Going from Brown to Blonde? Here’s What You Should Know!

Changing your hair colour from brown to blonde can be quite exciting. But it is a big change that can often be quite complicated. Whenever you lighten your hair, you can cause further fragility in your hair, especially if you don’t go to a colour expert.

As professional hairdressers in St Ives, we have performed dozens of stunning brown-to-blonde transformations, and here is our advice to you!

Choose A Colour Expert

Going from brown to blonde successfully requires a true colour expert that knows what they are doing and has experience when it comes to pulling off this sometimes tricky colour transformation. Go to someone who has great reviews and a good reputation.

You May Not Get Your Dream Blonde Straight Away

The shades of blondes that will be available to you will all heavily depend on your base colour and the condition of your hair. If your hair is strong and healthy, you will be able to lighten it significantly without any problems. But if your hair is quite fragile, your hairdresser will have to be careful about how light they go. In this case, blonde highlights may be a good starting point. 

Having blonde hair may also not be suitable for very dark brunettes. Usually, only medium brown bases can achieve blonde without too much damage.  

You may need to visit your hairdresser multiple times in order to reach your dream blonde, especially if that blonde is very light. It is important not to rush the process and listen carefully to your hairdresser regarding all the steps involved. 

If you have very dry hair, you should note that going blonde will only cause your hair to become drier.

Looking After Your New Blonde Hair

Looking after blonde hair is quite a commitment. Your hairdresser will most likely give you the run-through of what it takes to look after blonde hair. You may need to visit the hairdresser every 4 to 8 weeks, and you may need to change up your hair care at home by introducing a blue or purple shampoo and perhaps conditioning more regularly.
