Summer and Sun-kissed Hair...Yes Please!

by Lensi White

Summer approaching means it's that time of year for color change.  Clients are ready for either a color change or a fresh new cut. Trending now, for hair color, is that lived-in sun-kissed color that's definitely lighter (especially with accents around the face).  Think of it this way: you're laying out on the beach with the sun shining down on your hair. Anywhere the sun would reflect is where the hair should be lightened. Baby lights mixed with hand painting techniques around the face and ends is the perfect way to achieve these sun-kissed look.  Vogue Magazine had a perfect example of this color on Gigi Hadid for clients with naturally lighter than a level six hair.  

For those clients with level six or darker @sincerelyjules would be a fabulous to follow on Instagram as well!  Her dark hair is always on point, not to mention her style is impeccable! This picture captures that perfect amount of blonde mixed with caramel to make the perfect lived in color:

For more color/cut inspiration check out @igksalons on Instagram.  They post the most fabulous colors!  They are the people creating these trends for everyone.  Check this photo out!  It's the ultimate beach color for blondes for this summer!  They left plenty of her natural at the roots, but amped up around the face and all the ends! 

Now for those of you wanting to make a color change, but not wanting the commitment- these new looks are perfect for you! They grow out flawlessly, with little to no upkeep. Use the same techniques by lightening around the face, just start with a little less and work your way to more as you get more daring.

It's summer!! Go ahead and brighten up your look!!
