Vintage Oak Blonde from TIGI Copyright©olour™

This smooth, oaky blonde from the TIGI Masterbrand Collection has a contemporary appeal with a vintage finish. Dark blonde tones warm up the overall color result while creamy blonde accent shades add a bit of sunkissed whimsy to this sophisticated look.
