The Quick Cheat Sheet
Choose Hair Colours that are between 6 Dark Blonde to 8 Light Blonde lightness.
Stick with Natural, Beige and Ash pigments.
Keep your Blonde low maintenance.
Dark Beige Blonde
Neutrals, Natural or Wheat Blondes, smokey Blondes to Creamy and Pearlescent hues are the enduring classic Cool Shades to focus on. The real trick, and our favourite way to style, is to stick in the range of Dark to Light Blondes, embracing a Blonde that is a Shade or 2 Darker than your Natural or usual Blonde choice to encourage a low maintenance Natural, organic Colour tone. And if your usual Blonde choice is a Platinum, it will give your Hair a well-needed break from lightening.
Light Beige Blonde
Simplicity is their superpower — these polished and pared-back Blondes bring a minimalist style to your Colour, making your eyes pop and keeping your Colour crisp, fresh and free from Warmth.
