Get Celeb Worthy Color at Home Thanks to Clairol Color Director Marie Robinson

Recently I received some great hair color tips from Clairol Color Director Marie Robinson. Direct from the red carpet for the People’s Choice Awards, she saw two big trends: Blondes wearing pretty shimmer and sparkles, and those with rich brown hair wearing bold, bright colors. So pretty!

The problem? Sometimes it can be really hard to translate those looks over to your own look, particularly if you’re doing your own color at home. Luckily, Marie shared exactly which colors you should buy to recreate those looks at home!

Bright “California Blondes” such as Julianne Hough coordinate well with sparkle.

To get the look: Try Color Blend Foam in 9-Light Blonde

Dark brown hair is the perfect backdrop for a pop of color! The Vampire Diaries‘ Nina Dobrev really was amazing in this Kelly Green. Ginnifer Goodwin also showed off in a bright pink for a similar look.

Try: Color Blend Foam in 5A- Medium Ash Brown or 5G-Medium Golden Brown

The night of the People’s Choice Awards Marie did the hair of The Office‘s Angela Kinsey. Angela was a great example of the Blonde & Shimmer trend, though lighter than Julianne.

To duplicate Angela’s look: Color Blend Foam in 10-Extra Light Blonde, the same color Marie used on Angela.

If you’re nervous about at home hair color, Marie recently gave me some great tips on at home hair color.

    I have good success coloring my hair with Clairol products at home – but the highlighting thing is tougher. My hair is very curly, so the highlights always end up looking clumpy (even if I use one of the little pull through caps).
