The Platinum Blonde 

platinum blondes, Michael & Co hair & beauty salon, Kidlington, OxfordIf you want to make a statement, choose an icy white shade of blonde such as platinum. 

This is a striking look which is sure to turn heads.

Make sure you keep your hair well conditioned and invest in regular trims and colour top-ups to keep your hair regrowth in check.




The Cool Ash Blonde 

Summer blondes, Michael & Co hair & beauty salon, Kidlington, OxfordSilver and ash blonde tones can look ultra sophisticated if you find that warmer caramel, golden and honey tones do not work with your skin tone.

Your colour specialist will be able to find the perfect blonde colour for you so make sure you discuss the look you’re after. 




The Highlighted Blonde  

Summer blondes, Michael & Co hair & beauty salon, Kidlington, OxfordIf you have dark hair and you’d like to lift the colour, ask your KAOS colour technician to add some golden highlights.  We can find the perfect tones to suit your hair and skin colouring.

Sun-kissed highlights and face-framing ‘babylights’ look sensational on all hair colours.

Another great look for darker hair is to try the latest ombre or balayage colouring techniques – see below.


The Fashion Forward Blonde – Ombre or Balayage 

Summer blondes, Michael & Co hair & beauty salon, Kidlington, OxfordThere are subtle difference between the ombre and balayage look but both looks hae a ‘dip-dyed’ effect where a darker colour blends into a lighter colour (or even a fashion colour such as pink, blue or lilac).

Ombre tends to be more dynamic with a definite line between the two colours, whereas balayage can be more subtle and almost ‘sun-kissed’. 

Usually we will mix at least two tones to create a look that graduates from darker at the roots to a lighter colour at the ends.  If you have another look in mind, bring in a photo to show to your colour expert.
