1st things 1st, if the the hair is not healthy don’t even consider it, no matter what the shade of hair! Overly processed, distressed or weak hair has never been sexy in any shade of hair color., sexy is shiny healthy hair! (and I love exclamation marks when it comes to this)
2nd thing, when choosing stripes of blondes hair color remember to ensure the direction and color of the stripes are accentuating your hair cut. Stripes have their function in the fashion world, usually in clothing trends horizontal stripes accentuates boyish figures as they ad curves and thickness, and vertical stripes tend to make you look thinner as they make the shape look longer.
