Slowly but surely men with peroxide blonde hair and becoming more and more common…
Celebs and footballers alike are trying stints with peroxide blonde locks and we’re still not fully sure how we feel about it. However, do you think you could pull it off?
The first to give it a go was Welsh footballer Aaron Ramsey. Something he later apologised to parents for after influencing young Wales fans to follow his lead. Lionel Messi soon followed with his own peroxide blonde do.
Where has it come from?
It wasn’t the footballers that started the trend, however. It was pops finest, Justin Bieber and Zayn Malik who reintroduced peroxide blond to the scene. Although, they made the wise decision to blend it with darker roots. This achieves an overall more stylish look. It’s a small part in a larger 90s revival we’re sure you’ve noticed is happening. But, would you suit peroxide blonde?
Where to do it?
Do not DIY this one! Bleach is a serious business. Doing it by yourself opens you up to all kinds of mishaps. Bleaching your hair happens in a two-stage process. Firstly the bleach on your hair, which, if left too long, can painfully burn your scalp. And then the adding of purple toner to enhance blonde colouring – without this you’ll end up ginger. Not strawberry blonde. No matter how many times you say so. Get it done professionally. Please.
Expect to pay £70-£100 for a full head of colour. This is depending on how dark your current hair is. And make sure they first give you a skin test to see if you react to the bleach.
Looking after it.
Obviously bleaching your hair is going to do some damage. Youll need a strengthening shampoo to stop your hair feeling course and dry. If you feel like it, you can even let your hair grow some roots before blending them into the peroxide blonde and follow in the steps of the more stylish pop crowd.
In conclusion if you can pull it off, go for it! If you have doubts, don’t. You cant quickly restore the damage bleaching does to your hair and you wont want to have to try if you make a mistake.
