Golden blondes rules…especially at last night’s 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards where A-list stars ranging from Jennifer Lopez to Chrissy Teigen to Jennifer Aniston flaunted lightened hair and discreet, golden highlights. Tracey Cunningham, Redken Celebrity Colorist helped Amy Poehler, Kate Beckinsale and Dakota Johnson among many other stars, prepare for the awards with Redken color (who doesn’t adore Tracey/!!!) Below, she shares some of her “how-to” for these blonde-goddess looks:
- Amy Poehler: Tracey applied Redken’s NEW Blonde Idol Blue Oil Lightening System oil lightener (coming to Redken salons this March) to achieve a customized lightened shade that adds depth and incorporates the babylights trend that mimics the sun-kissed tones that hair took on during childhood. To ensure Amy’s color would shine onstage, Tracey finished with Shades EQ Gloss, an ammonia-free, no-lift formula that acts as a glaze, color refresher and color corrector.
- Kate Beckinsale: To revitalize Kate’s color and achieve ultimate coverage with natural reflects, Tracey applied Redken Cover Fusion, a low ammonia, 100% coverage color cream that gives hair a rich blend of copper and gold tones while adding density and fullness. For subtle highlights and added depth that would further enhance Kate’s updo, Tracey used Redken’s NEW Blonde Idol High Lift Conditioning Cream Color from the Professional Haircolor Collection.
- Dakota Johnson: To revitalize Dakota’s rich near-violet locks, Tracey applied Redken’s NEW Shades EQ Cream with Carmin’R (launched in Redken salons this January), a new introduction to the existing Redken Color portfolio that features a revolutionary dye molecule and provides a long-lasting red with a truer to red tone color for up to 40 shampoos*. For a healthy shine, Tracey finished with Shades EQ Gloss.
To continue to protect the haircolor after their service, Tracey recommends that her clients use Redken Color Extend Magnetics Sulfate-Free Haircare to seal in colour and deliver maximum vibrancy and shine.
