Going blonde is a big decision, it can be damaging and drying to otherwise healthy hair and requires regular maintenance at your hairdressing salon. If you are thinking about going blonde then we are here to help with some expert advice on picking shades.
Marie Uva is the Colour Ambassador for Wella Professionals and when asked which blonde shades were in for summer she said, “Cooler champagne blondes are coming back and bold, solid blondes with editorial shine are also on-trend right now. Wella Professionals have some amazing hues in their Koleston Perfect and Colour Touch lines which have just been released for summer.”
Not all shades of blonde will suit you, when choosing the right blonde for your skintone, Marie says, “Thinking about skin tone is obviously a very important step in deciding which blonde tone is right for you. People who are fair are better suited to cooler blondes, while warm, creamy and golden blondes look great on olive toned people…”
“People with dark skin tones should stick to warmer blondes and to honey blondes and caramels. Wella Professional’s Campari collection flaunts four gorgeous new shades of blonde, incorporated with 3D Colour Techniques to create a service that achieves a variety of tones, for either a blonde transformation or enhancement, so there’s a blonde to suit every woman.”
We all look to celebrities for hair inspiration, traditionally for blonde there has been Jessica Simpson, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Gwen Stefani (for those a little more daring.) Marie has seen a change in trend with requests for Abby Lee and Lara Bingle’s blonde shades. Marie adds, “Abby Lee and Lara Bingle are definitely the hottest this season, Giselle used to be really popular but she’s not as big right now.”
We asked Marie whether inspiration comes from the runway to which she replied, “Yes a little, but more people in the public eye than catwalk.”
