If you’re a brunette and have been flirting with the idea to dye your hair blonde, now is the time to take the chance and do it. Whether it’s all over blonde or shades of blonde with balayage or ombre styles, blonde tones are the ‘in’ hair colours at the moment and luckily for us brunettes, there are ways to master this.
Kim Kardashian is testament to the fact that brunettes CAN change their locks to blonde and totally work it! Kim Kardashian’s transformation was major given her hair was extremely dark and the seamless transition to blonde has worked perfectly. I actually prefer her hair blonde. The shorter locks also give it bounce and an overall fresh look.
Rihanna is another fine example of a brunette going blonde and killing it. Yes her dark skin does help as the blonde hair doesn’t wash her out, but keeping the dark roots keeps her overall look more natural.
Cherly Cole could look good with a paper bag on, she is that amazing, but she too has changed from being a brunette to a blonde without any hiccups. With the change of colour came the change of length for Cheryl as she opted for a long bob.
A word of advice? Talk to your hair dresser about your options and what shades, styles, and cuts suit you best. Think of your skin tone, face shape, and eye colour, as well as frequent maintenance as blonde locks need more care and treatment then brown hair. All in all, the transition from brunette to blonde is great for a brand new look and fresh start to 2014!
