  • Blonde Bombshell

    Q&A with Style Creator Heather Marshburn
    Hairstylist @ Ave 42 Style Studio in Richmond, VA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    I would call this look a blonde bombshell! My favorite thing about this look is how much dimension it has. Although it’s a bright blonde, it still looks natural with such a dark base because it has so much dimension in it!

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I would recommend a lot of commitment. She is a natural level 5, so we have done full highlights every four to six weeks. In the end, we will be able to go longer between appointments and only do partial highlights every six to eight weeks. Between appointments, I recommend using professional hair care products at home. My favorite at home product for blondes is Oribe Bright Blonde shampoo and conditioner. It has a purple base which makes blondes brighter!

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    If you want to have blonde hair and you’re naturally dark, I would only recommend this if you have time in your life to commit to coming in for frequent maintenance. It also would not work well with dry curly hair because you want your hair to be healthy to begin this process.
    Being a blonde works best for olive undertones, however pale skin and blonde hair is a beautiful combo. Just make sure you don’t have too much pink in your undertone.

    Q&A with Style Creator Megan Hemingson
    Hairstylist & Salon Manager @ Elle Marie Hair Studio


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This is a heavy balayage used to ease her out of doing foils! I love how icy blonde she is and how consistent the color is from roots to ends.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I recommend a purple shampoo for anyone who is trying to keep their blonde hair ashy and vibrant.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    A balayage looks great for anyone who is trying to stay away from a six week maintenance schedule. The skin types I would recommend for this tone of hair would be more on the pale side. Anyone with a lot of color in their skin might feel that their hair looks very artificial.

  • Perfectly Blended

    Q&A with Style Creator Angelina Turja
    Hairstylist @ Color Me Lounge in Denver, CO


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This look is the result of a foilyage and balayage blend of techniques. I wanted to create a blend of different blondes melting toward her face, leaving a chunky contour of super white blonde to give her look more brightness. My favorite thing about the look is how all of the blonde colors melt together to work with her skin tone.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I recommend a straightening balm to help achieve a good blow dry and prepare for a curling iron for the beachy wave look. Lastly, use a texture spray to finish the messy look.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    My ideal client for this look is anyone with medium to full thickness hair, light colored eyes and a fair to light skin tone. These blonde colors are a part of a color palette of blondes. The ash and beige colors work for cool toned clients. This look is perfect for someone that is fun and outgoing!

  • Sunkissed Blonde

    Q&A with Style Creator Brittni Rafter
    Senior Hairstylist @ Kharma Design Studio in Victoria BC, Canada


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    I would describe this blonde look as natural and sunkissed. My favorite thing about this look is the soft blend along with the vanilla ice tones.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    To create this look, I use a 1 1/4-inch Rusk curling iron. By alternating the curls, it creates a “beachy” look without the curls winding together. After the curls set, I run my fingers through the curls and finish with Amika Texture Spray.

    To maintain your blonde hair, purple shampoo is a must! Milkshake brand is by far my favorite purple shampoo due to its potency (and it smells amazing!). Lather the shampoo on your ends first, then work it up into your scalp. Leave on for three to five minutes. I always recommend clients use it once a week.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    I recommend balayage to anyone who likes a more natural and low maintenance look. When clients get highlights, the re-growth is a more solid line whereas a balayage has a softer blend that doesn’t go right to the root, enabling a more natural grow out. Any hair type can wear balayage. A white/olive skin tone can really be complimented nicely with vanilla/icy tones like in the photo.

  • Two Dimensions

    Q&A with Style Creator Ashley Pheasant
    Owner @ Seven7Five Salon Suite & Boutique in Reno, NV


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This is a two dimension toned balayage. The client had an over processed blonde on top with about an inch of new growth, then half of the head was a darker brown. She wanted to be bleach blonde all over, but I suggested that with her being a nurse and wanting a more low maintenance color that it would be best to break up the bleach blonde with a lever darker and add some dimension with a bayalage. We all know the process and upkeep of being completely bleach blonde all over. This way she can have the high end look with the low maintenance upkeep!

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I used Schwarzkopf bleach with 20 volume on the new growth and none on the over processed bleach. I took a level 7.0 rusk and hand painted some pieces over the over processed blonde with 10 volume, then on the dark brown I used 30 volume bleach. I put her under the dryer for about 15 minutes on low heat and then let her sit for another 30 minutes without heat. I shampooed with Joico K Pak, towel dried and toned with Kenra Tone on Tone Ice and Steel with 20 volume for 20 minutes to cancel out some of the warm.

