Lisa Cooper, 52: Bleached-Out Blonde
The Challenge: Lisa colored her hair for the first time in her 40s. "The blonde was starting to look flat, and I wanted to put some sun back in it," she recalled of her decision to start getting highlights a few times a year. But "Lisa's color has now gotten so blonde that it's almost white," said Frédéric. And that bleached-out look emphasizes the redness and uneven pigmentation in her pale skin.
