Ready to be a white-hot babe? Make sure you’re getting the best color for your skin tone and tress texture with amazing tips from color experts:

  • Watch Your Tone “If you have an olive complexion, you might want to make sure this light of a blonde is going to be suitable,” advises Douglas David of Douglas Carroll Salon. “If you have a pink or creamy complexion, it’s a go!”
  • Texture Check “I don’t find curly hair looks very good in platinum,” admits Paul Kenneth of Paul Kenneth Salon. “It’s a little bit more involved. Wavy is fine, but I think straight is the best.”
  • Coif Care “This haircolor needs to have a lot of care,” says Stefan Herz of Herz Hair Design. Makr Copeland of Hair Benders Internationalé agrees. “The major thing is upkeep. Depending on what your natural haircolor is, you are probably going to have touch up the color every two to three weeks,” says Copeland. David adds: When you come in for root touch-ups, the actual color needs to be treated, too. Even blondes need to have the color richened up or it begins to look flat.”

Kristen Bell

MM
At the top of our watch list since Veronica Mars, Kristen Bell has remained one of our favorite blondes in House Of Lies and now The Good Place and the Bad Moms movie series. 

Though she changes up the shade from deep golden tones to purely bright platinums and everything in between, Kristen is known almost as much for her blonde hair as her on-screen presence. This butter hue offers both lowlights and highlights in amber and icy hues.