    I then conditioned and styled with a 1-inch curling iron, adding curls and then straightening the end of the curls out with my Babyliss straightener to give the beachy look. I added a texture spray by A.G. to finish the look. To maintain this blonde I would recommend Joico K Pak for the health of the blonde and a re-touch every eight to ten weeks on the new growth.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    This hair color and style is very low maintenance which is the best part of a bayalage! This client was nurse who is low maintenance and loves to just put her hair up or add some curls in it without having to worry about getting a high light/lowlight every month. Throw some curls in with a beach spray to break it up and you don’t even have to worry about it looking perfect!

  • Beachy Blonde Waves

    Q&A with Style Creator Tasha Peyton
    Hairstylist @ Salon Surreal in Evans, GA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This is a rooted blonde balayage. Hair painting is my absolute favorite! I love how it blends. With this client, I was able to use her natural root and hand paint blonde panels throughout to create a beautiful dimensional blonde.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I recommend a product that is light and airy, but can still add some volume at the root. I used Bumble and bumble HIO Primer paired with Surf Foam Blowdry Spray, then finished the look with a light hold hairspray.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    I feel like this is a great style for anyone with shoulder length hair or longer. Balayage is great for a client who wants a lower maintenance color. The textured cut is great straight or with some fun curls!

  • Soft Blonde Waves

    Instagram / @annadoeshair

    Q&A with Style Creator Anna Chait
    Master Hairstylist @ D Rock Salon in Fairfax, VA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This look is a bright, soft blonde using balayage. My favorite thing about it is that it’s a very soft look because the roots are kept more natural for a sun-kissed appearance.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    Using a 1-1.25-inch curling iron or wand, curl one inch-wide sections away from the face and in different directions throughout. After curling, use a pea-sized amount of shine finishing cream on the hair and take it through the ends of the curls. Finish by texturizing and separating the waves with a dry texture finishing spray to add movement and a modern texture. My favorite is from Oribe.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    This look is perfect for anyone looking for a lower maintenance color, as well as anyone who wants to add more dimension and amp up their hair!

  • Icy Blonde Hair

    Q&A with Style Creator Paul Madahan
    Owner @ PaulDavid Salon in Fullerton, CA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This is one of my favorite blonde hair colors due to its cool, icy tone.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    After achieving a level 10 pale yellow, I used Redken Shade’s Eq gloss to neutralize the remaining unwanted pigments. I always recommend my blonde clients use a purple toning shampoo to maintain the look. My go-to is Pravana’s!

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    I recommend this look for anyone with fair and warm undertones.

  • Gorgeous Blonde Curls

    Instagram / @heysisterbulimba

    Q&A with Style Creator Andy Smith
    Owner/Stylist @ Hey Sister in Brisbane, Australia


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This is a soft caramel to ash blonde highlighted ombré. It was created using a micro foiling technique through the root to mid-length area, then freehand lightened from the mid-lengths to ends. What I like about it most is how the softness of the color unifies with the soft flowing waves of the style to create a sassy, modern, playful look.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    As this is a natural flowing look, I tend to use as few products as possible. After returning from the basin, I apply Schwarzkopf OSiS+ Session Label Volumizing root spray, followed by Schwarzkopf BlondeMe shine enhancing spray conditioner for blonde hair which adds a nice and light conditioned feel without weight, while boosting luminosity using silver shimmer pigments.

    After blow drying and styling, I apply a light hairspray to allow the hair some movement. I use Schwarzkopf OSiS+ Session Label flexible hold hairspray because it has an ultra-fine mist which allows the hair to maintain bounce and volume without adding weight.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    This is perfect for the blonde client who is looking for a new look, yet wants to remain light. A subtle addition of some depth around the root/facial area can really define the eyes and make them pop! It is also fantastic for the darker haired client who has always wanted to be blonde, yet doesn’t want to be frequenting the salon to deal with regrowth issues. This technique is the ideal way to get the best of both worlds.

    This look is perfect for medium to thick haired clients. This particular shade of blonde (ash) is well suited to a warm skin tone (yellow/golden/peach undertone), although this look can still work for cooler skin tones with an adjustment of tone on the blonde. When picking tones of blonde, a good general rule to follow is to choose the opposite of your skin’s undertone.

