This colourist's tip for anyone going blonde is a MUST before you choose your shade

Blonde gals and their hair - truly the most beautiful and toxic of relationships.

Like any bad boyfriend, dyeing your hair blonde will break your heart and leave you out of pocket but will always make you come back for more.

It's a big undertaking but there's a reason so many of us do it.

We're now coming into the season when lots of folks will be considering lightening their hair, be it with some subtle balayage or a full head of meche.

There's plenty to know before you take the plunge but one clever piece of advice that we've never heard before is to make sure that your blonde colour will have the same balance of warm, cool and neutral tones as your skin.

Beverly Hills colourist Matt Rez's rota of clients includes everyone from Ashley Benson to Lili Reinhart and Camila Mendes.

Something to discuss with your hairdresser, then.
