Brunette Wanting to go Blonde?

There’s a commonly held belief by women around the world that brunettes look older if they go blonde. While it can be true if the process isn’t performed properly, it’s not necessarily so.

Just be aware that going from brunette to blond is a radical difference. The following information can help make an informed decision and help individuals discover if blondes really do have more fun.

Features and Skin Tone

The most important factor when going from brunette to blond is that the color matches skin tone and features. It’s a good rule of thumb to match the shade of blond to eye color, depending on if the eyes have more warm or cool highlights. Doing so helps ensure the color will look natural and give individuals a fresh appearance.

Hair History

Individuals need to thoroughly discuss the transformation with their colorist before having it done. Anyone contemplating a change to blonde needs to be completely honest with the colorist and let them know about:

  • Expectations
  • The look to be achieved
  • Any recent processes as far back as a year
  • If color was applied at the salon or in-home
  • Any hair concerns and details, even if they seem irrelevant

Some previously applied hair colors may need to be removed first to eliminate residual effects. Otherwise, the blonde color won’t go on evenly and the process can damage hair.

Time and Money

Going blonde isn’t necessarily a one-and-done process. Individuals should be aware that it may take up to 3 salon visits to achieve the blonde shade desired. Each of those visits may require up to 3 hours. That can mean a significant investment of time and money.

Going blonde also requires additional maintenance. Bleaching weakens the hair, making it more susceptible to damage. Individuals will need to avoid chlorine that’s present in pools and keep hair trimmed. However, it’s well worth the effort to achieve the most natural looking results that preserves hair.
