A picture is worth a thousand dollars spent on emergency color corrections, which is why it’s always good practice to bring an inspiration photo to a hair appointment. Beachy waves and caramel highlights may sound like a straightforward request, but why use the same paparazzi shot of Chrissy Teigen that everyone’s been using for reference for the past three years when there are so many sources of equally gorgeous sun-kissed hair color inspiration out there?
