Going from Brown to Blonde, it ain’t easy…
As much as we would LOVE to be able to take a raven haired gal and make her into the perfect icy blonde in one two hour appointment, it just isn’t possible. Case in point; Khloe Kardashian, if you see below, Tracy Cunningham, her colorist took her from a deep mocha to a pretty platinum over several months. In doing so she was able to maintain the integrity of her hair. Read the excerpt below for more info.
How long did it take to turn Khloé’s hair from brown to blonde? “Khloé is the lightest of the Kardashian sisters, and as a child, she had very light hair. Over the years, she went darker and darker. From the beginning of the transition—from her dark-brown hair to her current blonde—it took three to four months of gradual lightening.”
Can you explain each step of that process? “It was a process of adding highlights, then layering of highlights using Redken Flash Lift Lightener. Of course, one of my goals was to keep her hair healthy and lustrous throughout the process, so the steps were gradual. I used lots of Olaplex to restore the hair bonds and to make sure that when we had our ideal blonde color, her hair felt as great as it looked.”
What do you think colorists wish their clients who hand them inspiration photos of Khloé knew? “You have to be realistic and have patience and commitment. It takes time. It doesn’t happen overnight. Also, as a colorist, I will evaluate whether blonde is your color. Khloé is very lucky—she’s a beautiful brunette and a gorgeous blonde. Not everyone can pull that off.”
