Celebrity inspired looks:
Rachel Bilson, Gisele Bundchen (balayage: natural looking highlights that blends to your hair color with a gradation effect)
Drew Barrymore, Ashlee Simpson (ombre: gradation with 2-tone dip dye effect)
4 reasons why you should try these amazing looks:
+super hot hair trends (you have probably seen them in lots of celebrities, bloggers, fashionistas, models, etc…)
+low maintanance (no need to touch up the roots every month)
+works for any type of hair/ hairstyle (long, short, curly, straight, blonds, brunettes, etc…)
I love both the balayage and the ombre hairstyles, but I decided to go for the balayage look. I got my hair done last weekend and I really love the results! It came out really pretty on my black hair! ;)
I found Holly Jones on Yelp. She’s amazing and an expert in balayage (make sure you choose the right professional to do your hair). Her salon is located in the heart of Venice, CA. Click here to check the reviews.
Process: Holly tied my hair into ponytails right before bleaching them (her special technique).
I think the whole process took about 1 hour.
Cost: $90 (plus tip)
My natural hair color: black. Boring.. I haven’t colored my hair for 4 years!!
♥ Balayage. Love it! ♡
Maintain: I bought a shampoo & conditioner for chemically treated hair at Holly’s salon. My hair feels really soft after using the products she recommended:
Shampoo: Melu (davines)/ Conditioner: vegetarian miracle (davines)
I love how my new hair! But I want to get the ends even lighter like Rachel Bilson’s hair. So I’m going back to see Holly next month and I will update this post with some more pictures! Stay tuned~
