While rumour has it blondes do have more fun, the right blonde colour for your skin tone oozes luxury! No wonder so many Hollywood stars are turning to dazzling golds, sparkling champagnes and other outstanding blonde hues to illuminate their skin and eyes – and the big screen! While genetically blonde is a rare hair colour, thanks to the ‘magic potions’ of Goldwell Haircolour, at Epic Hair Salons we can match back the perfect blonde for you! The Hollywood stars don’t have dibs on having all the fun, you know!
Deciding on the right shade of blonde for you comes down to your skin tone. If you have fair skin, the perfect balance is achieved with cool, pale tones. For darker complexion, deep colours are best.
WHITE PLATINUM BLONDE
Cameron Diaz has a fair but rosy complexion and her icy white Scandinavian blonde colour makes her icy blue eyes pop! While platinum hair is regarded as hot, hot, hot for those who want to go forth boldly, check it’s the right colour for you! If your hair is black or dark brown it’s going to be a colour that is complicated to achieve, and to maintain. That being said, once you and your Epic Hair Colourist get it right, you’ll be instantly glamorous and definitely making a statement.
Sun-catching pale blond hues mimic the sun-bleached effects of summer. Gwyneth Paltrow’s hair can be achieved with honey at the roots and a weaving in of two lemony yellow highlights throughout. This sun-kissed look is fresh yet still luxurious, especially when styled well.
Taylor Swift has made a switch – from her platinum blonde hair to a more conservative, soft, sandy-blonde shape. Try a sandy-blonde base with a few sunny highlights to ramp it up to a summer blonde.
For a chic summer look, it’s time to rock a vanilla blonde like Emma Roberts who moved away from her auburn-coloured hair. This is the lightest shade of blonde. It’s achieved with a shiny golden blonde combined with pale highlights. Be warning, you need regular touch-ups on your roots with this one. (Unless you want to transition into a balayage style!)
Champagne blonde is the perfect colour for pale skin tones. It presents a colour with almost a soft pink-y cast that gives off the illusion of a glow for those with porcelain complexions and light-coloured eyes like Reese Witherspoon.
There’s a whole range of blonde tones to choose from and colouring styles. Remember with blonde colours, to visit your Epic colourist for a touch-up every 6 to 8 weeks. And to minimise fading, use sulphate-free shampoos and conditioners and any other products recommended to you. This is not only to protect your colour but the condition of your gorgeous hair too.
