COOL BLONDE

If you prefer blonde hair that has pearl, ashy, gray, or icy tones, it entails a cooler tone blonde. When your skin colour has slight pinkish, bluish or rosy tones, such cool blonde hair will be the most perfect on you. If you have decided on a cool blonde colour, you may advise your stylist that you prefer your cool blonde hair color to be towards the “ash blonde” tone. This type of colour normally will take a few salon visits to reach the desire colour even if you are already blonde, as your stylist has to eradicate all warmth colour from the original hair.

In order to achieve the objective of cool blonde colour, there is always a need to perform intensive highlights to reach the colour to a high level of “10” blonde leaving no remain of any darker pigment. Thereafter the highlights are washed and rinsed, a toner is usually needed and such colour may sometimes be damaging to the hair as your natural colour is lightened as much as possible.
