Going Blonde

How To Achieve The Perfect Blonde Hair Colour At Beach Hair Salon In Hove, Brighton

Achieving the perfect blonde hair colour requires skill and experience, which is why it's best left to our hair colour and bleaching specialists at Beach Hair Salon in Hove. 

With a multitude of different blonde hair colours to choose from, we can help you find the right shade to light up your complexion, complement your hairstyle and fit in with your lifestyle.  We offer hair colour consultations where we can discuss the look you fancy, assess your hair and come up with a plan to get your hair looking exactly as you want it.

Of course, we understand you may have lots of questions regarding going from brunette to blonde, or deciding whether to go for blonde highlights or balayage, or wondering whether you'd suit a platinum blonde.  On this page, we've tried to address some of your questions... but your best bet is to give us a call on 01273 734171 to book in for a free consultation.

Will Blonde Hair Suit Me?

Our hair experts in Hove can advise you on the perfect blonde for you. If you've seen a colour you like, make sure you show the image to your stylist so we can tailor the colour to you.  As a guide, however, we would say that people with a light skin tone should choose golden or light blonde shades.  Those with medium skin tones should try honey or beige blonde or a light blonde with warm tones (for warm tones, think golden and reddish shades).  If you have a dark or olive skin colour, try a darker caramel or golden blonde.  

What Are The Most Popular Blonde Hair Colours?

That is not an easy question to answer!  There are many blonde shades and the best one is the blonde that suits you!  Having said that, golden and honey blondes remain popular, white blonde is also big - particularly amongst our younger clients - and perhaps the most asked-for techniques are blonde balayage and blonde highlights. 

What Blonde Hair Techniques Do You Offer?

Bleach blonde, highlights, balayage, ombre, colour melts, all over hair colouring and colour toners are just a few of the blonde hair techniques available at Beach Hair Salon in Hove.  Talk to your stylist about the colour you desire so we can work out the best technique to help you get your chosen look. 

How Much Will It Cost To Go Blonde? 

As you can imagine, the cost of going blonde depends on various factors including your starting colour, hair condition, hair length and the level of difficulty required in achieving the look you desire.Book in for a free hair colour consultation at Beach Hair Salon in Hove and we will give you a no-obligation quote.  You can also check out our Beach Hair Price List here.

Can Brunettes Go Blonde?

We can transition brunettes to blondes but this can be a lengthy process.  Let us explain it all to you, including the time it will take, the colour you can expect, and how much it will cost - simply book in for a free consultation.

Will Going Blonde Ruin My Hair? 

We can now protect and strengthen your hair during the hair colouring process at our Hove hairdressing salon.  

WELLAPLEX with Opti pH System is designed to protect your hair during a hair colouring or lightening service - but can also be used as a stand-alone treatment.  After just one treatment, your hair will feel stronger, shinier and with vibrant colour.  Consisting of three steps, this revolutionary hair treatment helps to reconstruct the inner hair bonds to give you stronger hair:

No1 Bond Maker is a professional in-salon product that helps to reconstruct the bonds within the hair
No2 Bond Stabilizer is used after your hair colour service to re-balance the hair's pH and strengthen the hair structure
No3 Hair Stabilizer is a take-home product which helps keep the hair strong, smooth and soft until your next WELLAPLEX treatment.

Are There Any Reasons I Should Not Have Blonde Hair?

Do blondes have more fun?  You'll never find out if you don't try it!  At Beach Hairdressers in Hove, we will only colour your hair if we feel we can achieve great results which do not ruin the health of your locks.  Once we've achieved your favourite blonde hair colour, you will probably need to visit our salon every eight weeks or so for a root touch up.  Balayage blondes are much more low maintenance so you can stretch the time between visits. With highlights you might want to just go ahead with a T-section cover-up every eight weeks or so.  

Does Purple Shampoo Work On Blonde Hair?

You can prolong the vibrancy of blonde hair colour by using a professional colour-enhancing shampoo and conditioner.  Very often these are purple-toned because purple has a neutralising effect which gets rid of unwanted brassy colours.  A professional blonde shampoo can also nourish and protect your hair colour, leaving it glossy and shiny.  Gorgeous! 

Do You Offer Hair Colour Correction?

Help is at hand if you have coloured your hair at home and it's gone wrong.  We offer hair colour correction services at our Hove hair salon.  Call us as soon as possible so we can get your hair looking fabulous once more.
