The Perfect Blonde
You may hear this phrase often, but what really is the perfect blonde? It’s quite common for most clients to automatically assume this means an all-over white blonde colour, which it can be. But perfect blondes come in many different shades and depths. Beige, Honey, Golden, Strawberry and Ash blondes are all extremely beautiful colours, especially when they are matched to your skin tone. For example, you may have tried to “go blonde” before and have not liked the way it looked on you. This may not necessarily mean that blonde tones do not suit you, but simply that you may not have had the right colour choice for your individual skin tone.
Does blonde suit me?
If you have a cool, pale skin tone, most commonly you will find that ash, cool beige and white blonde colours will suit you. If you have a warm skin tone, most commonly you will be best to have rich honey, golden or warm beige blonde colours.
If you are thinking of going lighter, consider the following:
- Determine your skin tone and ask your hairstylist which blonde tones will suit you.
- Consider your hair’s history. For example, have you been colouring your hair dark for years? Have you been colouring it at home? You may have years of colour build-up that will affect your lightening journey. It’s extremely important to disclose everything with your hairstylist first.
- Determine what condition your hair is in. Although your hairstylist will try and keep your hair in the best condition it can be, lightening does cause the hair to become drier. You will need to invest in moisturising care products for at home. Alternatively, if your hair is in bad condition, are you ready to cut the damaged ends off as far as needed? If your hair stylist recommends your hair is not in an acceptable state to try and lighten, do not proceed and listen to their suggestions.
Our final tip for blondes is to make sure you keep up with regular appointments and take home the products recommended to you. They will make all the difference in maintaining the integrity of your blonde colouring in between appointments.
