5 Highlighting Techniques That Will Give You the Best Hair Color of Your Life ~ Marie Claire
Lived-In Color. Meant to mimic that perfect, sun-kissed color you had when you were summering as a kid, Johnny Ramirez, who is one half of L.A.’s Ramirez-Tran salon, was originally inspired by the tones in his daughter’s natural blonde hair when he created his signature “lived-in color” method. Ramirez begins by analyzing a client’s skin tone and eye color, then depending on the season, decides how light or dark they should go.Then, he meticulously highlights the entire head, creating a fake root in the process. Particularly if the client has virgin or darker hair, he will gradually take them blonder as opposed to doing it one sitting.
