What Is Blonde Espresso? What to Know About This Drink

  What Is Blonde Espresso? What to Know About This Drink I consider myself a die hard Dunkin' Donuts drinker, but even I have to admit that Starbucks has always found a way to change the coffee game and stay in the public eye. So it was no surprise when the Seattle-born chain made waves with its new blonde espresso. That said, even the coffee obsessed had to stop for a minute and wonder—what is blonde espresso? Starbucks' new menu item is bound to be a hit with some customers regardless of what anyone else thinks, but is it really all that different from the chain's usual fare? Or, maybe the bigger question is, when it comes to taste and looks, do blondes really have more fun?What is Blonde Espresso?Okay, so exactly what is blond

"The appointment took about six hours," colorist Aura Friedman tells Refinery29. As you might have guessed, this wasn't your standard color refresh; rather, Meester was undergoing a full-blown transformation... of the platinum blond persuasion.

Her inspiration: actress Jayne Mansfield, who was one of the first Playboy Playmates (and also a natural brunette). "I wanted that old Hollywood glamour look," Friedman says. "Leighton has these bedroom brown eyes, so she needs a softer platinum as opposed to a super cool color so it won't overpower her very soft features. I even left a little shadow at the roots so it wouldn't look like such a stark contrast. She was such an iconic brunette. Now she looks like an iconic blond."

The Butterbeer Latte Is Back At Starbucks Under A Different Name

  The Butterbeer Latte Is Back At Starbucks Under A Different Name Those who frequent forums devoted to exploring all the so-called "secret" menu items that can be ordered at Starbucks are certainly all too familiar with the Harry Potter-inspired Butterbeer Latte. As tempted as we have been by the idea of drinking a beverage close to the boy wizard’s go-to Three Broomsticks order, we haven’t actually tried this Butterbeer Latte simply because we don’t want to be too much of a bother to our baristas. Now, however, we won’t have to worry about that because the drink is coming back to Starbucks’ official menu.

While it may not be the actress' first foray into brighter pastures — Meester once admitted she almost didn't get the part in GG because her dusty blond hair color was too similar to Blake Lively's — this is the first time she's gone full platinum.

"When she first looked in the mirror, she was basically in shock," Friedman laughs. "But she's in love with her hair. After we did the color, we took some photos and she already had makeup on, but as soon as we were done, she put on a red lipstick. She kept touching herself up in the mirror because it's such a huge difference. That's all part of the fun — when you go through such a major color change, you want to play with different makeup to see what works."

Coffee Snobs Will Never Love You, Starbucks

  Coffee Snobs Will Never Love You, Starbucks <p>The coffee giant is trying (and failing) to appeal to third-wave connoisseurs.</p>I wanted to know what the big deal was, and why the $27 billion company was trying to offer such a product, which it added to its menus in January. I’m a longtime lover of coffee — I’ve worked in the industry, written extensively about it, and have consumed variations of the drink for as long as I can remember. This “blonde espresso” seemed like a nod toward people like me — a certain speciality product for high-minded and coffee-distinguishing individuals.

My long, wavy hair got a lot of mileage, so it was time for a change.” Listed below are some Leighton Meester hair secrets: 1. Leighton is a natural blonde , but initially dyed her hair dark brunette to play Blair.

Obviously, going from dark brunette to a bright blond can wreak havoc on your hair. But Friedman says that Meester left the salon with softer-than-ever texture for two reasons. First, she did what's called a "virgin application " in a single sitting. "Colorists have a few schools of thought when it comes to the best way to go platinum: Some like to take brunettes to a banana yellow color first; I think it's the least abrasive and damaging to do it in one day," she adds. "I'll lighten it all up right away, leaving the bleach on until it's ready to tone."

Second, she did some serious damage control with the Nexxus Reconstructing Protein Treatment, which has keratin proteins that "repair exactly the kind of damage going platinum can cause," explains Friedman, who is an ambassador for the brand.

Now, only question remains: What does this mean for her headband collection?
