If you are planning to get platinum blonde hair, here are things you need to know. It’s also worth noting that you should get your platinum blonde done by a professional. DIY is not recommendable, especially if you are a beginner.
1. Color does not cover color
If you already have your hair colored, you will have to have the color stripped before getting your hair to platinum blonde. You can strip the color on your hair using a hair color remover.
2. Bleaching will be required
Depending on the original color of your hair, few steps may be required to process your original hair out and get your new hair color in. Whether you are starting with black hair or blonde, platinum blonde hair involves taking most of the pigment out of the hair strands to get a clean, white look.
3. You need to have a color inspiration
It’s good to have an inspiration picture on hand to show your colorist. Although platinum blonde hair seems quite self-explanatory, the shade comes in different variations. There’s bluish, ivory white hue, icy, etc. That’s why it’s important to have an inspiration picture to serve as inspiration for your new hair color. This will help the colorist to give you a platinum shade that suits your needs.
4. Be realistic
Even though you have an in-post picture, and you can’t wait to rock that style in the picture, it’s good to manage your expectations. For instance, if you have black hair, it will require so much work to get it to a platinum blonde shade- that’s quite a few sessions to get your desired icy blonde hair shade.
