1. Champagne blonde

This shade is one of the trendiest blonde hair colors nowadays. It’s light blonde with a touch of light pink. This hint of pink may be so subtle that it’s barely noticeable. It can also appear as blonde mixed with sweet, pastel pink. Your hairstylist may tone down or add more pink to suit your skin tone, but the dominant color is still light blonde.

Editor’s tip: Give colored hair its daily dose of keratin by washing it with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner. These will keep your hair from drying out while making it smooth and manageable.

2. Icy blonde

If you want to go extremely light, icy blonde is for you. It’s so light that it’s almost white. Icy blonde suits women with pale to fair skin tone. To keep your icy blonde hair from getting washed out, choose a layered, edgy haircut like a pixie cut.

Editor’s tip: Play with texture while defining your layers by applying TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax on your icy blonde hair.

3. Sandy blonde

Mix light blonde and a bit of gray, and you’ll get sandy blonde. This shade is perfect if you want a toned down blonde shade for your hair. It gives you an edgy look that goes well with street-style fashion. Complement it with an edgy makeup, too, like dark lips and perfectly applied black eyeliner.


Editor’s tip: Use Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner to guard your locks against dryness while helping your hair color look more vibrant.

4. Platinum blonde

This color is one of the lightest shades of blonde and gives your hair a metallic touch. When going platinum or any light blonde hair, bleaching is required. This can make your hair extremely dry and dull. Avoid damage when getting platinum blonde hair by keeping your hair unwashed a couple of days before your salon appointment to let your natural oils protect your scalp.

Editor’s tip: Restore the health of your tresses and replenish lost moisture by treating it with TONI&GUY Damage Repair Mask

5. Extra light beige blonde

Just like browns, shades of blonde also have warm and cool variants. Extra light beige blonde falls under the cool category, with its pale golden hue reminding you of the dolls you used to play with when you were little. You can play around with this type of light blonde hair by curling it for drama or ironing it sleek and straight to perfection.
