What You Need To Know Before Coloring Your Hair

The Asian blonde hair color is a major trend right now. Scroll through your Instagram feed any given day, and you will surely see pictures of Asian style influencers showing off their dyed, bleached hair. This Asian blonde hair look is all the trend right now. Thanks to the ombre trend that took off a few years ago, Asian blonde hair became a thing. Though it may seem like a simple process, make sure you know all that goes into coloring your dark hair and transforming it into beautiful Asian blonde hair.

Be Ready to Be Patient

Coloring your dark hair blonde will take time

So you think you are ready to dye your dark Asian hair blonde? Though you may see before and after pictures on Instagram, dying your hair from dark to blonde is not an easy or quick process. The coloring process will likely take several rounds of bleaching to get your hair to the ideal blonde color. Be sure to be clear with the hairstylist of your desired look. Show your stylist pictures of what you want your hair to look like. Depending on how dark your hair is at the start of the process, it may take several months to get your hair to its desired blonde color (if you are coloring it safely). While you are in the process of coloring your hair from dark to blonde, beware that your hair color may be brassy and orange during the interim.

What color of blonde is best for you?

There are several variations and shades of blonde. So many, that nearly everyone can pull off some shade of blonde. Asian women can most certainly wear and look good with blonde hair. So, if you want to pull off the Asian blonde hair look, you can pull it off.

Icy blonde hair

This color will look good on you if you have fair or pale skin. It is a super fun look, but can be tricky to pull off.

Platinum blonde hair

This is a very popular color. This is the most common color for Asian women (and men) to dye their hair. Major Asian style and fashion influencers have platinum blonde hair, making it desirable to more people and to those who look to these influencers for inspiration. This color looks great on people with porcelain skin. Subtle highlights can enhance your look.

Dark to Asian blonde ombre hair

This style is a great option for people who are not ready to make the complete transition to full-on blonde hair. Plus, if you decide at a later point that you do not want blonde hair anymore, you can cut off the blonde without much stress or hassle. There are so many fun color options and variation to get this look.

Warm, honey blonde hair with highlights

Warmer tones tend to look better on fair and medium skin tones. This color is not as popular with Asian women than the platinum blonde look. This color can be more difficult to pull off. A subtle highlight can also look good with this color. Also, beware of fading with this color.

Ash blonde hair

Ash blonde hair looks great on people with fair skin with blue-green undertones. This is another popular color for Asian blonde hair.

Dirty blonde hair with highlights

Anytime you opt for highlights, make sure you trust your hair stylist. Highlights can quickly turn bad, orange, and striped if you do not have a good hairstylist doing your hair.

Most importantly, ask an expert

t is ideal — and recommended — that you have an idea of what color blonde you want before seeing a hair stylist. However, you should consult a hair stylist who can give you more information on the different colors and how they will look on you with your skin tone, as well as share their insight and advice based off their work on previous clients. It is to your advantage to go to someone who has experience bleaching dark Asian hair blonde.

If you dye your hair in the dead of winter and are more pale than usual, think about how your hair will look if you get a little more tan. If you tan very easily, be sure to share that information with your hair stylist so they can most accurately help you determine the best hair for your skin tone.

Have a Plan for Your Hair

Make a plan for your asian blonde hair for the next year

Once you have made the decision to go from dark hair to blonde hair, and know that the process will take some time, you next need to make a plan to get your currently dark hair to the desired Asian blonde color. If you are planning to do an ombre hair color, be sure you cut your hair to your desired style before starting the coloring process.

Because coloring your hair blonde will take several rounds of coloring, you will not want to cut a lot off while going through this color process; rather you would want to do a major cut before going through the color transformation. Minor trims are fine — and probably necessary because of the damage bleaching does to your hair — but make sure to do any major haircuts before you start the bleaching process to get to your desired Asian blonde hair color. Otherwise, you will cut off all the blonde that you have paid so much for — both in time and money.

Be Patient

If you have colored your hair recently, it will likely take you a few trips to the salon to get your hair to the color you desire. In order not to damage your hair, you really should only go a few shades lighter during each session. If you try to go too blonde too fast, it will likely turn orange and brassy. Not the beautiful Asian blonde color you are going for. Worse, it can break and do serious damage to your beautiful Asian hair. In this instance, patience is a virtue.

Be sure to consult with your hairdresser before you start the process, so you are completely aware of the entire process and length of time it will take to get your dark hair to the desired blonde hair color. It typically takes longer for Asian hair to turn blonde because it is thicker and has more melanin than other types of hair. Yes, spending your entire Saturday at the hair salon does not sound ideal. But, it is well worth it. In general, the longer you spend at the salon, the better your hair will turn out. It may be painful to endure at the time, but you will be so much happier with your hair, especially if you are happy with your hair.