  • Bright Blonde

    Q&A with Style Creator Corrine Anderson
    Hairstylist @ Blue Hair Studio in Huntingdon Valley, PA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    The look is a rooted yet soft bright blonde. I love the pale and buttery tones paired with a super natural placement.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I recommend Blondor Freelights by Wella for some hair painting to create and maintain this color. I followed up with 7/89 in Wella’s Color Touch for a shadowy base, and 10/ + 9/60 (2:1) in Illumina on the ends.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    I think this look is great for any blonde that wants to be very bright with a more natural and lower maintenance feel. It great for all those naturally “dirty blonde” clients who no longer want to be a slave to foils.

  • Buttery Blonde

    Q&A with Style Creator Jess Martanis
    Hairstylist @ Blades Hair and Nail Studio in Milford, CT


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This is a beautiful buttery blonde. I love that it has multiple tones of blonde.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I use J Beverly Hills high lift blonde and J Beverly Hills max lightener. To blow her out, I used the J Beverly Hills platinum line.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    This client is a stay at home mom and just started getting into root color to have an alternative to her two hour appointment time when she gets her foil. She was also starting to get more grays and we weren’t able pick them all up in a foil. This blonde works well with her for her fair skin tone and gives her fine hair more depth.

  • Blonde Balayage

    Q&A with Style Creator Kim Reeder
    Designer Stylist @ Dare La Vita in Auburn/Opelika, AL


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    I would describe this look as a natural looking blonde balayage with a little dimension. My favorite thing about this look would be that it’s such a low maintenance hairstyle, yet it always looks new and fresh. Also, I’m super into the beach waves right now and can’t get enough! It’s such an easy look to achieve and can last you all day.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I always go to Oribe products! I would recommend starting out with Créme for styling because it will give this look a great blowout and have memory to hold the curls. After I curl it with a wand, I use Aprés Beach as my finishing spray to add a little extra hold and lots of shine!

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    I would recommend this look for someone who likes low maintenance opposed to coming in every six to eight weeks for a highlight root touch up. I also recommend it for someone who wants that natural but sun kissed look! Those with more of a tan complexion tend to pull off a warm balayage best, and those with a fair complexion tend to make a cool blonde balayage look great.

  • Double Stacked Blonde

    Q&A with Style Creator Anastassia Vales
    Hair and Makeup Artist @ Salon Zero in Sierra Madre, CA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This color is a double stacked blonde which is a very heavy, partial head highlight with two tones of blonde. One of my favorite things about this look is that it adapts to multiple styles and the color gives a bright blonde look without needing to apply a base color. Both the cut and color have lots of dimensional play so the client can wear it to their comfort and still maintain a “just out of the salon” look.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I love Unite’s Boosta Shampoo and Conditioner or Enjoy’s sulfate-free Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner. Both of these formulas provide enough moisture for the hair to control dryness without weighing the hair down.

    For styling, I like my clients to use a good hair treatment, a heat styling oil and a texturizing spray. I love Enjoy’s Hair and Skin Treatment Oil and Unite’s Texturiza. The color can be grown out over a 12-week period. I recommend a six to eight week mini weave if the client has a brunette base so that she can maintain a bright blonde hairline.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    This look is ideal for a mom on the go or clients who have a busy day-to-day lifestyle, but enough time to wash and dry it every two to three days. The style can go from a smooth blowout to tousled or curled and the color will last a minimum of two months before needing a retouch.

  • Heavy Foils

    Instagram / @hairbyjpark

    Q&A with Style Creator Jamie Park
    Owner & Hairstylist @ J Park’s Studio of Hair in Elkhart, IL


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This look is for the girls who can’t let go of that bright blonde achieved by heavy foils, but who also want an easy maintenance color. This is exactly why I love this look! This technique of babylights and babylows provide the bright pops of blonde with a little dimension, while the smudge of the root line allows for a flawless and seamless grow out!

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    Products used to create this look:

    Formula 1: Babylights Wella Blondor Powder Lightener with 30vol and Olaplex
    Formula 2: Babylows Wella ColorTouch 7/71 (matching her natural base)
    Formula 3: Root Base(Smudge) Wella ColorTouch = 7/71 5/71
    Formula 4: Glaze Redken ShadesEQ = 09v/07p + 3 drops 09t

    Technique:

    I face-framed with Formula 1 to create the money piece in front at bang area and front hairline using very small woven babylights. After front framing has been done, I used a faded-foil technique from ear to part alternating Formula 1 and 2 in a 2:1 ratio (Blonde:Dark) and repeated on the other side and through the crown area.

