Some people will see it as an exceptionally light platinum color. While others will imagine a slightly darker golden shade.
Great Reasons For You Deciding To Go Blonde.
There are many reasons that people decide to change to a blonde hair color. But four of the most popular reasons I have listed below.
- You have become bored with looking at your natural hair color. And have secretly wanted to go blonde for a long while.
- Going blonde seems an exciting way to change your whole image.
- Changing your hair to blonde will give your hair more dimension. Because light hair colors reflect more tones than dark hair.
- You were blonde when young. But your hair has slowly darkened with age.
2 Important Points For You To Consider Before Coloring Your Hair Blonde.
Before deciding on the best shade for you or the one you would love to change to.
Think about your answers to the following points.
Because those answers will help you to decide how light from your natural hair color it is best to go.
Point 1. Maintenance Of Blonde Hair Colors.
The question that you should ask yourself ‘is how much time and money am I willing to commit.’
Changing your whole hair color to blonde can be a big commitment.
Depending on how much lighter than your natural hair color you wish to go.
The higher your hair color needs to be lifted to achieve your desired color. The sooner you will be visiting your hair stylist for a root touch up.
For instance. A full head of platinum blonde or very light ash blonde hair color does look stunning. But at the same time it will require very regular trips to your hairstylist.
If maintenance may be an issue for you.
Instead of coloring your whole head with a blonde hair color.
Think in terms of having a balayage effect or highlights. Because both would need a lot less maintenance and visits to the salon.
Point 2. Check Your Hairs Condition.
Hair in good condition will take and keep your blonde hair color vibrant for as long as possible.
If you feel that your hair is at all damaged. Work on repairing your hair before coloring your hair blonde.
Especially so if you are looking at going for an exceptionally light blonde color. As this may require pre bleaching.
Consider the use of a deep conditioning product for a few weeks before to help prepare your hair for its big change.
And if your hair is going to require pre bleaching. I do recommend that you ask your stylist to use an Olaplex treatment. Because this is a bond restorer and will help to keep any damage of your hair to a minimum.

Are you looking at a change to a dark, medium, or light blonde color. Or something a little more dramatic such as a noticeably light blonde or even going to an exceptionally light platinum blonde.
Do think carefully about the maintenance when deciding upon the depth of hair color to choose.
How To Check Which Blonde Hair Shade Will Suite You Best.
Once you have decided upon how dark or light you want your blonde hair to be. You then need to decide on the shade you prefer.
As a rule of thumb. Similar tones of skin and hair color complement each other.
With a golden warmer skin tone blondes of a golden, caramel, or honey tone. Will give your complexion a natural glow.
Whereas if you have a pale or pinky skin tone. Ash or beige blonde hues would complement your skin.
But if you are feeling more dramatic and really want to stand out and create a stark contrast. You can plump for the opposing hair tone to your skin tone.
Because with the right image that can look fantastic.
What Color Is Your Skin Undertone.
Knowing the color of your skin undertone will help you decide on the best shade for you.
It is important to understand that your skin undertone is the color beneath your skin that affects your overall tone. And should not be confused with your surface skin color.
First Look At Your Wrists.
If the veins look blueish or purple in color you will have a cool undertone.
If on the other hand. They look greenish it means that you have a warmer undertone.
While a mix of the two will give you what is known as neutral undertone.
Check Out Your Eye Color.
How much of a contrast do you want when coloring your hair blonde.
Deep rich warm blondes will flatter dark eyes of brown, amber and hazel.
And soft multi tone shades will compliment lighter eye colors such as blue, green, or pale brown.
Try On Your Jewelry.
If you are still not too sure on your skin’s undertone. Try on some jewelry and see which color feels good on you.
If you look great with yellow gold jewelry next to your skin. You more than likely have warm skin undertones.
Whereas if silver,platinum or rose gold compliments you better you are more likley to havecooler undertones.
