If you are interested in going blond or tweaking your existing blond color you need to consider your skin tone. The fairer you are the warmer tone you need in order to balance out your look. If you are darker or have an olive complexion then you will need a more neutral golden color. This will avoid a washed out look. You never want your hair color to match your skin! Always use the best shampoo, in the case of blonds use a violet-colored shampoo once per week and this will help tone down the brassy or dull color!
