How To Go From Dark Brown Platinum Blonde

Sometimes you just need to change up your hair color. If you’re bored with your dark brown strands, it’s natural to fantasize about switching it up for something dramatic like strawberry brunette or even blonde. But not just any shade of blonde — maybe your strands need a platinum blonde makeover. 

Going from super dark to super light hair is a dramatic change and requires a pretty robust process, so here’s everything you need to know about making the transition from dark brown to icy platinum blonde.

1. Decide If Platinum Blonde Is Right for You

Platinum blonde isn’t a subtle switch up if you have dark brown hair so it’s natural to wonder if you can pull this icy shade off. But, platinum isn’t as selective in who it suits as you would think — it’s almost a universally flattering shade. Since the color is so light and rare, it’s eye-catching on just about anyone. 

Editor’s tip: Try on platinum blonde hair at home with the L’Oréal Paris virtual hair color try-on tool. This tool allows you to try-on the brand’s hair color shades before taking the plunge in real life.
