But I like being blonde (or blond-ish). I think it gives me a lift. So I get highlights.
I prefer highlights to all-over color because (1) I think they look more natural, and (2) it’s not quite so obvious when they’re growing out. (I’m lazy about maintenance.)
Well after attending the Wella Professionals event a few weeks ago, I made an appointment with Diana at Salon Pompeo.
I told Diana I wanted to be “bronde” — brown-blonde, natural, been-spending-time-at-the-beach. I knew I wanted warm (golden) blond, not platinum, and I said I wanted to look like Bar Refaeli. Well, as much as possible.
Diana did an amazing job, and the color turned out exactly the way I wanted it. She said she used two different blonds, one brighter than the other. She used just the darker blond at the back (because most peoples’ hair is naturally darker toward the back, where the sun doesn’t bleach it as much), then alternated the two shades on top and around the face.
One of the things I learned at the Wella event was that Wella is less damaging than other color options out there. I have to say, my highlighted hair feels fantastic. From touching it, I wouldn’t even know I’d had any color done at all.
If you’d like to make an appointment with Diana or any of the other colorists at Salon Pompeo, their number is 214-979-0440. Highlights are $100.
