Hair How To: Hilary Duff's Brunette To Blonde Transformation

Lusting for the gorgeous blonde locks as seen on the newly-blonde again Hillary Duff? Look no further – Tracey Cunningham, Redken Creative Consultant for Color and Celebrity Colorist gave Hillary those lustful locks.

To achieve this color, Tracey applied Redken Color Gels 8AB Stardust mixed with 8NA Mojave at the base and then applied 10nA Silk around the hairline.

She then used Redken Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner and finished by highlighting Hillary’s hair with Redken Up to 7 De-Dusted lightener and finished with Shades EQ OOO Crystal Clear.

Redken Color Gels feature the Select Dye System which contains 100% oxidative, UV-stable, long-lasting dyes for holding power and resistance to fading. Wheat proteins and avocado oil add strength and condition, keeping hair shiny and healthy-looking.

Redken Up to 7 De-dusted lightener Lifts hair up to 7 levels while providing predictable, extra light results with no added fragrance.

Shades EQ is a demi-permanent color which provides healthy, shiny results, incredible conditioning with an amazing number of mixing possibilities.

Shades EQ is used as a glaze, color refresher, and also color correction. Ingredients include acidic pH; no lift, non-ammonia formula; long-lasting colorants; wheat amino acids, and silicon.

Remember to use a haircare regimen to protect your haircolor.

Tracey recommends Redken Color Extend line which includes:

* Color Extend Shampoo

* Color Extend Conditioner

* Color Extend Rich Recovery

* Color Extend Total Recharge

* Color Extend Shine Enrich

Hilary's blonde transformation comes just in time for her rumored return to The CW's hit Gossip Girls.   The word on the street is that the newly blonde Ms. Duff will be reprised her role from last season as Dan's ex-girlfriend and hot movie star, Olivia Burke.  The fans loved Hilary in the role and would love to see her come back.  Hopefully the rumors are true.

Gossip Girl left us seriously hanging in its last episode before hiatus, wondering what would become of Dan and Blair.  Will the duo work things out or will the return of Olivia Burke throw a monkey wrench into their relationship?  Stay tuned, as they say.
