7 Reasons to Go Blond ...


There are many reasons to go blond if you've been dying to try a lighter color. Now, as a born and bred brunette, I'm definitely not saying anything about whether or not blonds have more fun, but I do know that sometimes it's tempting to try either lightening your hair a little or full out going blond. If you've never wanted blond hair, no problem! But if you're interested in giving it a try, remember that there are many things to considered before choosing to go blond. I've got some great reasons and some great considerations if you're looking for some advice.

There's a Color for Everyone

There's a Color for Everyone One of the best reasons to go blond if you've been wanting to but haven't yet dared, it is that there most likely is a color for you. Some people – both women and men – hesitate before lightening their hair because they're afraid it won't go with their coloring. It also has to be said that some color profiles don't go with blond, but generally, you'll find a flattering hue somewhere between strawberry blond and platinum. It might be reddish blond, golden, or like cornsilk, but remember, there are a lot of variations within the blond spectrum. Talk to a professional so you can see some examples and get a knowledgeable opinion.


Lots of Versatility

Lots of Versatility Another great reason to go blond is the versatility of doing so. You can easily lighten your hair in a variety of ways. If you don't want an all over color, think about highlights instead. They offer all the brightness and warmth of blond hair but in contained spaces. You even have a choice there, by going with thin highlights or chunky ones, randomly spaced or in matching intervals. Highlight just your top layer, the strands framing your face, or all over – and under. You can even go with frosted tips if you'd rather.


A Bright, Sunny Style

A Bright, Sunny Style Again, while I really can't comment on whether or not blonds have more fun than girls with black, brown, or red hair, I do know that blond hair is sunny and bright. If you want to add a little dazzle to your look, this is definitely one way to do it. Again, highlights give you just as much brightness, if you don't want to go totally blond, so you can pick and choose.


A New You

A New You Honestly, one of the best reasons to go blond is true of any other hair color or style. When you change the way you look, whether you're trying a new color or using new makeup. A drastic change, if you like it, makes you feel like a whole new person. If you feel like it flatters you, then work it. It takes bravery to make a change, and lots of confidence, so embrace yourself for your courage!


Cover Your Grey

Cover Your Grey Going blond also helps cover grey hair. Now, let me preface this by saying that many women don't want to cover their grey, and to that I say, good for you! But for those who do, you should definitely consider blond. Again, it can be highlights or all over color. Either way, the silver mixes well with the gold, so you won't even have to touch up that often. And no, you definitely don't have to go ash blond, unless that's the shade you like best.


Banish Oily Hair

Banish Oily Hair If you have really oily hair and can't seem to get rid of it, then dyeing your hair blond or highlighting it can help you get rid of a lot of the excess oil. If you take care of your hair and get the color done by a professional, you can do more to make sure that you aren't drying it by causing damage. Granted, the bleaching process may have a lot to do with it, but as long as it doesn't get unhealthy, your hair should be fine.


The Ombre Trend

The Ombre Trend There are trendy reasons to go blond as well, such as getting the ombre effect. It's actually a great way to ultimately stop coloring your hair if you want to, at least when you naturally have darker hair. Your roots are much, much less noticeable, sometimes even undetectable, when the lower parts of the strand are blond. You get a steady, smooth gradation to blond, so it's also a subtler way of trying the color.

As you can see, there are plenty of great reasons to go blond when you want to try a new color. Remember, you should always consider whether or not it will really go with your coloring, but you can also see if there are any alternatives, in terms of darker or warmer shades. Are you thinking about going blond, or do you prefer darker hair colors?
