Ever looked back at your childhood pictures? Missing that baby blonde hue of your youth? Thanks to the latest hair color trend, babylights, you wear those childhood white-blonde highlights at any age. Unlike ombre and sombre coloring techniques, babylights look natural and equally radiant. And popular with trendsetters like Karlie Kloss (above) and Rosemund Pink, it’s hard not to want to rock this look. To get this style all for yourself, we’ve consulted haircare experts to tell us how to get this effortless finish.
“Babylights are delicate, white-blonde highlights created using a very fine color technique to mimic that baby-blonde hue. My clients often bring in photos of their children for inspiration, asking me to make their color look that fresh and natural. The result is subtle but beautiful,” says Joel Warren, Master Colorist and Co-founder of the Warren Tricomi Salon.
To maintain your gorgeous new look, it’s important to uphold a haircare routine to keep your color intact and breathtakingly beautiful. Aside from picking up the right shampoos, it’s always wise to keep up with coloring appointments as well.
“Because of the soft-handed baby fine weave, the highlighted roots are almost skewed or softened into the natural color as the hair grows. If you want to maintain a baby light look, try not to color hair or make appointments too close together.
Keeping the consistency of the look requires more root than a normal highlight retouch. Spreading your appointments out and making sure you’re not coloring the same hair will help keep this subtle look perfectly maintained,” says L’Oréal Paris Consulting Celebrity Colorist Kari Hill.
To get some glossy color yourself, use the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Ombre Touch to create that sophisticated babylights effect. Once your color is successfully applied, use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Color Vibrancy Root-to-Tip Fixer to maintain color vibrancy and leave hair soft and smooth.
