Whether you made it all the way to a level 8 blonde base with what seems like minimal effort, or whether it has been a real mission we’re here to tell you that you may have just doubled your colour options and we can’t wait to share them with you!
If anyone has bleached their hair to this level, then we can relate to this yellowy toned base colour with you. Applying Manic Panic on bleached hair provides much better performance from your chosen colour as the hair is a lot more porous making it easier for it to absorb and keep the colour lasting for longer.
It is extremely common to achieve yellow blonde hair when bleaching and lifting it to this level. This canvas can be used for many Manic Panic colours, but due to the yellow tones that may be present throughout your hair; we suggest choosing colours that will work to offset these brassy tones. When it comes to picking your new colour, it is very important to consider your base as many problems can be resolved with the right shade and mix!
A level 8 base colour allows for many shades to appear more vibrant, however, the Manic Panic pastel range will still not be a successful option. Not to fear! Take one of your warmer shades that compliment your yellow tones and add some of the Manic Panic Pastel-izer to create your own custom-mixed pastel shade but with extra pigmentation!
Dyeing your hair at home, it can be difficult to know which colours will do the best on your hair. We tend to look to the colour wheel a lot, especially when working with yellow blonde hair as these tones can create some undesirable colours when using particular shades. If you were looking to go blue, some of our shades such as Manic Panic After Midnight on bleached hair can look beautifully vibrant, especially with its rich shimmering blue tones. However looking at the colour wheel, we can see that blue and yellow make green so you are at risk of your hair turning green as it fades. To avoid this, you will need to tone the yellow from your hair before applying the Manic Panic colour to create an even base.
Think you’ve got a good idea of what you might need to look out for with your level 8 base? Check out the Manic Panic colour recommendations we’ve picked out for all our bleached blonde babes! Remember, everyone’s outcome will be different as no two base colours are exactly the same. We highly recommend doing a strand test to ensure the colour you get will be the colour you want!
If you find that you’re just not sure if your hair is the correct colour for your desired look, we highly recommend performing a strand test so you can test your result before committing to a full-head application.
