Do blondes really have more fun?

Well, it's time to find out, and it's much easier than you think. No need for wash-in hair dye that will stain your towels and your forehead. No need to damage your hair with bleach. All you need is Facetune. 

Whether you just want to try it for fun and want to see the results before committing to proper dye, here's how to get natural-looking blond hair in photos. 

How to Prepare Your Photo

To get a natural and realistic final effect, you might need to do some pre-editing. 

First, check how bright the photo is. Dim, low lighting makes it hard for the app's algorithms to identify where your hair starts and ends. Try using the Brightness and Contrast tools to ensure the outline of your hair is clearly visible. 

If you want to make some reshaping edits to your face and hairline, you should also do this before changing your hair color. 

Your photo should look as natural as possible before you change the hair color. If you edit your photo unnaturally, you may not be able to tell if the blond hair actually suits you or if it suits the edited version of you! 

Editing Blond Hair

Once you're happy with your basic edits, it's time to give your hair a makeover. In the Hair menu, select the Recolor option.

Here, you can choose between bright blonde, strawberry blonde, or light blonde hair filters. These filters will be applied automatically to your existing hair color. 

The Blend tool can be used to create a subtle, natural look. Or use it to give yourself a total platinum-blond hairdo.

You can also use the Glow tool to add extra light and brightness to the blond hair filter. This will increase the highlights to help your hair look bright and real rather than dull and boring.

Show Off Your New Hair!

With your new blond hair, save your edits and share your new look online. If you can't quite get the natural look, try adding another filter over the whole photo. A warm, glowy filter like the golden hour filters in Facetune can bring the photo together and ensure your new hair color doesn't feel fake or overpowering.  

The real question is this: How many likes on that photo will it take for you to dye your hair blond in real life? Let us know in the comments!
