The Everlasting Platinum

One color that’s everlasting and daring is none other than platinum blonde. It’s the lightest of all the hues with a yellow tint. Think Marilyn Monroe, Khloe Kardashian, and Gwen Stefani. If they can pull it off, so can you! You’ll bring out your skin tone, eye color, and most importantly – the fabulous shade. You’ll also love that Platinum flatters just about everyone! If your skin tone is pale, tan, or warn, you can strut the shade while making a statement wherever you go. It’s the perfect color for any season! Plus, with the dirty root style being more popular than ever, you can consider leaving yours a darker color. There’s no one way to show off your gorgeous icy locks either. If you want to wear it straight and cater to the sleek length, go for it! Should you choose to curl it or add in some waves, there’s nothing and no one stopping you, fashionista. Just pair with some red lipstick, and you’re ready to take on the town with your gals!

Au Naturale

To match your beautiful brows and original hair color, you might consider natural blonde. There are a few things to keep in mind if this is the look you’re planning to go with. First, consider your eye color. In most cases, if you have lighter eyes, your hair can be much lighter. Second, match the shade to your skin tone. The great thing is, there’s an option for every tone type! Our stylists will put in various shades and undertones to get you the ideal color that is sure to turn heads your way as soon as you step into the room. To achieve the natural look, you should go with different shades. Anyone who’s sporting a natural blonde look has a multidimensional style. This means weaving in darker and lighter colors to end up with a stunning natural look in the end. Adding in some highlights or babylights will definitely do the trick! Also, the placement of the streaks will make all the difference. You could choose to add in some face-framing babylights or scatter your highlights with lighter and darker tones all over your head for a striking overall style!

Balayage, Ombré, & Sombré

Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? Before taking the plunge and going fully blonde, you can dip your feet in with three different styles: balayage, ombré, or sombré. When you choose the balayage style, you’ll have hand-painted streaks of blonde closer to the top of your head. While your roots will be kept dark, you get to enjoy a gorgeous graduated blonde color toward the bottom. Ombré is another popular choice. As with balayage, it’s two-toned, however, the blonde would start closer to your ears. Often, with ombré, your natural or darker color is kept at the top and the ends are significantly lighter. The last option you might consider is sombré. As you may have guessed, sombré is a softer version of the ombré. This style keeps your blonde color but adds a subtle effect so you can enjoy various shades of blonde and show off each and every streak and hue. The top and bottom of your hair won’t be too much of a different shade, but rather blend seamlessly together for more dimension and texture. Additionally, it’s low-maintenance and flattering for you brunettes who want a small change but still want to stick to your original color!
