Are you drawn to a carefree golden haircolor? Pick the right shade for your blonde bombshell debut with tips from an expert:
Choose Wisely “Choosing a blonde hue that’s best for you isn’t just about your eye color and skin tone,” shares Debi Dumas, celebrity colorist to Chelsea Handler, Ali Landry and Candace Cameron Bure. “The further you stray from your natural color, the more often you will need to come in for touch-ups, which can become time-consuming and costly.”
See A Pro “It is imperative to be honest with your colorist about what came before the blonde,” urges Dumas. “If you’ve put a dark permanent color on your hair, attempting to achieve a bright blonde is recipe for disaster.”
Take Care “I typically ask my clients to purchase a professional shampoo and conditioner specifically formulated for color-treated hair,” shares Dumas. “Wash your hair less often, rinse with cool water and condition! Finally, keep heat-styling to a minimum and be sure to use low heat settings on your blow-dryer, flat iron, curling iron, etc., to avoid scorching your hair.”
