How To Choose Your Blonde Hair Shade

"Will blonde hair colour look good on me?", "Can I change my brunette hair to platinum blonde?" and "How much will it cost me to go blonde?" are amongst the most common questions the experts stylists at Makeover Palace Salon regularly get asked.

We want you to feel 100% confident with your new blonde hair colour and so we would recommend booking in for a hair colour consultation prior to your appointment so you can chat with our expert stylists about any concerns you may have.

When selecting the best blonde shades and techniques for you, we will analyse your hair and advise you on what can realistically be achieved. We aim to give you a beautiful hair colour result without compromising the condition of your hair.

What Are The Different Blonde Hair Colours?

One of the biggest blonde hair colour trends recently is "lived-in blonde". Alternatively known as dirty blonde, lived-in blonde hair colour offers a low maintenance way of highlighting & blending different colours throughout the hair, allowing the hair colour to grow out naturally and without an obvious regrowth.

Looking for a light, silvery blonde hair shade? Traditional ash blonde shades look beautiful when added as highlights and can blend away unwelcome grey hairs as well as looking stunning when teamed with contrasting buttery tones and honey hues. Your Makeover Palace stylist will suggest the best colour protecting products to use at home to keep your new blonde hair colour looking fresh and vibrant and remove any unwanted yellow and brassy tones between salon visits.

If you're looking for a way to add interest to a mousy brown hair colour then adding contrasting golden blonde shades, honey hues and subtle caramel shades is a great way to add dimension to your hair colour. 

Strawberry blonde hair colours look sensational against fair skin tones, and you can add dimension to your red hair with varying copper, red and blonde shades for a stunning effect.
