Sun-Kissed Blondes

Summer is here so it’s time to lighten up and brighten up your color to match the sunny days ahead.  And this summer light blonde balayage highlights are the trend!

Jessica Gonzalez, colorist at Sally Hershberger Los Angeles, created this effortless look using a balayage, or hand painted, technique for a natural-looking and thoroughly sun-kissed finish. This technique is ideal if you are looking to stay in your current or natural color family but want an updated, more blended look for the season.

PRO TIP: To maintain that brass-free beach babe blonde, use Pravana’s new The Perfect Blonde! The purple toning regimen comes complete with a sulfate-free shampoo, conditioner, masque, and leave-in mist to make sure those locks stay hydrated and bright, free of brass or yellowing. The collection is a perfect for people with blonde, highlighted, ombred, balayaged or gray cstrands who are looking for a way to keep up their color in-between salon appointments.

Check out this video where Pravana demonstrates how to use the system:

FOR PROS: Using the new ChromaSilk Ultra Hi-Lifts to break her base, Gonzalez then created a beautiful balayage with the Pure Light Balayage Lightener and ChromaSilk Express Tones in Ash and Clear.
