Blondes have an advantage when coloring their hair. Since their natural color is already light, the hair will take virtually any color. Blonde hair is also easy to lighten and highlight with minimal damage. Choosing which shade to dye your blonde hair is an exciting process. You can enjoy it and have a lot of fun if you follow a few simple tips. Does this Spark an idea?
White blonde is definitely the most eye-catching hue you could go for. Gwen Stefani is known for her trademark hue, and rocks it with a cherry red lipstick shade. In my opinion, white blonde looks best on fair-skinned women. Although I’m generalizing with this statement, tan skin and striking, white blonde hair have the tendency to come across as artificial.
Sandy blonde proves to be one of the perfect colors especially for people with cool skin tones. An ideal example of neutral blonde without any golden hues, this shade requires you to apply blue based toners so that the yellow tones can be tamed once you have finished bleaching.
However selecting the right kind of hairstyle is also important when coloring your tresses with it. Opting for a textured hairstyle by cutting your hair in layers or including other interesting features like curls or bangs can go a long way in enhancing the look of sandy blonde.
Red hair color will look bold and brilliant when applied to blonde hair. Because your hair is already so light, the pigment of the dye is more apparent. Red hair color tends to fade quickly; on blondes, red will eventually fade to a strawberry color. A good way to keep your red locks bright is by adding a little pre-mixed dye such as Manic Panic to your shampoo. You can also buy shampoos specifically designed for red hair.
Going blonde doesn’t mean you have to stick with one color. There are so many color techniques to choose from, so there’s truly something for everyone. Balayage is becoming increasingly popular and looks especially good on blondes with a good base color.
