Blonde Hair At Any Age: Show Your True Colors
Blondes definitely have more fun—whether they’re bottle blondes or naturally sunkissed and fair. And who doesn’t want to have more fun? That’s why, no matter our age, we still head to our favorite salon and ask for highlights, lowlights, or all-over blonde hair dye. But, in order to look your absolute best as a blonde at any age, there are some beauty expert tips you should be following to a tee.
How to Find the Best Shade of Blonde In Your 30’s
Finding the best shade of blonde hair in your 30’s isn’t hard. It’s all about finding a subtle contrast. Say goodbye to the outrageous one-dimensional blonde hair dye of your 20’s. Now is the time to look into lowlights to enhance the depth and dimension of your hair.
You may consider going bronde (brunette-blonde), especially if you have warmer undertones to your skin. The warmth of bronde hair color should brighten up your complexion and give you a more youthful glow.
How to Maintain Blonde Hair In Your 40’s
As you get older, it’s harder to maintain blonde hair. All of that processing and bleach can start to make your hair look more like straw than spun gold. That said, is it impossible to regain that youthful shine and silky texture you had in your 20’s and 30’s? Absolutely not!
In order to maintain blonde hair in your 40’s, it’s important to take the time to do a weekly deep conditioning hair masque. Look for one that’s specifically made for protecting hair color.
How to Keep Blonde Hair Vibrant In Your 50’s
You may assume that you have to rely on a one-step process to cover up your grays and maintain the vibrancy of your blonde hair in your 50’s. The truth is: you don’t have to completely cover up your grays in order to have vibrant, beautiful blonde hair well into your 50’s. In fact, that all-over monotone color may actually be making you look older.
The key to natural-looking blonde hair in your 50’s is a combination of subtle root touch-ups, highlights, and lowlights. For the easiest upkeep, make sure you don’t stray too far from your natural hair color. One or two shades lighter should look most natural and flattering—and should require the least amount of work to maintain.
How to Find the Ideal Blonde Hair Color In Your 60’s
Finding the ideal blonde hair color in your 60’s isn’t rocket science. As with finding the best shade of any hair color, it starts with identifying your skin’s undertone. If you have warmer skin, you should actually stick with cooler shades, like platinum blonde to brighten up your complexion and give you a more youthful appearance overall.
If you have cooler undertones in your skin, you may want to opt for warmer blondes, such as honey, amber, and golden blonde to help make you look ten years younger. And if you have neutral undertones, then you can pull off both warm and cool tones of blonde. Lucky you!
In the end, age is just a number. When you look amazing, you feel amazing. It’s never too late to start having more fun—as a blonde, of course!
