Choose the right blonde for you
Remember that there are many shades of blonde and not all of them will suit you. Talk to a hairstylist before you decide and ask their advice on the best shades of blonde for your skin tone. Get some ideas first, by looking at magazines and then you can take those pictures with you to the stylist.
Have your hair dyed at a salon

If you don’t want to be wearing a hat for the next six months, it would be advisable to get your hair dyed by a professional. In the very worst scenario, if you did it yourself and you used too much bleach, your hair could fall out.
