Platinum blonde highlights are the whiter shade of blonde added to the hair for extra dimension. For women who want to try this hair color, here’s what stylist Brianna Evans of Pittsburg, KS has to say.

Achieving platinum blonde is an investment. It won’t be done in only one session. If you have darker hair, consider going through stages.

“Look at many shades of color from darkest to lightest and everything in between. Find the tones that you like for each stage of the lightening process. This helps you love your hair as you work your way to platinum,” says Evans.

Before getting your new color, take proper steps to ensure your hair is healthy. Evans states, “Keep your locks healthy by not coloring them at home. And use only professional haircare products, including a heat protectant.”

Continue using a heat protectant when styling, even after having your hair blonde. Heat tools can damage the hair and melt off the platinum hue.

As for maintenance, regular toning is a must every 4-6 weeks. Keep a nice icy color between visits using a purple shampoo or hair mask in moderation.

When consulting your stylist, inquire about the upkeep and the cost of each visit. “Don’t fret about asking for lower-maintenance options. These may include a rooty balayage, a smudge root, or even a money piece,” Evans adds.

Breathe new life into your tresses. Here are the photos of the trendiest platinum blonde highlights ideas to try!
