If you’ve ever dyed your hair blonde, you understand the time and money that goes into the color you want to achieve. That’s why the latest hair color trend to go viral in 2022 is the “expensive blonde,” which is a shade that literally lives up to its name.
With restrictions lifting worldwide, people are ready for a fresh, new “lighter for summer” change to get them out of the isolation funk. Soft and full of dimension, expensive blonde is the exact opposite of the low-maintenance pandemic blonde that everyone has become used to. When it comes down to it, expensive blonde is a soft contrast with fewer shadows in the hair, but it’s not one set color. Instead, it’s a warmer shade full of dimension with highs and lows throughout.
If expensive blonde is a shade you are considering, it’s important to expect a good chunk of time at your favorite Boise hair salon to achieve it. While this hair color looks seamless and natural, the process can be expensive and time-consuming, hence its name. To achieve optimal results, expensive blond requires tons of fine foil highlights, and lowlights are added for maximum blending and dimension.
Getting Expensive Blonde At Your Boise Hair Salon
If you’re interested in getting the expensive blonde look, ask for foils or balayage highlights, as this is a personal preference. However, it’s important to make sure your stylist uses more than one shade of blonde and possibly lowlights to help create depth and dimension.
You should also expect long coloring sessions to achieve your final look. However, expensive blonde hair is low maintenance in-between visits to your Boise hair salon. While it may cost more upfront than a single process blonde, the color variation and technique are well worth the investment because they will grow out with less demarcation and look beautiful longer. Just plan on getting touch-ups every three to four months.
At unDONE, our stylists recommend reparative shampoos and conditioners, like Davine NOUNOU products. They are perfect for bleached, permed, or relaxed hair, gently cleansing and conditioning treated hair, giving it deep nourishment, hydration, and restoring natural softness.
A glossing treatment can also refresh your expensive blonde shade. At unDONE, we recommend coming in every 8-10 weeks for a glossing treatment to refresh highlights. Not only will it help refresh and add shine to your color but provide you with conditioned and more manageable hair.
