Blond Consultation – Expert Tips for Warm Blond

In general the most suited clients for warm blond shades are the ones with brown, hazel, light green or light blue eyes and a golden-brown, peach or ivory skin complexion.

Pastel strawberry blond can work fantastic on paler skin tones and by mixing cool and warm tones together a creamy, warm color can be achieved, which is both soft and flattering for fairer skin types. Whereas darker golden, honey or caramel tones are perfect to enable darker based clients to tip toe into blonde from brunette with partial painting techniques such as Balayage or Ombré.

Selecting and delivering the right blond shades for salon clients is paramount, so to keep your knowledge on point Schwarzkopf Professional provide answers to specific warm blond questions:

When to pre-lighten and tone?
Lightening and toning on natural bases 6 and darker with BLONDME Bond Enforcing Premium Lightener 9+ and a selected BLONDME Blond Toning shade will provide light and beautifully subtle golden tones.

Note: for more vivid warm blonde tones, such as copper or strawberry blond, it is not always necessary to pre-lighten first – the natural warm pigment found in the hair can actually help achieve the required warm tone direction.

Which BLONDME products are suitable for warm blond results?

BLONDME Bond Enforcing Premium Lightener 9+ toned with BLONDME Blond Toning Caramel, Strawberry or Apricot.

Remember: additional warm tone mixes can be found in your Schwarzkopf Professional BLONDME shade guide.


When to lift?

BLONDME Bond Enforcing Lifting Sand and White Blending Caramel, lifting up to 5 levels, are ideal for intense blond tones on bases 6 and lighter. Using BLONDME Bond Enforcing Lifting Sand, on a natural base 5, gives a wonderful medium to dark caramel and toffee blonde tone.

Subtle strawberry, rose, peach or amber blond tones can be created by combining, for example:

  • BLONDME Bond Enforcing Lifting Sand mixed with BLONDME Blond Toning Strawberry, Apricot or Caramel
  • BLONDME Bond Enforcing White Blending Caramel mixed with BLONDME Blond Toning Apricot for soft copper blond tone effects
  • BLONDME Bond Enforcing White Blending Irise with BLONDME Blond Toning Strawberry
