There's way more to light hair colors than just a boring beige blond, honey. Today's light hair colors have depth and sass, just like today's modern woman. The key is to find the light shade that looks best with your skin tone and then rock it to the hilt.
If you want the ultimate shade of pale blonde, you need to get your butt to your favorite salon and ask your stylist to load you up with light golden blond highlights. This color works best if you base hair color is a light brown or dark blond (level seven or eight). It's all about lots of thin highlights created with the foiling technique. What adds depth to this sunny hue is leaving a 1/2 inch of roots when creating the highlights.
Fond of Brond
Get your own version of Jennifer Aniston's trademark brown color, paired with perfectly blended blond highlights, to create a sexy "brond" color. The key to this natural-looking hair color is a technique called balayage. This type of highlight is painted on, freehand, to create a darker root area and gradually lighter mid-shaft and ends. Ask your stylist for two toned highlights in both golden and baby blond.
Want a sexy light shade with just a bit more depth? Look no further than a delicious, caramel color. The perfect caramel color has a base of a light golden brown that sports subtle, lighter highlights around the face to brighten the whole color up. To add depth, keep the root area highlight free.
If your goal is to stand out in a crowd, there's no light hair color that holds a candle to a fabulous strawberry blond. The light golden-red tones of this hue make blue eyes and a pale complexion really pop. Think Nicole Kidman and that hallmark shade against her porcelain skin. Stunning!
