There is something about summer that makes women want to go blonde. Whether you're thinking about a few subtle highlights or making a statement by going platinum there are plenty of options if you have blonde ambition. If your not already a blonde adding a few highlights around the face is a very low-maintenance way to give your hair that touch of brightness for summer. Another option, is to apply a gloss to protect your color from fading while adding dazzling shine.
If your a brunette and wanting to go lighter, caramel and light blonde highlights would look the most natural. If you go straight into platinum from brunette, you may leave the salon feeling disappointed with the results, it is better to ease into a brighter blonde. To achieve a blonde look, add in caramel highlights through out your hair to achieve a sun kissed look!
Bringing your light brown hair or natural blonde to a platinum hue will be an easy transition since your hair is already light. Once your roots start to grow in, touching it up by asking your stylist to 'break your base' and will extended the life of your highlights.
If you choose to try and achieve your own natural highlights you can use simple home remedies. Coating strands with conditioner prior to long periods outdoors will create shine and act as a sunscreen. Pull some pieces of hair out around your part and along the sides and slick the rest of it back with conditioner into a bun or ponytail. The untouched pieces will lighten in the sun more, creating natural highlights. Another tip, before going to the beach squeeze some lemon into your hair and it will also bring natural highlights.
If you're like Jennifer Aniston and have fine, medium, or olive toned skin contrasting hues of different shades of blonde make it easy for women to achieve this look.
To keep shades of blonde looking fresh between salon visits make sure to use a sheer blonde shampoo that neutralizes brassy and yellow tones, making color-treated hair appear brighter and salon-fresh.
For the love of hair,
