Rooty Blonde Makeover
Here's how hair color can help keep things interesting.
"This gorgeous natural brunette decided that when her boyfriend got home from being away she would surprise him by being a blonde bombshell," says colorist at Ramirez Tran in Beverly Hills, @slim_color. "I love a good spicy twist in a relationship." And we love this final bright, clear tone she achieved for her client. Hair cut by @alissasmithhair
STEP ONE: She highlighted her once and got her pretty light with 20 volume and Olaplex then painted her ends with 40 volume and a bit less Olaplex.
TIP: "I recommended that we keep some of her natural instead of giving her a lighter base. More highlights can make you feel more blonde without altering the base."
STEP TWO: "After the first go, we both did not love it but she had to go. So I sent her home with Olaplex to leave in."
STEP THREE: Her client returned to the salon and they picked through and highlighted pieces that were too golden.
"I gave her a shadow root and an all over gloss. Poof, she's a blonde!"
