Looking to go lighter and brighter, but don’t know where to start? Whether you are looking for a huge transformation or a subtle glow-up, our stylists are here for all of your blonding needs. But wait—before heading to the salon, review these key steps to ensure an easy and stress-free experience.
This bright, clear blonde looks radiant on those with cool undertones.
What’s your skin undertone?
The secret to the perfect blonde? It’s all in the skin tone. ‘Cool’ is defined by having red, blush or pink undertones. ‘Warm’ is defined by peachy, yellow or golden undertones. When in doubt, look at your veins—blue or purple veins indicate cool undertones, while green veins lean warm. If you have both, you most likely have a neutral undertone—which means more options in your color wheel!
Pre-book, pre-book, pre-book!
Let’s pencil it in! When it comes to blonding services, it’s a must to have appointments on the books ahead of time. With higher-maintenance color, consistency and planning can make all the difference. Getting ahead of unwanted grow-out keeps you loving your color between visits—and looking like your best blonde self.
Ditch the time limits.
Looking to go blonde in a hurry? Not so fast. A blonding service is one thing that you don’t want to rush. When planning to go lighter and brighter, make sure you set enough time aside during the day to achieve your dream hair. During your consultation, you and your stylist will be able to discuss an expected time frame—and if it’s a big transformation, it’s always a good idea to bring snacks.
