Pamela Anderson has always been known for her bleach-blonde hair; it is undeniably her signature style. However, with the recent release of the show ‘Pam & Tommy’, Pamela has been trending all over again thanks to the iconic blondeness that she carries off so well.
Pamela’s ultra-bright shade of blonde sits within the platinum group and appears mostly untoned. It’s definitely warm and creamy with a carefree finish. At ROAR Hair and Beauty, we have noticed an increase in clients requesting blonde. This often happens as we move towards spring/summer as people want to add some lighter pieces into their hair for that sun-kissed feel. However, this year we have noticed a steeper increase and a lot earlier than usual, it’s definitely the Pamela affect.
Achieving Pam’s perfect blonde is never going to be easy, especially if your client has previously-coloured hair or a darker base. It will take time to gradually lighten the hair to achieve that platinum finish; the key to this trend is patience – both from you as the colourist and from your client!
Blonde is a derivative of yellow, a colour that makes us feel happy and warm, hence the term ‘blondes have more fun’. This pairs perfectly with Pamela’s iconic, carefree, happy-go-lucky attitude! Whether or not blondes do have more fun, they do require more maintenance. However, from a colourist’s perspective, a blonde client is a lucrative client as they are likely to be booked in every 6-10 weeks for root touch ups and refresh. Don’t forget to educate your blonde clients on at-home haircare too – using the correct haircare between appointments is, of course, crucial for all coloured hair, but especially blondes as we approach summer.
