Sunset Blonde’s Hair Color

7 Aug

I get my hair dyed at a Beverly Hills salon called Fringe Salon on Brighton Way.

It’s a new salon, and has the cutest black, white and purple decor, with a black chandelier, and Oribe hair products. My stylist is Melissa Barone.


I recently got asked on instagram by @mmchado872: “What colors do you ask for when you get your hair done?? I love your blonde pretty natural looking hair :)”

So, I asked my hair stylist what she does on my hair. . . and this is what she replied:

” I can’t really tell you much about the color I use, because it changes all the time. I basically do a partial highlight working with the natural tone of your hair so that it creates a soft pale yellow with lighter ends. A very thin highlight throughout and a little thicker in depth on the top to show more prominent highlights.”

I usually go into the salon with an idea of what I want her to do. Since I have been dying my hair blonder for the past few years, I can usually explain to her what I want done. She also takes a look at my hair, and tells me what she thinks. Lately, I’ve been trying to get back to my natural color, and to get rid of the damage that dying my hair has done.

Now, everyone’s hair is different. Different color, different texture, is affected differently by color, so it is really hard to tell you exactly how I get my color. Part of my color is my natural hair color now, which is a dark blonde. I tend to get a little strawberry color in it too sometimes. Lately, I have just been requesting for her to give me blonde highlights. Sometimes she does them thicker, and sometimes she does them thinner, to keep my natural color blended. She also said that she gives me thicker highlights on the top of my head so that it appears more blonde, and that’s where the sun naturally hits. But my roots are still darker than my ends, because my ends don’t have any of my natural color blended in. Here is a photo of what my roots look like:

I do like, and request her to give me highlights around my hairline all the way around my head. I don’t like the drastic look when you put your hair in a ponytail, where you can see the highlights stop because they are only on the top of your head. I get highlights throughout.
