In the meantime, check out this article which answers lots of your questions about what it takes to transition to blonde.  

Will Blonde Hair Suit Me?

You can choose any blonde you desire, but the hair experts at our salons in Loughborough and Nottingham can also advise you on the perfect blonde for you. 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. 

What Are The Most Popular Blonde Hair Colours?

There are so many to choose from but the most popular right now are highlights, balayage, platinum ice white blondes, silver grey tones and golden blondes. 

Which Blonde Hair Techniques Do You Offer?

Highlights, balayage, colour glazes and toners remain popular, as do all over permanent and semi-permanent hair colour.  We offer a whole range of blonde techniques.  All you need to do is talk to your stylist about the look you want and we can then recommend the best technique to get that look. 

How Much Will It Cost To Go Blonde? 

As you can imagine, the price you pay depends on many factors such as your hair condition, length and technique or level of blondness you want to achieve.  Book in for a colour consultation where we can give you a no-obligation quote.  You can also check out our price list for all our hair colour pricing options here.

Can Brunettes Go Blonde?

Brunettes can transition to blonde but this will take time to achieve. Book in for a hair colour consultation so we can explain the process, time, colour that will be achieved and price. 

Will Going Blonde Ruin My Hair? 

Advances in hair care products mean we can protect and even strengthen your hair during the hair colouring process. At Bliss, we highly recommend OLAPLEX hair treatments – a three-step process which allows your colourist to protect your hair during the colouring process.  Your hair will become stronger and healthier… and you can use the OLAPLEX No. 3 treatment at home to maintain your regime.

We may also recommend moisture treatments like Evo The Great Hydrator Moisture Mask, Evo Fabuloso Colour Intensifying Shampoos and Conditioners, Evo Mane Attention Protein Treatments and Silver Shampoos.  

It’s also important to remember to use a heat protection spray to protect your hair when heat styling.

What’s So Great About Being Blonde?

We love all hair colours here at Bliss, but as we’re talking all about blondes, here are just a few reasons you might want to join the blonde brigade!  Blonde is somehow innocent and sexy at the same time.  Blonde is feminine but can also look a bit ‘surfer girl’. Fun pastel colours or hair chalks really show up well on blonde hair.  Blonde is a real head-turning hair colour.  Need we go on…?

Are There Any Disadvantages To Having Blonde Hair?

If you opt for an all-over new hair colour, you will need to pop into the salon to have your root regrowth touched up every six weeks or so.  Highlights are much less obvious and you can have a T-section cover-up every eight weeks or so.  Balayage is even lower maintenance and you may not need to pop into the salon for even longer.  Having said that, we reckon you’ll want to come in for a toner or glossing treatment to boost your colour – and we all love a spot of pampering at Bliss Hair, don’t we?

How Do I Stop My Blonde Hair Looking Washed Out?

You can prolong the life of your blonde hair colour by using the right hair care products. Professional colour-enhancing or colour-safe shampoos and conditioners are a must if you want to stop your blonde shade from looking washed out or brassy. 

When hair is lightened, its natural warm tones eventually become visible and can look yellow.  Using a clarifying purple shampoo has a neutralising effect which reduces those unwanted brassy tones. 

A toner is a great tool for neutralising unwanted yellow or brassy tones from blonde hair. Just like a purple or violet-toned shampoo, a toner can neutralise the brassy shades, while also adding shine to your hair.

Do You Offer Colour Correction?

We do.  If you’ve had a hair colour disaster at home book in as soon as possible for a colour correction consultation so we can assess your hair and work on a plan to get it looking healthy and a beautiful colour once again.
