What Are The Benefits of Having Blonde Hair?
We think all hair colours can be stunning here at Peewees, but as this article is about blonde shades, here are just a few reasons why you might like to join the blonde brigade!
Each and every shade of blonde has its own unique character. Blondes are a brilliant way to add part of your personality to your hair, creating looks that range from innocent to sun-kissed beach styles to glamorous platinum blondes.
Having lighter coloured hair also opens up a whole range of other exciting colours to play around with. Temporary tints such as quirky pastel shades or bold fashion colours applied with hair chalks show up brilliantly on blonde hair, so you can almost try out a different shade for every mood and occasion.
Blonde shades are as timeless as they are iconic – for decades, film stars from Marilyn Monroe to Cameron Diaz have been showcasing blonde styles. In choosing to go blonde, you too will have the power to turn heads!
Are There Any Disadvantages To Having Blonde Hair?
If you opt for an all-over shade of blonde, you’ll need to visit to our salon to have your root regrowth touched up every eight weeks or so. Regrowth with highlights is far less obvious, but to keep your highlights looking great, you may want have a T-section cover-up approximately every eight weeks as well. Balayage requires even less maintenance and you may not need to visit our salon again for 2-3 months or so.
