Sometimes we all wonder if we should go blonde. Even if you are a fervent brunette, the answer is almost always no. But sometimes, the blonde trends make us reconsider. This is one such time. Blonde hair is back in style thanks to tons of innovation and breaking traditional blonde rules.
The biggest trends in blonde this year are all about dimension. Richy Kandasamy (colorist, R+Co Collective member) says that there have been a lot more solid roots. These roots are meant to mimic or reflect natural regrowth. Everyone is avoiding harsh regrowth lines.
Don’t be afraid to go blonde if you have never done so before. You won’t be capable of going from dark hair to platinum blonde overnight. Redken ambassador Leysa Carrillo, a hairstylist and educator, says that you should be able to accept different tones to achieve your desired blonde. This will help to preserve the integrity and elasticity your hair.
George Papanikolas, Matrix brand ambassador, says that you should go through the process in stages in order to keep your hair healthy and shiny. Darker hair may require multiple appointments to achieve the desired tone. Orange is often the first stage. You should consider your time and finances to get blonde, as well as the cost of maintaining it.
Carrillo also recommends that you ensure that the colorist you choose specializes in your hair texture. This is particularly important if your hair is curlier.
“I would describe pumpkin cream hair color as medium blonde to light blonde hair color that has copper, gold, and red undertones–reminiscent of pumpkin. This color is popular in autumn and summer because clients lose their summer tan. Also, the weather gets cooler and grayer. Your skin will become more pale and cooler. It makes your skin appear more radiant and healthy by adding warm, soft shades. If you have cool skin and a pink or white complexion, I recommend pumpkin cream hair with copper tones and orange tones. ” — Kandasamy
“Platinum blonde and bombshell blonde are having a big impact. It is important to avoid yellow tones. It is recommended that you use a violet- or ash-based shampoo or toner at your salon appointment. Then, follow up at home using a violet neutralizing pigment shampoo/mask.” — Papanikolas
“I am seeing lots of delicate and sophisticated all over blonde trends. This illusion creates a multi-dimensional look with a variety of hues, such as the rosy peach blonde sorbet. Visually, you can see pinkish and copper tones merging together. This will make blondes appear more vibrant and expensive.” — Kandasamy
There are tons of contrasts
“High contrast with a money-piece in the front is one of the biggest trends in blonde hair.” –Carrillo
The balayage trend continues to be popular this year. It can be customized to your skin tone and work with your natural hair color. This allows even the darkest hair to look ‘blonde,’ which is flattering.
“People are more open to warmer tones for all-over blonde color.” –Carrillo:
“One thing that is universal is to leave some depth at your roots. “Leaving some depth at the roots–even a shade darker for a platinum blonde- reflects flattery and prevents you looking washed out,” — Papanikolas
“Peach rose blonde sorbet, which works on platinum hair or very light blonde hair, and then tones the hair with a delicate rose. This will make everyone’s skin look lighter for winter. This is a sophisticated, lighter strawberry blonde that will make blue eyes pop. Cooler skin tones will appear healthier.” Kandasamy
