The only way is blonde!
Very few people are naturally blonde, but this colour tends to suit most people with medium-to-light skin tones.
Don’t try to go lighter if your natural shade is dark brown and you have an olive skin tone because this would clash too much.
Blondes vary from coppery to platinum and all that’s in between. Golden hues and ash tones are popular shades, as are pastels and baby blondes.
It all depends on what suits your personality and skin tone. Even your wardrobe comes into choosing a shade, and so do your make-up colours.
This is where stylists would come in. They would guide you as to which shade suits you best. But even if you’re already a blonde, how do you know if your tone is the best for you?
Many younger clients tend to go for the ash’s lighter shades when going blonde, while the more mature client tends to opt for a more golden one.
That’s because as we age, so our skin tones change and we lose a lot of natural pigmentation. Thus, seeing a 40-plus woman with ice-white hair can be a little too striking for some.
If your skin is losing its colour, then a more softer, warmer shade always looks best. That doesn’t mean to say “yellowy” or “brassy”. It’s just a more flattering shade and is kinder on the complexion.
If you tend to wear your hair longer, then opt for a more natural shade of blonde because, sometimes, a mane of platinum hair can look a little “wig-like”.
It all depends on you and your tastes as well. There’s no point making a woman have a colour just because it suits her if she doesn’t bond with it. Sometimes, it’s a matter of compromise.
Just remember, too, that being this shade means extra upkeep for your hair. Extra conditioner and moisturising shampoo are a must, and try to keep it covered in these summer months.
We don’t want to be spending all winter trying to repair it because you haven’t looked after it during these months of intense heat.
Being blonde should be fun and not hassle. So if you give it care and attention, then there should be no problems.
And do trust your stylists, too, if you are asking for a shade of blonde and they say No. That’s because they are thinking only of you and the final result.
After all, you don’t want to be taking home your hi-lights in a plastic bag. do you?
