Platinum blonde seems to be the leading trend in hair colours recently as celebs such as Kim Kardashian, amongst others have been spotted rocking this loud and bold hair colour.

Master stylist, Louise Rusk, at Mizu Boston, shares exactly how to gradually lighten your hair and rock it as well as Kim k did.
These expert tips will help you gradually lighten hair for a naturally radiant look.
Think Bright colours (not Necessarily Blonde): Its impossible for every woman to be blonde and not everyone can pull it off due to difference in skin tones. Rusk advices taking your hair a shade or two lighter. This can make a lot of difference but not in a very loud and obvious way. She says, “All hair colors look healthier and shinier with some accent shades of lighter or brighter colors , but On darker hair color, a few neutral brown hand-painted pieces or interior slices can liven up and give some dimension to your hair.”
Sun-Kissed Tones: Aim for colors that aren't too loud for this time of year, to avoid a garish look. “sun-kissed tones give a natural feel with minimum upkeep, plus it looks good on almost everyone.”says Rusk.
Give Your Hair Some TLC: serious damage can be caused to any hair type that is chemically treated. Color-treated hair needs to be treated like a delicate fabric to avoid wear. Always use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner specifically for color-treated hair. Get treatment every few months, and trim your hair regularly to keep those ends strong.
Reverse errors: You can get that pretty, shiny look even after making blunders in choosing hair colours, with a little help from a stylist. “glossing and shine treatments can make your hair look and feel healthy again.”
The goal for every woman should be to simply “soften your base color.” According to Rusk, “It brightness your hair without the high maintenance and adds a few highlights to your hair.
