Brunette To Blonde: Everything You Need To Know About The Light Side

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that in the world of tan-loving beauty, discussion of going blonde comes up quite frequently. While we adore the sultry look of a golden tan on a brunette beauty, nothing says beach bunny quite like a sea of flowing blonde locks.

If you’re considering going blonde, there are a few things you should keep in mind before you book the appointment. Here’s all of our best tips on navigating the light side.

Quality Over Quickness

If we can save you from one DIY beauty mistake, let it be bleaching your hair on your own. Unlike a cruddy self-tanner application, a bad home bleach job won’t wash off in a week. Save your hair by having it done at a salon by professionals. Don’t skimp. Do it right and get the quality you deserve.

It’s Not For Everyone

While we’d love to live in a complete beauty democracy, some trends just aren’t for certain people. It’s less about specific skin tones and more about the contrast between one’s skin and hair. This is why some olive skinned ladies (think Shakira) look great with blonde hair, while others would look ridiculous (think Mila Kunis). Try photoshopping blonde hair onto a selfie to get a sense of how it would look.

Some Maintenance Required

Even if you have the world’s healthiest and most resilient hair, bleaching is always going to do a little damage. Avoid screwing your hair up too much by adding a deep conditioning mask to your weekly at-home spa ritual. Also, be sure to follow up with your stylist regularly for trims to prevent split-ends and damage. Blonde is a little work, but if you stay on top of it, you can keep your hair reasonably healthy.
