Brighten up with balayage or hand painted highlights. Balayage has a more natural effect and can lift about 5 levels. Cut and color by Kristin Jackson

blonde balayage

Balayage grows out beautifully with a softer line of demarcation or regrowth. Balayage is great for more warm blondes and creative colors, it can take multiple sessions to achieve pale white blonde or pastels. For super light or platinum blonde a double process, scalp to tip lightening may be a better option but does come with more maintenance. Cut and color by Kristin Jackson using Redken ShadesEq


Summer chop by Donna Rae


It’s in the details. Super textured pixie/pompadour by Donna Rae using Fatboy Perfect Putty.

platinum blonde

Platinum blonde achieved through a double process, hair is lightened from scalp to tip. Double processes require root touchup every 6-9 weeks to maintain an even color. Cut and color by Kristin Jackson using Redken Shadeseq

green bob

Double process creative color, also scalp to tip lightening. Creative color sometimes requires at home care using color depositing shampoos or upkeep with Manic Panic. These colors are made to fade and are not permanent. We like to go a little more vibrant for the color to last, super pale pastels may wash it in 1 to 2 shampoos. Topping the color of yourself isn’t too difficult and non damaging. The hard part is the lightening so always best to leave that to the professionals. Cut and color done by Donna Rae using Pravana Vivids.

Thinking about doing balayage hilights?! Here’s one of the best examples of slow and steady wins the race Ms. Khloe Kardashion’s hair progression from brunette to icy blonde. This took her stylist multiple sessions in a course of well over a year.
