Unfortunately,you can't see the subtle streaks/gradation in the color as much in the following red carpet flash pics as you could on a big HD television,but they'll just have to do.
Here's a shot of Claire with her hair down the day before the awards show.
"Of course,a more updated and modern version of this was my intention," says Amendola,who incorporated lighter highlights for a multi-dimensional look."Claire's natural color was gently lifted to produce a color that acts as 'back-lighting' for her blond highlights.The highlights are strategically placed around her face and off of her part to create maximum reflection and also allow the base color to shine through.The finished product is a modern take on old-Hollywood glamour."
But wait--isn't winter a weird time to go blond(-er)?Claire's stylist says no way."While old-school thought is darker for the winter,more and more clients are bringing the summer back to their hair by going lighter.Adding a few bright pieces around your face or strategically placing just a few extra-light ones off the part really perks up your winter look and lets the sun shine out from under your winter cap."
