Most women choose to lighten their hair color during the warmer months of the year. This makes sense because it’s the time of year that hair would lighten naturally from spending more time in the sun. If you’re thinking of going blonde for the warm seasons there are a few things you should know before you dive in. Here are a few points to ponder and tips to help you decide if going blonde will be right for you.
Choosing Your Shade
When choosing your perfect shade of blonde, one of the most important things to consider is your skin tone. The right shade will enhance your complexion, while the wrong shade will leave you looking sickly and washed out. There are some gorgeous blonde shades trending this season, and a consultation with your Utopia colorist to ensure you get your color just right.
Assess the Condition of Your Hair
Another reason you might want to have a consultation before going blonde is so that your colorist can assess the condition of your hair. Lightening your hair does involve a fair amount of chemical processing, so if you’ve had a lot of chemical processing recently such as coloring or texturizing, your hair may need some TLC in the form of intensive conditioning treatments or trimming away dry, damaged ends to get it ready to go blonde. Hair extensions may help lighten things up safely in the meantime by adding in some blonde highlights.
Consider the Commitment
Blonde is typically a bit higher maintenance than most other hair colors, red being the exception. If your natural color is quite dark, you’ll need a more frequent root touch-up as your hair grows. Extra care may be needed to protect your color from pool chemicals to keep it from taking on a brassy or greenish hue. You’ll also want salon-quality products such as Kerasilk Color Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner to keep your color brighter longer.
