Soft Shaded Blonde

For your client who is always on-trend but wants a natural look, go with this soft, shaded blonde look. Inspired by the New York fashion scene, this technique creates a gentle transition from the darker root color, to lighter, softer tones through the midlengths and ends. The combination of warm tones complements her complexion, creating greater depth at the root area and enhancing and defining the eye area.
