Shay Mitchell’s MMVA Hair & Makeup — New Blonde Makeover
Even though Shay’s hair is just temporary, blonde highlights are totally trending right now. Just about everyone is going blonde for the summer! We just saw Selena Gomez get blonde highlights and soon after Lea Michele debuted some on the red carpet.
Emma Roberts also ditched her red hair and went back to blonde.
Cassandra Cuccia, a colorist at the Marie Robinson Salon told HollywoodLife.com:
“If you’re a brunette looking to lighten up your hair for summer, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Depending on your style, you may want very subtle tone-on-tone highlights — or maybe you’re looking for a brighter, bolder contrast. Either way, the highlights should be blended and deeper at the root so that they’ll grow out seamlessly.”
She added: “Given your skin and eye color, the highlights should be either more golden or sandy. Overly ashy highlights on brunette hair tend to look dry and lackluster, while warmer tones reflect more light and make the hair look healthier. Because highlights on dark hair can seem like a big change, bringing in pictures of what you like can aid in ensuring that you and your colorist understand one another.”
