Brunette Hair to Blonde Hair makeover

Have you ever felt like you are bored with your appearance? A major change to your hair colour can be a great start – it may transform the whole look and improve the way you feel about yourself.

Going brunette to blonde is probably the most demanded makeover among celebrities in 2017-2018. From Emilia Clarke’s “Mother of Dragons” platinum locks to Solange Knowles with her beautiful blonde afro – everyone is embracing the Blonde Hair obsession, and you may too. 

I think pastel tones of blonde are going to be big this summer. The tones are light and iridescent and sparkly, where the hair looks healthy and shiny and glossy

When thinking about changing your dark colour to the lighter one, it’s useful to know the levels of blonde. For instance, Bleach-it Hair Lightener can lift your colour up to 7 shades:

The “Gossip Girl” star fancied an old Hollywood glamour look, so she went for the dramatic change and dyed her hair platinum blonde. Her colourist Aura Friedman applied soft platinum shade to embrace Leyton’s olive skin tone. 

“I even left a little shadow at the roots so it wouldn’t look like such a stark contrast”

Lucy Liu has never cheated on her dark brown hair up until now when the blonde hair trend has blown her away too! The actress has bleached her hair several shades down to get the natural dark blonde look. Victoria Hunter, the stylist behind Lucy’s new look, used a lightening powder as “it treats, strengthens, and protects the hair”.

“I love doing blonde hair because it has magical powers that can change lives. It can be glamorous, intimidating, iconic, or even a little cheap and edgy”,

– says celebrity hairstylist Victoria Hunter

The queen of hair transformations Kim changed her colour for the 3rd time this year. She has switched back to her ash blonde colour to surprise her husband. “Kanye’s favourite is blonde, so I did it for our anniversary”, – she explained. Possibly, this time reality TV star wears a wig, but this stylish shade is worth trying. Kim’s colourist Chris Appleton says that Blonde stays big in 2018 and gives the advice on how to keep up with trends:

“Roots are huge and I think everyone’s going to be embracing them this summer because they add a different dimension and attitude”

Last year Emilia Clarke coloured her hair platinum blonde just like her character from Game of Thrones. Today the actress decided to refresh it with a natural sun-kissed hint which is perfect for the summer. Light blonde shades aren’t easy to maintain, but you don’t have to dye your hair multiple times. To keep the colour vibrant and fresh, use Ash Hair Toner for Over Bleach Blonde. It helps to remove the brassy yellow tones and add some shine. 

Ariana Grande went platinum a year ago, but today her look takes a new turn. As seen on the British Vogue cover, the Disney star wears Honey Blonde Hue and a nude makeup with freckles shining through.
