I was at the store the other day, and a cover caught my eye on the magazine rack. It was Cameron Diaz on the August Harper's Bazaar, and I have to say she looks pretty great. She looks happy and relaxed, and as always I was coveting the hair. It might be just me, but I do think she's a little less honey blonde here, a tad bit lighter. I think it suits her (as does embracing the pale just a bit more).
The new color was created by Tracey Cunningham, Redken Creative Consultant for Color. She's offered up the secret details of how she obtained that great new shade:
• Apply equal parts of Shades EQ 09AA Papaya, 09G Vanilla Crème and ShadesEQ Processing Solution. For added dimension, add highlights with Redken Blonde Icing Ammonia Free Conditioning Crème Lightener. Concentrate the Highlights closer around the face and diminishing in the back. Finish with a glaze of Shades EQ 000 Crystal Clear for extra shine.
• Shades EQ is a demi-permanent color which provides healthy, shiny results, incredible conditioning with an amazing number of mixing possibilities. Shades EQ is used as a glaze, color refresher, and ideal for color correction. Ingredients include acidic pH; no lift, non-ammonia formula; long-lasting colorants; wheat amino acids, and silicone.
• Blonde Icing Conditioning Crème Lightener is ammonia free and lifts hair up to 7 levels while exclusive Lumisilk Technology smoothes and preserves hair’s structure to keep it healthy, shiny and strong.
Obviously, going this light is not something you should attempt at home. I'd head to my salon with these directions.
