Hi guys! For those of you who have been following me for the past four years, I’ve had variations of the high-contrast ombré from my bestie and hair artist Guy Tang! Recently, Guy has been busy traveling the world, so I went to his friend Liz Jung at Meché Salon to get my color done to a FULL BLONDE DO! I was super excited because I’ve been wanting this look for a while now. I was finally able to do it this week and I am SO HAPPY! It took two rounds of highlights – once all over and then one more on the crown but we got it and now I am officially platinum! My normal process in a salon is about 6 to 9 hours, that’s just how my hair is and I do a lot to it! Luckily I have super thick Japanese hair that it can be put through a lot!
This was my color before – the color was flawless and I still love the look – which I may go back to eventually, but you can tell that my natural hair color is showing at the root, which is black! Most of the time it is hard to lift to platinum but both Guy and Liz can lift my hair to blonde in usually one session! I am keeping the entire blonde look for now but I am still getting used to it! It’s a dramatic difference from being ombre to all over platinum but it is fun and I am loving it! It definitely stands out a lot more than the last do I had, and OMG black outfits look so good with blonde hair! I’ve always wanted to go full blonde and I am glad I found the perfect stylist to help me do that!
If you compare the two photos you can tell now I am so much lighter! I got OLAPLEX and I will be putting it in my hair every night for treatment and I am going to be careful when I round brush and blow dry my hair! I also got a haircut because the people at Meche salon told me that split ends rise up and I definitely don’t want that!
This is my natural hair length, it is pretty long and I have a lot of hair so even without extensions my hair looks super full. But for me, long hair is everything so I had to get some extensions added in at Bellami Beauty Bar!
The extensions I currently have are from Bellami Hair and are the color #18/Platinum! You can use my code Arika for $ off!
I will do an in-depth review on my YouTube channel but I just wanted to share with you guys my new hair color! If you guys have any suggestions on blonde haircare let me know in the comments below too and let me know your thoughts on my blonde do! love you!
