Bronde is the New Blonde

11 May

After catching sight of myself in a picture where my hair looked like white candyfloss I have decided my days as a platinum blonde are thru!

Kay Bruce as Platinum Blonde – no “candyfloss” thanks to straighteners!

Not only does all the highlighting damage my hair to breaking point (literally), but the cost of keeping the re-growth at bay is around £1500 a year…yep, I did the maths…wish I hadn’t!

 So what now? Difficult to go darker it’s true – a risk of going green if you’re not careful, but if you choose redish tones that shouldn’t happen. And my good friend Louise is testament to DIY de-blonding, she looks gorgeous with red hair!
The colour I’ve set my sights on is the golden honey brown/blonde tones sported by the likes of Rosie Huntingdon-Whitely, AnnaLynne McCord, Gisele Bundchen, and, of course, Jennifer Anniston (before recently going lighter). I’ve named this colour “Bronde” as it’s somewhere between brown and blonde and I love it!:

I sit surrounded by cut out heads from magazines – my hair idols everywhich way I look. Now all I have to do is work out how the packets of hair dye I just bought are going to give me the desired effect. Wish me luck!!

      It’s not an easy transition! 🙂 I used semi-permanent dyes at home to get it a bit darker, but it was looking patchy, somy hairdresser took it quite dark, which I didn’t like at first…then it started to fade up pretty quickly and I do like it now – as it’s bronde and I don’t have to highlight anymore!

    You can always mix dye colours to achieve the look you want, if you can’t find the one you want. Being a dark brunette with a silver streak and a sprinkling of salt and pepper my hairdresser suggested mixing red toned dye with chocolate dye and of course you can keep the left over colour (not mixed with the the other stuff of course) for the next time. So perhaps you could mix honey tones with a little auburn? Can’t wait to see the new look. Good luck… Cx
