How to Pick the Best Highlights for a Natural Blonde

Learn how to pick the best blonde hair highlights for natural blondes from Pierre Michel Salon colorist AJ Lordet in this Howcast hair tutorial.


Being already a natural blonde, you're one step ahead of the game. One of the things I would discuss would be, what kind of look are you looking for for your natural blonde hair? Is it something subtle or something more dramatic? One of the things we could do together would be to look at some pictures. A lot times celebrities and models can offer us a whole arrangement of different types of blonde we can have. Being that your hair is already naturally blonde, the process is much more simple.

We could either go in with a foil or a balayage technique and paint lightener on a few or many pieces of hair depending on your desired lightness, or the desired result you'd like to have. But being a natural blonde is one step ahead of the rest. Much, much easier. So you have your natural hair, again, we'll decide which hair to make lighter. How light to make it and then based on your skin tone, we can either apply a toner to bring out cool tones or warm tones. At the end of the day, you have your natural hair and we're just beautifying it.
