Which Blonde Colour Will Suit My Skintone?
Firstly, you need to determine whether or not your skin has cool or warm undertones. Cool skin tones are defined by pink, red or blush undertones, whereas warm skin tones are defined by yellow, peachy, golden undertones.
An easy way to determine your skin tone is by looking at the veins in your wrist - if they appear blue you are cool toned, and if they are green you are warm toned. To complicate things even further, you may well be a combination of both, what colourists call neutral toned. If in doubt, book a consultation with a Blonde Envy expert. The key rule when choosing your blonde hair colour shade is to pick one that is opposite to your own skin tone.
The Best Blonde Shades For Warm Skin Tones
If you have a warm skin tone, you should choose a blonde hair shade which will compliment and flatter your complexion. You Blonde Envy colourist may recommend honey, caramel or butterscotch shades of blonde.
The Best Blonde Shades For Cool Skin Tones
The best blonde hair colours for cool skin tones are cool blonde shades, such as platinum, beige or sandy blondes. Even though the beige and sandy shades are darker than platinum and baby blonde, they also work because they are cool and will naturally complement your skin tone.
If you have neutral skin undertones you’re lucky in the fact that most blonde shades will look great on you.
What Else Should I Consider When Choosing to Go Blonde?
The most important thing to consider when making the decision to go blonde is the condition of your hair, which needs to be healthy before the bleaching process. The bleaching (or pre-lightening) process work to strip colour and pigment from your hair and, if not done by a professional, can leave your hair dry, frizzy and prone to breaking. Your Blonde Envy colour expert will assess your hair's condition and may recommend treatments such as Olaplex to improve and protect your hair during the lightening process.
Will Platinum Blonde Hair Suit My Dark Eyes?
One of the fabulous things about blonde hair is that it can compliment a variety of eye colours. Traditionally, lighter eye colours such as blue and green are the most striking with a platinum shade for example, but it really is up to interpretation. Eye colour and skin tone can influence the shade of blonde that your Blonde Envy stylist will recommend at your consultation, with personal style and maintenance needs.
Will Bronde Hair Colour Suit Me?
If you're not quite ready to take the full blonde plunge, your Blonde Envy stylist may recommend brightening your brunette hair colour with a "bronde" shade. "Bronde" is a mix of blonde and brunette shades, letting you enjoy the best of both worlds. This popular hair colour trend is available with a wide-range of dimensions and hue combinations. Best of all, it’s low-maintenance, natural-looking, and extremely flattering to most complexions.
