What a pretty golden hue! Sent to us by Martin Rodriguez, stylist at Ooh la la salon & spa in Orange County, we love how the blonde transitions from a little bit dirty at the roots to a sunlit golden tone on the ends. The styling is great too. With all that length, the center-part creates a slinky seventies vibe while the ’S’ shaped swirls are perfectly placed to draw attention to the model’s lovely lips and evocative eyes. If you fancy a similar ‘do, Martin’s color formula can be found in the notes.
