Who it works best for

Our number one styling tip for strawberry blonde newbies, is make sure it’s the right shade for you and your skin tone!

While a light strawberry blonde colour with golden tones can add a touch of brightness to anyone’s look, it tends to work best for people who have a paler complexion. As for those with warmer skin tones, a more classic strawberry blonde will be ultra-flattering.

But remember, before you choose a particular shade, it’s well worth asking your stylist for a consultation to get their advice!
