5 tips for Blonde Hair on Brown Skin
Many people think that when you have a deeper and warmer skin tone, it’s almost impossible to pull off blonde hair. Anyone, and I mean ANYONE, can pull off these golden locks. There are just a few things to keep in mind if you’re deciding to go blonde. Here are my 5 tips for blonde hair on brown skin.
Tip number 1: Take Multiple Sessions
This is my biggest tip for having blonde hair on brown skin, especially if you’re starting off with dark hair. Bleaching your hair is already extremely damaging to your hair. It’s very important to note that in order to make a drastic change in your hair color, you’ll need to make multiple trips to the salon. With that being said, you should also make sure your hair isn’t already damaged, to begin with. Bleaching your hair can literally fry it off, and with multiple sessions, you’re not going to want that. Keep your hair conditioned and trim it every 3 months to keep it looking healthy.

Tip number 2: Figure Out Your Skin Tone.
This is going to help determine what tone of blonde will look good on you. When I first got my hair done I went a little more on the cool side, and let’s just say it did not flatter me as much. Since I have a warmer skin tone, warm-toned blondes in my hair looked better on my skintone. Pro tip: You can tell what skin tone you are based on the color of the veins on your wrist. The greener they look, the warmer you are. The more blue they look, the cooler you are.

Tip number 3: Keep Some of Your Dark Roots!
This is a personal opinion, but I think if you do more highlights and a balayage, it’ll prevent your hair from washing you out. It will also be more forgiving when your hair starts to grow out and save you time and money in between sessions.
Tip number 4: Have Multidimensional Color.
Instead of having just one tone blonde, have a several. Along with keeping your darker roots, have some areas that are a bit lighter to highlight, and some blond pieces a bit darker. This will add more dimension and life into your hair.
Tip number 5: Do NOT Bleach Hair If You’ve Used Henna!
My hairdresser told me that the properties in henna mixed with the properties in bleach are not a good combination. Your hair can start breaking and falling off even more. Bleach is already damaging, so you do not want to make things worse if you already have henna in your hair.
