- A natural blonde, PrettyShinySparkly typically has her stylist put both highlights and lowlights in her hair, but due to time constraints, she pulled a DIY, using L'Oréal's Superior Preference in Glistening Magnolia ($15) in hopes of attaining a beachy-white blond. When the color turned out a little bit too buttery-yellow, she applied Wella's Color Charm Toner in #T18 ($5), a subtle lavender, to counteract any unwanted golden-toned pigments. "After rinsing out the toner, shampooing, and deep conditioning, I was shocked and flabbergasted to find that I had accidentally created the most perfect, subtle, barely-there version of the lavender highlights I was so coveting," she said.
- Then, a few weeks later, as the streaks faded into a silver-toned lavender hue, she decided to keep the pastel theme going, applying Manic Panic's Cotton Candy ($7.50) and Mystic Heather ($9). The outcome? Fun and funky pink and purple semipermanent highlights that are perfect for Summer.
