A Different Approach For A Sun Kissed Look

 show3If you want a way to change up your highlights for a more natural look, try changing around your color a bit.  A lot blondes tend to do a partial highlight just on the top on of their head while leaving the underneath dark.  Naturally you lighten that way from being exposed to the sun.  Some times though if your underneath is too dark, it shows a lot of contrast.  I was inspired at the show when they recommended using one shade darker than the highlight color on top, to brighten the underneath without the having the same color allover.  That way you’re lighter and brighter, but it still gives that natural illusion of a “Hawaiian Highlight”.

Watching Takashi Kitamura Cut At The Hair Show

Not only did I get to learn some new techniques with haircutting and coloring at the show, but I got to sit in and watch Takashi Kitamura on stage.  The Paul Mitchell educator is definitely one to learn from.  Here he’s cutting a bob.   tak  tak2
