Get the Look: Beachy Blonde by Kaylie Babajan


Hairstylist Kaylie Babajan recently had a client come in looking to revamp her hair color for summer. Says Kaylie, "My client was a first time client and her exact words were, 'I'm too all-over blonde!' So we opted to lower and blend her base and brighten her ends, rather than continue her full foil-base bump process from before."

The final result is a gorgeous, natural-looking ombré that's perfect for long days at the beach and warm summer nights. Below, Kaylie shares her how-to so you can recreate the look for your own client!

Get the Look:

  1. Says Kaylie, "[I used] Aveda Permanent 3N at the base with 4.5N in the Demi line on the mid-shaft. Apply both colors to each section of hair, comb through and then move to the next section.
  2. "Apply base to all sections and then paint Aveda Enlightener (bleach) with 30 volume and Olaplex on the mid-shaft, and 10 volume and Olaplex to ends.
  3. "Process the bleach for 20 minutes and rinse.
  4. "Soap cap in the shampoo bowl to really help blend any possible harsh lines that are left and tone with Aveda Demi 0N (0N is pretty much a clear gloss) with additional blue and violet tones to cut any remaining unwanted warmth."
