The current stream of "new year, new me" posts on our feeds suggests that multi-hyphenate Margaret Zhang won't be the only one rocking blonde hair for 2017. Next to shoulder lengths and full fringes, many are calling that a drastic color change is in order. And we say drastic because it's a transition that you need to prepare for and mull over.
First things first: Don't bleach your hair at home. Do your research for which hair salons can give you exactly what you want for the best price. It's worth noting that a bleaching job that will make you happy won't come cheap, but will surely be worth the splurge. Study the ropes on maintaining bleached hair in advance, too. Hydrating hair products, retouch appointments, and many others are crucial for a new blondie. Lastly, we suggest trying on a blonde wig for size. If doing all of the above raises any doubts, then maybe you should save the bleaching for another time.
