Time for cropped blonde bob? If Hollywood is anything to go by, we think yes. Anthony Nader has stepped in with some hair wisdom to consider before you go the full chop ‘n’ bleach.

THE CROP
Before going the shear, be mindful of your face and head shape and ask your hairdresser for their expertise on what length will enhance your new platinum tresses.

THE RIGHT TARGET SHADE
Hairdresser’s “talk” when you’re wanting blonde, and they automatically think of the colour chart scale 1 – 9; 9 being the lightest (think Katy Perry), and 1 being black. Remember that the darker you are naturally, the more process you will need to acquire the ideal blonde, and this also comes down to handing over more money because of the extra appointments, time allocation and product use. Keep in mind though, that if you’re on a budget and your hair is still orange, you need to have another bleach application to take the hair level lighter.

SKIN TONE
Just because you’re totally inspired by Kristen Stewart’s Chanel blonde crop, that doesn’t necessarily mean her tone will work with your skin tone. For instance, if you’re complexion is warm, you need to make sure your deserved blonde tone is learning more on a cooler / ash tone so this balances out.
