10 Strawberry Blonde Hair Color Pegs to Try Now

Not quite red, not quite blonde--let’s take a closer look at the hair color enigma that is strawberry blonde.  

Strawberry blonde is a warm shade that’s closer to red than it is to blonde, and a lot of people confuse the two. It is usually defined as the lightest shade of red, with some copper or blonde tones in it. Some, however, say it’s a shade of blonde with warm reddish tones.

Whether you’re looking for a light red shade or warm blonde hair color, strawberry blonde is worth giving a try. Here are pegs on how to rock this look.

1. Light Strawberry Blonde

This creamy blonde shade has the faintest tinge of peach–it’s probably the lightest you can go while still staying within the boundaries of “strawberry blonde.”

Editor’s tip: In order to get light hair like this, you need to bleach your hair. This can cause extreme damage, that’s why we recommend using Dove Keratin Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner. It has keratin-infused capsules that go deep into your strands to repair your hair from within. It leaves your hair recovered, beautiful, and resilient to future damage. 

2. Deep Strawberry Blonde

Don’t want to go totally blonde? A deeper strawberry blonde shade, like this reddish brown hue, is a great choice if you’re not yet too keen on light-colored locks. This shade is also more forgiving when it comes to your roots’ growth, making it a good pick for busy girls who just don’t have the time to color their hair often.

3. Bright Strawberry Blonde Hair Color

This vibrant reddish-blonde color is equal parts cute and edgy. Pair it with a short or medium-length haircut for a fresh look.

Editor’s tip: Keep your bleached hair from turning brassy over time by 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 you can enjoy your beautiful blonde hair for longer. 

4. With Dark Roots
