    Blonde Hair Dye Tips

    Katherine Heigl Brunette to Blonde Makeover

    Katherine Heigl Goes for a Blonde Hair Dye

    Summer is on the way out and as you reminisce about warm, sunny days, you might decide you want to keep a little of that sunshine in your hair with a blonde hair dye. It’s not for everyone, but you may even decide to dye it a funky color like purple, blue, red, etc with something like this fudge headpaint. But if you do decide to go with blonde, you’ll be following in the footsteps of Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl, who went brunette earlier this year, but has recently had a blonde hair dye and returned to her signature light blonde bob.“Blonde Hair Dye Protection Tips”

    Blonde Hair Dye Tip #1 — Look after your hair in advance

    Whether you choose to go to a hair salon for your blonde hair dye or brave the hair dyeing process on your own, you will always achieve the best results if your hair is in good condition before you subject your hair to blonde hair dye. Investing in top quality, moisturizing hair care products, such as those by Kerastase, is one way to ensure your hair stays shiny and healthy before and after the blonde dye process.

    Blonde Hair Dye Tip #2 — Be aware of the effects of bleach in blonde hair dye

    If you are going three or more shades lighter than your natural hair color, it is likely you will be using bleach in the blonde hair dye process. Bleach will have the effect of stripping out moisture from the hair and can leave it dry and brittle. This is another reason to prepare yourself in advance with professional blonde hair shampoo and conditioners such as the Aveda hair products designed for blonde hair dye, which will preserve a strong, healthy and glowing lustre, even after using a strong blonde hair dye bleach. It might be a good idea instead to go for a natural hair dye. My friend has had good results without bleaching.

    Blonde Hair Dye Tip #3 — Get your hair professionally dyed

    If you want to avoid blonde hair dye horror stories such as hair turning orange, green or even falling out, a professional dye job at a hair salon is the best way to go, and you may be advised that high lights will give you a more natural and long-lasting. If you do choose to save your pennies and do a blonde hair dye at home, be sure to get advice from your hairdresser beforehand on the safest ways to do so without causing permanent damage.

    Blonde Hair Dye for Stunning Results!

    Blonde Hair Dye

    Multi-tones of blonde hair dye create spectacular colour!

    The Industries top hair colourists use multiple hues of blonde hair dye to create the beautiful blondes that are so ‘hot’ today, and one of my favorite hair colourist is Lisa Shepherd!

    “The Latest in
    Blonde Hair Dyes”
    Lisa Shepherd, also referred to as the ‘hair doctor” in the United Kingdom, just released her new collection, “Dust.” When I first saw it in American Salon I thought seriously about changing my brunette locks to blonde! The collection is enchanting, using various combinations of blonde hair dye, product and styling techniques to create an assortment of textures to the hair.

    For styling the above model Lisa used a straightening iron to create haphazard waves and finished by spraying a bit of white dry shampoo through roots and mid shaft for a ‘worn in’ look.

    In the above picture, Lisa used just the right hues of blonde hair dyes to compliment the models pale skin tone . . . wouldn’t you agree? I know if you love this colour, you’re thinking you should be able to buy it in a box, or even ask for it by name in the hair salon, right? Not really. A blonde hair dye called ‘buttercreme’ for the above hair colour, won’t be found on the shelf. That’s because it’s not one colour but a few colours that create the look.

    About the “Dust” collection Lisa says, “I wanted to achieve slightly shiny, blonde-hued looks that have an almost ‘gritty,’ powdered-out, tactile surface and feature abundant volume.”

    “Blonde is one of our kindest hair colour shades and most often some kind of lightening will make you look younger! However it is the hardest to ever get to shine, so it’s all in the tones that are used. Never have just the one shade of high lights or else it will look dull and flat. Having several shades of blonde including one darker shade very near your own will make your blonde look natural and lively. One great trick is to add an iridescent gold, this will always glimmer.”

    If you see a hair colour you fall in love with bring a picture in to a professional to discuss if it is right for you. Your best bet for finding a great colourist is to get a referral. Ask someone whose hair colour looks spectacular!
