Thinking about going blonde with your hair this summer? Need to brighten up your hair style with a fun new blonde look?
It doesn't matter how dark or light your natural hair color is or if you have dark or pale skin tone, there is always a shade of blonde hair to suit you. And blonde is still the most popular hair color choice for most women!
Here are some fun ideas for you to bring out your inner blonde goddess!
Brunette to Blonde
If you have shoulder length hair in a brunette tone, skip going for over-all blonde color. Instead, apply some rich caramel highlights throughout your style, focusing on the crown and where the part lands. Your textured waves combined with the rich highlights will reflect the sunlight and create an eye-catching look.
If your long hair is damaged or dull, purchase a good color protecting shampoo and conditioner to use before, during and after you color your hair. Make this part of your daily hair care regiment. Treating your damaged hair from roots to ends is an important factor in maintaining colored styles.
Finding the right shade
Before you settle on a shade of blonde, take into consideration your skin tone and eye color. Also consider your current hair color. If you currently have bleached blonde hair, you may want to opt for a deeper, richer shade of blonde. If your skin tone is very pale, you may want to keep your blonde shade a bit lighter. For dark brunettes, a deep honey highlight throughout your style might be best. Try to avoid bleaching as this just damages your hair. Choose your carefully, but have fun! And remember, combining a fun new blonde hair color with a new cut can completely change the way you look and feel about yourself!
Applying a variety of blonde hair colors throughout your hair on various areas of layering creates a very striking and unique look. If you have a light brown base, this is the best way to apply blonde highlights. Keep your layers underneath dark and then lighten up on your top layers throughout. This type of coloring looks particularly good on straight, medium-length hair with short or longer bangs.
These are just a few fun ideas for those interested in creating a new blonde hair color. Try to do something different and new with your blonde hair this season. Blonde hair in small or large doses is a good way to update your appearance and help lift your mood!
