Welcome to another episode of the hair files. I got my latest color and highlights done at Santa Monica’s famous Fred Segal Salon and I have to say, I’m pretty into it! If you read my blog, you KNOW how picky I am with my color and I definitely don’t let just anyone touch it so when I was offered the chance to one, try out such an awesome salon and two, get my highlights done by the owner, Matthew Preece, I jumped at the opportunity. Matthew has devoted clientele that includes LeAnn Rimes, Brooke Burke, Jamie Pressley and even Tony Robbins so I knew that I’d be in excellent hands.
I wanted to go a bit lighter (shocker) and after Matthew suggested that he first lighten my base, I definitely got a little nervous since my hair sometimes turns a bit red at the base if done incorrectly; but Matthew assured me it would look awesome…and he was RIGHT. He lightened my base just the right amount and then put even lighter highlights over the base color to lighten up the hair around my face. The verdict? Happy.
