Learn about the different types of blonde colours and what we recommend

There are many people who would like to have blonde hair but are worried because it’s their first time, or they have had a bad experience in the past and want to try again but are afraid to do it.

For those people, we would like to explain more about blonde hair so that you can learn more about it.

What is blonde hair?

Blonde hair colour is a bright colour created by using bleach to remove the pigment from the hair.

Many Japanese and Asian people with dark melanin pigmented hair have black hair, while many westerners with lighter melanin pigmented hair have blonde hair colour with lighter hair colour.

For those of you who would like to try blonde hair in the future, we will now explain the various things you need to know before you do it.

The atmosphere of blonde colour changes greatly depending on the brightness of the base

The blonde colour looks completely different when the colour is put in with one bleach and three bleach.

The brighter the base colour, the clearer and more beautiful the colour will be.

A single bleach can be called a blonde colour, but if you like the western look, you can get closer to it by bleaching your hair twice or more.

The blonde colour can be adjusted in brightness with the toner colour.

The blonde colour can be set lighter or darker depending on the colour of the toner, which is dyed again after the bleaching process.

The key to blonde colour is the initial bleaching process and the colour of the toner.

When these two are combined, it is possible to create a subtle difference in colour.

Types of blonde colours

There are many different types of blondes in the world.

  • White
  • Beige
  • Silver
  • Ash
  • Grey
  • Red
  • Purple
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Pearl
  • Ginger
  • Orange

These are just some of the types, and by mixing them or adjusting the difference in brightness, you can create many different types of blonde colour.

Blonde hair colour is generally a bleached hair colour, so it gives a softer and brighter look than black hair.

If you’re not sure which colour suits you, take a look at the popular blonde colours we’re about to introduce.

The latest blonde colours

The blonde colour can be used in a variety of colour repertoires depending on the number of times the base is bleached and the colour of the toner.

The more times you bleach your hair, the brighter, more transparent and more beautiful the colour will be.

If your hair is damaged and you want a darker blonde look, one bleach is all you need!

Find out which blonde colour is right for you.

White blonde colour


White blonde colour is very popular when it comes to blonde hair for westerners.

The beautiful whitish transparent colour will brighten up your face and make you look like a doll.

To make your hair this bright from black, you will need to bleach it at least 3 times.

If you have strong hair, you may be able to get away with it, but if it’s your first time to go blonde, you may have a hard time.

Ash-blonde colour

A single bleach ash blonde colour can be achieved by increasing the base lightness to achieve a more translucent high light ash colour.

This client only needed one bleach, but the fewer times you bleach your hair, the less damage it will do to your hair and the longer it will last.

Find the brightness that suits you and find your own unique colour.

Beige blonde colour

The beige colour can express a soft impression.

It is a very popular colour in Japan, such as glaze and creamy colour.

The beige colour needs to be bleached to remove the redness, so you will need to bleach your hair at least twice.

The beige colour is easy to match with clothes and make-up, and you can get closer to the hair of a foreigner.

Silver-blonde colour

Balayage highlights/バレイアージュ ハイライト

The silver colour is one of the most popular colours in London.

The silvery colour is achieved by adding a muddy colour such as ash or grey to a light base colour.

This colour also needs to be bleached at least twice, but the result is very colourful and stands out from the crowd, making it very popular.

The colour fades a little quickly, but if you use a colour shampoo, you can enjoy the colour for a long time.

Rose gold blonde colour

The popular rose gold colour is still so far away in Asia, but is quite popular in the West.

The reddish tones of rose and the yellowish tones of gold are mixed together in a bright state to create a soft impression without being too eccentric.

Rose gold is a shiny colour, so it doesn’t look pasty and can create a classy and elegant atmosphere.

How many bleaches are needed to get a blonde colour?


To get a blonde colour, you need at least one bleach.

If you have dark hair, as Asians do, one bleach will give you an orangey colour.

By bleaching the hair more than once, the melanin pigment is removed and the hair is brought to a yellowish state.

