The California highlight.

Ilona Huzarevich is a Los Angeles-based model, originally from Belarus.

My hair means a lot to me. So, taking care of my hair is very important and I absolutely love spending time at the salon.

Every girl knows this feeling, walking out of the salon with a fresh blowout, after a favourite treatment and that amazing perfume smell from favourite products. It makes us girls feel so feminine.

Right now, I have California high-lights. I always blow out my hair with my favourite Dyson hair dryer, with a thermal protection to prevent any damage from heat. Then, I add some serum or oil and style my hair with heated curlers. I always get compliments about this look.

I work in the fashion industry and there is pressure to be perfect all the time. I used to travel a lot and work in different countries. It was almost impossible to have the same colourist.

Once I had an inexperienced colourist destroy my hair—bad products, wrong colour, and improper care for colouring.
This experience helped me seek out the right hairstylist, who was able to fix the damage.

For the past two years, I have been going to the same person—my hairdresser definitely knows everything about my hair now, so I trust him. While he colours my hair, he always adds a treatment, depending on what my hair needs.

You can always fix your hair at home with specific products, so my hairdresser gives me products for home usage. Deep conditioning treatments help me a lot, along with repair shampoo.

My hair essentials are Kérastase heat protection, Sérum Thérapiste Hair Serum, Batiste Dry Shampoo, and Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector. I like Olaplex shampoo and conditioner for summer.

Blonde hair is the most sensitive hair, so it’s important to take care of it. If you want to keep your hair healthy, you definitely have to use the right products for your hair type.

To prevent any damage, make sure you use sun protection, thermal protection before a blow dry, serum, and either a masque or oil.
