HERA’S BROWN HAIR LOOKBOOK
1. Find out whether your skin is warm or cool toned – this will decide which blonde tones work best for you. To do this simply look at the veins on your wrist; if they’re mostly blue and purple you have a cool undertone, if they are mostly green you have a warm undertone and if they are a mix of both you have a neutral undertone – and therefore more choice.
2. Generally speaking, paler, pinky skin tones suit cool, delicate blondes; think ash, beige or baby-blonde.
3. Darker or more yellow / golden-toned skins suit golden or honey hues; think butter, golden, caramel tones.
4. Take into account the depth of your eye colour – how much of a contrast do you want? Soft, multi-tonal shades complement lighter eye colours, whereas deeper, richer blondes flatter a darker eye.
5. Think about maintenance – an all over platinum blonde needs regular trips to your colourist, whereas ombre is far more low maintenance. How much are you willing to commit to the upkeep?
