Q1: Can you tell us about the latest trends in blonding? What are some popular techniques or styles that clients are requesting?

When it comes to the latest trends in blonding, one standout style that has been making waves is the honey/beige blonde look. This particular shade of blonde offers a warm and natural appearance, reminiscent of golden honey or soft beige tones. The honey/beige blonde trend has gained popularity due to its ability to deliver a natural and sun-kissed appearance. Clients are seeking this style to achieve a radiant and fresh look that exudes warmth and sophistication. By embracing the honey/beige blonde trend and incorporating the vibrant money piece, individuals can enjoy a hairstyle that not only enhances their features but also reflects the latest trends in blonding.

Q2: What are the key factors to consider when choosing a blonding product? Are there specific ingredients or formulations that you recommend for achieving desired results?

When it comes to choosing a blonding product, I always lean towards an oil-based product. My go-to is bassu oil. When lightening hair, it’s crucial to ensure it receives ample moisture. Applying oil, especially to the mid-ends, is an easy way to achieve this. Using oil will not only give your hair a shiny look but also prevent dry ends. Here’s a fun fact about bassu oil: it can also be used on the skin as a lotion base.

Q3: How do you determine the right shade of blonde for a client? What factors, such as skin tone and hair type, should be taken into account during the consultation process?

A3: Determining the right shade of blonde for a client involves considering various factors, including their skin tone and hair type. During the consultation process, we carefully analyze the client’s skin undertones to identify whether they lean towards warm or cool tones. This information helps us determine the ideal shade of blonde that will complement their complexion. Additionally, we take into account the client’s natural hair color and type to ensure a seamless and harmonious transition to blonde. Each client is unique, and by considering these factors, we can create a customized blonde shade that enhances their natural beauty.

Q4: What are some common challenges or concerns clients may face when going blonde, and how do you address them? Are there any precautions or aftercare tips you provide to ensure the longevity and health of the color?

Sometimes, achieving our ideal bright blonde can’t happen overnight. The process of going lighter can be intensive, depending on the starting canvas and end goal. We address this by having open and honest conversations with our clients about their current product usage and hair history. This allows us to create a tailored game plan that aligns with their hair goals while prioritizing hair health.

The journey to a perfect blonde may take one or several appointments, depending on the desired outcome. We also emphasize the importance of aftercare and provide recommendations for take-home products. Establishing a haircare regimen that includes specific shampoos, conditioners, leave-ins, and oils is crucial for maintaining the longevity and health of the color. Regular haircuts and treatments are encouraged between appointments to add back proteins and moisture, promoting hair growth and overall hair health. We remind our clients that achieving great hair takes time, commitment, and the right aftercare routine.


Q5: With so many blonding products available in the market, what advice do you have for clients who are overwhelmed by the options? How can they make an informed decision when choosing a product to achieve their desired blonde look?

  1. Protect your hair from sun exposure by wearing a hat or using UV protection such as R and CO’s SUN CATCHER  
  1. Consider using purple shampoo or toning products once a week. These help to neutralize any unwanted brassy tones and keep your blonde color vibrant. 
  1. Use a clarifier such as Paul Mitchell’s shampoo 3 followed by a deep conditioner such as Tea tree Lavender Mint Hydrating Mask once a week a day or so before you use your purple shampoo and conditioner.  
  1. Minimize heat styling as much as possible, as excessive heat can cause damage and fade the color. If you must use heat, apply a heat protectant spray beforehand such as hot of the press by Paul Mitchell
