Keri Hilson's Summer Hair Makeover
Looks like I'm not the only one who wanted to go lighter this summer. Keri Hilson, who usually sports a softer chocolate brown hue, got herself a new look for summer with the help of Rita Hazan, celebrity stylist and owner of the Rita Hazan salon.
Hazan took Hilson's color and kicked up the blonde, which pairs nicely with her short and sexy new cut. Asked about the inspiration of this new style, Hazan said, "Keri had medium-brown hair. I thought it would be cool to leave the sides dark and lighten the whole top to a honey blonde with many different tones. She is gorgeous, and that always makes my job easier!"
This hair makeover is definitely one that could turn a head or two on the red carpet. What makes it look even better is the versatility that goes with it. Hilson can leave it smooth and natural or pump it up, as she did here at an Interscope event this week. The hair is great, but what is really slamming this out of the beauty baseball park is her neon purple eye shadow. Bright shades and bold makeup are a huge summer trend, and it's good to know that she agrees with our girl Brooklyn Decker when it comes to punching up the eye makeup to really make your eyes stand out.
What do you think of Hilson's look? Are you a believer in trying any trend once, or is the hair and makeup combo too much?
