There’s no doubt that rocking a hot, blonde hairstyle can make you feel full of joy! While we love every colour in the hairstyle book, there’s something to be said about trying blonde at least once in your life.

If you’re ready to take the plunge, make sure you’re up to speed with these important tips and tricks.

1. There are plenty of shades to choose from

There are said to be over forty shades of blonde! “Going blonde” can look drastically different from one person to the next. Here are some examples of our favourite shades:

Caramel blonde: This shade looks as delicious as it sounds! Caramel is warm-toned, creamy, tawny and rich. It’s a great way to go lighter while still having some depth and richness to your hair.

Platinum blonde: Think of this as “Barbie blonde”. Platinum is a bright, neutral tone of blonde and is a highly coveted shade around the globe.

Chestnut blonde: If you’re looking for the perfect in-between shade – this is it! Chestnut blonde could pass for a very light and yummy brunette tone or a darker and delicious blonde. It’s the best of both worlds.

Strawberry blonde: This cute tone offers reddish notes to a lighter head of hair. It is different to red hair in that it is still light and bright at heart, with lighter blonde highlights lifting the overall look.

Icy blonde: This shade looks both supernatural and super eye-catching. Icy blonde is a shade stripped of all pigments to produce a silvery-white and cool-toned colour.

When choosing the right shade of blonde, consider:

  • Your skin undertone
  • The length of your hair
  • The general colour palette of your clothes and makeup


2. There’s more than one way to introduce blonde to your hairstyle

If you’re looking to achieve lighter hair colour, there’s more than just root-to-tip colour. Consider introducing blonde shades through highlights, an ombre or dip-dye colour treatment.

It will need a bit of extra TLC

If you’re switching up your hair from a dark to a lighter shade, it will require a little extra time and care. But you’ll soon come to see that the bit of extra effort is totally worth it!

Blonde hair simply needs good nourishment to keep it healthy as well as touch-ups every six to eight weeks. Touch-ups will help cover signs of regrowth and keep your colour bright, fresh and fabulous!


4. You’re going to look and feel ah-mazing

Fast, Fun facts about blonde hair:

  • Strawberry blonde hair was invented during the Italian renaissance. During this period, women lightened their hair using lemon juice and saffron in combination with the sun’s natural rays of light.
  • Only 2 percent of people in the world are natural blondes and having blonde hair actually comes from a genetic mutation.
  • Most children born with blonde hair will turn dark. This is due to the rising levels of eumelanin, a natural pigment that regulates the darkness of hair strands.
