Just a few years ago perfect blond a light shade uniform along the entire length was considered. Desirable cold, ashy. They got rid of dark roots as quickly as possible – blondes were forced to go to the salon almost twice a month. Everyone seemed to have forgotten that even natural blonde girls have dark roots, and were striving for an unreal blonde – such as that of fairy-tale characters or children. However, the shade equally light along the entire length looks too unnatural – like a wig. Indeed, in fact, the roots are always darker, and the tips eventually fade in the sun. However, earlier hairdressers simply did not come up with techniques to achieve a light coloration that was as close to natural as possible.
Now the situation has changed dramatically: a “dear” beautiful blond is necessarily a blond with dark roots. Of course, not with an even overgrown strip, but with a smooth transition of close to natural dark to the desired light. Take a look at any famous blonde, be it Svetlana Loboda or Melania Trump: she will definitely have roots that are slightly different in color from the main color. Because it looks natural, stylish and relevant.

If you are just going to become a blonde, then immediately choose this technique. If you have been painting in total blond for many years, then the master will have a little more difficulty – you will need to paint over the roots in dark so that it looks natural and one color smoothly passes into another.