In this state, it is easier to get a high light colour, and you will have beautiful blonde hair with a clear look like a real westerner!

Does the blonde colour fade quickly?

If you want to have a blonde colour, the bleaching process will damage your hair.

The cuticle of the hair is opened by the alkaline agent, and the second bleach is much harder on the hair than the first, so the colour tends to fall out more quickly.

The brighter the hair, the more open the cuticle becomes and the more the colour will fall out when it is exposed to water, for example during shampooing.

To prolong the fading of your blonde colour, you should

  1. Use Olaplex when bleaching
  2. Have a darker colour added
  3. Use a colour shampoo at home

It is important to take care of your hair.

If you are going to have a blonde colour, we want you to take better care of your hair than ever before, so we are going to explain in detail what you need to do.

How to care for your blonde colour

Blonde hair is softer and more vulnerable due to the damage caused by bleaching.

This makes it vulnerable to friction, UV rays and heat from the hairdryer, which can lead to breakage and split ends.

Blond hair is also more susceptible to breakage and split ends because the nutrients inside the hair have been drained out.

It is therefore important to nourish and moisturise your hair daily.

In addition, it is easy for the colour to fade, so regularly use a colour shampoo at home to add to the colour that is fading, and the colour will last longer.

It is also advisable to protect your hair with oils and creams to reduce the risk of damage to your hair when out and about.

When washing your blonde hair, do not scrub it, but rather wash it gently, focusing on the scalp, and lathering the hair area.

When drying with a towel, make sure to wrap it tightly to remove any moisture and avoid friction.

How to style a blonde colour

Hair that has been blonde coloured tends to dry out and look dry.

Oil is a very popular finishing treatment for this.

In the case of blonde coloured hair, there is not enough moisture inside the hair due to the effects of bleaching.

You don’t want your blonde hair to look dry and damaged.

The oil finish is highly recommended as it covers the irritation of the hair while making it look shiny.

Tips for doing blonde colour yourself

There are some items that should be checked before going for a blonde colour.

  1. Have you had your hair straightened or permed in the past?
  2. Have you dyed your hair black in the past?
  3. Do you have someone to apply it with you?
  4. Do you have enough colouring agents on hand?

are very important.

We will try to explain each of them in more detail.

Have you had your hair straightened or permed in the past?

Bleaching is very hard on the hair, so if you colour your hair when it is already very damaged, as it is with straightened hair, you may melt or break your hair.

If you have straightened your hair, you should never do it yourself.

If you really want to do it, talk to your stylist and go to a hairdresser.

Have you dyed your hair black in the past?

If you have dyed your hair black in the past, it will always fail if you do it yourself.

If you have dyed your hair black in the past, you may not be suitable for blonde colour.

If you really want to do it, you can use a foreign style gradation by using highlights.

It is not possible to do this by yourself, so please ask your hairdresser.

Can you get someone to colour it with you?

When using self bleach, always do it with someone who can apply it with you, such as a friend or your parents.

If you are using bleach on your own, it will take longer to apply and you may not be able to get the full effect.

If the bleach is not evenly lightened, it will make a difference to the colour that is applied afterwards and the result will be messy.

If you are doing the bleach yourself, make sure you get someone to help you apply it.

Do you have enough colouring agents on hand?

One of the most common mistakes made by self-colourers is that they don’t have enough colourant.

As with all colouring, many self-colourers do it themselves because they want to save money.

However, if the colouring agent is not applied generously, the colour can easily become sparse.

This is especially the case with bleach, as if it’s not applied properly or in the wrong amount, it can easily look like a leopard print from root to tip.

Blonde colour is also popular with men



Blonde colour is becoming more and more popular among men, as is the case with BTS in Korea.

Many men have shorter hair, so they don’t have to worry about damage to their hair as much as women do.

Brighter hair makes you look younger, so blonde hair is for all ages, not just the young ones!

Many people in their 30’s and 40’s go for a brighter colour because they tend to have more grey hair, so having blonde hair makes it less noticeable.

