Joico Celebrity Colorist, George Papanikolas talks about the latest brunette A-listers lightening up. To highlight dark hair like Sophia Vergara‘s it’s important to lighten your base one to two shades, says George. Any lighter and you risk brassiness. When adding highlights, opt for Sophia’s bold, thick pieces. “They’re a great way for brunettes to get an instant pop of blonde,” George says. George advises touch-ups every four to six weeks, with overhauling your haircare routine with color-safe products. Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley added a lot of baby fine streaks around the face. “Going heavier around the hairline gives an overall brighter effect because it attracts light and creates a youthful ‘glow’ around your features,” notes George. Camila Alves went for a sun-kissed ombre lightening only a few, bold pieces from the mid-shaft down. “The variation in tones makes it fashion foward,” George says.
To maintain your color and repair fried hair, George recommends Joico K-PAK RevitaLuxe. It’s keratin-infused to correct and prevent damage.
