1. Be prepared…

To get your tresses white blonde, your colourist will probably use bleach to achieve the pure-looking finish – so bear this in mind when thinking about jumping on this hair trend bandwagon. Not sure what bleaching actually entails? Well, before bounding off to the salon, read our article on hair bleaching, here, to swot up on everything you should know before embracing white blonde tresses! Credit: @sollebijoux

2. Don’t expect white blonde hair in a flash

While anyone can rock this beautiful hair hue, just remember that the lighter your current hair colour, the fewer treatments it will need to attain your desired shade. So, if you’re already a natural blonde, jumping to white will only require a couple of sessions, whereas for dark haired beauties, the leap will be much bigger. Your hair stylist may also suggest a more gradual hair dyeing process, allowing you to achieve the bright white look over time, and helping to minimise the negative impacts of bleaching on your tresses. Credit: @lushairdesignwilloughby

3. TLC is paramount

If you do decide to go white blonde this winter, then don’t forget that you will have to give your hair some extra TLC. Because, like with most chemical hair treatments, dyeing your tresses can leave it prone to dryness and damage. So, first thing’s first: give your coloured tresses a periodic treat, with a conditioning hair mask – trust us, your locks will be practically thanking you for the pamper sesh! Credit: @haileygubbelsmua
