Ask any blonde, they really do have more fun! If you’re having FOMO but aren’t ready to go all the way blonde, here’s how you can get in on the action without being too extreme.

Think skin tone, hair texture and hair maintenance…it’s always a good idea to take a strand test before committing to any particular blonde.

Caramel blonde

If you have a darker tone, consider this blonde as it will complement your skin tone. Remember to test it first to see how your hair reacts.

Sun-kissed blonde

To accentuate your caramel skin tone, try this blonde. This shade also works well if you just want highlights.

Honey blonde

If you'd rather dip one foot in for now then you can try this shade with your natural hair colour. Dip the tips in the dye for a more funky look or go further up if you have longer hair.

Platinum blonde

This is the lightest shade of blonde so if you’re feeling fearless, then jump right in!

If you’ve recently relaxed your hair, we recommend waiting for at least two weeks before reaching for the hair dye. And if your hair is natural then go right ahead! Remember to keep your hair healthy and hydrated.
