Eagle-eyed celebrity watchers (or just, you know, hairdressers) may have noticed Jessica Biel’s hair going slightly lighter over the last few months, and now she is finally fully blonde. The new look was created by celebrity hairdresser Tracey Cunningham (who famously took Khloe Kardashian blonde as well) and, miraculously, took just over an hour to create, thanks to some skill, superior products and forward thinking.
“Jessica was already two highlight services in, so luckily we weren’t starting with her natural base colour,” Tracey told Refinery29. “This time I used Redken Flash Lift to give her a full head of foiled highlights and balayaged the ends to take her as blonde as she wanted to go. With my assistant, I had a second set of hands so we could work quickly and efficiently. I don’t think I could have done it this fast without her help.”
Tracey debuted the look on Instagram with a before and after Flipagram, earning thousands of likes and tens of thousands of views in the process. The fresh new colour was paired with a complementary shaggy layer-led cut by stylist Adir Abergel.
My assistant @katmariesamson and I Have been slowly taking @jessicabiel lighter, but last night she wanted to go really blonde! We only had an hour to do her! I felt like I was on a game show, and I had to beat the clock. It took me 1 hour and 15, while Kat was diffusing the ends and I was pulling highlights…didn’t want to keep @hairbyadir , @karenkawahara & @tombachik waiting for too long! We used @redken USA #flashlift + 30 vol with a 1/4 oz of #olaplex, and then I #balayaged it with 40 vol and Olaplex at the same time. After, we rooted it with #shadeseq 7N + 7NB, and around her hairline we used 9N + 9NB for 5 mins. #beforeandafter #brunettetoblonde @olaplex #saloncentric @traceycunninghamsalon
It’s a big change for the actress who was sporting sun-kissed brunette locks as recently as the red carpet for the 2018 Golden Globes. Jessica usually tends towards brunette, especially in recent times, with rare golden highlights, but now she’ll be showing off her full blonde locks to over 5 million Instagram followers. It’s made international headlines and probably caught your clients’ eye – just your general reminder that blonde is the world’s most eternal hair trend.
