How to Get Perfect Platinum Blonde Hair

Let’s be honest, platinum blonde is a drastic change, especially if a client has brown hair, but it’s a hair color that suits almost everyone. It illuminates and highlights natural beauty and, when done well with the right products (MAGNET, Nutri Color Filters™ and Color Excel Gloss by Revlonissimo™) it’s a great hair color. Let’s take a look at how to get the perfect platinum blonde hair.

Assessment and Preparation

What type of hair are you dealing with and what is its color history? This is definitely the most important thing when it comes to creating platinum blonde hair. Natural brown hair is not the same as color treated hair. The bleaching process and its formulation changes from one person to the next so you should use Magnet™ Ultimate Pre-technical Equalizer to protect the hair fiber.

Bleaching and Shading

If you are going to work with a natural brown hair base 5 and you want to achieve a cool platinum blonde, you will need to bleach the hair (first the ends, then the roots) with Magnet™ Blondes Ultimate Powder 9 mixed with Magnet™ Blondes Oil Developer to 10 vol., and then to .11 of Color Excel Gloss by Revlonissimo™. In the case of lighter hair, you can bleach it with Magnet™ Blondes Utimate Powder 7. Ammonia-Free. If the hair has been previously colored (especially with dark tones), you must explain that the lightening treatment should be done several times to avoid breakage. Always apply Magnet™ Ultimate Technical Additive so that the hair remains protected during this process.

Types of Platinum Blonde

There are as many ways to create platinum blonde hair as there are creatives in the world. But we’re going to make it easy for you and present the best techniques for platinum blonde hair.

  • Platinum Balayage: changing radically to full platinum blonde is something that can be frightening. However, with the Balayage technique there are multiple possibilities and nuances with which to create dazzling platinum blonde tresses.
  • Full platinum blonde hair: if you are looking for an eye-catching look, take the leap and do a perfect full bleach (always remember to protect the hair from breakage with MAGNET products).
  • Warm platinum: for looks where you want to mix cold and warm shades, use the shades .123 and .31 of Color Excel Gloss by Revlonissimo™, which creates a platinum blonde mane with lots of dimension and a natural look.
  • Silver platinum: if cooler shades are what you want, there is nothing better than a silver tone. Mix white tones with gray tones to achieve this vibrant platinum color.

Tips for Maintaining Platinum Blonde Hair and Keeping It Healthy

Platinum blonde hair is one of the most maintenance-intensive looks (even more so in summer) but it looks so good! With these useful tips and great products, you can make maintaining it a breeze!

  • Shampoo and hydration: it is of vital importance to care for your new platinum color using purple shampoo. This helps maintain the color and avoid the appearance of yellowish/coppery tones. Using RE/START COLOR Strengthening Purple Cleanser  and Eksperience ™ Color Protection Color Sealing Mask, you will be able to revitalize and protect the hair color. 
  • Nourishing color masks: to make platinum blonde color last over time, it is necessary to apply nourishing masks such as 1011 by Nutri Color™ Filters: Metal-ice. This will create an ultra-luminous effect on the hair. 
  • Cutting and root care: it is essential to regularly cut the ends that look brittle, especially for those who have not made the leap to a pixie cut, which is simpler to maintain, both in the cut and in the growth of roots.
  • Styling: always be careful when blow-drying or heat styling. Especially with flat irons. Platinum hair must be well protected from heat sources, even the summer sun. Platinum blonde hair also retains water well, so always dry it properly before styling.