Can’t I get a blonde colour without bleaching?

Bleaching is necessary to get a transparent colour like blonde colour.

Asian people have dark hair, so to get the blonde look, you need to lighten the base black hair.

If you are concerned about pain, we highly recommend using a treatment that minimises the damage of bleaching, such as Olaplex or Fibreplex, as this will cause very little damage to your hair!

How to do and order a blonde colour


If you want to have blonde hair, make sure you find your ideal result in a picture.

Blond hair can be dyed in a variety of different tones and styles, some with a single colour, others with a slightly different design such as gradation or foreign style highlights.

Talk to your hairdresser to find out which colour suits you best.

Some things to keep in mind when ordering at the hairdresser

  • Number of bleaches
  • Use of Olaplex
  • Colour of the toner

It is useful to know about

The number of times you bleach your hair can change the condition of your hair considerably, from one to two, and from two to three.

It’s great to get the ideal blonde hair you want, but it’s no good if your hair falls apart and breaks.

Talk to your hairdresser about how many times you can bleach your hair, depending on your hair’s condition.

When you bleach your hair, make sure you use a bleach treatment such as Olaplex at the same time.

There is a big difference between doing this and not doing it.

If you have bleached hair, it is easy for the colour to fade quickly.

If you don’t want your hair to look yellowish, you can use a darker toner or a complementary colour to avoid the yellowish effect.

An in-depth guide to hair design for long hair

There are many different hair designs for long hair.

You can tie your hair up, straighten it or perm it.

If you are tired of your current long hair, why not try a new hairstyle?

We would like to introduce a variety of hairstyles for those who want to try a new long hairstyle.

Long hair x Hair straightening

The best way to make your long hair look its best is to straighten it.
The surface of the hair will be tidied up and the shine and texture will be improved.

This is highly recommended for those who suffer from frizzy or dry hair.

If you have never had your hair straightener before, you will be very impressed.

Long hair x digital perm

A digital perm is a beauty service that creates large curls in the hair.
Digital perms are done in a similar process to hair straightening and last longer than regular perms.

A digital perm will add movement to your hair and give you a voluminous hairstyle.

It is also easy to style, just dry it and you will have curly hair that looks like it has been curled with an iron.

Long hair x layered cut

If you’re getting a little tired of your long hair, try adding layers around the face to create movement at the ends.

If you have long hair without layers, it will look heavy and not light.

If you have long hair with layers, it is easy to curl with iron and easy to style when tied up.

Long hair with layers can be styled in a variety of ways by adjusting the height of the layers.

Low layers create movement at the ends of the hair, and full layers give a lighter look to the hairstyle.

Long hair x highlights

By adding highlights to long hair, the streaky colour gives movement to the hair.

Depending on the brightness and thickness of the highlights, a variety of designs can be created.

Long hair with highlights looks more beautiful when curled with an iron, so it goes very well with curly hair.

Long hair x blonde hair

One of the best ways to change the image of long hair is to make it blonde.

Blonde hair can change the look of your hair and make your face look brighter.

The blonde hair makes your hair look lighter, so it goes well with both straight and curly hair.

Long hair×Brown hair colour

The combination of long hair and brown colour is common among Asians.

Asians usually dye their hair brown to make it look lighter, as their natural hair is black.

The brown colour is easy to match with the colour of your clothes and can be combined with highlights and perms.

Unlike bleached hair, this colour is less damaging to the hair and is easy for all types of hair to try.

How to care for your long hair

Daily hair care is very important in order to keep your long hair looking good.

Hair is damaged every day by various stimuli.

  • Damage from air conditioning
  • Damage from UV rays
  • Damage from friction
  • Damage caused by shampoo

To keep your long hair looking good, use a heat protection oil before going out to protect your hair from irritation.

Before shampooing, brush your hair carefully and use a mild shampoo such as an amino acid shampoo.

It is best to use a treatment with a repairing effect and to apply it when the cuticle is open.

Afterwards, rinse your hair with a little cold water to close the cuticles and make the treatment more effective.
