When you want to be really blonde or you are not very light naturally, an on the scalp bleach is the only thing for it. Once your hairdresser has got you to as light as your hair will go a bleach will generally be followed by a "toner" to give you a multitude of differing hues from ash to a soft pink! It's good when booking to ask if the price you are quoted is inclusive of the toner as this is often charged for separately. You will often need to have a treatment during this process as well so ask for a price on that to. In salon time about 2 hours then add the time it takes to get a cut.

At home bleaching is not something I would recommend unless you really know what you are doing. So many things can go wrong and due the strength of the product the end result can be the your hair and you part company literally. Over the years I have seen everything from bright orange to cannery yellow and sometimes all on the same head, to frizzy fried ends and stripes of various blondes along the hair length, all from bad home bleaching attempts! Oh and don't get me started on the scalp sores!!

The Positives:

  • If you are dark and want to be blonde this is the only way to do it.
  • A strong statement can be made with this look.
  • Bleach is one of the few ways to go lighter if your hair is already coloured.
  • If your hair is limp this tends to give it some texture as it makes the hair feel coarser.

The Negatives:

  • If you have a sensitive scalp this can be very uncomfortable to have done.
  • Only suitable for shorter hair as is pretty harsh and the condition of your hair will suffer as it gets longer.
  • The re-growth can be very noticeable depending on how dark you are naturally.
  • Needs to be re-done every 5 weeks if you are not into the darker roots look.


Toners are actually semi-permanent or temporary colour's that last longer than they would normally when applied immediately after a chemical lightening process like highlights or a full-head bleach. They are really good to take away that "just been coloured look" or when a blonde is "that bit too yellow". A multitude of differing hues can be achieved from ash to a soft pinks and papayas!
