Soooo, you’re eyeing up those blonde shades, eh? Well, I don’t blame you. I have been seduced by gorgeous golden hair before, and although I’m sure I rocked it, I have to admit – finding the right shade of blonde isn’t that immediate. And once you go blonde, especially if you’re a natural brunette (or any other shade that isn’t blonde, really) you have to religiously commit to your hair goals with maintenance, a new hair care routine and salon appointments to keep those roots at bay.
1. How To Choose A Blonde Shade?
When choosing a new hair colour, there are a bunch of important factors to keep in consideration: your skin undertone, your eye colour, your daily makeup style, and last but not least (for obvious reasons, such as natural hair growth and regular touch-ups) your budget. Balayage and ombre shades, for example, are cheaper to maintain as they don’t require monthly appointments to touch up your roots..
2. Cool Undertones
Human complexions are made of lots of different palettes determined by hereditary factors such as eye colour, melanin, and hair pigmentation. Regardless of your ethnicity and skin tone, your undertone may be either cool, warm or neutral. Cool undertones are typical of those that can rock crisp silver jewellery and creamy neutrals in their clothing like no one else. If your skin has cooler undertones, resort to shades that are rich and textured with the colours of honey, strawberry, bleach blonde and golden blonde. These types of blonde work really well with curls, waves and bouncy blowouts that will keep you looking trendy and glamorous.
Think of it as the lovechild between a natural, light and dreamy ginger colour and a delicate, compact shade of breath-taking blonde.
