Have a few rays of light hit a head of beautiful dark blonde hair, and you will immediately see that its color is really a tint of brown with golden flecks for structure and sophistication. We show how to achieve this alluring hair color and how to care for dark blonde hair
There is certainly nothing dull about dark blonde hair. This is quite apparent if you give the artist in you the time to look at the intricacies of this hair color. The soft yet light warmth of this color creates an air of natural elegance and femininity. It will be hard not to give two tone hair a second look especially if the haircut allows it to move freely and streaks add visual texture to it. Dark blonde hair has a way of framing your face softly without overwhelming your face and makeup.
The natural color of your hair should be in the range between light blonde and medium brown if you want to use permanent or semi-permanent color applications to achieve the desired dark blonde color. Have a close look at your natural hair color before you decide on a cool or warm dark blonde tone.
Beware: You may have previously colored your hair blonde or added light streaks to it. These color treatments involve bleaching, which extracts the natural red pigments from hair. As a result, the dark blonde color application may not exactly provide the expected color result.
After coloring your hair dark blonde, you may add a few highlights.
Only healthy hair with a smooth intact outer cuticle layer will show the full range of its beauty and color. The pigments responsible for the hair color reside deep within the hair shaft. When cuticles cover the hair shafts in tight even layers the full beauty of the color will shine through them. This is where color protection shampoos come in. Aside from conditioning the hair, they also protect the full beauty and intensity of your hair color.
Dark blonde is a soft, naturally looking color. Using nude makeup sparingly will deepen this naturally beautiful appearance. Light complexions in combination with cool dark blonde hair look particularly beautiful with a little rose-colored blush. Warm dark blonde hair calls for bronze blush on light skin.
Styling and attitude can bring out the bolder side of wearing dark blonde hair. Makeup choices also determine whether you want to look feminine or sassy. Neutral colors work best in combination with dark blonde hair. Flashy colors simply do not look harmonious next to the soft tones of dark blonde hair.
Gold, ochre, and brown are ideal makeup colors for women wearing warm tones of dark blonde hair. Both the hair and the complexion will show a warm glow.
Cooler silvery makeup colors work well with the cooler tones of dark blonde hair.
