’Tis the sea­son to lighten up! But one star proves sun-kissed strands aren’t al­ways the right move

Stars lighten up their locks in the sum­mer, but one took it too far


We couldn’t help but won­der, how did light­en­ing Sarah Jes­sica Parker’s frizzy mane trans­form it into a glossy, smooth and bouncy head of hair? “The se­cret’s in the con­trast,” says SJP’S go-to col­orist, Gina Gil­bert of Serge Nor­mant at John Frieda sa­lon in NYC. “I made the base a half shade darker and lifted the ends to a light golden blond.” This makes high­lights pop as they re­flect light for a prism ef­fect. The shiny ac­cents also brighten skin for a lit-from-within glow!


”I’ve never changed my ap­pear­ance, [so I de­cided] ‘I’m gonna f**k up my hair,’” ex­plains Kris­ten Ste­wart on her de­ci­sion to go plat­inum blond. Mis­sion ac­com­plished! Go­ing this light re­quires strip­ping all the pig­ment out of strands us­ing the strong­est bleach, says Gil­bert. Read: Hello brit­tle, parched, fried locks. Plus, K-stew’s straw strands, dark red lips and heavy black liner rob her skin of its ethe­real lus­ter, leav­ing her look­ing less Snow White and more hun­gover vam­pire.


“I get a lit­tle bored, and as a woman, I want to change my shoes, my out­fit and my hair,” Halle Berry has said, which ex­plains the 49-year-old’s ever-chang­ing ’do. The rest­less star’s new face-fram­ing honey high­lights did her good by soft­en­ing her wild locks with­out sac­ri­fic­ing vol­ume. “Strate­gi­cally plac­ing streaks be­low a layer of hair pulls the eye in and away from frizz so hair ap­pears sleeker,” says Gil­bert, “while a few high­lights on top add ex­tra dimension so locks don’t fall flat.”
