Picking the right shade of blonde for you

So you want to make a change. Perhaps you're working towards blonde, or you are blonde but you're vibing a change.
Are you aware of just how many different avenues blonde can take you down? You've got your Barbie blonde, ashy blonde, icy blonde, platinum blonde... To name a few!
Yet picking the RIGHT kind of blonde for you can be challenging, yet important.
Either way, there's no time like the present to get intel on the right kind of blonde for your complexion.
Let's dive in.
A few things you need to know first.
Have you got warm or cool skin?
Working this out is the first step.
If you've got cool skin, cool blonde will be more suited. Warm skin = warm blonde.
A quick way of determining your skin "temperature" - look at the veins in your wrist.
Blue and purple means you have a cooler undertone.
Mostly green means you have a warmer undertone.
A mix of both? Lucky you! You've got a neutral undertone, which means you have more choice!
If your natural complexion is pale and more pink (you burn in the sun easily), you'll be best to opt for "delicate" blonde - baby blonde or ashy will be your bag.
Looking after ashy blonde hair: you're definitely going to want to get your hands on a purple shampoo and conditioner duo. Redken's Color Extend Blondage is a great place to start.
If you have a more olive, darker complexion, think honey hues - caramel and the like.
Looking after warm blonde hair: Keep your colour rich with Schwarzkopf BlondMe Tone Enhancing Bonding Mask Warm Blondes.
