When you’re feeling red, go red. When you’re feeling blonde, go for it. Just don’t do both within the same year. Taking time between color transitions will leave your hair in better condition between each color process, while giving you time to repair and nourish it in between appointments.
As far as what to change to, many people know what color pallets looks best on them. Soft pinks? Vibrant oranges? Forest Green? After looking at your eye color, use the color wheel to find complimentary colors to your style and personality. And then stick with it.
If you like to change, you MUST take really great care of your lovely locks. Start. With a really reparitive and nourishing conditioning mask. This one is my favorite from Kerastase.
When deciding to switch it up, make sure you ask your stylist about damage, at home care, and a realistic time line to go from Red to Blonde. Anything is possible, but enjoying the process of can be a beautiful journey!

Which color would you wear? What color will take you to where you need to be. Let your hair define your inner spirit, and never be afraid to express yourself. With a little bit of money, and the right stylist, you can make magic happen!
Summer is coming up, which means you might be thinking about going lighter! It’s such an exciting and special moment. Keep in mind that bleaching your hair might change the way your virgin, healthy locks feel. So be sure to talk to your stylist about at home care products to keep your locks feeling smooth and looking shiny. I always love and recommend Moroccan Oil Treatment. This power serum is a great foundation for blowdrys and under any hot tools for added heat protection!
Washing your hair less will also help fighting off dryness during the summer months. Think moisture. Always rock your blonde to the max and don’t be afraid to play with toners. You should know what a toner is by now!! If not, grill your stylist for information! You only want the best. I have so many blondes asking for this beautiful ash / grey / beige color right now. It’s so beautiful and looks great with a root.
- Here’s one of my favorites. Enjoy the process!

If you speak hairdresser, here’s my secret formula:
Natural level 7.
Lightener 20 volume.
Shades EQ: 9T=9V & processing solution.
(Sometimes we add a splash of 9B or 9RB)
On root for 5 min, pull through for last 2. Let it turn grey! It’s scary at first, but that full deposit makes it last! 😉
