Our very own celebrity colorist, Denis de Souza, had his eagle eye trained on the red carpet during this week’s 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards, scouting out the best of the best hair in Hollywood. His take? After the sea of silvery metallic gowns that graced the recent Golden Globes, it was refreshing to watch a rainbow of jewel tones unfold this time round–emerald, amethyst, sapphire, and ruby—all of which set off gorgeous manes of hair-color, from the palest blonde to the deepest brunette. Denis’s nominees for best hair-color of the night? The envelopes go to…
What do you get when you pair the free-form appeal of Balayage and the gutsier note of Ombré? You get a technique that Denis coins, Balayaombré—lighter ends coupled with hand-painted, face-framing highlights to lend movement and interest to Camila’s classic side swept ‘do. What’s more, it’s a brilliant maneuver for brunettes who don’t want to commit to a complete change. For the ultimate protection: Joico Color Endure Shampoo and Conditioner, which work to lock in tone and prevent the big fade.
She’s due for a change, and this is the perfect solution for an expectant mom who wants the edge of sexy hair-color without the accompanying chemicals. “The strategy here is ammonia-free, demi-permanent color at the base, close to her scalp, and lots of baby-fine highlights throughout to brighten her overall color,” Denis explains. To keep Keira’s tresses lustrous and gleaming: K-PAK Color Therapy Restorative Styling Oil…featherweight but packs a punch.
Honorable (very honorable) mention goes to JLaw, who actually made her appearance at the Producer’s Guild Awards, but with her delicious and delicate blonde highlights, could give those SAG winners a run for their money. “Jennifer’s creamy, multi-dimensional look is worth singling out,” says Denis, who loved gentle allure of this actor’s stepped-up blonde. The best way to make sure this lighter hue stays sassy not brassy? Joico Color Endure Violet Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner—a work-in-tandem team that banishes any oxidized yellowing.
There’s brown…and then there’s THIS brown, which Denis refers to as “a really ramped-up brunette. So rich and beautiful.” What sets it apart from ordinary dark tones? An incredible intensity and warmth, which lends a luxe note to Felicity’s very simple updo. How to keep the dark side gleaming: K-PAK Color Therapy Dry Oil Spray.
