Choosing the best shade of blonde for your skin tone

Do blondes really have more fun? Now might just be the perfect time for you to find out! Thanks to “It Girls” like Taylor Swift, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne, blonde has become one of the hottest hair trends of 2015. Even Kim Kardashian-West crossed over to the blonde side earlier this year – proving that blonde hair can be a hit with any complexion.

But the benefits of being blonde aren’t exclusively for the rich and famous. With Renew’s wide range of blonde hair colour options, going blonde in the comfort of your own home is easy, affordable and effective. The only thing left to worry about is ensuring you select the best shade of blonde for your complexion. While this may seem daunting, it doesn’t have to be!
We’ve put together some simple steps to help you become the best blonde you can be.

Determine your skin tone. The best shade of blonde for you depends on the underlying tones of your skin. Are you cool or warm toned? One way of determining this is by looking at the veins on the inside of your arm. If your veins appear blue, your skin is cool toned. If they appear green, your skin is warm toned. Warm toned people are also known to tan easily, while cooler toned people tend to burn easier than they tan. While gold jewellery looks better on warm toned skin, silver jewellery looks best on cooler toned skin.

Determine the best colour options for you based on your skin tone. Warm toned skin is best complimented by hair colours which have names that include words like warm, golden, honey, caramel, copper or butter. People with cool toned skin, on the other hand, should opt for blonde hair colour with a neutral or blue base. These colours’ names usually include words like ash, ice or beige.

Stay within two shades. Regardless of what your skin tone might be, limit your colour change to two or three shades lighter or darker than your existing colour. This is the best way to ensure a natural-looking end result.

And there you go! Now that the tough part is over, you’re ready to start with the fun stuff. Check out our extensive range of blonde hair colour at a nearby Clicks, Dis-Chem, Game or other local supermarket.
