minardi. “The blonde is light, yet glowing with health. It’s a soft, buttery beige/yellow tone finished with a very modern yet polished style. No gray, silver or orange tone in this luscious pastel color. It’s very ‘Marilyn’ but for a new century!”








Actress Michelle Williams recently participated in Louis Vuitton’s latest advertising campaign where she sports her new blonde, wine-colored lips and dark eyebrows. “I am inspired by the cool tone of Michele Williams’ new hair color, as seen in the recent Louis Vuitton campaign,” says Celebrity stylist Eva Scrivo. “The typical warm palette with grown out highlights, that has been so prevalent in seasons past, has evolved into a more sophisticated blonde for fall. The root with lighter blonde ends looks more natural, yet still impactful and exciting.”

Instead of a golden or honey blonde, try this warm neutral level 8 with 9/10 cream accents.”
