Champagne Pop

From the Kardashians to Billie Eilish, blonde is becoming so popular this winter, but there are a few things to consider before you take the plunge.

The condition of your hair is vital to achieve the best look, but you also have to take your skin tone, its undertone and your eye colour into consideration.

There is a blonde shade for everyone who has the confidence to wear it.

Cooler skin tones with dark eyes tend to look beautiful with ashier cool-toned blonde; warm skin tones with pale eyes look fabulous with a hint of golden honey.

Hayley Forbes, a senior stylist and technician at Gregory Couzens, has created this stunning colour by mixing warm tones of champagne blonde with beige blonde.

The result? A beautiful creamy blonde.

Hayley said: “Beige blonde and champagne blonde both have an intense shine which is why many people confuse the two.

“Beige has an ash blonde hue with sandy undertones, while champagne can be worn super light or on the darker side depending on your skin tone.

“Over the past two years, grey hair has been incredibly popular, but requires a lot of maintenance with regular toners, champagne pop blonde is much softer, easy to maintain and compliments Karla’s warmer complexion and brightens her eyes.

“This low maintenance look seamlessly flows from a-close-to-your-natural-colour shadow root to a combination of champagne and beige tips. The contrast is eye catching and grows out incredibly well.”

The mixture of these colours is new, so if you feel like you need a boost, ask your technician to recommend the right shade for you.

Always ask about ongoing maintenance and cost, especially in this present climate.
