Whether you want a platinum blonde or golden yellow color, try it before you DIY it.

Virtual Try On Hair

Maybe it’s the “new year, new hair” itch or maybe your favorite comedian just bleached their hair and it looks fabulous — either way, if you’re looking to go blonde we get it. Blonde hair will forever be a statement and with so many ways to do the hue, it looks gorgeous on everyone. 


Finding the right blonde hair to complement your look, however, isn’t always as easy as the decision to get the stunning color. And since it requires bleaching, dyeing your hair blonde at home can also be a daunting process. So far it all sounds like bad news, huh? The great news is that there are awesome online tools that can help you go blonde fearlessly, including the L’Oréal Paris Hair Color Genius virtual try on hair tool. Keep reading to learn more about how it works and how it can help you go blonde as fearlessly as your favorite A-list celebs.


What Is the Hair Color Genius Virtual Try On Tool?

The L’Oréal Paris Hair Color Genius feature lets you compare the brand’s hair color shades via an easy-to-use virtual try on hair color tool. All you have to do is upload a photo of yourself in your current hair color or use your computer or phone camera for the live try-on option. You can play with hues in different categories, including temporary hair color spray, permanent hair dye and semi-permanent hair color, to see how the hues will look applied to your hair.


Keep in mind, if you’re going blonde, the tool doesn’t account for bleaching so some colors will not be recommended for your hue as you’ll need to strip your color first. While you may want to see a professional colorist to bleach your hair if you’re new to the process, there are at-home bleaching kits that can get the job done if you decide to DIY. Just be sure to consult with the L’Oréal Paris Hair Color Concierge for pro tips, tutorials and to engage in live one on one sessions with hair color experts before you’re wrist-deep in bleach.
