Lighten up

I'm loving the sun-kissed strands I've seen on celebs lately! As much as I love the drama of the ombre hair color trend most versions seem a bit too harsh. I think the trick is to stick within a few shades of the same color tone and create a subtle fade from roots to tips. A few highlights added to the crown softer the dark root look and blend the shades for a more natural, lived in look. This is such an easy style with less upkeep for the warmer weather months. It looks amazing worn with loose waves and texture, give the flat iron a break!
