Guide To Blonde Hair

Understanding Blonde Hair & Finding The Right Blonde Shade For You at Fox Hair Design Salons in Barwell & Hinckley, Leicestershire

guide to blonde hair colours, fox hair design salons, barwell, hinckley, leicestershireIf you are thinking of going blonde, but have no idea which blonde shade will suit you, let the hair experts at Fox Hair Design salons in Barwell and Hinckley explain all!

We can help you find the perfect blonde to suit you so please book in for a complimentary colour consultation which will be uniquely tailored to you.  We will take into account your lifestyle and personality, assess your hair type and condition and listen to your needs.

The terminology surrounding blonde hair (and all hair colours, to be perfectly honest!) can be confusing, so let us explain some of the basics when it comes to blondes.

[areaswecover title=’The Best Blonde Hair Colour Salons in Leicestershire’]

Should I Be Ash Blonde, Golden Blonde or Strawberry Blonde?

GOLDEN BLONDE HAIR COLOURBlonde is a broad term that covers all sorts of different blonde shades from a very light brown to the whitest platinum blonde.

Once we’ve discussed the blonde colour you desire, your colour specialist will look at your base colour. This is what your hair colour is at the start of the colouring process.  Base colours start at 1 for black shades and finish at 10 which is the lightest blonde possible.  

We would also decide which tone is right for you – taking into account your skin tone and even your eye colour to find a tone that ‘lights up’ your complexion.  Tones are wide-ranging and go from a brown mocha through to red, copper, gold and more blue-toned ash blonde shades. 

It is also likely we will add a secondary undertone to give your hair another hint of colour and make it multi-dimensional.   For example, we might add a purple tone or blue undertone to stop your blonde looking brassy.

Should I Choose A Warm Blonde, Neutral Blonde or Cool Blonde Tone?

cool blonde hair colours, fox hair design salons, barwell & hinckleyAs already mentioned, we will look at your skin tone to decide on the perfect blonde tone for you. 

Golden blondes, honey blondes and copper blondes have warm undertones. If you want a cool blonde hair colour such as ash blonde, platinum or champagne blonde, we will add some cool tones (think blues and violet or purple tones). 

You may also have heard about neutral tones – which is somewhere inbetween cool and warm blondes.  Neutral tones support your base colour rather than adding, say, a golden glow or removing brassy tones. 


Looking After Blonde Hair 

If you want your blonde hair colour to remain true to shade for as long as possible, it really is important to invest in a specialist shampoo and conditioner for blondes. Your Fox Hair Design colourist can recommend the right hair care products for your blonde shade.  Plus, depending on how light your hair is from your natural colour, you will need to book in to have your roots touched up every 6-8 weeks.  A toner or glossing treatment can also work wonders in freshening up your colour in-between visits to your local Fox Hair Salon.
