Sophisticate’s Blog:         Blonde Ambition


Screen shot 2013-06-25 at 9.08.42 AMDo blondes really have more fun? Summer is the perfect time to find out! When it comes to honey-hued locks, age is limitless! You’re never too young or too old to be a golden glamour girl. Celebrity hair stylist Nelson Chan gives the lowdown on this season’s chicest color.

“This summer, I prefer golden medium blonde, and warmer tones, which are great for helping women look younger because they make complexions look alive and youthful,” says celebrity stylist Nelson Chan, founder of Nelson j Salon in Beverly Hills, which recently launched a new Color Touch Up Bar for retouching roots in 15 minutes. “I suggest going for a blonde shade with warm, golden undertones like Naomi Watts,” says Chan. “Or else using Ombre to achieve a more natural look.”

Ash blondes look amazing on women in their twenties, but the hue should be avoided for blonde bombshells over forty. “The problem is ash color has cool undertones, which can look almost gray, and very unappealing when you’re already old enough to have gray hair,” Chan advises.

For actress Heather Graham’s recent promotion of Hangover Part III, Chan gave her hair a light sandy golden blonde color with soft Ombre, baby blonde highlights. “I wanted to give her a sexy, beachy look, as if she had spent some nice hours in the sun and achieved her highlights naturally. While Ombre continues to reign supreme this year, it is a much less dramatic look than last year. It’s best to keep hair light on the ends but avoid going too dark at the roots.”
