Insta-Makeover: Brighten Up Your Blonde for Summer

Sure, you're blonde. But are you summer blonde? It's the time of year to let the sun shine through your tresses, and sitting around with your winter coloring not only makes your skin look washed out, but gives people the awful impression that you haven't been outside since last September. For the hard-working Savannah Galbraith, it's challenging to get enough time out of the office to collect organic summer brights. To keep things nice and natural-looking (no bottle-blonde Vegas showgirl locks here!), we gave Savannah one of our favorite products, some DIY assistance, and a lot of moral support.
Click on to watch Savannah lighten her strands and collect tips on how to bring out the brights in your own 'do and care for your freshly colored hair all summer long.
