There is only one time of the year that golden blonde strands work beautifully and that is Memorial Day weekend to the middle of August. Before then, you are using pastels and cooler tones and after that you are deepening and spicing up your locks for fall. Golden hair works well for most people around this time because everyone has a touch of tan, however, gold seems to be the most hated shade by most. The simple thought of a bit of “yellow” coming into hair can have blondes running for the purple shampoo. So how can you rock this? Click the notes. –– Kelly Rowe
It’s all about the shine.
Without shine, gold is plain yellow, that’s what scares a lot of ladies from heading to these warm shades. You should have a standing appointment every 2-3 weeks for this golden time in summer to have at least a clear glaze applied to get the mirror like quality back.
Solid toned golden blondes look drab and fake. You need to have that beachy quality in it by adding varying levels of the tone. Tossing in a few foiled highlights around your face and on your part will instantly add a bit of pop and ties the whole look together.
The summer is no time to try to have perfect strands. Allowing you hair to move and be less than perfect will allow light to pass through the sections creating highs and lows of shadows making the hair look thicker.
