Our Favorite Blonde Hair Colors
1. Platinum Blonde
This pale blonde hair color has a silver, metallic look. It has a cool undertone, but morenas can rock this color by adding more yellow or beige tint to this hair color. The result is a warm hair color that matches their warm undertone.
Editor’s tip: Keep your blonde hair from turning brass by using TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Shampoo. Its purple formula neutralizes brassy tones so you can enjoy your blonde hair for longer. It also has jojoba oil for moisture and shine.
To get the best results, pair TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Shampoo with TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Conditioner.
2. Ice Blonde Hair
Like platinum blonde, this hair color has a touch of silver. However, ice blonde is so pale that it almost looks white. Exude an aura of a snow queen or an ice princess when you get this blonde hue.
3. Sunflower Blonde
This hair color has tints of yellow and pale orange, resulting in a warm blonde hue. Sunflower blonde is a cheerful color, so try this to liven up your look.
Editor’s tip: Bleaching and coloring treatments can leave your hair extremely dry and damaged. Because of this, we recommend using Dove Intense Repair Keratin Tri-Silk Serum Shampoo. It combines the power of keratin, fiber actives, and serum ingredients to instantly repair damage, deeply nourish and protect your hair, and leave it extra beautiful. It also has Keratin Repair Actives that nourish and repair damaged hair from its core to its surface.
After shampooing, use Dove Keratin Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner. It has keratin-infused capsules that go deep into your strands to repair damage from within. It leaves your hair recovered, beautiful, and resilient in just one minute!
This hue is a combination of brown and blonde. Try this hue to go blonde without straying too far from your naturally dark hair color. You can even combine bronde with shadow roots for depth or use it in a balayage hair coloring technique to create a lived-in look.
5. Warm Blonde Highlights
Speaking of a lived-in look, here’s another way to achieve it. Keep your natural hair color on most of your hair, then add warm blonde highlights at the sides and tips. Have your colorist give it a hand-painted look. The result? A natural-looking blend of light and dark shades.
6. Buttery Blonde
This medium blonde hair color has golden undertones. It’s a natural-looking hue that works well with shadow roots or as highlights on your dark hair.
