Debuting My NEWEST Hair Color…

(directly after color)

(week after color)

It’s lighter, brighter, and sassier… Golden, glossy, sun-streaked, and actually HEALTHY!!! (I’m clearly trying to channel my inner Giselle – as in, Tom Brady’s lady friend). The best part is that the color actually gets bolder and better with time!!!

Reynald Ricard, uber colorist at the Pierre Michel Salon in NYC, worked his magic on my mane. I wanted something that would POP – a color that wouldn’t become too brassy if I was out and about in the sun (as I am, 90 percent of the time, being that I live in sunny Los Angeles). So, Reynald did some baliage – where he “paints” the bleach into the hair sans the foils (I believe this is the ONLY way to have highlights done – the result is way more natural-looking). Reynald is like an artist, his canvas is the hair. He actually “fingers” the ends of the hair with bleach in a very crazy manner producing a gorgeous, au-natural “firecracker” display of highlights. Apparently, this technique is called, froissage and I adore the outcome – It truly is a work of art!

If you live in NYC or are just there to visit, stop by the Pierre Michel Salon and have a quick boliage or froissage with the artist himself, Reynald. And tell him I sent you – he’s insanely patient with my constant hair crisis!

And P.S. Ask for the head massage (Reynald is also a master masseuse – it’s half the reason I fly all the way to NYC just to have him play with my locks). Trust me, it’s like hair therapy (and well worth the three-thousand mile trip)!

So…. do YOU like my new color???
