HOOKER & YOUNG BLONDE ME


LONDON, ENGLAND—Call it a blonde extravaganza with different shades of blonde, used in a fabulous assortment of ways! Yes, hairdressing legends Gary Hooker and Michael Young presented Schwarzkopf Professional’s brand new BlondeMe range to a standing-room only crowd at their recent show in the UK! Hooker and Young’s artistry and showmanship wowed the crowd in their stunning presentation of the new iconic BlondeMe collection on gorgeous models. From champagne to cool fusion to rose blush, honey marble, platinum purity and caramel glow, the looks showcased something for everyone. The London kickoff was followed by shows in Manchester, Glasgow and Dublin—making the color trends ones you’ll be seeing much more of! “Gary and Michael are the consummate professionals, their knowledge of the Schwarzkopf Professional collection, particularly BlondeMe, is outstanding and they share their passion for the brand and the success it has in their own salons with their teams and clients. The way they bring their personal message to audiences is incredibly inspiring,” said Stuart Hamid, general manager for Schwarzkopf Professional UK and Ireland. Judging from these images, Sophisticate’s couldn’t agree more!

gone blonde sarah

Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has been gradually lightening up her naturally brunette locks over the past year, starting with highlights and working her way toward… total blonde domination! On Instagram, Sarah wrote: “They say blondes have more fun. Let’s see how this goes ;)” So far, so good!
