Choosing Your Color Shade: Blondes

Haven't done a hair post in a long while, so I thought I'd do a color series helping you all figure out what color tone would suit you best.  First up, blondes!

Do blondes have more fun?  Maybe.  But it's all in how you flaunt your color!  Knowing whether cool or warm colors work for you, your wardrobe color choices, and your make up can make or break your hair color.

So let's start with a little quiz:

1.  When I work out my face looks:
     A.  A little flushed
     B.  My cheeks are very rosy
     C.  My face color stays the same

2.  My go to make up consists of:
     A.  Lots of nudes and beige tones
     B.  Lots of soft pinks and corals
     C.  Dark reds and burgundy

3.  The colors I wear the most are:
     A.  Neutrals like white, cream, and black
     B.  Soft pastel colors like light pink, light blue, and yellow
     C.  Bright colors like red, navy blue, and green

If you're mostly A's:

  • You would look best sporting cool or warm blonde colors.  Lucky you!  The best mix for you would be a cool base with warm low lights.  Or a warm base with cool low lights.  Pretty much any shade of blonde would match well with your skin tone and look.  Examples:

If you're mostly B's:
  • You would look best with a warm shade of blonde.  You gravitate toward warmer colors and a complimentary warm blonde shade would fit perfectly with your style.  Try a golden blonde, strawberry blonde, or even a caramel blonde!  Examples:

If you're mostly C's:
  • You would look best with a cool shade of blonde.  Anything from an icy platinum, to an ash blonde would mesh well with your look.  Cool blondes are the most difficult colors to maintain, but they can really compliment a person with your style.  Examples: 

Hope you all enjoyed.  Stay tuned for the brunette and red hair series! <3

The quiz is a great idea. It can be quite daunting to choose a hair color.

This is a wonderful post. I loved being a blonde, but it messed my hair up so badly that I don't know that I will ever go back. Platinum was a bad idea, but I can't help but add more and more blonde into my hair.

This was definitely helpful and I'm envious of all the ladies that can be super blondes!
