Summer Blonde

I love being a bold blonde bombshell, but spending the summer at the pool in my bikini makes my hair BLEACH BLONDE WHITE… YIKES! In the summer it’s so difficult to keep my favorite beige blonde tone rich and luxurious due to the sun, aggressive pool chemicals and scorching heat.


Blond Brilliance Toners to the rescue! These ammonia-free toners are rich and conditioning, so I’ve been able to refresh my blonde locks every 2 weeks without damage. The toners contain ingredients like acai and papaya extract to moisturize, and coconut and mango oils to smooth and condition my hair. Plus, they add tone in only 5-10 minutes. Fast, easy AND good for my hair!

My toner of choice is Champagne, which gives me the beautiful, tonal beige I crave.

POP the bubbly! It’s summertime!
