WHAT EFFECT DOES BLONDE HAVE ON SKIN TONE?Many of the big beauty houses offer free skincare consultations and this is worth taking advantage of. A specialist will help you to correctly identify your exact skin tone – it’s so easy to get it wrong.
As a rule if you’re fair skinned then bright, bold blondes – even platinum shades and ash tones – are the most flattering.
For medium skin tones you should keep it a little warmer, with golden tones, anything too light will drain the complexion.
If you have dark skin, go for dark blonde tones – and again avoid going too light.
Choosing the right shades of blonde:Here's how to find the right golden, honey, or platinum shades for your complexion.Find out whether your skin is warm or cool toned – this will decide which blonde tones work best for you. To do this simply look at the veins on your wrist; if they're mostly blue and purple you have a cool undertone, if they are mostly green you have a warm undertone and if they are a mix of both you have a neutral undertone – and therefore more choice.
Generally speaking, paler, pinky skin tones suit cool, delicate blondes; think ash, beige or baby-blonde.
Darker or more yellow / golden-toned skins suit golden or honey hues; think butter, golden, caramel tones.From platinum blonde to golden highlights, creamy, buttery shades complement cooler skin tones. The lighter and cooler your skin tone is, the lighter you can go with your hair.

If you’ve got: A cool skin tone
Not everyone can go platinum blonde.It needs a cooler skin tone because it can bring out the yellowness in warmer skin tones. It also particularly suits light features – blue eyes, fairer skins and lighter natural hair colors help with regrowth.For a more natural look, celebrity hairstylist Carabott recommends a mixture of creamy highlights and golden lowlights … “that darker blonde just to break it all up and make it look natural, without going too warm.” Creamier shades tend to be higher maintenance, but in the end it comes down to your natural color.There are some girls with quite dark hair that have to get it done every four weeks. If you’re lighter it can blend better or if you’re going for a deliberate ‘roots’ look, you can push it to about eight weeks,” says Carabott.
If you’ve got: A warm skin tone
Golden strands and rich honey hues complement warmer skin tones, making this the ideal skin tone for balayaged hair. Favoured for its natural look and low maintenance, the freehand technique is a perfect way to go lighter without committing to monthly salon visits. “It’s great for mums or basically anyone who doesn’t like to go to the hairdresser too often, because it still looks great even if there’s no color on the roots,” says celebrity hairstylist Carabott. The look suits warmer skin tones – think Jennifer Aniston or Gisele – because of the richer dimensions, and foils can be added to lighten the look further.
WHAT SHADES OF BLONDE SHOULD OLDER WOMEN OPT FOR?Keep it as natural as possible – work with your grey rather than against it – anything too bold or bright will look ageing. Natural honey ‘slices’ will break up any grey, but in a natural way that will also keep your look soft.
