Seasoned colorist, Dawn Tracey, made going light look easy and effortless with actress Camilla Belle’s new sun-kissed look. A lover of a great natural look, Dawn favors soft, sun-kissed color that looks believably gorgeous—and she’s got an innate knack for the intricate work that it takes to achieve it.
Dawn made sure to let Camilla know to prepare. “I warned her to pack a lunch because the process would take all day, mainly because I wanted to maintain the overall health and shine of her locks.”
Eventually, Camilla’s formally sophisticated dark brunette shade was revamped into a playful light brown with caramel highlights that give her a more youthful and outdoorsy vibe. The style is easy to take care of and seems to be right up the actress’ alley.
Without giving too much away, Dawn shared the process in which she transformed Camilla’s hair. “I slightly lifted her base color to a medium-warm brown so that as her natural dark brown color grows in, it will blend nicely and give a bit of an edgier root look. I then did two rounds of balayage highlights; first, to give her an overall brightness and then the second round for extra pops of sparkle around her face and on her ends.” Clearly the long process was worth it and Camilla can carry this summer look with her into the new seasons ahead!