    Do not pull the lowlight all the way through in the foil. Only pull it halfway to keep the ends blonde to help create the fine woven balayage with dimension. Keep in mind to take small weaves in the foils. Process for 45 minutes. Once rinsed, apply Formula 3 1/2”-1” on roots ( tip: do not use excessive product) and let process for 15 minutes. Rinse and glaze. Keep an eye on the glaze and process to the desired tone of blonde.

    By doing a small smudge of the roots, this will soften the foil lines and allow the hair to grow out seamlessly. This provides longevity between color appointments and requires very little maintenance. In 8-10 weeks, a fresh smudge and tone would be all that is needed to freshen this look and provide another 6-8 weeks before needing to completely start fresh.

    What type of client would you recommend this for?

    This technique can be recommended for all hair densities and types (curly hair may require heavier weaves so that dimension is visible). It is easy to maintain and leaves natural movement within the color. This particular formula is cool toned and looks fabulous on the blue eyed girls. This formula looks great on multiple skin tones.

  • Rooty Blonde Balayage

    Q&A with Style Creator Linet Keshishian
    Master Hairstylist & Colorist @ Hair by Linet in Santa Monica and Studio City, CA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This is a rooty blonde balayage. Dimension and texture was created via hand painting the balayage.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    To create and maintain this look, I use Unite 7 Seconds Spray as a heat protectant and detangler. I also use a 1-inch barrel curling iron to create the waves and Oribe texture spray to maintain the hold.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    This is a great look for a client looking for that sunkissed look without being in the sun all summer. Since it is a grown out rooty look, it’s easy to maintain for more than four to six weeks. It is a great look for full, thick hair as color is used to break up the thickness with depth and dimension.

  • Blonde Bangs

    Instagram / @nicmayhair

    Q&A with Style Creator Nicole Crews
    Senior Hairstylist @ Boho House Salon in Vero Beach, FL


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This blonde look is modern and a little edgy. Sometimes it’s hard to put a new spin on long hair, so we added bangs and some fun layers to add movement! My favorite thing about this look is that it’s so versatile, you really can style and wear it so many ways.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    Products are very important to maintain your hair after you leave the salon. To maintain your blonde at home, I recommend using Davines Alchemic Silver shampoo to help cancel out any brassy tones you may get from washing. To style, I love R+Co High Dive. It’s the perfect all around styling product because it adds moisture and shine, and you can also air dry or heat style with it!

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    I think all hair types can pull off this look and style, but I would be careful with how much hair to incorporate into bangs if you have curly and/or thick hair. When going blonde, you should always work with your stylist on the right tone of blonde that best compliments your skin. To find which color works best on your skin tone, I always recommend looking up pictures of celebrities that have the same eye color and skin tone as you.

    This look is low upkeep for straight haired ladies, but would require some more commitment from women with thicker or curly hair because the bangs would require daily styling.

  • Babylights

    Q&A with Style Creator Joanne Hong
    Hairstylist & Colorist @ Salon H in Torrance, CA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This is a rooty blonde with babylights and foilayage through the entire head. My favorite thing about this look is how low maintenance it is for clients. When it grows out, the hair will blend in nicely with their natural base and could last up to months if maintained properly.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I recommend Moroccan oil on the ends to keep hair hydrated and a color-safe shampoo and conditioner to keep the color last.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    Any client can wear this look as long as there is a nice transition from the natural color to blonde.

  • Butterscotch

    Q&A with Style Creator Rebecca Ramey
    Senior Stylist @ Versed Salon in Plainfield, IL


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This is a balayaged blonde with a touch of a butterscotch tone to it. My favorite part is that by choosing the balayage technique, she gets the look of a highlight, but a softer grow out and more longevity than traditional foil. Just because it is painted doesn’t mean that it needs to be ombré. I think some people get the two confused. Balayage is a technique while ombré is a look.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I used all Kevin Murphy products to style this client. Their products were created by a session stylist so they always get the job done. Kevin Murphy is the king of the beach wave. For this particular look, I blow dried in KM Hair Resort and KM Shimmer Shine. Then, I curled her hair away from her face with a 1-inch iron, switching directions on each piece in the back. I combed out the curls with a KM Texture Comb and finished her style with KM DoOver which is a a dry shampoo/texture spray. There are amazing products!

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    I would recommend this color for someone who loves to be blonde but needs more time in between her salon visits. The curl brings tons of dimension, but when worn straight, the color is quite light and a beautiful blonde. I would recommend this style and products for someone that needs texture in their hair for a curl to hold. It is perfect for someone that wants to wear their style for multiple days between shampoos with very little work to maintain.

