Strawberry Blonde




Jessica’s’ effortlessly beautiful strawberry blonde babylights are here! First, let me tell you what a treat it was to do her hair! Not only is she the best massage therapist I have ever had the pleasure of meeting but she also had virgin hair! OMG VIRGIN HAIR!!!! Ladies- that is a stylist dream client. I especially loved her look because she really just wanted to stick 1 toe in the color/highlights department. I will never push anyone in the pool, I will always go slightly on the softer side so you come back begging for more! I knew this was my opportunity to dazzle her and make her love coloring her hair. During our consultation she told me she definitely wanted to see a change but not something she had to maintain every month or 2. Consultations are such a huge part of my job and I make sure every single person, no matter how long I know them, we always talk about color before any service is performed. So, with knowing what Jessica wanted I decided to do some bigger internal pieces alternating a soft golden blonde and a medium copper blonde creating texture and a blend of both colors which creates a soft strawberry tone. If you are not familiar with how color works, especially blondes, you might not know what blonde hair is transparent. This means that if you have blonde and put copper near by, it will look strawberry. Another example is if you have blonde hair and you put black behind or beside it, it will look grey. So I swapped between the gold and copper pretty heavy on the internal sections and then ombre’d the ends in the front only with the blonde so her tips in the front were nice and bright! On the top section of the hair, where the maintenance would be found, we did soft babylights (aka fine weave highlights) so her grow out would be very minimal. With this look she will be able to easily go 2-6 months between services. I really love how her came out and I asked her if what we did reminded her of her childhood hair and she said it did. She is such a beautiful woman inside and out, and now her hair matches!

Ps., best massage therapist ever!!!!!!!
