How to select the most flattering shade of Blonde for you?

Selecting the most flattering shade of blonde for yourself depends on a variety of factors, including your skin tone, eye colour, natural hair colour, and personal style. Here are some steps to help you choose the right shade of blonde:

Determine Your Skin Tone:
Cool Undertones: If you have cool undertones in your skin (your veins appear bluish-purple, and silver jewelry complements you), you’ll generally look better in cooler shades of blonde.
Warm Undertones: If you have warm undertones in your skin (your veins appear greenish, and gold jewelry complements you), you’ll typically look better in warmer shades of blonde.

Consider Your Natural Hair Colour:
If you have very dark hair, transitioning to a very light blonde might require multiple bleach sessions and maintenance, which can be damaging to your hair. Starting with a softer, honey or caramel blonde might be a better option. If you have lighter hair, you may have more flexibility in choosing blonde shades, as your hair may lift to blonde more easily.

Evaluate Your Eye Colour:
Blonde shades can make your eye color pop. Warmer blonde shades often complement brown and hazel eyes, while cooler blonde shades can enhance blue and green eyes.

The Colours:
Cool Blonde: This is a general category that includes a range of cool-toned blonde shades, from icy platinum to ash blonde. Cool blondes have a silvery or pearl-like appearance.
Warm Blonde: Warm blonde shades have golden, honey, or caramel undertones. They create a warm and sunny appearance and can be particularly flattering on individuals with warm skin tones.

Platinum Blonde: This is an extremely light, almost white shade of blonde. It typically has cool or neutral undertones and can be quite striking.

Ash Blonde: Ash blonde has cool, ashy undertones that lean towards gray or silver. It’s a popular choice for those who want a cool-toned blonde without excessive warmth.

Dirty Blonde: Dirty blonde is a natural-looking, medium blonde with subtle undertones of ash or beige. It often resembles the color of sand or wheat.


Honey Blonde: Honey blonde is a warm and rich shade with golden undertones. It resembles the color of honey and adds warmth to the complexion.

Bronde: A blend of brown and blonde, bronde features dark blonde or light brown roots that gradually transition into blonde ends. It creates a natural sun-kissed effect.

Golden Blonde: Golden blonde is a bright and sunny shade with noticeable gold undertones. It can make the hair look radiant and vibrant.


Caramel Blonde:
Caramel blonde is a warm, brownish blonde with caramel undertones. It’s a great option for those who want a more natural-looking blonde.

Champagne Blonde: Champagne blonde has pale, slightly pink undertones. It’s a delicate and sophisticated blonde shade.

Strawberry Blonde: This shade is a mix of blonde and red tones, resulting in a warm, reddish-gold hue. It’s often seen as a romantic or unique choice.
