Hair Colorist to the Stars: Tracey Cunningham
I had the privilege of meeting Tracey at the Park Avenue Hotel in NYC at an event held by Redken. She sat down for an interview to discuss the summer color trends and gave a sneak peek into the fall color trends.
“This summer, grown-in roots are hot,” Tracey said. “Consumers want to look natural and feel sexy with their haircolor.” Darker roots, with the rest of the hair one, two shades lighter, portray a natural, edgy look, and exude a beach-feel, perfect for summertime unwinding.”
When I spoke to Tracey about what we can all look forward to in the fall, she said “Blondes will feature low lights, soft shades, and natural looking blonde tones similar to Cameron Diaz. Brunettes will be after true brown earthy shades full of life and shine. Think Kate Beckensale. Redheads will depart from strawberry red tones and go towards deep red shades similar to Lindsay Lohan.
Tracey’s favorite products are Redken. Her tip to keeping hair it’s best is to use Shades EQ Crystal Clear Gloss in between your regular hair color treatments.
On a personal note, I spoke to Tracy about my hair and she was warm and honest. If only I lived in California, I would be seeing her every four weeks faithfully to have my hair colored!
