It is possible to get the desired changes in appearance and at the same time remain in trend thanks to the use of modern techniques in the coloring process. They do not involve a radical change in color, but rather aim to make the image natural, natural and bright at the same time.
Fashionable dyeing of blond hair is performed using the following techniques:
- Ombre - involves lightening from the middle of the length to the ends of the curls, followed by their toning. There are several types of this technique, but all of them are based on making a smooth or sharp transition between dark roots and light tips.
- Balayage - with light strokes of the brush, the master blends the colors in such a way as to achieve the most natural, natural transition to light tips.
- Bronding is a technique in which the hair is dyed in alternating 2-3 tones, while the roots are not affected. Thanks to this method, it is easy to turn into a natural blonde.

Highlights and coloring
Highlighting and coloring are two coloring techniques that are equally well suited for blond hair, but at the same timethe effect of doing them looks different.
Highlighting - the process of lightening individual curls. This technique involves the use of only one color and is performed using bleaching agents.
Coloring is a coloring method in which a smooth transition between strands is performed using 2-3 shades. At the same time, the master can work both with the entire volume of hair, and with separately selected curls. Real professionals skillfully combine up to 20 shades at once, creating a unique effect on the hair.
Coloring of blond hair is successfully performed by both highlighting and coloring techniques. The task of highlighting is to create the effect of a long stay in the sun, while coloring is a more complex procedure. With this technique, you can make curls more lively, light and voluminous.
Ombre blonde hair
Ombre is a relatively new technique in which the lower part of the hair is dyed a lighter (or darker) tone than the top. Initially, it was performed only on dark hair, but very quickly gained popularity, including among blondes. It is believed that the ombre technique is hair coloring for long strands. However, a hairstyle made using this technique looks no less stylish on a short haircut, and for women with a round face shape, the lightest strands in front help to look more attractive.
This coloring method has its ownvarieties:
- Classic - Ombre technique, in which there is no clear transition between the top and bottom of the hair. For blondes, this means a smooth transition from light roots to dark color at the tips.
- Stripe coloring is a method in which there is a contrasting strip between the upper and lower parts of the hair of the same color, usually from shades of light brown.
- Ombre with the effect of burnt hair is a professional technique that is difficult to implement at home. Typically, three tones are used for staining. The lightest is used to color the temporal region and front strands.
- Ombre with tongues of flame - a way to dye the ends of the hair with paint in bright, neon shades: pink, blue, lilac, etc.
Ombre coloring should be done by professionals for best results. But if you follow a number of recommendations, you can do it at home.
Ombre staining technique at home
Ombre coloring is done in two approaches. The first involves lightening the strands, and the second - toning.
The hair must be parted into two, and then into four parts (or eight if they are very thick). Starting from the middle of each beam, you need to apply a clarifier to the strands, having previously prepared it in accordance with the instructions. After the specified time, rinse with water.
Washed and dried hair divided again into four or eight parts. Now it is necessary to apply pre-diluted paint on each beam. Need to start withmiddle of bleached hair. In this place, the paint is applied in one layer, and on the tips - twice. Wash off after the time indicated on the package.
Now you need to apply conditioner and balm to your hair, dry it. To achieve the greatest effect, paint on the roots can be applied once more for 15 minutes and washed off again.
Features of the balayage technique for fair hair
Balayage is a hair coloring technique that achieves the most natural transition from one color to another. Translated from French, this word means "to brush away", which best defines the actions of the master when performing this technique. The painter really does seem to be waving the brush as he applies the paint, creating a subtle, superficial transition between shades.
A feature of the technique is that when it is performed, natural natural shades are used, and the transition is carried out within 2-3 tones. On light brown hair, balayazh imitates complete burnout. Coloring blond hair (photos after and before are presented below) in the presence of a basic tone within 9-10 levels involves the creation of nuances, honey, wheat, golden highlights.
Balayage on blond hair looks natural and natural, as if you are a natural blonde.
What is armoring?
Bronding is another modern coloring technique that is ideal for dark-haired girls who want to go blonde with minimal damage to their hair. Usually,in the process of creating the so-called natural hair effect, at least three types of dye are used.
Dyeing light hair with the bronding technique is to lighten the lower part of the hair by alternating three different shades, while the dye is not applied to the roots. Thanks to this gentle method, it is possible to obtain a natural light blond - luxurious and shiny hair without a yellow tint, as with traditional bleaching. This technique is ideal for girls with light brown and ashy hair color.
Light color short hair
The above techniques look perfect on long hair. But this does not mean at all that the owners of a short haircut should stay away. Ombre, balayazh and shatush are the techniques that a skilled artist can use to achieve equally spectacular light coloring.
Short hair a little below shoulder length is more suitable for ombre dyeing. At the same time, the tips should be lightened by 2-3 tones at least, otherwise the ombre will look like a poor-quality color. With the shatush and balayage techniques on short hair, the strands are dyed randomly, creating a natural effect of lightness and negligence, adding the missing volume to the hairstyle and making the woman's look more confident.
