Summer Blonde Hair
Summer Blonde Hair
Who doesn’t want Summer blonde hair. Going a little lighter for summer is always a good idea. The question is how much lighter? This would depend on how fare or ash your skin tone is. Also, take into consideration your natural hair color. One would also want to think about the look you are trying to achieve. For example, are you trying to achieve a natural sun in look or are you going for a more bleached out, hair color statement. One should also consider the upkeep. An all over bleach could easily break the bank, as touch-ups should be done every 5 weeks. Balayages, on the other hand, can sometimes go 3+ months between touch-ups.
Before your Appointment
It is important to have a good idea of what you want. Go to Google and type in words like “blonde highlights” or “blonde balayage” or “summer blonde.”This way when you come into the salon you have saved pictures of hair colors that you like. A stylist may have an idea of what looks good on you. But it is what he or she likes. This way, a stylist can guide you based off of the above considerations. Please pick a salon that specializes in hair color. In the end it will be worth it.
During your Appointment
Plan on spending at least 2+ hours at the salon. It is also best to get your ends trimmed after you get your hair colored. Always visit salons that use Olaplex when lightening. Even though this product is a little expensive it keeps your hair healthy! Once you have found a stylist that does a great job on your hair, stick with that person. There are several reasons why. But that is for another blog post. A good stylist will consult with you about your hair lightening and explain why you should do what they want you to do. It may be a process that takes several appointments. Or it may be achieved in that appointment.
