A Simple Test to Tell If Blonde Hair Suits You
Are you thinking of going blonde? Or perhaps you have already gone blonde?
There are so many women today running to the hair salon to put blonde in their hair when it doesn’t bring out their best. Perhaps you may be one of them. Most women who go blonde when blonde is out of alignment with their coloring are unknowingly choosing a hair color that results in them looking duller, worn, outdated, odd, unbalanced and even older.
The best way to know whether blonde gives off your best is by having a color analysis or by visiting a hair color professional who has experience and training determining hair colors that suit you. However, if you are unable to do either, the video above includes a simple test you can do on your own to assess whether blonde hair gives off your best. You can do this test whether you have or have not gone blonde — the video includes instructions for both scenarios.
If you find this test reveals to you that blonde hair does not give off your best and you still want to go blonde, consider countering the negative impacts on the vibrancy of your appearance by wearing makeup, clothing and accessory colors that give off your best.
It ultimately is up to you — Do you want to go blonde or do you want a hair color that gives off your best?
I hope this blog post inspires you to wear your authenticity!
