Salon Stories: Blonde Ambition

Salon Stories: Blonde Ambition

Feeling your best often starts with looking your best!  The photos above are from “JS”, a first-time hair extensions client. Her hair color was 10 shades too light for her skin tone.  As a seasoned hairstylist, I’ve regularly corrected unflattering color for new clients to get them on the right track!

The Color Theory

Typically, with blondes who naturally lean towards the darker side of the blonde color spectrum, you can create a naturally flattering color by weaving 22” extensions in dark and light blonde shades to create dimension. If we simply accentuate our natural self slightly we stay in what I like to refer to as the “safe zone” with color.  With this client, I made sure that we went a little more golden with some of the hair extension, alternating between lighter and darker blonde shades to bridge the gap between her natural color and the sun-kissed look we were trying to achieve for the summer.
