The New Year is only a few days away, which means it's time to put away the mulled wine, eggnog, or whatever holiday drink you fancied this season and instead bust out the champagne. And since there's truly no better way to ring in the New Year than with a bottle of bubbly, why not take it a step further and try a champagne hair color? New Year, new you, you know!
The beige blonde shade with a golden undertone is already a favorite on Instagram, and it's easy to see why. New York-based hair colorist Kimberly Bonondona says two of the most commonly requested blonde shades are gold blonde or icy blonde, and champagne is the perfect mix of both. "When the root is warmer and it melts into this bright beige blonde with a golden undertone, it resembles a glass of champagne," says Kimberly.
To get this specific shade of blonde, Kimberly says she first colors the hair to a true level 10, then tones it with a 10 natural for a bright-but-beige look to capture all the dimension of a glass of bubbly.
If you've already tried champagne blonde before and are looking to try something new, might I interest you in rosé champagne instead? This shade is similar to the champagne blonde in that it also is a beige with a golden undertone, but it has a little more rose gold.
"To spice it up, I'll add in a hint of light pink or a hint of rose gold, or sometimes just a hint of gold to create the illusion of a different undertone," she says.
Happy new hair!
