Summer Hair: The Perfect Blonde

perfect summer blonde

In January my hairstylist Leah (who also happens to be a really good friend) convinced me to chop off 6 inches because my hair desperately needed it. My hair was so dry and damaged and it just needed a total change and overhaul. I also decided to stop doing straight foils to my hair (because my hair is so gray now, I needed a little extra help!). I started doing a color treatment, a beautiful soft brown… and then Leah goes in and does blonde foils from there. I had never done a straight color process to my head before, just the foils – so this was all new for me.

I have to say, I have loved the color of my hair over the last 3 months. It’s darker for me, but it’s been a cool and fun difference to play around with throughout the winter and spring.

But… oh, yes. There’s always a but… now that the summer is almost here, I want to go blonde. Not just a little blonde, like a lotta blonde! For the last 5 summers, I have literally just gone completely blonde from root to tip. This summer I want to change it up a bit. I want to go blonde, but I want to make it not as IN YOUR FACE BLONDE. I have been scouring Pinterest for some different styles and colors and I found 5 that I love and will be showing to Leah! 🙂

Here is my perfect blonde…

  1. Audrey, I love the sample you selected!
    I haven’t colored my hair at all since I found out I was pregnant with Anna, 9 years ago! I’ve been pretty happy withy natural color since them, but over the last year the grey is really making me look dull. My friends have been agreeing that it’s time for a little something.
    I’m ready to freshen up my look and you’ve given me the inspiration!
