  • it depneds on the tone of blond you have right now, and your eye color and skin tone color.

    if you have warmer skin, and a warm or brown colored eye, you'll want more of a warm low light.

    if you have warmer skin and a cooler eye shade (blues and grays), you'll want to be sure your blond base is warm, but your high lights are a cooler more platinum shade, or you have cooler low lights.

    if you have cool skin and warm eyes, you'll want a cooler based blond with some warmer high lights or low lights.
    and if you have cool skin with cooler eye shades you'll want a cooler base with cooler highlights or low lights.

    (note: green eyes are neutral so you do your base as your skin tone, and any tone of high lights ro lowlights can be considered).

    since it's the fall season, I recommend going with lowlights rather than highlights with the blond.

  • Either a lighter shade than you have or a step down shade from the color you have, unless you like red hair,,,,,,,,I wouldn't be doing the red.

  • It depends on the shade of blond. If they have pretty blue eyes with light blonde I like to encourage a few copper lowlights. Makes the blue eyes really pop! If you are a darker blond some platinum highlights with a dark brown lowlight in between jazzes up your dark blond!!

  • My sister has blonde hair and asked me the same questions i told her: I would prefer to use a lighter color of blonde if you dont want to stand out as much, if you are more wild you could use red, aborn, or even black.
