22 Jan Before/After Photos: Haircolor, Style Trends 2015, 2016: My Journey To Ice Princess: Why I Love The Winter-White, Platinum Hair Look
It’s pretty hard to avoid the “Frozen effect” these days. The Disney behemoth has pretty much inserted its way into every aspect of our lives—even happy hour! Yes, the “Elsa cocktail” exists. Nevertheless, I admit that I’m likely the last person on earth that hasn’t let Elsa, Anna, or Olaf touch her heart.
It’s not like I’m some pop culture elitist. It’s just that I haven’t found the time to sit down and watch the flick. In all fairness, I don’t really have to. Considering the movie’s enormous influence, I already know the whole plot and every single song.
The power of Frozen has even extended itself into the beauty world, with the icy white color trend proving itself to be, well, white hot. Even British beauty, Suki Waterhouse, recently tried out the trend.
So, I decided to take the ice-cold plunge too, and ventured to one of my favorite city hotspots, Pierre Michel salon. With brassy strands and overgrown dark roots, I was long overdue for a touch-up, so I figured I might as well start the new year with the newest color trend.
It’s no a secret that I’m not a natural blonde. And in my many of years of bleaching, toning, rinsing, and repeating, I’ve tried out many different colorists at many different salons. But Pierre Michel expert colorist Nikki Gilmartin (above) knows blond. She gets blond. She does me.
Since I had a lot going on in my hair, we decided this would be a two-step process with lots and lots of bleach! I started off my bleaching session a little bit before the holiday to get rid of any outgrowth and brassy color.
An hour or two later, we toned my hair to a pale yellowish blond. I then made another appointment for a second intensive bleaching session to eliminate pre-existing yellow tones and get rid of any new brassiness.
I’m so obsessed with my new hair—you can only imagine the number of selfies I’ve already taken. Yup, #platinumperfection is so hot, it’s cold. And I feel frozen! I might even watch the movie. Finally.
