Tips On How To Go Blonde

So many blond hair color shades to choose from and here are some tips to start.

  • Best to stay two shades closer to your natural hair color when you first start dying your hair.
  • Are you fair, medium or dark skinned? Your complexion will affect how your hair looks when you go blonde.
  • What is your eye color? Some shades of blonde are best with blue, green or hazel eyes, while other blonde hues look best with big brown or black eyes. 
  • Do you want a natural, sun-kissed look? Or do you want in-your-face blonde style?
  • Maintain the blond color by going to the hair salon every few months and using the correct products in between.


Tips On How To Maintain The Blonde Shade

  • Keep it hydrated - Deep treatments/hair masks are great to restore the moisture stripped from your hair during coloring. Also can help prevent further breakage from dry ends.
  • Protect it from the heat - Try air dry your hair and if you simply cannot go without a blow dry then use a heat protectant spray when styling your hair. And add a once a week deep cleansing treatment.
  • Keep it out the sun - Yes we all know how strong Australian sun can be. Harmful UV rays can dry out your locks, and turn your beautiful blonde shade a brassy shade of orange. Next time put a pretty hat on blondie!
  • Make it last - Let's face it over time your tone will fade. To help make your color last, We recommend Booking into your salon to get a toner done about every 3 weeks and a color renew every 5/6 weeks. 

    As many have learned in school, the shade purple is directly opposite of the shade yellow on the color wheel. This means that when the purple pigments within the shampoo are absorbed by your hair follicle, it then covers and cancels out any warm yellow tones within your hair.

Remember that the most important thing to do when dying your hair blonde is to seek the help of your stylist. A good colorist knows how to color any color of hair blonde, and can save you the grief of a bad color outcome.
