You read right: bronde isn’t a typo – it’s actually a thing. This hair color was made popular by the lovely Gisele Bundchken back in 2009 when she debuted the perfect mix between blonde and brunette that took the world by storm. Since that time, women have desired this look – and many are still rocking it today, if not more than ever. Today, Lionesse gives you some important tips before going bronde that you need to keep in mind and implement into your hair regime, so that you can be as beautiful as any Victoria’s Secret model or even Gisele herself!
The number one thing you need to do before undergo becoming a bronde – whether you plan on creating your bronde look yourself, or plan on heading to the salon – is to make sure your hair is completely healthy before introducing any sort of dye, and especially bleach, product to your hair.
Using a moisturizing hair mask for a week before color treating your hair is super important. Coconut oil also works fantastically. Getting a cut or trim before getting your hair color treated will ensure your hair is better able to hold onto a darker hue of color.
Another tip: Be sure to search for the perfect hairstyle in photos online, so that your stylist knows exactly what you want in terms of hue, so nobody is left with any shocking surprises in the end.
Going Bronde from Dark
If your hair is on the darker side before you decide you want to opt for bronde, keep in mind your skin tone and skin color. If you’ve got darker skin, like say Latina or Mediterranean women, bronde will work exceptionally well for you. It will allow you to go blonde, to a point, without going overboard for a super light blonde color that just won’t cut it. The bronde hairstyle is said to be likened to an ombre, as the lighter shade will begin being applied from the cheekbones downward, giving a golden effect. The important aspect here is, for those with darker skin, that brown crowns the face – but the golden can be applied anywhere else, and it’s perfectly okay.
Going Bronde from Blonde
If you’re blonde and you want to darken it up a bit by going bronde, you should also take your skin tone into consideration. If your skin is super fair, that’s okay – all shades of blonde can work for you. When you’re going bronde from blonde, top coloring stylist from Keratin Complex international says to keep those blonde strands and allow them to show through the bronde color, incorporating a level deeper and warmer than the original targeted shade, and also add in some lightener to change up the tone a little bit to even things out some.
