Platinum hair color has been popular for decades. From Marilyn Monroe to Gwen Stefani, this iconic haircolor that has stood the test of time. However, it’s important for you to know a few things about this haircolor technique before you take the plunge. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to provide you with the following information if you’re considering a platinum blonde transformation.
Go to Your Boise Hair Salon
Platinum blonde should never be attempted at home. The reason? The amount of bleach and toning needed to achieve this look can seriously damage your tresses. Only a Boise hair salon professional can spot and minimise any potential damage. Not to mention there are quite a few steps involved before you achieve the level of blonde you’re aiming for. This can make it easy for a DIY dye job to go VERY wrong.
Get a Haircolor Consultation
Before you take the platinum plunge, talk to your Boise hair salon stylist to see if this style will work well with your skin tone, hair type, etc. It’s also important to understand that once you’ve made the change you will need to adapt your makeup colors to complete the look.
Be Prepared to Spend Time & Money
Depending on how dark your hair is and whether you’ve dyed your hair in the past, it can take multiple appointments to lighten your hair. Not to mention that each Boise hair salon appointment can take several hours so timing can vary. If this is the first time you’ve decided to go platinum blond, it’s also important to be prepared for how much it’s going to cost. Becoming a blonde bombshell doesn’t come cheap – but it will be worth it!
Damage is Inevitable
The bleach used to lighten your hair will cause some degree of damage and dry your tresses – even with the safest precautions and dyes. When this happens, you may have to cut your hair to a shorter length to protect your hair in the long run. However, your Boise hair salon stylist will work with you to limit the damage by recommending certain products and services to maintain healthy hair following your haircolor transformation.
Be Prepared for the Upkeep
In terms of your daily routine, it may take longer to condition and tame your hair. When it comes to maintaining your platinum haircolor, you can expect to visit your unDONE salon every 4-6 weeks for needed touch-ups.
Be 100% Sure
Platinum blonde is a very bold look. That’s why it’s important to talk to your Boise hair salon stylist if you are feeling uncertain about trying it. Once your hair has been dyed, you won’t be able to hide it – not to mention you won’t be able to dye it a different color until your hair has fully recovered from the process.
