So, what should you ask your colorist for if you want Blake's multi-tonal buttery blonde hair color? Ask for a dark golden-blonde base. Then, ask to have some bright pale baby blonde highlights placed around the hairline and top styling area of your head. Your stylist should seal the deal with a clear gloss. Boom — you’ve got Blake.
To get Olivia's hair color, what you need is a very fine weave of highlights just off the roots. When I'm trying to replicate this look, I aim for a subtle progression of color from the roots down, which leads to heavier lightness on the hair's ends. The finishing touch is a rose gold gloss. This blends the multiple tones and gives it that beautiful rosy glow, which works so well with her complexion — and which, if done right, can enhance your own glow.
You might be surprised to hear that of all the celebrity hair color requests I receive, this one is the easiest to replicate. I can tell by looking at Emma's hair that it's first tinted with a single process color: vibrant copper red. My professional take is that highlights of 24, 14, and 18 carat gold are woven throughout to give dimension.
Jessica's hair is a great example of sombré (a more natural looking version of ombré) I’ve been talking about this season. When I go about achieving Jessica’s look for a client, I start by placing a connecting honey-colored highlight on the hair line. I then place a haze of finely woven strands throughout the top of her head, exactly where the sun would lighten hair naturally. These pieces progress into fatter swatches of lightness that are reflected in the ends of the hair.
I have so many clients who come in asking to get Kim K's hair, which is naturally dark brown. To get her noticeably rich color palette, I enhance clients' hair with a semi-permanent color in espresso brown. For the full shine that I know my clients are really looking for, I use emollients and moisturizers on top of the color. This creates a subtle tone on tone that's finely woven through highlights that are strategically placed just off the root and throughout the ends of her hair. This gives subtle dimension that prevents dark hues from looking so dense and solid. Lastly, the color is sealed with a clear gloss.
