Nothing says luxury like gold—so why not take that idea and apply it to your hair color? Now is the perfect time to make over your mane with one of this year’s top hair color trends: golden blonde hair. This gorgeous gilt shade will be the envy of everyone as it sparkles in the sunshine all season long. Find the details on getting a golden blonde hair color below, along with tips for caring for colored hair post-dye job.
If you have dark brown hair and are trying to achieve golden blonde hair, there are a few things you’ll want to do to prepare. If you’re heading to the salon, there are certain steps you can take to ensure your new hair color comes out to your liking. First and foremost, you should bring an inspiration picture that represents exactly what you want. From there, discuss with your colorist the different methods to obtaining golden blonde hair so that you won’t be disappointed with the final result. And keep in mind that if you’re adding warm blonde highlights to your hair, you may need to prep for bleaching. The darker your base color, the more sessions it could take to achieve your desired level of golden blonde hair.
Once you’ve determined that you want golden blonde hair, it’s all about finding the right hue for you.
If you’re a blonde…starting out with fair, flaxen hair gives you a jump start on getting a golden color. Warm up your basic blonde with gilded highlights and lowlights, instead of changing your base. The multitude of shades and tones can offer you a natural look with a gorgeous glisten.
If you’re a brunette…taking tresses from dark to light is no small feat, but warm-toned blondes are easier to pull off than icier or cooler ones like platinum blonde or ashy blonde.
When it comes to coloring your hair golden blonde, it’s all about your base. If you’re starting with a dark base color, then it’s best to go see a professional since becoming a blonde will require bleaching. And the darker your base color, the more work it’ll take to achieve your desired result. If you’ve got blonde or light brown hair, you may be able to go golden blonde with an at-home hair color kit, such as the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Dark Gold Blonde.
As with all color-treated hair, it’s important to upgrade your hair care routine to help keep your hair looking and feeling its best. Not sure how to go about it? We’ve got you covered.
No more using any old shampoo and conditioner on the shelf—it’s time to pick up hair care products that are formulated for color-treated hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Conditioner. Once or twice a week, swap out the conditioner and replace it with the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shade Reviving Treatment.
It’s not just about the hair care products you use, either. Show your strands some love by turning down the dial in the shower—after all, scalding hot water can strip your hair of essential oils, leaving it feeling drier and looking duller. Rinse off in lukewarm water instead.
The multi-tonal elegance of golden blonde hair looks so pretty when paired with curly hair or waves, so spritz some of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray onto wet hair, then let your hair air dry for natural-looking, carefree waves.
