Margarine Hair : With so many platinum blondes trying to keep their hair cool_toned, it's refreshing to see a yellowy blonde that looks so fabulous. The key to Emma Stone's shade: It's buttery, not brassy. Keep your color happy. Balayage & Babylights Hair : Los Angeles colorist Chrissie Plisky blended two highlighting techniques ( balayage and babylights ) for bright, beautiful dimension, while adding a rooty look "so she can wear it longer without having to get it touched up as often."
Highlight with a toothbrush. Several testers shared a smart trick for subtle results : Use a dye kit two shades lighter than your color and paint on highlights with a clean toothbrush or mascara wand. Place them sparingly where the sun would hit around the hairline and stemming from your part, Hill suggests. Start from the top : Since roots need the most color (and processing time), apply dye there first, then comb through the rest of hair to distribute it. Work in four to six sections, like pros do in the salon, to ensure full coverage.
