Dark Blonde Hair Color Ideas to Try

Go for one of these dark blonde shades in your next hair makeover!

Getting dark blonde hair is a good idea when you want to lighten your black or brown hair without going to the extreme end of the hair color spectrum. Dark blonde hair colors also allow for low to medium maintenance. They can seamlessly blend with your naturally dark hair color, unlike lighter colors like platinum blonde and icy blonde, which create a sharp contrast when your hair starts growing.

There are several ways to wear dark blonde hair, and we’ve rounded them up for you to give you some inspiration. Check them out.

Ashy hair colors are super uso these days. They’re edgy and they’re flattering for any skin tone. With ash blonde, your hair gets a sophisticated hue that’s a balanced mix of golden and gray. And whether you style your hair or not, ash blonde gives oomph to your look.

Editor’s tip: Blonde hair tends to go brassy over time, that’s why we recommend using TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Shampoo and TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Conditioner. This duo has purple formula that neutralizes brassy tones, so your blonde hair stays beautiful for longer. It also has jojoba oil to help keep your hair moisturized and shiny. 

2. Bronde Hair

One of the most popular dark blonde shades is bronde, which is a combination of brown and blonde. It gives your hair a sun-kissed color, and it also works well as highlights for dark hair. You can also leave your roots untouched, because this shade is still pretty close to Asian women’s naturally dark hair color.

3. Buttery Blonde With Dark Roots

Start applying this warm blonde hair color a few inches from your roots to add depth and drama to your ‘do. Then, glam it up by creating loose waves using a curling iron.

Editor’s tip: Bleaching opens up the hair cuticle, which protects the surface of the hair, to allow the new hair color to come in. This causes damage, so we recommend using Dove Keratin Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner to help bring it back to its healthy-looking state. This conditioner has keratin-infused serum capsules that go deep into your hair to repair damage from within. It leaves your hair recovered, beautiful, and resilient in just one minute. 

4. Blonde and Brown Balayage

Balayage is a hair coloring techniques that involves hand-painting the colors on your hair to create dimension. The result features a more natural and seamless transition between the dark and light colors, like these blonde highlights over a brown base.

5. Deep Strawberry Blonde

If you like dark blonde in small doses, you can have the color graze small sections of your hair, then apply more of it to the tips. It’s dramatic, and the subtle highlights add depth to your dark hair. You can also add light blonde colors to the sides of your hair to create chic, face-framing highlights.

7. Ash Bronde
