Beige blondes have more fun — that’s how the saying goes, right? One of our favorite hair color trends, beige blonde hair, has been dominating our social media feeds. There’s just something about this dimensional blonde hue that’s flattering on pretty much anyone.
If you’re considering switching up your mane, allow us to suggest giving a beige blonde hair color a try. Below, we’ll share just what beige blonde hair is and why this blonde shade is the perfect choice.
What is Beige Blonde Hair?
We love beige blonde hair because it reminds us of sand on the beach during a hot summer day. The color blends both warm and cool shades with an overall ashy undertone. Light and dark blonde hues create dimension, making the color customizable and, in turn, flattering on nearly anyone.
How to Get Beige Blonde Hair
Want to give a beige blonde hair color a try for yourself? Keep in mind that if you’re starting with a dark base, you’ll need to use bleach to lighten your strands in order to achieve a beautiful beige blonde hue. The darker your hair, the more sessions it’ll likely take for you to get the beige blonde mane of your dreams.
If you have very dark hair, consider turning to a professional to guarantee the results are everything you’re envisioning, and your hair remains healthy. It’s also a good idea to head to the salon if you want your beige blonde shade to be customized to best flatter your complexion.
That being said, you can DIY beige blonde hair at home if you prefer. All you need is the right hair coloring kit to do the job. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Light Beige Blonde, which is the perfect beige blonde shade.
Tips for DIY Hair Coloring
When coloring hair at home, these are some important things to remember.
1. Make Sure Hair is Clean
You shouldn’t apply hair dye to freshly washed hair, but also not hair that’s greasy or dirty. It’s best to wash hair a day before coloring.
2. Follow the Instructions
When dying hair yourself, it is very important to explicitly follow the instructions listed in the box dye. The instructions can be different based on brand and color, so make sure to check, even if you’ve dyed your hair yourself a million times.
3. Consult a Professional If Needed
A hair dye disaster is anyone’s worst fear, so don’t be afraid to reach out to an expert whenever you feel like you need to. The L’Oréal Paris Hair Color Concierge is an online resource where you can speak to professionals live with any questions. You can also find try-on tools and tutorials to use before you get started.
How to Maintain Your Beige Hair Color
Once you have your beige blonde hair color, it’s important to take the proper steps to maintain it. Read on for a few tips you can incorporate into your beige blonde hair care routine.
1. Keep It Ashy
Like we mentioned, beige blonde hair has ashy undertones. That being said, color-treated blonde hair has a tendency to get brassy over time. To keep your mane cool-toned, add a purple shampoo and conditioner into your hair care regimen.
2. Keep It Hydrated
Since beige blonde hair calls for bleaching your strands, it’s a good idea to incorporate a little extra hydration into the mix. The L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner is a deep conditioner for color-treated hair that’ll help hydrate each strand for shinier, silky hair.
3. Keep It Shiny
Speaking of shinier hair, you certainly don’t want your beige blonde mane to appear dull and lackluster. That’s where the L’Oréal Paris Le Color Gloss One Step In-Shower Toning Gloss
comes into play. This in-shower toning hair treatment is formulated with coconut oil for deep conditioning while correcting brassiness and giving hair a shiny, fresh finish.
4. Keep It Covered
Roots? Where? Prevent grown out roots from taking a toll on your beige blonde hair by keeping a temporary root cover-up, like the L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up on hand. All you have to do is shake the can and spray the product directly onto your new growth, holding the can four to six inches away from your hair.
