Summer weekends you just might find celebrity hair colorist Brad Johns, color director for Elizabeth Arden’s famed Red Door Spas, checking out the hair hues on Long Beach, which is where he choses to chill.
Johns is somewhat obsessed with color that looks like it was created by the sun at the beach. “In the ‘90s, more was more,” he says, meaning you wanted to look perfectly done. Now, it’s about less perfection, more natural, sun-kissed color.
Johns offers his tips for seasonal hair color do’s and don’ts on the Arden website, reddoorspas.com. If you commute to the city, he’s not as pricey as some “name” colorists and watching him work (he can do five heads at a time without missing a beat) is a little performance art thrown in; call 212-546-0352.
