Blonde is blonde right? Wrong! Many women want to be blonde, and having said this many men prefer blondes over brunettes and redheads but how can you select a shade of blonde to look natural instead of looking like you dipped your head in a bottle of bleach? (That is unless you love that shade of blonde, which is completely fine!) For most women blonde that looks brassy or “super” white just does not look with their skin tones. Don’t sweat the small stuff, you will learn how to create the appearance of a natural blonde in no time!
Can You Color Your Hair At Home?
The answer to this really depends. Not everyone can afford a day with a hairdresser, and the finances that it will cost. If you want to lighten your hair color by a shade or two, then yes, you can do this at home, but if you are seeking a dramatic look, it is best to have a professional handle this.
I’m An Older Woman, What Shade of Blonde Would Look Good on Me?
Older women should work with their grey hair rather than against it. You will want to make sure your blonde hair is as natural looking as possible. If you go bold or bright, this will actually work against you and will make you appear older than you are! If you are having a hair dresser dye your hair, ask for honey slices as they help to naturally break up any grey you may have.
Should I Dye My Eyebrows?
You may be surprised to learn that most women who dye their hair blonde ask this question because they think that they will look funny if they have dark eyebrows and blonde hair. The truth is you should NEVER dye your eyebrows. Actually dark eyebrows look great on most blondes, look at Madonna, for example. Your blonde hair and dark eyebrows will make your eyes stand out!
I’m A Redhead, Can I Be Blonde?
If you are a redhead, and you want to go blonde you should have a professional handle this. If you do this at home you have a high chance that your hair color will end up brassy looking instead of blonde. Depending upon how “red” your hair is, your hairdresser may have to add blonde highlights to your hair instead of coloring your entire hair. However, either way, you can become a blonde if you so desire!
Creating the illusion that you are a natural blonde is doable. It is up to you if you want to try to achieve this look in the privacy of your bathroom, or if you want to seek professional help, either way, enjoy being blonde!
