Whitney Port's Hair Color

Love Whitney Port's Hair? Get Tips From Her Stylist

You might remember my interview with celebrity hair colorist Johnny Ramirez, who has styled the likes of Victoria Beckham, Kirsten Dunst, Ellen Pompeo, and Amber Valetta — just to name a few. Also among his celebrity clientele? Whitney Port, the cordial, soft-spoken, lanky blonde from MTV's The City.

Whitney will soon have an old friend in New York, as Ramirez, who works at the famed Chris McMillan Salon in LA, is about to go bi-coastal. The first week of each month, the talented colorist will also be waving his magic color wand at Serge Normant at John Frieda in Manhattan. Check out what he had to say about Whitney's hair color, along with tips on preventing hair color from fading when you


If you like Whitney's hair, but a trip to NYC or LA is not in the cards for you, Ramirez has advice for achieving her multidimensional hues that you can take to your colorist. It's even recession-friendly, too.

  • To start: Whitney's hair color is light brown/dark blond near the top, and it fades into a light blond towards the end. To get the look, "grow out as much of your roots as you can," Ramirez advises. "I know it will be a little bit of a process, but focus on keeping it really soft and natural at the top. . . Have very minimal highlights at the top, and keep the ends light," he advised. "It's very low-maintenance."
  • Multidimension: When she first started The Hills, Ramirez says, Whitney's blond hair lacked depth, which washed her out. And now, "It's beautiful, healthy, and it looks natural," he says. "I saw baby pictures of her. It's exactly what she had when she was a kid."
  • Layer it up: Ramirez advises using a toner and gloss to keep the color from fading. "After about two to three weeks, the gloss starts fading away," he says. "Then, about two to three weeks after that, the toner starts fading away." By the time his clients come to see him again, their color still looks fresh. "It's time-consuming, but it really stays," he adds.
  • Refresh: "Stop by [your salon] in between hair visits for a gloss," he said. This keeps the color rich, and it's cheaper than a full color treatment.

Soon I'll share more from Ramirez, including tips on stepping up the color for the warmer months ahead.

Mine's not that dark but when I color with dark blond, it comes out a lovely strawberry blond. I can go quite a while without retouching. I try not to shampoo too often which also saves other resources. I do like her hair though.
