My natural color is light brown, and I go to the salon quite often for highlights. I’ve worn my hair with highlights since I was 20 years old, and I feel that the blonde hair is part of my signature look. My favorite look is long blonde hairstyle, straight or with beachy waves. It’s a very Ibiza vibe look. Since I’m not very good at styling my hair, this has been my go-to look as long as I remember. It’s really easy and only requires that I dry it and use lots of dry shampoo.
I’ve tried having my hair darker a couple of times—every time just after I stopped breastfeeding (which takes a toll on the hair). I think I just needed a really big change, but I always end up going back to being blonde. I think it lights up my face and makes me look younger, and it feels more aligned to my personality.
My hairstylist can definitely inspire me to try new products and he often does. He really knows my hair (and me), and too many times have I taken advice from someone who didn’t, and it ended up badly. When I feel my hair is damaged, I always go to the salon to get a professional treatment. It works wonders every time. My best hair tip would be to make sure to use lots of hair treatments to keep the hair looking healthy.
I only use products without parabens, and I prefer using as little chemistry as possible. I care about both my health and the environment. There is no planet B, and we all need to take responsibility.
Just before going out, I always use a brush and dry shampoo to give volume to my fine Scandinavian hair. It also keeps the hair from being too fluffy. I never travel without silver shampoo because I don’t like when the hair has brassy tones, and the silver shampoo gets rid of them in one wash.
Name a hair crisis…I’ve had it. I am so dedicated to my salon because I’ve had so many bad experiences; My hair was burned with a straightener, coloured greenish by mistake, and cut too short multiple times. Once, I went to a salon and asked for dark/mahogany hair but my hair turned orange, and it was absolutely horrible. It took three extra visits to get my old hair color back, and I will never try that again. So, when I finally found a stylist who understands what I want and colours my hair on point, I never go anywhere else.
