Warm blonde hair color manifests a more vivid and golden tone. From honey to caramel to buttery and so on—this color idea gives women a wide array of blonde options! A warmer shade reflects more light. Under the sunlight, it looks even brighter. This is key to formulating the best blonde tone for your skin and eye color.
According to hair colorist Serena Loren of Fairfield, CT, “if you have an opposite shade of warm blonde, a color correction would be necessary. Go slow and steady. The main concern must always be your hair’s integrity.
The longevity of the warmth in blonde hair lies in the right products. Loren’s top recommendations are Olaplex #6 and #7. She explains, “I love #6 as it’s extremely conditioning for lighter-level blondes. It provides great heat protection and a smoother air-dry result. #7 has a UV protectant, which slows down the oxidation and smooths away any frizz when drying your hair.”
At-home maintenance is crucial, too! The common mistakes that women make? Not having a water filter for the shower head and washing hair too often. Loren advises, “I’ve seen many women with a tremendous mineral build-up. This destroys their color, and oftentimes their hair, generally.”
