Babylights: Current Hollywood Hair Color Trend

Bye bye Ombré, hello Babylights!
Yes! Its time for change in haircolor trends and I always love natural looking color.  Babylight highlights mimic the look of a child's hair after being the sun and are great for both blondes and brunettes. Read on....http://www.byrdie.com/hair-highlight-ideas/

Anna, Color and Cut

Anna has been my client over a year now.  Her natural color is dark blonde.  She had never colored her hair before so I had a perfect canvas to work with. (Not to mention she is gorgeous!)  I recently gave Anna several shades of light blonde highlights ranging from icy, pale blonde to light, golden blonde.  I have changed the placement of her highlights over time concentrating the lightest colors around her face for a natural beachy look.  I also cut face framing pieces to give shape to her long, fine hair.

Ally L, Ombre Color

My favorite client! My lovely daughter. I did Ally's ombré color over a year ago. One of the great things about ombré color is that it is low maintenance. I used Schwarzkopf colors to highlight a Ally's natural color in her crown and to add light golden blonde throughout her ends.

Cover Model Natalia Kern- Color and Hair Cut


I did both a color and cut for Natalia just before her shoot for the March cover of Ultra Fit magazine. I gave Natalia a subtle change to her rich, brunette color by adding warm, deep golden tones. I also do a clear gloss over her hair to add shine so her color looks fabulous both under the studio lights and at home with her little ones. (Believe it or not she's two months pregnant here!).

Spring Color- Golden, Chesnut Brown with Sunkissed Ends

Nat C.
Nat has been my client for a couple of years. She has had a variety of colors with me ranging from highlights, to ombre color, to going back to her natural color- a deep, rich (almost black) espresso. This time she was opting for a lighter look for spring. It was quite a lenghty process (6 hrs) but I removed her previously dark hair color with two applications of a color lifter. Next, I used Schwarzkopf color restore her hair to a warm, golden chesnut brown with slightly lighter ends for a sunkissed look.
