With the season in full swing, these lovely Latina celebs recently lightened their locks for a fresh, sun-kissed, summery look. Check out their new hues, then see our tips on how you can lighten up, too!
1. Celeb Summer Hair Color: Eva Mendes
Eva Mendes is lighter than ever. Her colorist, Robert Ramos, told us that he used a shade that’s a notch lighter than Eva's usual hue when coloring her hair for the recent MTV Movie Awards, then added highlights on top of that. "The streaks are thicker at the ends of her hair to mimic how natural highlights would look," says Ramos.
2. Celeb Summer Hair Color: Demi Lovato
Singer Demi Lovato now has sexy blonde streaks through her brown hair, creating a pretty “bronde” look we love! To copy the effect, place six to eight thin highlights throughout the top layer of your hair using L’Oreal Touch on Highlights ($11.99, walmart.com), which has an applicator that fits over your finger to help brush on color.
3. Celeb Summer Hair Color: Eva Longoria Parker
4. Celeb Summer Hair Color: Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba added just a few subtle golden-brown highlights through her sideswept bangs. We think the change makes her skin seem extra glow-y. Follow her cue and play it safe: Only lighten hair up to two shades when you’re coloring your hair at home.
5. Celeb Summer Hair Color: Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera is going blonder and blonder! Her cool-tone platinum is hot—but getting the color is a job best left to the pros. Since bleaching makes your hair drier, be sure to use a deep conditioner whenever you wash your hair (try Garnier Fructis 3-Minute Undo Dryness Reversal Treatment, $6.44, amazon.com).
