We all switch our hairstyle game with respect to the seasons and winter seems to be the time of year to get all dark and deep—almost as if Autumn left us more mature and wiser. Jessica Alba, however, seems to defy the conventional style change. In an Instagram video, the actress introduced her new hair color for the fall. Her longtime hair colorist, Robert Ramos, is also featured in the video.
Jessica Alba is naturally a brunette. But of late, the 35-year-old actress has been embracing lighter tones for her hair. Ramos said that he took the liberty to add some lighter hues to Alba’s hair tips for “happiness.” Ramos upgraded Jessica Alba’s hair color to a honey blonde shade to bring a cheery feel to her look.
Ramos’ Technique to Color Alba’s Hair
Celebrity hair colorist, Robert Ramos, explains the technique used in coloring Jessica Alba’s hair. He said that he used a special technique to create a lived-in result rather than the look of a brand new dye job. He further added that he did a regular highlight job but feathered the roots so they looked a little bit grown in and irregular. Ramos used three different shades to give a more natural look to Alba’s hair, unlike fresh highlights.
Over the years, we have seen Jessica Alba in various styles of haircuts and hair colors. We loved her bob hairstyle phase as much as her carefree long waves. Her company, Honest Beauty, offers a wide variety of non-toxic products for skincare and haircare.
