Changing your hair color from brunette to blonde is not easy to do, especially when you are prone to fine hair since it can result in damaged hair. Colorist Erick Orellana believes that in this case the “less is more” approach is best when taking clients from dark to light.

Recently, his client Barbie wanted a change that required severe measures, she wanted to be a blonde again and missed it, though the brunette hair still suited her very well, Erick and Barbie agreed that a softer toned all over baby blonde would be the best to tame the over all look and the best tone for her skin and eye color. With less steps than usual and after a series of highlights with just a little toner to help get any unwanted brassiness out of the hair, the results were pretty amazing, not to mention her hair still felt much more normal than if he has stripped the color first. Here are the before and after selfies she sent us.
