Trend Of The Month
Hints Of Blonde
Play with lighter hues for summer with hints of blonde. No matter your hairstyle, going gold will transform your look like no one has seen before.

BOUNCY CURLS: Blonde highlights on the crown of the head gradually turn a darker shade, giving you a beautiful gradation of color for the summer months. To create curls, use flexi-rods or pin curl the ringlets at night and sleep with a satin bonnet. This look can last you up to two weeks!
GLITZ & GLAM: Create an eye-catching look with this curly ‘do that channels your inner glamazon with gold-kissed ends. Wash and blow-dry locks before braiding hair into a circular pattern. Leaving out strands at the front, sew in extensions and mist hair with a silk spray before applying heat to lengths. Use a one-inch barrel curling iron and set hair all over. Pin curly hair for about 30 minutes and lightly comb out spirals.
A-LINE BEAUTY: Nothing is sleeker than a shiny, shoulder length bob burnished with gold! Braid hair into a circular pattern and place a weaving cap on top. Next, bond extensions to cap and layer lengths with a razor comb to give the mane a feathering effect. Curl hair with a flat iron and spray with a sheen. Use a pomade for sleek edges to finish.  



Since her days on Sister, Sister, Tia Mowry has become quite the stylista. We are totally obsessed with Tia’s ombre hair that show her natural roots and blend into a beautiful golden blonde. Her hair is styled in a trendy middle part and curling into perfect ringlets. The actress loves changing up her style and we can’t wait to see what she does next!
