Long blonde hair has to be the ultimate look – it doesn’t matter what else we flirt with we still keep coming back to the trademark of many a sexy screen siren.
Platinum shades look striking but aren’t for everyone. If you want to go extra light but don’t think your complexion can take it, try a few ultra-light slices through the front of your style instead.
Blonde doesn’t have to be about being the lightest you can go; deeper shades like caramel, ash and toffee all fall into the blonde spectrum and look beautiful placed as highlights throughout the hair.
This season’s blondes are pure tones of matte ashes and contrasting chocolates. Old-fashioned blonde highlights are replaced with discreet techniques.Hidden color and changing partings give a softer less bash effect. Honey blonde, caramel blonde, white blonde and toffee blonde mixed together make natural-looking hair colors. They are suitable for most skin tones and are therefore very wearable.While brown hair is naturally glossy, blonde hair needs a bit more to help to keep it from looking dull. However, blonde hair becomes brassy for a number of reasons. It’s often when the hair has been bleached or pre-lightened and the desired color result hasn’t been achieved. Too much sun and not enough after-sun protection can cause brassiness, too. Product, pollution, sunshine, smoking and chlorine all contribute to brassy hair or make grey/white hair look yellow. A sun screen keeps blonde tones soft and creamy. Shampoo with a hair detoxifier first, then follow with a color shampoo to remove the yellow from the hair. Invest in a good blonde shampoo and an intensive conditioner. Violet-tinted shampoos and conditioners are a godsend for blondes, as the color helps correct and counteract any brassiness within the hair.
