Who should do it: Someone who wants to update their hair color, but doesn't want to trek to the salon every six weeks to touch up her highlights.
Why you should get it: Chances are, you've pinned plenty of hair color inspiration done by master colorist Johnny Ramirez, co-founder and owner Ramirez Tran Salon in Beverly Hills, who coined the term "lived-in color" to describe the soft, subtle way he highlights hair -- inspired by his young daughter's naturally blonde and brown hair color. "It's color that is strategically positioned to have a mix of pieces that are solid and others that are light," he explains.
In other words, you get natural-looking, gorgeous hair that only needs to be touched up twice a year versus every six weeks, because you never get roots. Not only is that superconvenient, you're also not subjecting your hair to harsh chemicals as often.
If you can't make it into Ramirez's salon, he says it's important to educate yourself on your colorist -- certain colorists specialize in a category or type of hair, and that's where you should start your search. And bring in inspiration photos so you can clearly convey what it is you want (may we recommend Ramirez's Instagram?).
Know before you go: Set aside an entire Saturday, because it takes five plus hours to get the colors to look totally natural with no lines of demarcation. But the results? Completely worth it.
