Oftentimes, following the latest fashion trends don't leave us with many choices, especially when we're talking about bright blonde hair color. Many people have the misconception that blonde hair looks gorgeous on its own and doesn't really need anything. But a girl can get bored with plain blonde hair without giving it some funk once in a while.
Since you've thought about giving yourself a new look by changing the color and style, your hairstylist will be more than happy to give you hundreds of suggestions according to your skin tone, face structure, and hair texture. However, it is better if you go to a salon after doing a little bit of research on your own so that you don't get overwhelmed with information and have to make a decision on the spot.
Hence, we have few ideas that you can look into in order to make the right decision. Whether you're looking for blonde and brown highlights, lowlights, or changing the color completely or partially, we have all your doubts and questions answered below.
Hair Color Ideas to Consider
Styles to Consider
Highlights and Lowlights
If you feel that either of the hair colors can't pull off highlights or lowlights, then you are imagining things. Of course you can. If you've never had the courage to get one before, close your eyes and take the plunge. Trust me, you won't regret it.
- Brunettes: A perfect way to add highlights to brown hair is by adding blonde highlights in random places. When the sun hits these highlights, it will give them a lightened look and make your hair look brighter than usual.
- Blondes: To make your blonde hair look less brassy and richer than its original color, you need lowlights for hair. Lowlights add a thin strip of color which is darker than your original color. You can change your highlights without being too bold or drastic about it, and still get a buttery richness.
Another idea could be adding bolder than bold streaks. With brown hair, blonde streaks can look real "freaky" when they are close to one another. Hence, you would want to go for adding the streaks of color throughout your hair. If you have bangs, try a bold swatch of blonde in them (if that doesn't say bold I don't know what will). As for blonde hair, you can opt for dark brown streaks. But instead of going for thin strips, go with slightly thick ones. This will give your blonde strands a fab look.
Under Color Hair
Many of you must be familiar with under-coloring hair. For those who are unknown to the concept, what under color means is keeping the original color of your hair on top and simply adding a contrasting color underneath. To perfect the under color, simply follow the tips given below.
- Brunettes: Ask your hairstylist to use the hair dye only at the bottom layer. The blond undertone to your dark brown hair will give them more depth.
- Blondes: Same as above, ask your hairstylist to use the blonde dye only at the bottom layer. So when you flip your hair or tie a high ponytail, you'll be showing off your under color perfectly.
So, will the blondes have more fun or the brunettes steal the show? It doesn't matter what color your hair is, unless you change the style, color, and haircut from time to time, you're soon going to get tired of it. Bring flare and funk in your life with your gorgeous hair, with help of this article and the tips mentioned in it. Don't we deserve it?
