So Right Now: Look Who’s Going Lighter!
From Anne’s dramatic platinum crop to Sofia’s honey highlights, Hollywood is brightening up for summer
Inspired by Debbie Harry, she went platinum for the Met Ball.
The A-lister returned to her roots after going dark for a film role.
The Mad Men actress lightened her locks for the second time in a year.
The star ping-ponged from blonde to brunette then back to blonde in less than a month.
Switching up her hair color is “my only form of rebellion,” the singer told MTV.
The Modern Family star (who’s actually a natural blonde!) added honey highlights to her mane.
RULES FOR GOING LIGHTER
from Anne Hathaway‘s colorist Marie Robinson
Consider the Upkeep
Opt to go two shades lighter than your current color. “Any lighter will require salon visits every four weeks, unless you want visible roots for an edgier look.”
Chemicals and minerals found in salt water and pools can alter dye—even turning golden locks green! Before a dip, comb in conditioner to protect hair.
Use the Right Products
Keep your new look longer with color-safe shampoos and conditioners. For blondes, “purple shampoo helps when hair gets too brassy, which is common.”
