Butterscotch Blonde: Sweet, Easy, & Super Low-Maintenance


Featuring Joico Global Brand Ambassador, Larisa Love

Butterscotch…it’s a delicious blend of cream, brown sugar, butter, vanilla. And the same can be said of Joico Global Brand Ambassador, Larisa Love’s new Butterscotch-Blonde technique – a perfect, warm, beige-y blend that grows out seamlessly with a natural base. It’s low-maintenance and luscious; and you can watch Larisa bring it to life, here:

“I would recommend this look to anyone who’s looking for a dramatic change, but still wants something low-maintenance.” – Larisa

Larisa’s client started with a natural warm base, and was looking for some drama and “pop” without the need for frequent salon touch-ups. The solution – an easy blonde with butterscotch vibes — was not just gorgeous, but clever in its simplicity. “This is low-maintenance to start with, because we left her natural base for an easy grow-out,” explains Larisa. “But I added warm-beige tones, which make it even more seamless; all the tones will fade back to warm…which she already has.”

Toggle back and forth between two different types of shampoo/conditioner, advises Larisa:
Blonde Life Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner will keep the blonde bright and shiny.

For mega shine and moisture, apply Blonde Life Brightening Oil when styling.
