Lighter Skin – Choose golden, strawberry or light blonde colours. 

Medium Skin Tones – Try honey or golden blonde, beige blondes, and light blondes with warm tones.

Dark Skin Colours – Warmer, darker blondes work best such as caramels and golden blondes.

How Much Will It Cost To Go Blonde?

Can Brunettes Get Great Blonde Colour?

Brunettes can transition to blonde but it’s worth bearing in mind that this will take time to achieve. Book in for a hair colour consultation so we can explain the process, time, colour that will be achieved and price. 

Will Going Blonde Ruin My Hair? 

Advances in hair care products mean we can protect and even strengthen your hair during the hair colouring process. At our hairdressers we offer Protection Cheveux Complexe treatments which protect, restructure and condition the hair both inside and outside during and after chemical treatments.  We also recommend pH-Bonder, a unique treatment that improves the condition of your hair during and after a professional hair colour or lightening service.

What Are The Benefits of Having Blonde Hair?

We love all hair colours here at Mova but as we’re talking about blondes, here are just a few reasons you might want to go all blonde on us!  Blonde is innocent and sexy at the same time.  Blonde is feminine but can also be a bit ‘surfer dudette’. Fun pastel colours or hair chalks really show up well on blonde hair.  Blonde is a real head-turning hair colour.  Marilyn Monroe.  Cameron Diaz.  Brigitte Bardot.  Need we go on…?

Are There Any Negatives To Having Blonde Hair?

If you opt for an all-over new hair colour, you will need to pop into the salon to have your root regrowth touched up every eight weeks or so.  Highlights are much less obvious and you can have a T-section cover-up every eight weeks or so.  Balayage is even lower maintenance and you may not need to pop into the salon for even longer.  Having said that, we reckon you’ll want to come in for a toner or glossing treatment to boost your colour – and we all love a spot of pampering at our favourite Fox Hair Design hairdressers, don’t we?

Would You Recommend Using A Purple Shampoo?

You can prolong the life of your blonde hair colour by using the right hair care products. Professional colour-enhancing or colour-safe shampoos and conditioners are a must if you want to stop your blonde shade from looking washed out or brassy.   Showcase the beauty of grey, white or light blonde hair with a clarifying purple shampoo which has a neutralising effect to get rid of unwanted brassy tones.  When hair is lightened, its natural warm tones eventually become visible making it look a bit yellow. A deep purple shampoo can also nourish and protect the hair and give a welcome boost of shine too.

How Do I Remove Brassy Tones From My Blonde Hair?

A toner is a great tool for neutralising unwanted yellow or brassy tones from blonde hair. Just like a purple or violet-toned shampoo, a toner can neutralise the brassy shades, while also adding shine to your hair.

Do You Offer Colour Correction Services?

If you’ve had a hair colour disaster with an at-home hair dye kit, we can help correct your hair colour.  Book in as soon as possible for a hair colour correction consultation so we can assess your hair and work on a plan to get it looking healthy and a beautiful colour once again.
