Warm shades are now replacing cool or icy blondes. If you want to jump on the bandwagon and have a glow-up, it’s time to go for warm blonde.
You’ll be happy to know that we’ve rounded up some of the best warm blonde hair color ideas in this article.
Warm Blonde Vs. Cool Blondes: What’s Better For You?
These two types of blondes actually have various differences. Here are some of them:
Warm blondes are lighter in shade because they reflect light, while cool blondes are darker in color. This is because of their undertones. The undertones are copper, gold, and mahogany, while ash and mauve are the undertones of cold blonde.
To keep cold blondes from becoming brassy, you need to use purple shampoo. On the other hand, warm blondes require the use of golden toning shampoo to maintain its warm tone.
Skin Tone Compatibility
Women with pale skin would look great with warm blondes, while cool blondes will add a touch of luminosity to women with darker skin tones.
