How to wear and maintain wintery ice blond hair

Ice, or white, blond hair certainly makes more of an impact that most colors when you walk into a room. But it's also known as being a challenge to wear, and even more complicated to take care of. We're here to break the urban myth, and give you tips for your wonderfully wintery locks, as would suit any ice queen!

Style inspiration for ice blond hair

A graphic bob or lob (long bob) complements the stand-out shade of ice blond, and can be an effective way of framing your face, especially if you throw in some bangs. When you go to your hair stylist, you may find that s/he wants to trim your hair quite a lot anyway, as you'll need all those dry ends snipped off before you add any color.

A slick, powerful ponytail is a way of working ice blond hair into your professional life. Use plenty of serum to get control of every flyaway, and use a comb to pull the hair back and up before tying in place.

Be inspired by the Queen of Dragons (aka Daenerys Targaryen in "Games of Thrones") and keep your white hair loose and magical. A beach hair spray after washing will give you that deliberately-disheveled finish.

Keep your ice cool

Think cool, not bleak. Ice blond hair can dry out extremely quickly, and requires regular visits to the salon for touch-ups. Alternatively, you could embrace your roots and let your natural shade grow through a little. This works particularly well with strong contrasts.

To keep your hair majestic, apply a weekly leave-in deep conditioner specially formulated for colored hair, and use shampoos like Shine Blonde Shampoo to neutralize any unwanted yellow tones. Hair oils are also a good way of increasing shine, as blond shades risk looking dry and dull if not cared for.

Be sure to use protective oils, or keep your head out of the water if you go swimming, as chlorine can cause color damage and fading. If you're brave enough, stick on a shower cap at the pool!
