Going Blonde: Find Your Perfect Shade

Getting that perfect shade is all about balance. Be sure to choose cool, pale tones if you have fair skin and warm, deep colors if your complexion is darker.  Remember, the best blonde hair color is multidimensional to give depth and richness to your look.  A large wash of blonde can be boring unless there are darker and lighter strands throughout your hair. When you talk to one of our artists about blonde hair and which shade of blonde is best for you, keep an open mind if they suggest weaving three different shades throughout your hair, or suggest incorporating both highlights and lowlights however subtle they may be.

Anybody can go blonde, it's about finding the right shade to make you look fabulous. You can go from very dark hair to blonde hair, but it may take a few sessions.  Or perhaps you were born a true blonde but your blonde hair needs a boost. If you are unsure about what blonde hair color is best for your eyes and skin tone, don't worry. Each hair color appointment starts with a free consultation.

Going Platinum and Icy Blonde

Going platinum certainly makes a statement. And depending on your natural hair color, going platinum may be more of a journey than a destination.  We are the blonde hair experts and if you want to go from very dark to very light, we can get you there, but keep in mind it may not be achievable all in one trip to the salon.  Take your time and do it right, and enjoy all the shades in between.  Watch this short video as Damaris at Monaco Salon explains the journey to platinum blonde hair.

Different Shades of Blonde Hair

Dimensional Blondes
True blonde hair is multidimensional so the best way to reproduce that look is to give depth and richness to your color. A large wash of blonde can be boring unless there are darker and lighter strands throughout your hair. When you talk to your stylist about blonde hair and which shade of blonde is best for you, keep an open mind if they suggest weaving three different shades throughout your hair, or suggest both blonde highlights and lowlights however subtle they may be.
Don't you hate that expression?! Bronde sounds much more elegant! If you have dirty blonde hair - lighter than brown but blonde is a stretch - lightening up can be a beautiful compromise. Your stylist will use your natural skin tone as the guide to finding your best complementary shade of blonde. If you have warmth in your skin, go for a cool blonde, or if your skin has cool undertones, warm it up with a honey blonde or caramel blonde. Go for highlights and lowlights, keeping your darker blonde base but adding in some lighter blond for variation. This will give you a fresh, new look that you’ll want year round.
If you are going for a more edgy look, going platinum is a good way to make a statement. Be careful though, not everyone should be wearing platinum blonde hair. A way to keep it chic is by pairing a pixie cut with your statement color to keep your hair from looking overdone and washed out.
These blonde shades take an expert eye and professional lighteners to lift your hair to that perfect undertone. Warm, honey tones and champagne tones can be achieved.  Talk to your color expert and feel free to show pictures of the colors that you like. You'll get an expert opinion on what will look best on you and how your hair will lift during the lightening process.
Babylights are subtle, blended highlights that resemble the natural blonde hair of childhood. Teasylights are also very subtle and like babylights, they remain hot trend for blonde hair color in Tampa for those that like their highlights to melt in with the rest of their hair color.  The overall look is lightened and lifted without obvious streaks of blonde.
The look of a darker root, or shadow root, is also a big trend. It not only adds beautiful dimension to blonde hair but it also makes for a low maintenance look because you can go a bit longer in between color appointments.
Add a little fun with color with subtle accents of pink or purple highlights or an all over opal effect to your icy blonde hair! Not sure which accent color is best for you? Just ask one of our hair color experts.
Don’t let the blondes have all the fun. Highlights are a great way to add dimensional color to brown hair too. With so many looks to choose from, ask your stylist about balayage, color melt, ombre hair and handpainting.
Extreme lightening is possible.  If you have very dark hair and would like to go blonde, talk to one of your blonding experts.  They will tell you what you can reasonable expect.  Anything is possible, it just may not be possible in just one appointment.  Consider adding Olaplex to your extreme lightening service to protect your hair and avoid damage.

Taylor at the Bay to Bay location did my highlights and color melt. I wanted to go icy blonde with darker roots, and I'm in love with what she did for me! I haven't been to a professional salon for anything in years, and it was such a great experience. I was comfortable, the salon is gorgeous, and Taylor is super nice and communicates everything in a way that's easy to understand how/why the process works the way it does. I left feeling so confident and absolutely in love with my new color. She went above and beyond for me and really made the experience better. Taylor is changing locations to the Dale Mabry salon and I made sure to make my 6 week follow up appointment there with her so I could keep her as my stylist. For a first time at a real salon in years- it was truly the best it could've been.

Amazing top of the line service experience and salon experience at Monaco! I loved it! Dillon k did an amazing job to my hair and the blending of my hair and correcting my blonde job!! Seth and Lauren who also assisted were so sweet and also so helpful as well. The amount of time all three spent on my hair and explained the whole process and what products will help my hair grow and stay protected was very informative as well. Any questions I asked they always answered with such a positive tone. Definitely coming again! Thanks Dillon K for squeezing me in and helping me out with my hair and for Seth and Lauren who assisted!

First of all, I wish to apologize for taking so long to write this review. I was having a blast enjoying my "new do with attitude". I want to thank Dillon for starting that new attitude! I am 62 years young and had recently had gastric bypass surgery. One of the major side effects is hair loss. With fine thin hair to begin with, this was very depressing for me. My husband and I were RVing through Florida and I found Monaco on Yelp. The best decision I ever made. I walked out a new woman...at least 10 years younger! Laurie, I want thank you as well. I still want to adopt you. Everyone was so nice and efficient. Most important to me, they made me feel very safe making the decision to go from mousey brown to PLATNUIM BLONDE! I have never received so many compliments in my life! Happy!

I have been to numerous salons/hairstylists everywhere and this has been the best place in Tampa! I'm not exaggerating when I say this, but people have messed up my hair and I always have to come back for color correction. My hair is naturally black, but of course, I don't like my natural color, so I always try to get highlights. Ever since I went to NYC to get my hair highlighted, no one can match that UNTIL I met Dillon at Monaco Salon in Tampa!! He is ABSOLUTELY the best!! The first time I came to him was bc I walked out of a salon with 7 different colors in my hair and bc the salon was closing, they didn't even blow dried my hair! The next time, I couldn't get an appt with Dilon, I was stubborn to go to another salon in Tampa and my hair also ended up having 3 different colors with the front of my hair around my face was yellow/white bleached blonde! Then I politely told the other stylist that I can't have my hair look like that, so she scheduled me for the week, which she ended up not asking how I want it to be fixed, and then my hair turned black and darker than my original hair color! I told her before that I don't like my hair black, red or bleached blonde. Anyway, I'm done looking for a stylist in Tampa!! Going back to Dillon/Monaco, the place is very welcoming. I like the setup they have where you can see the Color Bar while they're mixing the colors. I had to wait a little bit for Dillon to finish working with another customer, but it was WELL WORTH IT!! (You can't rush this stuff and I wouldn't want him to.) He really listened to what I had to say and I like his personality--He is also honest, so talented, funny and gives you advice on what to do without pushing you to buy any of their product line, etc. It also made me feel like he took me in as a "lost puppy" waiting to be saved, haha!! I'm usually open to different styles/colors, but not when the stylists do not listen and let me leave the salon looking a "hot mess"! lol. I hope Dillon never leaves, because like I said, he got the hair color I wanted the first time around, which NEVER happens to my hair. He also cut/styled it and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED (and still do love) IT!!!!!! Thanks so much Dillon!! See you next time!! (:
