For The All The Blondes: Celeb Stylist Tips!!!

Whether it’s fresh honey highlights, foxy caramel panels or bold all-over gold, blondes really do have more fun.

However before you can enjoy being a blonde, you must know how to take care of your color treated tresses.

Stylist, GABRIELLE CORNEY insists picking the right shade blonde is the most imperative step before even thinking about learning to how to maintain it.

“The caramel is perfect for Olivia’s skin’s yellow undertones and she definitely doesn’t like it dark,” CORNEY says of her client Love and Hip Hop star OLIVIA LONGETT.

Hair that is colored in the most suitable blonde shade for your skin tone is essential making sure you can pull off the blonde look well.

“Our hair can be fragile and relaxed hair can create issues going blonde,” cautions celebrity hairstylist, PAT SUMPTER-DAVIS.

SUMPTER-DAVIS believes that her client NENE LEAKES, known for her short blonde crop, is able to maintain her color for a number of reasons.

“NeNe’s hair is strong enough [because she doesn’t relax it] to hold blonde. The color is amazing and really works with her olive skin tone,” says SUMPTER-DAVIS.

Because of the long lasting effects of dying one’s hair blonde, PAT SUMPTER- DAVIS suggests Juicy girls head to a color specialist to gradually lighten, minimizing damage.

“You have to be extra careful with blonde. Like gray, it picks up color easily, even makeup around the hairline,” she says.

The pro recommends nixing stray color with Avlon Affirm Gentle Assurance a base cream skin protectant.

While some Juicy celebs like NENE LEAKES rock their one blonde shade at a time, other Juicy girls like to mix and match.

Celebrity stylist JIM CRAWFORD loves RITA ORA‘s double-processed, pale yellow-beige blonde. “There aren’t any red or brassy tones- it’s just a gorgeous color from roots to ends.

Living the gold life may top most lust lists, but it’s not for everyone.
