Blondes might be known for having more fun than brunettes or redheads, but you know what isn’t? Deciding on just one shade when there are so many blonde hair colors to choose from. From platinum blonde and champagne blonde to dark roots with Playboy-inspired gold, it can feel impossible to keep up with every different trending hair color—especially when celebrities seem to change their their look every other day.

That said, if you’re already blonde, you might be getting bored of the shade, possibly even wondering if you’re all out of blonde hair colors to try. Or maybe you’re looking for a more low-maintenance look, like dirty blonde, lowlights, or low-key balayage. Whatever the case, you’re in luck: We asked hair experts all about their favorite blonde hairstyles, how to choose your best shade, and what it takes to maintain the look. Here’s what they had to say.

The best blonde hair color for your skin tone

Finding the best shade of blonde for your skin tone might seem intimidating, but all you really need to do to figure it out is identify whether you have a warm or cool undertone. “Generally, people with warm undertones look best with warm blonde shades like honey and golden blonde,” Abby Haliti, French balayage and color expert and owner of NYC’s Abby Haliti Color Studio, tells Glamour. Warm undertones usually have yellow, peachy, and/or golden tones in their skin. “Those with cool undertones, like pink or blue, tend to suit cooler blonde shades like platinum or ash blonde,” she says. Other things to consider, Haliti adds, are your eye color and natural hair color.

“For personalized advice, it’s best to consult a professional hairstylist who can assess your skin tone and help you choose the most flattering blonde shade,” she says.

Blonde hair maintenance and upkeep

To maintain your blonde look, be sure to visit the salon every six to eight weeks for touch-ups and glosses (unless you prefer the overgrown root look, of course). As for preventing brassy tones at home? “Use a purple shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for blonde hair; these products help neutralize brassy tones and keep your blonde color looking fresh,” Haliti says. “Look for ones that are sulfate-free and gentle on the hair.”

Nicole Lucero, a colorist at NYC’s Mahogany Grace Salon, agrees, suggesting washing blonde hair in cool water to help keep the color from fading and using a hair mask once a week. “Protect your hair from UV rays by wearing a hat or using a leave-in conditioner with SPF, and always use heat protectants when styling with hot tools, as heat damage can also cause brassiness,” she says. “Avoid chlorine and salt water, as they can also cause discoloration. Regular trims and toners can help keep your hair healthy and prevent the hair from looking dull.”
