Difference 3: beige blonde requires much more maintenance than ash blonde.

Beige blondes, having a yellowish-brown background, tend to turn coppery on brown bases. Then, they turn to orangey beige, which is not always what you are looking for. And let’s not forget what happens when the hair dye fades because your hair will suddenly turn coppery.

Do you know what will happen if you go for a beige blonde with some highlights?


The contrast between the base color and the highlights will disappear. Then, your color will look even and uniform.

To prevent all this, you have only one way:   strict maintenance, which you should do at least once a month in the salon if you are not a coloring expert. 


On the other corner, you have the ash blonde. It may have blue or green pigments as a base depending on each manufacturer. It’s also the anti-reddish par excellence.

What do I mean?


If your hair has a tendency to oranges, the ash shade will neutralize them into beautiful neutral browns.

But it’s not all good news. As ash blonde is a cool shade with green or blue pigments,  special care must be taken when applying it to blonde hair. 

This is even more important if you have bleached your hair, as it’ll be in a very porous state. Being very porous, the pigments take on a more intense form, leaving your hair bluish or greenish.

What can you do in this case?


Moisturize your hair very well and mix these tones with other base tones to avoid saturation of these pigments.

And if you also want to do some highlights, you should select products that preserve brightness. If you don’t do the proper maintenance, the ash blonde degrades into an artificial and dull mink tone.



One of the most important factors to consider before deciding on ash blonde or beige blonde is the color of your skin and the coloring job you’ll be doing.

If your skin is pale and you like blonde highlights, beige blonde is for you.

If you want to highlight your green or blue eyes, and you want to go for fantasy color highlights, ash blonde can be an interesting option.


As always, I advise you to go to your trusted stylist. Tell him/her your wishes, show him/her photos and everything you can think of that can help him/her create that unique look you’re looking for.

Go for it! Courage always brings the best results.
