Dove Blonde: with Jacob Rozenberg and Schwarzkopf

Dove Blonde is back – thanks to Jacob Rozenberg and Schwarzkopf Professional restored Dove Cameron’s gorgeous hair to her original hue for a new lift on life! Find our how here!

We all heard of dove grey. Well now there is a Dove Blonde! Celebrity hairdresser Jacob Rozenberg relied on Schwarzkopf Professional to perform a major color correction on Dove Cameron. The beautiful young star of stage, screen and Spotify was eager to return to her natural shade of blonde.

When doing a massive color correction, you really need to let the hair dictate how light you can get,” shares Jacob when asked about his inspiration. “Once I could tell her hair was going to lift beautifully and stay healthy, we picked a couple of inspiration photos from Doves’ archive. After all, she has been blonde for almost her whole life – until three years ago. Some images were lived-in Rootie blondes, others were more platinum. I didn’t want to compromise the integrity so we decided against pushing her hair too far and to opt for her natural color with balayage through the ends.”

Dove Blonde: getting the look

Jacob explained, “Dove started with a level 3 brown hair that was colored an intense red color last year. She has 1/4″ of regrowth. For this reason lightener was applied in sections and occurred over multiple days. Sections were worked on separately, starting in the back, then sides, followed by the top with the hairline last.)”


  • Before each session, Schwarzkopf Hair Primer was applied all over and dried into the hair.
  • 1st round: Used BLONDME 9+ with 20 volume for first lightening. Focused on the mid-lengths first then applied to the ends. After processing, reapplied second application on mid-lengths using BLONDME PRECISION LIGHTENER with 20 volume.
