What do you get when you cross blonde and brunette? We’re not joking, there’s a name for it - it’s bronde! Why choose one when you can have both?
We’ve defeated the plague of flat hair days with the latest and greatest volumising solutions!
Transitioning from brunette to blonde can put your tresses under immense stress, as oxidation breaks the disulfide bonds that create keratin (the protein that strengthens hair). However, Matthew Collins explains that using a protective product such as Smartbond by L’Oréal Professionnel during the colouring process will make sure that the health of your strands is not compromised on your journey to blonde.
Salon tip: Stick to words that you’re comfortable with and look to the salon’s colour chart for guidance. You can point out the shades that you’re drawn to, and your colourist will advise you accordingly.
Figuring out if your skin is warm or cool will help to match you with a hue for you! To work out are if you have a cool skin tone or are warm toned. If you wear silver jewellery you are probably a cool tone or if you wear gold jewellery you are likely warm toned. Once you’ve figured this out, get some images together and decide how much maintenance you are prepared to commit to.
A warm toned skin colour will suit more honey, caramel blonde tones and a cooler tone tends to suit icy blonde, ashy hues.
The journey to blonde doesn’t end at the salon. To maintain the true shade that you walked out the salon’s doors with, it is important to use products that treat blonde hair with the care it needs.
Salon tip: Use a bespoke shampoo for blonde hair – preferably with purple tones, such as Shine Blonde Shampoo from L’Oréal Professionnel – in order to prevent that undesirable orange-tinted glow. As bleach can take its toll, also smooth on a conditioning treatment regularly, such as Kérastase’s Masque Densité – equipped to repair and restore resiliency, daily use of the lightweight gel can restore your locks back to their pre-bleach heyday.
Follow these tips and embark upon your journey to blonde the salon-recommended way. You – and your hair – will thank you later!
