You've heard of the drink Long Island Iced Tea, but did you know it's now the inspiration for a new hair color trend? In the world of beauty, anything is possible, like beverages you enjoy at the beach becoming a hair color for the upcoming season.
"I love this color for Spring because it gives a bright, reflective vibe to your hair without the damage that comes from adding highlights," said Jeremy Tardo, celebrity colorist and Clairol Color ambassador.
To achieve it, he explained you should add color to the pieces framing the face and ends first. "I let that sit for 15 minutes so that it would get slightly lighter than the rest of her hair. Then I went ahead and worked the color all over the hair for the last 10 minutes." The hair color is great for brunettes who want to add more dimension to their look while still keeping it natural looking and playful.
Anyone can hop on the Long Island Iced Tea hair bandwagon, but the shade really lends itself to darker hair. "The best candidate for this trend is a brunette who feels like their hair is looking dull or flat in tone," said Tardo. "This color adds iridescence to the hair, which catches the light beautifully in photos."
Tardo added that if your hair has been previously colored a darker shade, you may need to undergo a bleaching process to lift that color before the lighter brown color can be added. If your hair is naturally dark, you should be able to lighten it using hair color.
