10. Give It a Whirl
Leave it to @alan_beak to showcase the beauty of natural hair color on a fresh cut and blow dry. He says he likes to respect the origin point of hair and embrace it instead of fighting it. Based on this finished result, it seems like excellent advice!

9. Palette Power
Know your complementary colors! @kanejenna works baby-blue eyes to her advantage with bronze and orangey tones. Combined with her silver-beige hair and deep mahogany lips, this makeup artist knows her color wheel.

8. Cooling Off
simply captioned his before-and-after “S L A Y E D” with a fire emoticon, and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. A cool-blonde transformation completely changed and refreshed his client’s short cut.

5. Blonde Ambition
Teamwork made this dream a reality for a client who wanted a fresh style for her wedding. @jeremyhartfield first cropped the hair into a chic bob, then @saramay_level10 put her color prowess to work. The result is a transformation worth more than 21,000 likes.

4. Smokeshow
Is it the silvery-beige rooted color? The perfectly tousled bob and winged liner? @yokii.san hits all the marks with an eye-catching color and style using Schwarzkopf Professional, Brazilian Bond Builder, Hot Tools Professional and L’Oréal Professionnel.

3. Little Girl, Big Hair
We’re in absolute awe of the volume and style @sagidahary created on tiny model @anastaya_averbukh_officialWith more than 27,000 likes, you seem to share our hair awe and envy!

2. Linear Layering
Back in January 2017, @kaori_nails combined still-trending pastels with a nod to the outgoing Pantone colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. With the added geometric design, this mani wows.
