Will Blonde Hair Suit Me?

There are a number of gorgeous blonde shades to choose from which range from warm golden blonde hues to cool platinum blonde. It’s important you leave the salon with the colour you desire so during your consultation our experts will suggest the most suitable shades to suit your skin tone perfectly. 

For example, if you have a light skin tone, choose golden, strawberry or light blonde colours. Clients with medium skin tones might want to try honey blonde, beige blonde, and light blondes with warm tones, while dark skin tones look great with warmer, darker blondes such as caramels and golden blondes.

Can Brunettes Go Blonde?

Brunettes can transition to blonde but this can often take time to achieve and it's important to be realistic with how many salon visits it may take to achieve your dream hair colour. Darker hair colours will need to be lightened or bleached first before your colourist can apply the blonde hue of your choice.

Advances in hair care products mean we can protect and even strengthen your hair during the hair colouring process. We highly recommend Olaplex hair treatments – a hair treatment system which allows your colourist to protect your hair during the colouring process. 


Maintaining Your Blonde Hair Colour

It’s also important to remember to use the correct products at home to maintain your new blonde hair colour. Using shampoo and conditioner formulated for colour-treated hair will help to keep your hair strong and healthy. Your Gusto stylists love Olaplex No 3 and 4 and WNt London Shampoo and Conditioner because it's free of harmful sulfates and parabens.

Remember to use a heat protection spray when using heated appliances such as straightening irons and curling tongs.
