After more than a year of spread out color dates and makeshift root touch-up products, the general consensus for dyeing your hair is to give in to the color you dreamed of in your 40s.
However, if going blonde is in the cards, you should know that maintaining your bleached hair is going to take more effort than just brushing root powder at home. Drastic movement is a bit like going from jogging outside in a spacious park to back to treadmill running in a sweaty and crowded gym.
But that’s where the honey-wheat blonde comes in – a more subdued shade that’s trending for summer 2021.
While this hair color is an easier transition back into the salon, it’s just as punchy as platinum blonde.
âThis shade of blonde mimics the colors of a wheatfield on a cool summer day when the wind picks up and it shines in the sun,â says Jenna Perry, celebrity colourist known for creating the coolest blondes from his living room. Jenna Perry Hair Studio At New York. “It’s fresh for 2021 because it’s more blended / diffused with less dimension, and it looks pricey while still being effortless. It gives you that fresh look out of the living room while remaining naturally whipped up.”
