Things You Need To Know Before Going Blonde

There is no denying that blonde hair is fabulous. Every summer we meet lots of clients that are desperate to brighten up their hair colour and go blonde. However, there are some things that you need to know before going blonde and we have listed these things below for you.

  1. Going Blonde Takes Time

If your hair is very dark, it is impossible for our hairdressers in Sleaford to give you platinum blonde hair in one appointment.  While the world of hair colouring has come a long way over the years, it’s not possible to change your hair colour by multiple shades without damaging it.

Everyone’s hair is different, and this means there is no set length of time it will take to go blonde. Our professional hair colourists will never push processed hair past it’s limits and will only lighten your hair as light as it will go. Magic can happen and hair will sometimes go lighter than expected, but it’s important to keep your expectation in check so you’re not disappointed.

  1. Going Blonde Needs Proper Care

If you don’t give your new blonde hair the proper care and attention that it needs, it will become dry and gain a yellowy tone. Again, hair treatments and colouring services have come a long way over the years, but bleach will still do some damage to your hair.

That said, there are some amazing hair colour products designed for those that go blonde. When you have your hair colouring appointment in Sleaford ask your hair colourist what hair care products, they would recommend for your hair to help keep those brassy yellow tones at bay. Salon professional hair care products will be the best for caring for your hair at home. But remember, everyone’s hair is different so ask your stylist for their recommendations.

  1. Going Blonde Will Cost

It’s important to understand that it will cost money to go blonde. Think about the blonde shade you want to achieve and share this with your hair colourist. They will let you know how long the hair colour transformation could take and how much this will cost. The lighter you are going, the longer the hair colour transformation will take. This will include more trips to the hair salon, which means more money on hair appointments.

The more patient and realistic you are, the more you’ll be able to spread the cost of going blonde. However, if you’re looking to go blonde as quickly as possible, you will need to be prepared for the cost associated with that. It’s likely you’ll spend a few hours in the salon each visit, and then repeating appointments to lighten your hair in safe steps.


These are just three of the things you need to know before starting your journey to becoming blonde. However, there is lots more to consider too. This is why we recommend a hair colour consultation. This gives us a chance to understand your hair goals and let you know what you can expect from the journey and hair colour transformation.
