Chrissy Teigen is known for many things - her expansive modeling career, her relatable social media presence, her marriage to singer/songwriter John Legend, and her consistently gorgeous locks. The new mom-to-be recently attended the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Show and Tea where she revealed an extra-bright blonde balayage hair color, styled in cascading waves over one shoulder to complement her off-the-shoulder top. Below, PRAVANA stylist Jamie Muniz shares her formulas and technique for recreating Teigen's beautiful, perfect-for-fall look.

Get the Look:
FORMULA 1: ChromaSilk 6.11 and 20 PRAVANA Volume Creme Developer
FORMULA 2: Pure Light Balayage Lightener and PRAVANA High Activator
FORMULA 3: Equal parts ChromaSilk Express Tones in Natural and Beige


  1. Apply FORMULA 1 from the heat zone to the mid-length then apply at the scalp all over.
  2. Starting at the nape and working up, apply FORMULA 2 to varying lengths on each section, overlapping and pulling FORMULA 1 down to meet FORMULA 2 where needed.
  3. Once in the crown, move to the sides and work up to the parietal ridge then into the top of the head.
  4. Around the face and through the top of the head, apply FORMULA 2 closer to the scalp to create fine, highlighted strands.
  5. Process until desired lightness is achieved. Rinse and shampoo the hair with NEVO Reparative Shampoo.
  6. Apply FORMULA 3, starting the application in the back, working forward and at the base.  
  7. Then, apply FORMULA 3 to the mid-shaft starting in the back and working up.
  8.  Finally, pull FORMULA 3 through the ends for 5 minutes.
  9. Rinse and condition with NEVO Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner. Style as desired.
