Louis Vuitton

I’ve been excited for this Louis Vuitton ad to come out for months! The blonde model in the ad spent almost a whole day at my salon getting the most perfect platinum hair for this campaign with one of the owners, Victoria. My bosses are both color masters, and I love watching the process of their work. If you could have seen the color in person, your jaw would drop at how flawless it is. Not a single spot. It is so evenly white, it looks like it’s her natural color. So beautiful!

Have you ever had platinum color? I am too scared of the possible damage and upkeep, but I’ve always been a little tempted to try it. It’s so striking!

    I have! After keeping my hair exactly the same for over a year getting ready for my wedding, I had a moment of insanity, hacked it all off, and had it dyed platinum. I’m naturally a dark dirty/ashy blonde. Frankly, it looked awful on me (I have too much red in my skin), and upkeep was a bear (it BURNS!!!) – but….it was pretty fun for a few months. I can’t lie. It was really brutal on my hair, so I don’t think I would have done it if my hair was long – but on a slightly grown-out pixie? Totally fine – and FUN!

    These pics are stunning and the blonde’s hair? Flawless :) Personally, I LOVE seeing platinum blonde atop beautiful women that it ‘works’ on, but I know I could never pull it off. Thanks for sharing these and what a great environment you get to work and learn in!

    XO,

    Flawless! Nothing stand out more than beautiful platinum hair eh? That’s so cool that you have such an insider’s perspective on stuff like this!

    Those are some pretty cool photos. I love the platinum hair. I’ve never been brave enough to go fully platinum, I’ve always just done the highlights. Right now I have peek-a-boos…..which I LOVE!! But that’s about as daring as I’ve ever gotten.

    On a side note….I’m still SOOOO excited to see HDOF’s makeover after seeing that Holly Golightly inspired black and white of you. B-E-A-utiful!! Just sayin.

    The ads are beautiful. I have always been fascinated with platinum hair. Especially those that are born with close to platinum hair. As a natural brunette, you always think it’s greener on the other side though.

    I’ve had this color! It wasn’t the damage that was so bad, but the upkeep. It doesn’t blend as well as highlights do when your hair grows out. So I was in the chair every 3 weeks. I was tired of it, so then I dyed it hot pink! Quite a change!

    I love platinum… it just doesn’t love me. I did it for a solid year when I was 22. I am naturally very pale (grey eyes) and my hair is dark blonde.

    For that magical year I sported a short bob with blunt baby bangs. Important in my year of extreme blondeness was my awesome colorist at the local salon. Without her I would have been brassy and had yellow undertones.

    My favourite platinum look that I would never have the guts for was a friend of mine from Berlin who had platinum dreadlocks.

    At the end of my year I chopped all my hair off, the damage was done. I became a red-haired pixie for the next year as I grew it out. Now I have long brown locks with a full set of bangs but grey hair is coming in now and I can see a platinum bob in my later years.

    Love it! I’ve always wanted platinum hair, but the idea of getting my hair chopped off again, I got a pixie last April, because of the potential damage… well I’m chicken! Maybe when I go to cosmetology school (just another year!!) and have more experience with hair, I may just be the daredevil…

    I just don’t know! I am naturally blonde and I’ve never colored my hair, so seeing as I don’t have a trusted colorist . . . I’d be too scared of it coming out looking like a Playboy bunny’s bad dye job! I also feel like it does only work on short hair. My hair is well past my shoulders and on the thin/small side so I think with that whiteness it could end up looking see-through!

    I had mine that color twice, the first time i just got tired of it and colored it brown. The second time it was so damaged that I shaved my head to get rid of all of the damage. I think if you do it right it is amazing, but never go from black to that color in one day, it doesn’t end well. :)

    my daughter is so lucky, she has the kind of light brown hair/eyebrows that she’ll someday be able to go either lighter or darker and she’ll be able to pull of either look. i have such dark hair on the other hand, that i could never go blond, let alone platinum. but i would love to! so fun! luckily, my natural dark is a really nice color on its own, so i don’t even color it (yet, i will when i start to go grey!)… if my roots wouldn’t show 6 hours after having it done, i think that platinum would be so fun :)

    I think my coloring would work with it, but I suck at upkeep… SO, it would be hein on me about 3 weeks in, unless I embraced the roots look. :D

    That platinum is ridiculously perfect–wow! It makes me want to go back. I think anyone who is naturally blonde can pull off platinum. You’ve already done pink, so I say go for it!

    i’ve had white hair for nearly 3 years now and never got it that flawless and white, mine is more on the silver end. I’ve been trying to formulate my shades eq 9v with clear gloss so it tones the brass just enough without too much silver left behind; any help to achieve her look? or perfect ratio for clear gloss & Shades EQ? <3
