Ice, Ice, (Blonde) BABY!

Achieving icy blonde locks is not as hard as one might think. BUT it is essential to use this crucial coloring step- TONERS! A toner is an added step in the coloring process that only takes an additional 5-7 minutes. It is a step that neutralizes brassy yellow and orange tones on bleached hair. When applied to bleached hair, it takes it to more of an ashy, champagne, or platinum color. That means a much more natural-looking hair tone!

Toners are a deposit only color. They won't affect your natural, uncolored hair. They typically last about 4-5 weeks depending on how often you wash your hair. If you wash your hair everyday, it is likely that your toner will fade off quickly! 

One way to help keep that icy look is with the products you use at home. Invest in a great purple shampoo that is rich and deep in color. The purple pigment helps to cancel out any yellow, brassy tones in the hair. Bumble and bumble also just launched a unique product to aid in toner fading. They have launced Bb Color Gloss. It is an at home toner that lasts up to 3 washes. It comes in 5 shades, and they have one made specifically for cool blondes. This is a great tool to have at home!
