Blonde Hair Color Tips directly from a Blonding Specialist

 

If you’re looking for help on keeping your blonde fresh with quality products and hair color on the market. Stop! You’ve come to the right place. I’m super passionate about my blonde hair color and the upkeep of maintaining integrity every step of the way. I make sure my blonde clients have healthy and shiny hair from the time they leave my salon to the time they come back in for a follow up appointment. Blondes are my specialty. I create an array of beautiful blonde hair color every single day and I just so happen to be blonde. I’ve taken my time covering all the bases to help you. From the start of your lightning process to choosing the ideal products without breaking the bank.

Before we get started, let me share with you my lessons learned. Sometimes, it takes multiple times and by multiple, I mean maybe 10 times, to perfect a blonde. Years of experience of my own mess ups and triumphs nailing it at home. I’m here to save you time and money. As you already know, patience is key. Keeping the integrity of your hair is my personal obligation. I’m sorry but waaaayyyy over processed blondes don’t look pretty. I’m here to make your blonde hair goals a reality!

First things first. Let’s ask ourselves, “What is my inspiration?” Blonde hair can have various tonalities. White, yellow, ashy, red, orange, or rose gold to name a few. It’s all about your desired goal. Do you want to enhance or counteract the underlying tone? We have every color to perfect those tones. I’m just here to help you choose the ideal formula for you. Knowing what your natural starting level will help a great deal.

 

 

For example: If you’re a natural level 6 and your desired level is a 10, you know that you want to lift 4 levels.

 

 

AGEbeautiful Crème Lightener

Evenly lifts up to 8 levels for maximum lightening in one step. Formulated with a conditioning complex that has silk protein to provide extra conditioning. So gentle on your hair. I just love it! Two sizes to choose from: 2oz. and 6oz.

On scalp, use 10 or 20 volume and for off scalp applications, use 10, 20, 30 or 40 volume. 20 Volume (6%) lifts up to 4-6 levels (check your starting point) for up to 60 minutes. 40 Volume (12%) lifts up to 8 levels (check your starting point) for up to 60-minutes. Check your hair every 10 minutes, looking for desired level and making sure your hair is strong enough to withstand further lightening.

 

 

Ultra Bond Powder Lightener+

How to: (1:2): Mix 1 scoop of Ultra Bond Powder Lightener+ with 2oz. Ultra Bond 20 Volume Developer. Process up to 60 minutes. However, don’t forget to check every 10 minutes until you achieve the desired lift and make sure the hair is strong enough to withstand more lifting.

AGEbeautiful Topcoat Toners

What is it and how does it work?! After you use one of our fabulous AGEbeautiful lighteners, I recommend using our Topcoat Toners to help neutralize any unwanted tones or just enhance the shine of your blonde. Silver Ash Blonde helps counteract any orange with ashy blue pigments. Pearl Blonde counteracts any yellow with neutral iridescent pigments. Mixing ratio 1:1 Can be used with 10 or 20 volume depending on how much deposit you’re looking to achieve.

 

 

Ultra Bond Daily Maintenance

We’re rockin ‘and rollin. Now…. for the easy part. Maintaining an optimal blonde with our fabulous products. How do I even decide?! They’re all so great. However, this is what I use on my own blonde hair at home. I highly recommend following through with the Ultra Bond No.1 Cleanse and Ultra Bond No.2 Condition and giving your hair an Ultra Bond No.2+ Deep Treatment once a week. They all work hand-in-hand and will help maintain the hair’s integrity giving you incredible youthful shine without weighing your hair down! I remember using this combo for the first time. I couldn’t believe after one shampoo what a difference it made!
