Cameron Diaz’s hair colorist advises bottle blondes to have hair no longer than mid-length.
Based in Los Angeles, Tracey Cunningham is Redken’s creative consultant for color. She’s worked with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Bosworth as well as Cameron and says blonde is the color of the moment.
However, as stylish as it looks it can be tough to maintain.
“This process involves a lot of bleach to strip away your natural color and everyone’s hair reacts differently to it,” she explained.
“I always recommend using a hydrating mask regularly post-color to prevent breakage and going for a shorter style no longer than mid-length.”
Tracey added it’s important to have the right expectations about what can be achieved with locks. Achieving your dream color may take some time, so be prepared for several salon trips.
“All of my clients’ color was created over time – not overnight – so you need to allow several salon visits before you achieve your desired shade,” she told InStyle.
