Choose a Blonde Shade for Your Skin Tone

Blonde Hair Colours at Martin Phelps Hair Salon in CheltenhamOne of the most important factors to consider when choosing a new blonde hair shade is your skin tone. Your skin tone can help us to determine which shades of blonde will look best on you.

If you have fair skin with cool undertones, then ash or beige blonde shades may work best for you. On the other hand, if you have warm undertones, then caramel blonde or strawberry blonde may be a more flattering choice.

Neutral skin tones can wear both warm and cool blondes, although we think that beige blonde is an ideal neutral hair colour. 

What is Your Natural Hair Colour?

Blonde Hair Experts, Martin & Phelps Hair Salon in CheltenhamYour natural hair colour can also play a role in determining which blonde shade will work best for you, both in terms of your look and your maintenance needs.

If you have naturally darker hair, then a platinum blonde shade may take longer to achieve whilst maintaining the condition of your hair. Platinum blonde hair also requires a lot of maintenance to look fresh. In this case, you may want to opt for warmer shades of blonde such as honeyed blondes, golden blonde or caramel tones, which will blend better with your natural hair colour and require less maintenance.

Consider Your Personal Style

Blonde Hair Colour, Martin & Phelps, Hair Salon, CheltenhamWhen choosing a new blonde hair colour, it's essential to consider your individual style. Do you love turning heads with a bold look, or do you prefer a more natural hair colour?

If you want to make a statement, then a bold platinum blonde or even a pretty pastel shade may be the perfect choice for you. However, if you prefer a natural, more lived-in look, then darker golden blondes using techniques such as balayage highlights may work best for you.
