Color Me (Very) Blonde: 10 Smoking Hot Platinum Blonde Shades to Try
 

Platinum blonde is a highly-coveted shade. Did you know that even the Ancient Greeks and Romans bleached out their hair? Many suffered hair loss and resorted to wearing wigs made from the hair of blonde slaves.

The word blonde dates all the way back to 15th century England and is one of the few words to retain separate masculine (Blond) and feminine (Blonde) designations. While blondes can be found in all parts of the world, only 2% of the worlds population remains a natural blonde as an adult.

The evolution of light hair is related to the bodys synthesis of Vitamin D. Lighter hair and skin allow more sunlight to trigger the production of Vitamin D, which explains why more natural blondes are found in Europe and other sunlight-deficient areas.

If youre ready to take your hair to the next level of blonde; talk to your stylist. You wouldnt want to find yourself with an orange mess or worse yet, no hair at all. Ask your stylist to determine the right tone of platinum blonde for your skin and hair type. Be sure to nourish and repair your hair with reconstructive treatments to maintain good hair health.

Light hair is definitely an attention-getter and is still regarded as a marker for beauty and goodness. And as for all the rumors about blondes having more funtry any of these brilliant platinum shades and find out for yourself!
