It may no longer be icy cold outside now that Spring is officially here, but that doesn’t mean we can say goodbye to the frost just yet. Ice white hair is storming Hollywood with actresses Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart, and Cara Delenvingne all rocking the soft ice blonde shade.
The fun hair colour is a summer essential as light shades are easier to pull off in the warmer weather. But beware, this trendy look is not an easy one to maintain or to be done on your own. No, this is a job for a hair specialist. For that reason, we’ve asked some of the UK’s top professionals to recommend tips on mastering the ice blonde trend.
1. Hair consultation
“Always have a consultation with your hairdresser before opting for this hair colour trend so that a plan of action can be worked out.” – Neil Barton of Neil Barton Hairdressing
2. Find your shade
“Consider your skin tone when deciding on which shade of ice blonde you want to go.” – Casey Coleman of JOICO
3. Protect your hair
“Hair masks are beneficial to keep your hair looking and feeling healthy after it has been coloured.” – Suzie McGill owner of Rainbow Room International’s Uddingston Salon
4. Maintain your colour
“Use silver shampoo and conditioner to keep the hair looking ‘icy’ and to stray away from getting any unwanted yellow or brassy tones.” – Karen Thompson owner of KAM Hair and Body Spa
5. Update your makeup
“Switch your makeup and go for a warmer foundation when going this light to avoid the skin looking too washed out.” – Karen Thompson owner of KAM Hair and Body Spa
Now that you have all the necessary tips to adopt the look, go and rule like a Hollywood ice queen.
