Want to switch to a lighter hue for spring? Take a tip from Smash
star Megan Hilty
, whose sunny blond shade hit all the right notes at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City. "Megan is the perfect mix of sexy and angelic that pulls off the ultra blond look perfectly," said her colorist Kyle White. "Her color requires a strong developer, so stay away from DIY dyes and go to a salon to recreate this shade." If your natural hair is darker than Hilty's, White suggests keeping the two most important factors in mind before committing to a hue: Skin tone and eye color.

If you had a golden head of hair as a child, chances are, that color will be flattering on you now." MORE:
