What girl has not dreamed of reincarnating as a blonde at least once? And many did it! Despite the fact that blonde hair is again at the height of fashion, you should not immediately rush to this extreme. In fact, the blond is not as perfect as it is presented to us!
Well, haven't you ever been tempted by the thought of becoming a blonde? Luxurious and fatal, or, conversely, elegant, delicate and feminine. It seems that blond has always been in fashion - both in the most difficult decades of the twentieth century, when there was no question of masterful coloring, and today, when experts are ready to offer you a different spectrum of dark or fiery shades. Nevertheless, in recent years, blond seems to be experiencing the era of its renaissance. He has even more variations than before. Some of them involve a total change in hair color. Others are suitable in situations where you are afraid to immediately switch to the bright side and want something in between, but no less amazing. And the third option is completely fancy shades, which are especially good for photos on Instagram or, in the case of stars, for red carpet. Or to stand out from the crowd:)
But no matter how beautiful some coloring in the photo on the beauty salon blog may seem, you should be aware that in some aspects the blond will definitely disappoint you. First of all, because the transition to a light tone always negatively affects the hair.
Yes, professional grooming procedures minimize paint damage, but not completely. And over time, you yourself will understand that your hair is injured and there is only one way out - to grow the length again. In addition, keeping the color of your hair fresh is very difficult. And if you are not ready to regularly spend money on dyeing and introduce a whole range of new rules into your life that will preserve the health of your hair, it is better to avoid some shades and dyeing techniques. After all, after just a couple of weeks, they will stop decorating you!
“It is difficult for blondes to maintain quality and prevent their hair from turning yellow. The color certainly and rather quickly becomes dull and "dirty", especially when we are talking about cold shades, "explains Renata Ramazanova, a hair stylist at the Keep Looking salon chain, and advises not to stare at such a blonde if you are not ready for the full range of responsibilities and consequences. … It's a pity, platinum looks so rich …
For the same reason, you should not choose grayish, ashy shades, which have already seduced many fashionistas for the next season. They also don't look great when paired with tanned skin, so it's definitely not an option for the summer.
Alas, the variegated shades of blond also very quickly lose their former attractiveness. Of course, numerous tint balms can come to your aid. But let's be honest: home staining with less permanent means doesn't look as cool as a salon one. And when it comes to a blonde with the addition of bright accents, there is a risk of completely ruining the shade of the lighter parts of the hair. You've probably seen blondes with such "random" greenish or purple undertones. Brr …
By the way, this also includes experiments with strawberry blonde, which, as beauty bloggers and influencers insist, rejuvenates and refreshes. Yes, he doesn’t mind that. But be careful with choosing a pinkish undertone - it should perfectly match your skin tone. Very often, strawberry blond does not harmonize with other aspects of the girls' appearance. This is because such creative coloring requires support in the form of special makeup and boring colors in the wardrobe. And not everyone is ready to change so much for the sake of a hairstyle.
Many stylists advise girls to begin acquaintance with a blond by making a light balayage, that is, lightening a small number of individual strands. And that's really good advice! The main thing here is that the master does not overdo it with these accents and "overload" the hairstyle. Otherwise, the intended effect of visual volume and freshness will not happen. You don't want your hair to look like some of the noughties highlighters do?:)
Another frequent tip that logically follows from the first options in our selection is to dye your hair in warm blonde colors. We advise you to stop at this, “For girls with fair skin, beige shades are suitable. They will not blend into the face and will beautify you. But for dark-skinned girls, you can try a lighter tone. But I recommend not to think about blonde for those who have serious skin problems. Light hair only accentuates attention on the face, emphasizes any irregularities and inflammations, thereby creating discomfort,”concludes Renata Ramazanova.
