How to Get Keri Hilson's New Blond Hair

Keri Hilson's Colorist Gives the Scoop on the Singer's Newly Blond Hair

At the recent BET Awards, Keri Hilson walked the red carpet as a newly transformed blonde thanks to the skills of celebrity colorist Rita Hazan of the Rita Hazan Salon in NYC. Knowing that Keri wanted a fresh look for the season, Rita took the singer from a medium brown tone to this fun and trendy multitonal blond style. Find out Rita's tips on how to get the look, along with a few pieces of styling advice, when you read more.

To get the multdimensional effect, Rita recommends that you ask your stylist for darker color on the sides, along with varying tones of blond hues throughout, like honey, toffee, and baby blond.

While he didn't work with Keri that evening, stylist Eugene Toye, also of the Rita Hazan Salon, has a few styling tips to share on how you can re-create the singer's asymmetric bouffant: First, spritz the hair with volumizing spray like Barex Volumizzante Spray (28). Then, use a round brush to blow-dry the hair, focusing the attention at the crown. "Create your side part, being playful with the hair to keep volume," he says. Then, spray with a heavy-hold hairspray to set. And you're done!
