Around this time of year, there is an influx of flower deliveries, chocolates and sweets, date nights, and love letters. This year, you don’t need a beau to feel loved. This season, the only date night you’ll need is with your stylist because we’re falling in love with these shades all over again - from balayage to babylights, brondes, and blondes! With love in the air, doing something for yourself could be just what the stylist ordered. Keep reading to see our favorite shades of the season and how you can get the look!

Shade #1 

Katie Nava of @my.color.chronicles and @exhale_asalon started out by babylighting and foilyage her client. Using Ultimate Blonde + 10 Vol, she lifted her clients base and then applied 6.1 at the root to create a shadow root and 10.7 on the ends to create the cool tone her client desired.


Shade #2

The next shade is one any brunette is sure to swoon over. This balayage bronde was created by Keune Haircosmetics North America Academy Trainer Jessica Bartolucci. Its caramel colors are the perfect answer to any client looking to warm things up this season without going too light. It will add brightness and dimension and is a great low-maintenance alternative for brunettes. Jessica Bartolucci finished the look by using Keune Semi 15g 7.18 + 15g 8.17 + 10g Grey + 20g Clear – Double Activator.


Shade #3

For brunette clients that are asking to be blonde this summer, this is the perfect antidote. This beautiful transformation by Macy Woodruff aka @ManesbyMacy was created by first doing a full foil on her client using Ultimate Blonde Lightener + 15 Vol. Once lifted, Macy created a root smudge utilizing 6.37 + 7.18 + Semi on towel dried hair. Then, gloss the ends with 9.27 + Semi.


Shade #4

Adding a dash of pink is the perfect accompaniment for Valentine’s day and the season ahead. We’ve noticed an influx in blondes dip dying or glazing their hair with an all over pink hue. This trend is the perfect next step for blondes looking for a change. To create this color, Alex of @alexlovescolour used Keune Color Craving in Pink Flush to turn his client from a cool blonde to a blossoming pink.


Once you’ve got the shade your client desires, don’t send them home without your top suggestions for keeping their color in check. More than just attaining the shade, your clients will want to keep it – so offer them a few of our favorite Keune products to protect and accentuate these lovely hues.
