Q: I’ve wanted to dye my naturally brown hair blonde for years, but I’m afraid that the color won’t match my skin tone. How should I go about it?

A: Going blonde will be especially flattering for you if you were a blonde baby and if you can commit to touching up your mane regularly. When you’re initially going blonde, choose a shade that’s neutral or cool instead of warm, gold or honey. Julia Youssef, executive director of L'Oréal Paris's Hair Color Technical Center and Product Evaluation, tells Marie Claire, “Lightening naturally warms up your hair; if you choose a warm-colored dye, you may end up too [orangey] gold.” To maintain your luxurious blonde locks, avoid products with high amounts of alcohol, because they can make hair dry and dull.
