- Heidi Klum: When lightening your color, be careful you don't go too pale around the hairline, or it can wash you out. To avoid this from happening, Canale recommends highlighting about a quarter-inch from the hairline, so that it blends more fluently with her coloring overall. It's the same technique he uses on Heidi.
- Kyra Sedgwick: If you are a natural blond, then follow this tip. "Instead of really making her lighter, we do more paper-thin highlights to create her look, because she's already a natural blond," says Canale. He then uses gold overlays for depth and warmth.
- Denise Richards: "Some people just don't look good with brunette hair," Canale admits. "We're taking her back to blond now — so we went from medium to light and we'll go into blond the next time. She just looks better with blond hair."
