Why We’re Head Over Heels for Platinum Blonde Hair


Why We’re Head Over Heels for Platinum Blonde Hair

From the red carpet to the cereal aisle, there’s nowhere that platinum blonde hair doesn’t look absolutely glamorous. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, and it doesn’t even matter what your skin’s undertones are, an icy cold dose of platinum blonde will find a way to brighten up your look. We are totally head over heels in love with platinum blonde hair, and we’re excited to share just why we think this shade is one of the coolest hair colors of all time.

Platinum Blonde Hair Flatters Just About Everyone

While it might take some major processing (and more than one salon visit, at least) to get your hair up to that optimal shade of platinum blonde, once you reach that stage, the bright white hue flatters just about every skin tone. Whether you’ve got warm, tan skin or pale porcelain undertones, platinum blonde hair is guaranteed to make your skin glow and your features pop.

Try pairing your fresh platinum blonde locks with a vibrant red lip for maximum glamorous effect. You can’t go wrong with such a classic splash of color.

Platinum Blonde is Glam and Rock ‘N’ Roll in One

If you think platinum blonde hair won’t gel with your style, you’re totally wrong. From 90’s grunge to A-list celebrity chic, there’s literally no style that isn’t enhanced by having cool blonde tresses. To ramp up that rock ‘n’ roll feel, simply leave the roots darker and opt for a messy shag cut.

If you’re wanting to play up the timeless glam factor, give polished bombshell movie star waves a try.

Either way, you can’t go wrong with platinum blonde. It’s the perfect style accessory for just about any look you’d want to try out.

It’s Easier Than Ever to Maintain Blonde Hair

One of the biggest complaints about platinum blonde hair is that it’s hard to maintain, and it turns brassy or an awful shade of yellow more easily than any other shade of hair color. Fortunately, there’s a solution to the problem of brassy blondes.

Violet shampoo does an amazing job of cutting out any yellow or brassy tones that platinum blonde hair is so susceptible to.

Does violet shampoo turn blonde hair purple? It’s easy to make that leap, but luckily, it’s not the case. Violet shampoo works as an at-home toner to keep platinum blonde—as well as other shades of blonde—as true and bright as the day you stepped out of the salon.

The purple works to counteract those yucky tones without depositing any purplish hues. You only need to use it once a week for it to be totally effective, and when you pair it with an ultra-moisturizing conditioner or keratin treatment, you can keep your platinum blonde hair shiny, healthy, bright, and beautiful.

We’re not at all ashamed to admit that we’re addicted to platinum blonde hair, and when it’s done properly and maintained, it can truly be the ultimate fashion statement. Try it for yourself and see just how much fun it can be to go platinum!
