Hailey Baldwin just freshened up her blonde locks for the summer! The model showed off platinum locks that came courtesy of some new highlights. Ahead, her stylist shares how everyone can lighten their look for the summer and exactly how to make your blonde highlights last.
Hailey Baldwin, 19, debuted fresh blonde highlights on her Instagram on July 28, and it’s a look that never goes out of style for the summer. Whether you naturally have blonde hair like Hailey and you want to go blonder or you’re looking to lighten up darker locks, you need to know what will work best for you and how to care for your new look. For all of the blonde highlights hair care you need, Matrix Celebrity Colorist (and Hailey’s stylist) George Papanikolas shared all of his expertise.
“In order to achieve a natural look, I always recommend that my clients stay within four shades of their natural hair color,” George says, adding, “This prevents from too much damage to the hair, but also ensures that you are staying close to what looks most natural to your skin tone and eye color.”
No matter what shade of blonde your highlights are, George stresses, “The key to keeping color fresh between dye jobs is a salon professional shampoo and conditioner.” If you’re not a full-on blonde like Hailey, try the Matrix Biolage ColorLast Shampoo and pair it with the Matrix Biolage ColorLast Mask once or twice weekly to help maintain your new color while rehydrating your hair.
For blondes like Hailey, George recommends the Matrix Total Results Hello Blondie Shampoo and Conditioner. “The shampoo and conditioner [have] chamomile within the formula which softens and detangles hair and helps maintain that blonde shine,” he says.
