There isn’t the slightest doubt… Fashion and beauty influencers have spoken: arresting blonde hair is the best way to make a statement when bringing in the spring of 2015!
Right now it’s apparent; blondes are all the rage of the runways, red carpets, magazines and trendsetter’s social media feeds. Already in step with the trend, Aveda’s spring 2015 collection Rare Bloom focuses on beautiful golden flaxen hues with its new Enlightener™ Blonde Finish Protective Toners for customized blonde shades.
“From delicious honey ’dos to straight-up platinum, there is a blonde for everyone,” says Ian Michael Black, Aveda Global Artistic Director for Hair Color. “And while going from dark to light is incredibly fun, the route to get there can’t be taken lightly. The process requires care and consideration for the best blonde results for the individual.”
Ian Michael Black’s Tips for a Dramatic Color Change
Going blonde can be a major change, so book time with a colorist for a thorough consultation. Show them photos of the blonde you want. The colorist should assess your hair’s health; consider its colored-treated history; provide a realistic outcome of your wants with suggestions for achieving the best blonde for you; and discuss a plan for upkeep.
Consider Skin Tone
As you’re looking through images for a desired blonde shade, think about your skin tone. Rich honey and caramel blondes are flattering on darker skin tones. If going light, pale golden shades can look beautiful next to warm skin. Keep in mind that ashen shades often contrast too much against skin’s natural warmth.
Understand the Process
Bringing a brunette to blonde takes time and care, so plan accordingly for the best results. The process for Meron’s Blonde (see picture: curly hair girl), took six hours. Recognize that it’s going to be much better for your hair health and the final result to lift color at a slower pace.
Take the time leading up to your appointment to care for the hair with deep conditioning treatments so your hair is its most healthy for the service.
