Have you been dreaming about lightening your locks? It’s especially difficult to do if you’ve been coloring your hair for some time now, but, if you’re determined, we’re going to talk you down this rabbit hole. At Salon Antoine in Fairfax, VA, we have years of experience transitioning bodacious brunettes to bombshell blondes and more, so you can trust us to guide you through this experience with the utmost transparency and customer service. It’s difficult, but let’s talk logistics!
Before you freak out and refuse to touch bleach again, when done correctly, lightening your hair can be a totally happy process for your hair — you just have to listen to your stylist and set reasonable expectations for the timeline. Speaking of time…
Time’s A Tickin’
This is the last thing people want to hear, but the fact of the matter, what any hair babe transitioning from dark to light needs to know, is that it honestly just takes time. If you have virgin hair, it won’t take as much to bring you from a dark brown to a blonde-ish tone that will satisfy your craving for light locks. If you’ve been lathering on hair color for years now, though, that tacks on time. Plan to schedule multiple appointments during the lightening process and we’ll carefully go over what colors you should expect each time you leave. The hardest part is that there’s a level of unpredictability to lifting colored hair that can’t totally be accounted for — but we will never let you leave with your hair a mess, we can promise you that!
