Ash blonde hair color pegs for your next salon visit

See yourself in one of these ash blonde inspirations for the next time you want to change your hair color. 


They say that when there’s smoke, there’s fire–and ash blonde, the smoky hue that’s all the rage these days, will make your look sizzle!

It’s one of the most requested hair color shades at the salon, and for good reason: This cool-toned hue, a cross between blonde and silver, is extremely flattering. It suits a wide variety of skin tones. It’s more modern and, dare we say it, chicer than the usual yellow blonde shades, but it’s still a head-turning hue. Upgrade your look with one of these looks:

Attending a formal event? A wavy lob elongates your neck and exudes elegance. It’s a hairstyle that works with all colors, but we love how the waves bring out this color’s silver tones.



Editor’s tip: to keep your hairstyle secured to last, mist on some TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on your hair. It gives maximum hold with extra flyaway control, without the stiffness nor stickiness.

Opting for an ombre is another great way to ease yourself into the ash blonde world, and the transition from cool brown to subtle silver is such a great look. It’s a great color for the cooler months ahead.

If you’re thinking of going for a full ash blonde hair color job, this is how it might look when your roots start showing up. Ask your hairstylist to make the color at the roots a bit darker for a milder transition.



Editor’s tip: Bleached hair is also very prone to damage, so keep it healthy by switching to Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner, a sulfate-free conditioner specially formulated to keep colored hair soft and vibrant.
