If they have a rosy completion (pink in the cheeks) and blue or green eyes, you will want your blonde to be on the cool side. Cool in the blonde world means without warmth or minimizing any gold. You will find that platinum or ash blondes look best with this skin tone and eye color. If your client has more gold or yellow to your skin tone (sallow) and brown or hazel eyes, they can wear golden blonde well. Golden blonde does not mean brassy blonde! A beautiful golden blonde is a soft controlled blonde with just the right amount of warmth."
TIP #5: Always recommend a high performance, at home maintenance program for your client's hair. Going blonde often means some serious chemical treatments, often with numerous applications of color, highlights, toner… Hair is depleted of moisture and protein and can often be structurally damaged. A blonde's best friend is Eufora’s Beautifying Elixirs product line. This line is 100% active, meaning the chosen ingredients in this product will begin to heal the hair from the inside out. It is a standard take home product line for blondes in my salon. Pre color, advise clients use Beautifying Elixirs Damage Cure Clay Masque 2-3 weeks prior to a going blonde to ensure the hair is in optimal condition; resulting in greater hair integrity post color. Shine and condition should not be compromised for color. Using the Eufora Beautifying Elixir Clay Masque will begin a restorative process that will repair damaged, parched hair in only a few applications. Recommend your clients treat hair weekly post color to replenish protein and moisture.
