Reese Witherspoon has become one of our main muses. Her vacations look like a dream, she brunches like a pro and we kind of want to own everything from her new lifestyle brand. So it makes total sense that we’re also now totally gawking over the results of her latest trip to the hair salon.
Yesterday Reese shared this photo alongside the caption, “Nothing like a great salon day! Thank you @lorrigoddard for my baby blonde and @cervandohair for my rockin’ cut ! #summerstyle” While the new hairstyle definitely isn’t a super dramatic change, it does looks as though she’s had a few more layers added around her face. But to be honest, it’s that phrase, “baby blonde” that’s grabbing our attention. We’re familiar with bronde and even strawberry bronde, but this name is new to us. So naturally, we had to know more.
One of our B+C beauty expert and stylist at SF’s Archer Salon, CK Karkhanis tells us, “Baby blonde is a very light blonde that emulates the pure, almost vanilla shade of blonde ‘towhead’ little kids have when they spend a ton of time at the beach under the sun. It’s usually achieved these days with a ton of baby fine highlights with just a peek a boo of natural root showing like Reese’s – AKA what’s known as ‘babylights’ these days. Or it can done with all over process bringing natural color all the way light.”
Well, now that that mystery is officially solved, it looks as though we have a hair appointment to book.
Are you digging this baby blonde shade as much as we are? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
