    Default Any platinum blondes on bubhub?

    I've decided to go platinum, which I've wanted to do for quite a few years

    Are any platinum blondes on here willing to share how much their upkeep costs?

    I have light-medium brown hair (bob) and I've found a place that can get me to the desired shade in one sitting using a special foiling technique.

    I am prepared that it's expensive to maintain this shade, but I was a bit surprised at the quote I got for the roots to be done every 6-8 weeks.

    Just wondering what the regular is. Advice totally appreciated!

    I can't help you with your question, though I know it's gets exxy with the upkeep of the roots etc, but oh la la, you are going to look amazing as a platinum blonde!!
    What is the new foiling technique?

    Yep, me Well mine is more of a creamy 9.0 blonde rather than the silvery platinum, but it's very blonde. It is a lot of upkeep. I pay around $80 for roots, but first they put a bleach in to take it to a 10.0 then put a toner dye in. That softens the colour and tones out any yellow. I can get away with every 8 weeks.

    You'll also need a purple/blue shampoo and conditioner. I use John Freida, it's in woolies in the Blonde section of the shampoos. It's around $20 a bottle but it's brilliant for keeping the brassiness at bay.

    Just for me, I think you really need blue/green/light eyes to pull off that blonde. I'm a dark brown in hair but my eyes are light blue green.

    Since you are on, I'm going to link a photo just after I had a colour then remove it, so please don't quote me

    I usually am but went ombre at the last appointment. I will be going back to blonde in 6 weeks.
    I pay $170 ever 6 weeks for my cut and colour.
    Shampoo and conditioner is another $50 and $25 for at home treatments.

    Thanks lovely!

    Not sure about the technique, but the salon is award winning/reputable.

    Degrassi, Delirium's blonde would suit you. My friend had the same colour with dark eyes like yours and it was so flattering on her.

    Do you have fine or thin hair (or both) degrassi?

    I read a great article the other day (I have fine hair but lots of it) about how being 'too' blond with that type of hair isn't the best way to go. I've been meaning to send it to my mom as her hair looks horrible lately and she has fine and thin hair. I've been doing ombré, belliage or just highlights the past couple years and it definitely looks so much better than when I go all over blond. I last went platinum right after having DS, it looked cute in the beginning but I ended up going back to ombré/belliage the next time I got it done.

    Let me know if you'd like the article.

    I have fine hair too and yes you need to be careful with frying it. Particularly if you are naturally dark and need the 2 stages like I do. I've really been stretching out my dying since I've been pg as the womb parasite plus fine hair plus very blonde is a disaster to the hair's condition.

    I say jump in and try it. The worst that can happen is you hate it and go back to your original colour.