  • Blended At The Root

    Q&A with Style Creator Holly Andrew
    Owner & Head Stylist @ Lush Hair Salon Saddleworth in Manchester, UK


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This blonde balayage is classy and natural, but still sexy looking. Blondes have this ongoing battle of keeping away ginger/yellow tones, so with this color I blended the “at the root” area into the blonde, toning into an ash creamy color and using the balayage technique running through her hair. I love how the hair color looks so natural, but is defined in many tones.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I love Olaplex. I couldn’t live without it! Step 1 and 2 we use in the salon to create all our colors, while Step 3 I recommend for clients to take and use at home. Olaplex is a treatment which rebuilds the strength and structure of the hair. It’s like a “reset button” for your hair! I also always use a heat protection spray before styling my clients’ hair to prevent damage.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    Going back to the hairdresser every six to eight weeks can be so much hassle as well as expensive! Any client who’s on the go and needs low maintenance upkeep needs to have balayage!

    Just like make-up foundation, your hair color shade should be matched to your skin tone perfectly. I like to use the warmer colors on clients that have a natural warm base color so that when the color grows out, it blends out seamlessly and will last up to six months!

    I use a vanilla colored toner on the clients who like to have the ashy creamy blonde, blending out the root color perfectly so that when the roots start growing through, there’s no definite line.

  • Fluid Tones

    Q&A with Style Creator Danielle Provot
    Hair Artist & Color Specialist @ The House Salon in Mission Viejo, CA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This blonde look has great color flow and versatility of the layer and length. It also shows good movement and fluid tonal blend.

    My favorite thing about this look is the contrast between the shadowed root to the lighter ends, as well as the soft flowing texture.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    To maintain this look, I recommended Kerastase Reflection Riche Shampoo and Conditioner. Once a week, use Fanola no yellow to get rid of any brassy tones. Before blow drying, use Kerastase Karatine Thermique to smooth and protect the hair. After curling, I mix L’Oréal Nutrifier and Shu Uemura shape paste and apply to the mid shaft and ends.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    This look is great for fine, medium textured hair because of the simplicity of the styling. I prefer olive tones for skin type, but this color is so versatile that it could work for any skin tone.

  • Ice White

    Q&A with Style Creator Destinee Zewiey
    Hairstylist @ Tease Hair Boutique in Norwell, MA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This is the ice white/platinum color that everyone is dying for right now! My favorite thing about it is the really light pieces that seem to be almost glowing. A lot of people wait until summer to go lighter, but with this look being so icy, it’s perfect for winter as well.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I definitely recommend a purple shampoo to help the tone from turning yellow. I also recommend a heat protectant and oil because lifting the hair to that level can be extremely damaging. The heat protectant and oil create a barrier on the hair to help prevent breakage from high temperatures.

    To create this style at home, all you need is a 1-inch barrel curling iron. After curling, take a dab of Shu Uemura oil, rub your hands together and run fingers through the ends of your hair. Afterwards, glide your fingers through all of your hair to make the bigger curls and waves.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    I’d recommend this look to someone who doesn’t mind the up keep. I’d suggest an Olaplex treatment and coming in every six weeks for a gloss/toner. I think this color would look best on someone with a fair skin tone and light eyes.

  • Effortlessly Blonde

    Instagram / @aniawaznycreative

    Q&A with Style Creator Kristi Murdoch
    Hairstylist in Mississauga, Ontario


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This look is for the woman who wants to be effortlessly blonde. It is a great transition into a summer look. I love how low maintenance balayage can be when done right. Aside from a root touch up and toner, this color requires very little in the maintenance department. The cut is my absolute favorite and is requested by clients on the regular. Its shattered layers allow the hair to be easily styled into a beach wave or a smooth and straight style.

    What products do you recommend to create and maintain this look?

    I always use BlondMe lightener by Schwarzkopf. It has a nice creamy consistency for painting balayage and can achieve up to 9 levels of lift. It’s a miraculous product. For melting and toning the hair, I like to use Wella Professional’s demi color line, Color Touch. The colors blend beautifully from dark to light.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    This look is for a stylish lady who wants to make an impression with her hair and is ready to make a switch to the light side. I for one believe that almost anyone can be a blonde, it’s just a matter of having your stylist pick the perfect shade for you. And there are so many!

    The haircut looks like work but I feel like it allows so much space for creativity. This haircut is long enough for that it can be pulled back into a chic low pony. With a few sexy pieces pulled out in the front, it makes for a sexy style for a night out.
