We asked some of our artists about their favorite summertime transformations lately, and the results were too good to keep to ourselves. Read on to see the looks and learn about how they were achieved—you might just find yourself inspired to find out if blondes really do have more fun.

To create this look:
We shampooed with hydrate and conditioner then prepped the hair with blow dry concrete and smoothing lotion for a smooth look! We then used a Moroccanoil one-inch curling iron to curl away from the face. Finally, we finished with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine and Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium!

Kaitlynn Eastham

For this summertime dime, we did a heavy balayage with lots of babylights and lowlights to break up her base. We used Keratin Complex Vital Shot to make sure her hair stayed nice and healthy during the process. Finally, we used shadow rooting to give the final soft blend we were looking for.

To create this look:
We started prepping the hair by shampooing with the UNITE Blonda Shampoo followed by conditioning with the Keratin Complex Blondeshell Conditioner to ensure the tone and manageability. Next, we went in with the 7SECONDS Leave-in Conditioner by UNITE to not only leave the hair conditioned but also to double as a heat protectant. We also applied Smooth & Shine by UNITE to maintain shine, as well as to prevent fly-aways and frizzing. After applying these products and once the hair was dry, we used a large round brush for volume and curled it with a one-inch curling iron. We followed up with Kaitlynn’s favorite hairspray, GO365 Hairspray, for this perfect, finished, beachy look.

Carragan Stevens

For this summertime look, we took this lovely lady a bit brighter with the balayage technique and incorporated a lot of teasing to help create a very natural look, while leaving her natural hair color.

To create this look:
To prep her hair, we started out with the UNITE Blonda Shampoo to brighten up all the blonde! Second, we used the Moroccanoil Smoothing Conditioner to hydrate and smooth her hair. For styling, we used UNITE 7SECONDS Detangler, which instantly detangles hair and is also great to use as thermal protection. Next, we used UNITE 7SECONDS BlowOut Crème to help smooth out any frizz while also reducing blowout time. Lastly, to style, we used the UNITE round brush to straighten her hair!

For this summer look, we chose a combination of foiled and balayage highlighting techniques. The client wanted to maintain a darker shadow root to give more depth and contrast between colors. With a mixture of subtle warm and cool tones, the color looks very natural and appears brighter in sunlight.

How to create the look:
To protect and maintain the health of her hair, we used Keratin Complex Vital Shot. This helps to protect and repair damage during the color service. To prep her hair, we first started with UNITE 7SECONDS Shampoo and Conditioner for moisture and shine. For styling; (in order) we used the UNITE U Argan Oil to lock in moisture and help her hair dry faster, followed UNITE BOOSTA Volumizing Spray and the new BOOSTA Thickening Crème to create body and fullness. We dried with a large round brush for a soft, “lived-in” look, and finished with UNITE GO365 Hairspray.

To create this look:
We used 7SECONDS Leave-in Conditioner to detangle and protect her hair for heat styling. We used BlowOut Crème to smooth her hair while blow-drying and so that it would prolong the life of her blowout. Shelby likes to finish off most looks using 7SECONDS Glossing to add shine and smoothness to the hair for a sleek, finished look. In order to ensure our client had frizz-free hair all day with a light hold, we chose GO365 Hairspray to finish the look.
