Hailey Bieber And Lili Reinhart Just Gave Blonde Bombshell New Meaning

On May 6, 2019, celebrities gathered in New York City for the year’s most extravagant night in fashion and thanks to the “camp” theme, the event was bigger, brighter, and bolder than ever before. Some of our favorite A-list celebs walked the pink carpet wearing avant garde headpieces, princess ball gowns, and dresses with trains that covered almost the entire carpet (literally!). However, a few standout celebs opted for an ultra-girly take on the theme—our favorites being Hailey Bieber and Lili Reinhart.

Draped in a floor length, baby pink gown and a perfectly wrapped scrunchie high ponytail, Bieber’s ensemble gave us serious retro Barbie vibes. However, it was her cream blonde hair color, created by Redken brand ambassador and blonde color master Ryan Pearl, that put the finishing touches on doll-like ‘do.

Hailey loves changing up the tone of her blonde throughout the year, but currently it’s a beachy blonde. She can pretty much rock any shade of blonde with her skin tone, so it gives us a lot of options and makes it easy to color...We did a highlight to break up her root a bit, but also kept some of her natural base peeking through to complement her golden tan and pink dress.

Wondering how Pearl achieved Bieber’s blonde hue? The colorist used the Redken Flash Lift Bonder Inside followed by Redken Shades EQ Gloss to brighten, tone, and add shine. Then, he rinsed her hair with the Redken Nature + Science Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner. Formulated with naturally-derived ginseng, this system adds shine and helps maintain radiant salon-fresh hair color with every use.

Another one of our favorite blonde beauties at the event was Lili Reinhart, who showed off an ash blonde hue with a vaudeville-inspired bouffant. The actress didn't pair her blue, off-the-shoulder ruffled romper, with any shade of blonde but a custom hue created by none other than Redken brand ambassador Matt Rez.

"Lili loves a cooler blonde, so we always go for neutral, cool tones when rooting and glossing her hair," Rez says. 

To get Reinhart’s strands pink carpet-ready, Rez applied lowlights throughout her hair followed by the Shades EQ Gloss.

“Glossing with Redken Shades EQ is always my first choice for my actress clients when they’re in-between projects or just for anyone who wants frequent changes," he explains. "It’s easily reversible, the color fades on tone and it keeps the hair super healthy.”

Rez rinsed her hair with Redken Color Extend Blondage Shampoo and Conditioner. This toning and strengthening system will help keep your blonde brighter and healthier. He completed the service with a few spritzes of the Redken One United Spray Multi-Benefit Treatment to add shine and softness.
