Spring has finally arrived! If the warm sunshine has you longing for one of the bright, sunny blonde shades trending this season there are a few things you should know, especially if this is your first time going blonde. Here are some things you need to think about before heading to the salon for a new color.
Your Natural Color
When going blonde it’s important to consider your natural hair color. The darker your color, the more processing that will be needed to attain an ultra-light blonde. If you’re going from very dark to very light, it may take a series of appointments to transition your color, whereas transitioning from medium brown to darker blonde may be possible in a single appointment.
Preferred Level of Color
Before making your final decision, be sure to discuss your preferred shade with one of our expert colorists. Some levels of color are easier to achieve and maintain than others, so your colorist can give you the advice to ensure the color level you choose will be right for you.
Complimenting Your Skin Tone
There is a myriad of beautiful blondes available, but not all of them are going to be right for you. You want a shade that will work well with your skin tone. Your colorist can help here by identifying your skin tone and providing you with several colors to choose from that will perfectly complement your complexion.
Your Hair Color History
Modern color and texturizing formulas are much gentler on hair than those of the past, but if your hair has been colored and/or retextured multiple times already it may need some special attention to get it healthy again before proceeding with a drastic color change. We want your hair to look amazing, so it’s very important that we assess your hair’s condition before beginning the lightning process.
Understanding the Maintenance Required
Before you commit to going blonde be sure to discuss the necessary maintenance of your new color with your colorist. If your new color is much lighter than your natural hair your roots will be more noticeable as they grow out. You’ll need root touch-ups every few weeks to keep your color looking gorgeous and natural. So it’s important that you understand the commitment before you dive in.
