The process of every sandy blonde transformation relies on the base colour you’re working with, so there’s no one-size-fits-all colouring technique. However, there are a few rules that always apply when going sun-kissed…
1. Pre-Lighten Darker Locks First
For sandy blonde highlights to show up, you’ll need to pre-lighten hair that’s any darker than a medium blonde. Our award-winning collection of hair lighteners, Blondor, has you covered, with so many ways to take locks brighter. Try Freelights for sandy balayage, Soft Blonde Cream on hair that’s a little sensitive, and Multi-Blonde Powder for everything from highlights to an all-over lift.
2. Try Adding Wellaplex to the Formula
The best blonde hair partner? Wellaplex; our bond-strengthening system you can mix right into your colour formula to achieve optimal lift and stronger locks. There’s also a post-lightening treatment – No3 Hair Stabilizer – that can be taken home and applied as a conditioner, pampering hair to perfection.
3. Combine Cool and Warm Blonde Hues
Sandy blonde hair should be multi-tonal. While largely warm-toned, a few cooler ribbons ensure locks sparkle and the colour flatters all skin tones. You can up the level of coolness if you’re working with a warmer complexion and dial up the warmth in highlights if skin has cool undertones. It’s basically the blonde of your dreams.
