Maintaining blonde colour, Blonde, Accessories and Style,
As summer temperatures begin to cool down, treat your tresses to a touch-up. While some blondes may choose to go a little darker in the fall—golden blonde shades do match the dusky, lingering heat of summer—lighter, platinum shades also turn heads and stand out on cooler days and nights. No matter what end of the blonde spectrum you choose, keep strands shining this season with a few tips on how to lighten, brighten, and enhance your hue.
1. Recharge Your Colour
Bright blonde hair can get dull and dry by the end of summer. Transition into fall with flawless, salon-quality, all-over colour using Precision Foam Colour. If you're thinking about going darker, look for caramel or honey shades. Want to lighten up? Aim for a lighter, platinum blonde colour. When choosing any shade, keep your skin tone in mind—warmer skin tones pair well with shades that have a "G" for golden, while cooler skin tones may want to find a colour with "N" for neutral/natural or "A" for ash. Try using our Shade Selector to find the right blonde for you—and remember, only go one to two shades lighter or darker than your natural colour to achieve the shimmering blonde you desire.
2. Colour Care
Play up your dimensions and keep your colour noticeable with a daily boost of shine. Pair your new shade with Sheer Blonde® Highlight Activating Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner. With two separate formulas designed for both light and dark blondes, this duo will maximize your shade and tone this season.
3. Keep Roots Away
Keeping your blonde salon-fresh can be a challenge, especially when it comes to root regrowth. Keep dark roots at bay without re-colouring or taking a trip to the salon by applying Sheer Blonde® Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray at the roots. This product is heat-activated, so use heat tools as you normally would and expect to see a lighter, brighter blonde in as few as five uses.
4. Finishing Touch
Blonde hair makes a bold statement on its own, so keep makeup neutral and natural during the day to let your beauty shine through. For a night out on the town, try metallic silver or gray shadow on your lids for high impact, and a semi-gloss lip in a flattering pink or peach shade. With hair and makeup that complement each other, you'll be a standout all season long.
