If you’re thinking of going blonde or are already a blonde and wondering if you should change your shade, then Garnier’s colour expert Lyndell Mansfield shows you how to give yourself a personal colour consultation to help you choose a blonde hair colour that is perfect for you.

My friends admitted I looked like a ghost when I once dyed my hair chocolate brown, so I’ve stuck to varying shades of blonde and have mainly let my hairdresser guide me towards what shade to go for, but it helps to know what works for you (I once had my hair dyed grey, while beauty writer Olivia Allwood-Mallon’s hair was once turned the colour of a Sainsbury’s shopping bag when she reviewed a top Knightsbridge salon for West London Living).

Lyndell advices you to consider your skin tone, the jewellery and clothes you wear, plus how to counteract brassiness and more. A few months ago, I was at a store launch and there were two famous blondes in the room. One (I won’t give her name) had brassy hair which looked in awful condition. In contrast, Gwyneth Paltrow’s hair looked shiny, healthy and the perfect shade of blonde.
