How to Get Gold Blonde Highlights

How to Get Golden Blonde Highlights

Golden blonde hair highlights are done by the same technique and procedure as all of the other types of highlights. The golden shade can be achieved by a mixture of a different shade, from which all should be highly shiny and pigmented.

In order to make your golden highlights stand out, there has to be a difference in the base color of your hair. If there is not one, then the highlight will barely be visible. If they are done on darker hair, then, the process of bleaching is unavoidable since the base for the golden highlights must be light.

Styling short hair highlights with golden blonde hue are no different than styling any other hair length. Depending on your cit, you can style the hair straight or wavy.

However, the waves are the number one styling option when it comes to showing off the difference in color. Curl or waves, however, you like them will flaunt the golden highlights.
