When I think “natural color,” my first thought isn’t “contrast.” But as Anderson explains this episode, it’s the key to getting that elevated, yet lived-in hue color so many of us crave.
“I always tell people you wanna make sure to keep contrast in your hair,” he says. “Imagine you have beautiful, natural highlights going throughout your hair, but imagine if they were all really close together and you had a ton of them right? When it grows out, you would see that really solid line that’s growing. Think of a kid’s hair: You never see roots on a little kid, even if they have all those highlights from the sun, because they’re spaced out and there’s all that beautiful contrast in there.”
