As the star of Twilight, Ashley Greene’s vampy raven strands were a perfect fit. But with a slew of new roles on the horizon, a change of image was past due. Cue a new golden blonde bombshell hair color, debuted at the LA screening of her anticipated new flick, CBGB. Fresh, bright, and playful it lightens her complexion, adding youthfulness and beauty. Ashley has been slowly lightening her locks for a few months, which is the safest way to go from brunette to blonde. If flaxen appeals to you, click style notes for our professional tips on changing hair colors. 

Step 1: Going from dark to light in one swoop requires a ‘bleach and tone’ salon color service. Bleaching hair imparts damage, and can leave strands dry and frizzy. To avoid that problem, it’s best to steadily change your color over time.
Step 2: Start by going light brown. After a few weeks, go back to the salon for a follow-up service that builds on the lightness to create blonde. Remember, you can tailor the tone of your blonde to you. Shades range from strawberry to golden to platinum; talk to your colorist about which tones will best suit your complexion, eye color, wardrobe and makeup.
Step 3: Upkeep is essential to maintaining dynamic blondes. Use color save shampoo and conditioner regularly and, on the weekend, switch conditioners to whipped treatment for a super-rich, color-saving treat.
