Style blogger Helena Bordon looks as radiant as her floodlights

Are you longing for a hair colour that makes you shine? No problem with floodlights! The somewhat wider blonde streaks à la Helena Bordon brighten up your mane in next to no time, without entirely changing your hair colour. What is known as “floodlighting” gives you a natural hue that is especially soft on your skin and really flattering for your complexion. The coloured strands are either applied using the foil technique or painted freehand, and are wider than usual. Important: Avoid being too precise, make floodlights of different lengths that are not too accurate. That keeps the look natural and modern!
