Kim Kardashian stepped out yesterday to make her first appearance since giving birth to baby North, and where else to make an appearance than Paris Fashion Week! But it wasn’t Kim’s skin-tight dress, or rocking post- baby figure which caught my attention… it was her stunning new blonde ‘do! Whilst most people might be thinking of going darker for autumn, Kim shows us that it doesn’t have to be the case.
Kim is normally known for her long, luxurious brown locks so she has certainly made a dramatic jump by opting for her new blonde hue. If you want to follow in Kim’s footsteps it’s vital that you get your hair coloured in a salon. As it’s such big change, it’s best to be in the hands of a professional to make sure your hair health is a top priority.
There are also hundreds of variations of blonde to choose from, one of our professional colourists will be able to help you pick the best shade to suit your skin tone. Whilst the right shade can brighten up your complexion and give your hair a whole new lease of life, the wrong shade can wash you out. So no matter if you’re after a cool, icy blonde or a rich honey tone bob into a salon to get a free colour consultation.
Kim has gone for a gradual fade into her new blonde tone. This is a great technique when going from brunette to blonde as it isn’t such a shock to you (and your hair) going for an all over colour straight away. Another great technique to go from dark to light is to opt for highlights, slices of colour or even an Ombré look. You can then add colour every few weeks to work up to a full head of blonde hair.
Once you’re rocking your new blonde locks, it’s important to remember to look after your hair. A transformation such as this can take a toll so it’s vital to keep it in tip top condition. I’d recommend using a strengthening shampoo like Kerastase Bain de Force shampoo and follow with the Kerastase Fondant Nutri-Thermique to add moisture and leave your hair looking healthy and soft.
One thing to remember when taking the plunge with a blonde colour is that it can sometimes start to look brassy and that’s a look no one wants! But how do you keep your new blonde hue looking as though you’ve just stepped out of a salon? Think about going for a colour glossing service between your appointments. Not only will this give your hair a boost it will keep also replenish your hair leaving it looking super healthy and shiny.
So there you have it, my top tips on achieving Kim’s new look! You can get the look at your local Supercuts salon with slices of colour from just £3.95 and just in time for the party season, our salons are offering the colour gloss and blow dry service from just £25.00.
