The Year Of The Platinum

2018 has been a year filled with more hair trends than you can shake a brush at from platinum blondes to cream soda hair and rainbow roots. We’ve pushed the salon boundaries of what can be achieved when it comes to colouring our locks but we haven’t stopped there. With celebs and social media delivering us new colour inspiration daily, it’s no surprise that we’re spending time pinning our Pinterest boards full of beautiful bold colours and setting our hair goals even higher. 

The Next Generation of Blonde

The next generation of the platinum blondes is here and we are obsessed with the variations we’re seeing emerging. In particular is ash pearl blonde, a new wave of brilliant blonde taking the platinum trend and adding ashy, reflective tones for a more flattering hue. Ash pearl blonde is the perfect solution for those who’ve reach pure platinum and want to update the trend, ideal for autumn/winter. Expect this trend to pop up on the feeds of the coolest of the cool beauty bloggers and across the trendiest salons up and down the country.

How Do I Get Ash Pearl Blonde Hair?

To sport the ash pearl blonde trend you’ll need to lighten your hair to a clean blonde and depending on the state of your hairs colour now, you’ll need a consultation with your salon. Remember: Platinum blonde is no easy end-goal but your stylist will let you know your options. Once you’ve got your platinum halo in place, it will be a case of popping on the ash pearl tone. 

Often, a clean white platinum hair tone can wash out people’s skin tone. You need balance and warm or cool tones will complement or contrast your complexion. 

FUN TIP:  A good way to tell if an ashy blonde hair colour will suit you is by looking at your jewellery. If you suit or prefer silver jewellery more than gold, you’re more likely to suit ash blonde.


Keeping It Cool

To maintain your ash pearl blonde, you’ll need a solid haircare regime to keep yellow tones at bay and to ensure your hair is kept strong. Opt for a regime designed for colour treated hair as it will ensure your colour isn’t stripped. Combine a toning shampoo with a strengthening conditioner for a dream duo. Here are some iconic duos we suggest for ash pearl realness; 

  1. For Thick hair: Redken Blondage Shampoo + Pureology Smooth Perfection Condition = Anti-Frizzing ashy haven!
  2. For Fine Hair: Matrix So Silver Shampoo + Kerastase Elixir Beautifying Oil Mist = Silver shine on-point 


Where can I get it? Head on down to your nearest salon for a consultation, you won’t regret it!
