No sooner has Cheryl Cole dropped the bomb she will return to X Factor this year, than she explodes back onto the style scene with her new blonde locks.
The dramatic change from brunette to blonde is a real head-turner and Bradley Byrnes, stylist for Supercuts artistic team The Edge, tells us how to get the look:
“Cheryl’s hair looks fabulous. The dramatic change in colour has caught everyone’s attention for all the right reasons and blonde is the perfect shade as the sun makes its first appearance of the year.
“If you want to follow in Cheryl’s footsteps going from brunette or black to blonde, it’s really important to get your hair coloured in salon. As it’s such big change, it’s best to be in the hands of professionals to make sure your hair health is a top priority.
“A professional colourist will also be able to help you pick the best shade to suit your skin tone. There are hundreds of variations of blonde hairstyles from icy white to a deep honey tones and while the right shade can brighten up your complexion bring life to your hair, the wrong shade can wash you out so take the time to have a full consultation with your stylist first.
“Cheryl has gone for a gradual fade into blonde, which is a great choice when going from dark to light as it isn’t such a shock as going for an all over colour straight away. Another great way to introduce blonde into darker hair could be highlights or slices of colour and gradually adding more colour every few weeks to work up to a full head of blonde.
“Once you’ve taken the plunge and got your beautiful blonde locks it’s important to look after your hair to keep the shade in top condition. Use a strengthening shampoo like Kerastase Bain de Force shampoo and follow with the Kerastase Fondant Nutri-Thermique to add moisture and leave hair looking healthy and soft.
“To prevent the blonde from looking brassy, try going for a colour glossing service between colour appointments which will give your colour a boost and replenish your hair leaving it looking super shiny and healthy.”
