Beachy waves and lightened tips for Michelle

Michelle already had beautiful hair, but like many women, she was getting tired of the same hair for so many years.  Without doing something drastic, we were able to appease her need for change, but still keep most of her natural hair color throughout.  Once again the final result is that of a kids hair color who has been in the summer sun.

beautiful blonde hair

I don’t have any before pictures on this one, but Laura was living in the south when she came to me.  Her hair was bleach white and heavily damaged.  Now it’s got depth and strength, and she still gets to keep the blonde without being over processed.

kat goes beachy

It’s in right now, but it’s never been out.  The beachy look is what every little kid has after the summer has bleached out their hair.  Especially if you live near the coast, this hair color is always appropriate.

kat beforesomeone had already gone for the beachy look with kat, but I felt like the placement was a little off.  with a few corrections, we got her hair to flow a little nicer and make more sense.

Erynne gets color for first time

If you’re nervous about getting color for the first time… Don’t be… It doesn’t have to be a drastic change.  This is a very subtle and beautiful version of what is being called the ombré.  I hate to put this hair-color in the same category because it’s so much classier. Until a new phrase is coined for this, it will have to do.  With soft highlights framing the face and the ends, this color gives the appearance of being out in the sun for a summer.  You can see how much nicer her skin looks in the before and afters.  The lightness of the hair softens the red tones in her skin by reducing the contrast.
