Everyone knows that the fair-haired folk have more fun but, it’s not easy being a blonde bombshell, especially with the imminent season of sun, surf and chlorinated pools on the horizon. However, with the right colourist in your corner, the flaxen holy grail is well within your reach. For an outcome that is anything but brassy, you’d be wise to leave your locks in the hands of the best in the blonde-obsessed biz.
