Simply dying your hair from brown to blonde is not as easy as it sounds. To ensure you look your best, you have to pick the perfect shade and tone of blonde. If you pick the wrong shade or tone, you can end up looking washed out, pale or even have your skin look gray. With the help of L'Oreal's Hair Colorist, Christophe Robin, you can pick out your perfect shade of blonde right online.
