Hair Trend: Go Bold For Spring 2011 With Baby Blonde Hair!

14 Apr

Baby-blonde hair may be all the rage, but it’s not for everyone. According to Marie Robinson, who counts Emma Stone, Naomi Watts and Michelle Williams among her pale-tressed clients, “It works best on women who are at least halfway there to begin with, and they need touch-ups every four weeks.”

That said, its brightening effect on the skin is well worth the effort. “It’s rejuvenating,” says Chelsey Pickthorn, the Orlo Salon colorist who coaxed the model Abbey Lee Kershaw’s locks to the perfect platinum.

“But you really need to assess the hair’s condition before starting and then proceed slowly, with great care.”


These colorists specialize in natural-looking hues.

Zoe Wiepert/Bumble and Bumble

Wiepert — the colorist most requested by Bumble and Bumble’s own employees — is known for her blonde, which can run the gamut from low-brow (she colors a few of the New York Knicks city dancers) to high (literally: Wiepert bleached models’ brows for the fall ’11 Thakoon show).
