When women want some change, they pay attention to their appearance and the first thing they do is hair. Changing hair, styling or color is a fairly common procedure. This is a simple and at the same time effective way that brings new details to the image of a woman, making it unusual and interesting. Many girls choose an ash medium blond tone. At the same time, some make decisions on their own, while others consult with specialists. But one way or another, the choice of hair color depends on a number of factors.
Features of the ash-blond range
The main distinguishing feature of this color palette is the complete absence of red inclusions. This shade is ideally cold, and in natural light brown there is a warm undertone, which is especially pronounced after lightening the hair. For this reason, as a rule, simple tinting is not enough, it becomes necessary to use resistant paints.
However, everything is not as simple with them as it might seem at first glance. Any hair dye that can be found on sale gives an ash-blond range due to the presence of gray or blue pigment. It is he who contributes to the creation of a specific ebb.
At the same time, if there is yellowness in the hair, even to a slight extent, the result is a dirty gray, marsh or gray-green tint. And this is definitely not the result that you want to get on your head. For clarity, in the article you can find several photos of medium-ash blond hair color.
Due to these features, experts recommend not to carry out the first staining on your own, it is better to entrust this matter to professionals. Even a simple toning procedure in inept hands can end very badly. At the same time, if the tonic can be washed off in a week (maximum), then with regard to persistent paints, a washing procedure or staining in a darker shade will be required.
Who suits the ash-blond gamma
Ash-blond shade has recently become very popular, becoming a fashion trend. However, despite this, it should be understood that this range is not suitable for all representatives of the beautiful half of humanity. It should be chosen by girls with light curls and skin.
This color scheme can give even the most modest girls a spectacular and bright image. Oriental beauties with a characteristic tan should pay attention to medium blond brown-ash darkshade.
Humanity has been familiar with the universality of this range for a long time. Visually, she can “throw off” a couple of years, thereby rejuvenating a woman a little and giving her self-confidence. The tone is suitable for almost any type of appearance, but only if the right shade is chosen. Ultimately, the face is freshened, the appearance changes and only for the better, a special individual charm is created.
It is also worth considering another important aspect - eye color. Ash-blond gamut goes well with gray, blue and gray-blue tint. In this case, the hair serves as a great addition to the created image. At the same time, the natural harmonious lines of the face are not violated.
Who suits the ash-blond gamma, we told above. Photos of medium blond ashy hair are available in this material. At the same time, the technique of staining in such a shade is reminiscent of taking medications: there are also contraindications. This mainly applies to women with golden or red curls, which are given by nature itself. As a result of dyeing, a green tint may appear on the hair, and the face visually acquires a yellowish-green tint.
Besides this, the condition of the facial skin also plays an important role. The presence of a number of defects is a direct refusal to stain ashen:
- pimples, scars, scars;
- skin pigmentation of a pronounced nature;
- bruises, bags under the eyes;
- multiple shallow or deepmimic wrinkles;
- frequent redness and peeling of the skin;
- proximity of capillaries to the surface of the epidermis.
In other words, the face must be perfect! In addition, women should refuse to dye in an ash-blond shade if they do not have the time and desire to care for their curls.
Shades of medium blonde
It so happened historically that the hair color of the majority of the inhabitants of our country is as close as possible to the light brown shade. This can be understood from many photos of the medium-blond ash tone of the curls from this article. Without a doubt, the hair color that is bestowed by Mother Nature herself suits each of us. Unfortunately, there are not the most successful combinations, or the appearance seems inexpressive.
Then the way out of the situation is to dye your hair in an ashy shade. At the same time, preference is given to the medium blond color, which is rich in various shades:
- Light is the most eye-catching shade of the entire palette. Among natural tones, it represents the lightest scale. But it is quite difficult to achieve it by staining.
- Golden may include solar inclusions. Currently, this shade is very popular. This is mainly due to the high versatility. Owners of such hair look unique and quite attractive. You can even say that about the golden medium blond and ash color (photoabove) is the dream of every fashionista.
- Copper. In this shade, a pronounced opposite can be traced: on the one hand, it is a bright embodiment of the flame, on the other, the cold restraint of ice. In nature, such a shade simply does not exist, but this does not negate the fact that the final image is stunning. To get a shade, you should contact the experts: only they can create such beauty.
- Ash. The topic of this article is devoted to this shade. The color belongs to the cold range and therefore it is almost impossible to get it at home. When choosing coloring compositions, extreme care must be taken.
- Wheat. The shade is extremely attractive and unique. Not only is it found in nature in extremely rare cases, it is also quite difficult to obtain it. Under different lighting, the color can look different: from light blond to coffee tone.
- Medium. For many girls, it is the medium-blond ash shade that is in the leading position on the wish list. Its intensity is noticeably higher than that of the options listed above. Nevertheless, it cannot be called dark. The color looks as natural as possible and, in fact, due to this, it is able to attract the attention of the opposite sex.
- Dark. Here the result of staining largely depends on the degree of qualification of the specialist. Not every woman can boast of a natural shade.
Almost the entire palette looks quite attractive, which, in fact, seduces many girls.
Nevertheless, it is better to coordinate the use of one or another tone with a specialist. In addition, in some cases, it is impossible to do without complete discoloration of the curls.
For an ash-blond shade, different means may be suitable. Just keep in mind that you can achieve the desired color for a long time only with the help of persistent paints. In many photos, medium ash blonde hair color looks impressive.
But since these formulations contain ammonia, the hair will suffer to a greater or lesser extent anyway. In this case, it all depends on the correct execution of the procedure. With regard to light curls, it will be enough to use only tinting agents.
Tinted hair balms
Tinting balms contain a large amount of coloring pigment, but there is no oxidizing agent. The dye is not able to penetrate deep into the hair and remains only on the surface of the rod. As a result, it washes off easily. Among balms, the following can be considered effective remedies:
- "Tonic". The series is represented by a wide range of colors: from pearl to dark shades under the numbers 8.10, 9.02, 9.10, 7.10 and others.
- "Estelle". The Quality SoloTon line includes dark and light ash colors numbered 1.14, 1.16.
- "Londa". This brand offers a choice of three main ash shades: 6.4, 6.5, 6.6.
It should be borne in mind that the balms contain purple pigment, so you should notoverdo them. Otherwise, instead of an attractive medium-blond ash color, you can get the image of Malvina, which is not suitable for every girl. In addition, such an image is relevant for any festive event, but by no means for everyday wear.
Tinted hair shampoos are available as a safe alternative to permanent ammonia dyes. However, the pigment in them is much less than in balms. Their main purpose is to neutralize yellowness and maintain shade. They have nothing to do with direct staining.

And all thanks to the fact that the ash-blond color effectively hides gray hair. That is why most older women use this range.
