BEAUTY BAR: Lowlights Lift Your 'Do Higher

Summertime is when the streets become the mecca of light hairstyles and highlights all around. This summer, between balayage,ombrés and just lighter feels when it comes to the dos of the summer, there is a lot of hair inspiration to be found everywhere. The one aspect that I think is extremely smart when having a generally lighter hair color is having great lowlights. Get to your hair stylists, get your summer-look going and with lowlights, you’ll definitely be a showstopper!

This Fashionista in particular has gone with a very beach-blonde color. With light colors, it’s important to realize that they can become quite one-dimensional very often. As hair also gets lighter in the sun during the summertime, an easy way to make sure your hair has constant depth is to add some lowlights. This Fashionista has light brown and caramel toned lowlights throughout her beach blonde waves, allowing for her hair to look fuller. These also allow the blonde become much more accented throughout her hairstyle, in contrast to the darker colors on her lower layers. This Fashionista’s hair, with the proper care to her color and lowlights, will never become dull or flat so she can style and profile for the rest of the summer!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look get an at-home dye kit, L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Color & Shine System will literally change your life. For your perfect lowlights, pick a shade that is two or three shades darker than the color of your hair, or of the color that you are rocking this summer. Use a shampoo that is specific for color treated hair like AG Hair Cosmetics Colour Savour Shampoo so it never goes from silky to sulky. Lastly, if you want this Fashionista’s effortless beach waves, use a sea salt spray like Josie Maran’s Bohemian Waves Hair Mist so that your hair never leaves the beach, even when you do!
