If the memes are any indication, J.Lo and Shakira’s Super Bowl halftime performance was instantly a hit. Apart from their stellar performances, tributes to culture, and out of this world dance moves, it’s safe to say that post-performance everyone was immediately Googling their style! While you might still be on the search for where one finds a sparkly sheer bodysuit or belly dancing lessons near you, we’ve got good news! We connected with Redken Celebrity Colorist Tracey Cunningham (@traceycunningham1) to get the scoop on J. Lo’s honey brown haircolor.
J.Lo’s signature style has changed from time to time but has always stayed within a similar color family. When describing J.Lo’s color, Tracey shared: “J. Lo has always been a honey brown. Her perfectly highlighted hair has remained consistently gorgeous throughout every stage of her career. Sometimes I add in some more blonde highlights, which blend in so well with the honey and light brown, but I really love her both ways. Her skin is so perfect, creamy and golden, so the lighter colors add depth to her overall color. To maintain this look, I suggest seeing your colorist every six weeks for a touch-up and Redken Shades EQ Gloss to keep your color looking fresh, bright and with fabulous shine.”
Paying close attention to your client’s skin tone and overall lifestyle can help you create a tone that works perfectly for them. Your clients will continue to go through subtle transformations over time but this season we’re forecasting some serious golden vibes all season long.
