hair smoothing, goldsworthy's hairdressing salons, swindon, cirencester, marlboroughYou can choose whichever blonde shade you desire, but the hair experts at our salons in Swindon, Cirencester & Marlborough can also advise you on the perfect blonde hair colour for you.

For example, if you have a light skin tone, you could choose cool gold tones, strawberry or lighter blonde colours.

Clients with medium skin tones might want to try beige blonde, honey blonde, and light blondes with warmer tones, whilst dark skin tones look fantastic with warmer, darker blondes such as caramel blondes and deep golden blondes. 


What Are The Most Popular Blonde Hair Colours?

blonde hair colour, top hair salons in Swindon, Cirencester and MarlboroughThere are so many to choose from but the most popular right now are platinum ice white blondes, silver grey tones and golden blondes. 

The more blonde your hair colour, the higher maintenance your look will be.  This is because you need to ensure regular root touch-ups and use the right hair products to keep your blonde looking its best.

If you are looking for a lower maintenance blonde, how about balayage?  Balayage is a popular hair colouring technique for blonde hair colours as it can look more natural, with roots “stretched” out and the hair getting gradually lighter towards the ends.


Which Blonde Hair Colouring Techniques Do You Offer?

Are There Any Disadvantages To Having Blonde Hair?

hair colour at the best hairdressers in swindon, marlborough and cirencesterIf you opt for an all-over new hair colour, you will need to pop into the salon regularly to have your root regrowth touched up (at least every six weeks). 

Highlights are much less obvious and you can have a T-section root cover-up every eight weeks or so.

Balayage is low maintenance, as the roots are stretched out to give a natural appearance, you may not need to pop into the salon for a few months.

Having said that, we think you’ll want to come in for a toner or glossing treatment to boost your gorgeous blonde hair colour – and we all love a bit of pampering at Goldsworthy’s Hair Salons, don’t we?

How Do I Stop My Blonde Hair Looking Brassy or Washed Out?

balayage at the best hair salons in Swindon, Cirencester, MarlboroughYou can prolong the life of your blonde hair colour by using the best professional hair care products. Professional colour-enhancing or colour-safe shampoos and conditioners are a must if you want to stop your blonde shade from looking washed out, yellow or brassy. 

When hair is lightened, its natural warm tones eventually become visible and can look an unattractive yellow colour. Using a clarifying purple or violet-toned shampoo has a neutralising effect which reduces those unwanted brassy tones. 

A toner is a great tool for neutralising unwanted yellow or brassy tones from blonde hair. Just like a purple or violet-toned shampoo, a toner can neutralise the brassy shades, while also adding shine to your hair.
