Blonde Consultation – Expert Tips for Cool Blonde

Clients with fair skin complexion (more pink than olive) and light eyes (blue, grey) can really pull off lighter and platinum blonde shades! However, with fair skin clients, it is important not to add too much warmth to the hair as this will only highlight the pink undertones in the skin making it look flushed.


Platinum blonde is also the most demanding colour to maintain, often requiring re-adjustment with each retouch service to prevent the hair from becoming too light or flat through the lengths and ends. So, to give you the confidence to create iconic blondes, Schwarzkopf Professional provide answers to specific cool blonde questions:
