Platinum blonde hair has a space-age character. For many, the lightest of blonde is associated with beings not of this earth. You don’t have to be angelic to have platinum blonde hair. Such light blonde hair is rarely if ever natural. It takes hydrogen peroxide (bleach) to achieve this color. Quite often, this hair color makes women appear somewhat distant. However, there are ways to avoid this overly cool appearance. Even the lightest blonde looks warmer in combination with soft or undone hairstyles.
Clear yet soft lines are the secret behind the appealing looks of platinum blonde models and stars. A thick strand of hair is allowed to fall across the forehead and is brushed behind the ear, the long blonde hair is layered, the shoulder-length bob looks feminine with long flowing waves, or the chin-length bob is tousled after blow-drying it while pulling the hair over a round brush. There is no longer a need to conceal dark roots in platinum blonde hair. Dark roots are accepted because they seem natural.
Optimal Conditions for Going Platinum Blonde
Your hair is ash blonde. Dark blonde is the best natural color if you want to color your hair platinum blonde. It is not quite so easy to color dark brown or black hair platinum blonde.
You wear short to shoulder-length hair. Usually, regularly trimmed short hair is healthier than long hair. The coloring results are also more uniform for shorter hair.
Your hair is healthy. The coloring results are not optimal for brittle or otherwise damaged hair. Bleaching hair blonde is particularly hard on already damaged hair.
You treat your hair with kid gloves. It is crucial not to expose your hair to damaging influences before and after coloring it platinum blonde. That includes gently dabbing your hair dry instead of roughly rubbing it dry. Gently comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb and do not heat-style your hair unless unavoidable.
