Most of us Filipinas are natural brunettes and it’s only recently that we have become a lot braver when it comes to choosing different shades of blonde as our hair colors. We’ve slowly started experimenting with “unnatural shades” but we gotta say, we’re totally rocking the funky hair color trends! If you really are going this direction, you have to know that it’s a big big deal for your hair (because of bleaching!), so you have to be sure you know exactly what you want so that all the efforts (not to mention the risk of damaging your hair) are totally worth it.
To get you started, we’ve got here a list of different gorgeous shades of blonde— it should help you decide exactly which one to go for!
Gorgeous Shades of Blonde for Filipinas
Channel the inner ice queen in you and go for a chilling platinum shade. It’s a super trendy color that will give your look a dramatic update, especially if you’re currently a dark-haired hottie. Just a few things to consider though should you choose to go platinum: it would typically take at least two rounds of bleach process to get your dark hair to turn white, so your hair would become more prone to damage.
To make sure your tresses are strong enough to stand all that stress, you have to prep it. About a week or two before your salon schedule, give your hair a few deep conditioning treatments. Getting your hair healthy will help minimize dryness and breakage.
Editor’s tip: Keep your colored hair from getting dry and damaged with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Treatment Mask. It helps bring back lost moisture and shine so your hair remains smooth and soft even after dyeing.
Golden blonde creates a beautiful contrast with dark eyes, giving you a dramatic look especially when you’re going out in the evening. It’s a beautiful classic shade, but for us, Pinays, going for a blonde hair color with a golden tone is a chic way to make a statement.
Editor’s tip: Switch to TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Blonde Brilliance Shampoo once you dye your hair blonde. It has purple formula to keep your blonde hair locks from turning brassy over time. It also has jojoba oil for that extra moisture needed to prevent dryness and dullness.
3. Strawberry blonde
Strawberry is a reddish shade that looks good on those with pale skin because it adds warmth to their skin. If you are a morena though, you might want to skip this shade and go for something cooler.
Ash blonde is quite popular here because it’s easier to pull off than other shades of blonde. It has an ashy or gray tint which suits a lot of different skin tones but looks best on those with a lighter complexion. If you have dark hair, it might need some sort of bleach or peroxide to remove the pigment of your hair so you can achieve the color you’ want. Don’t hesitate to ask your hair colorist to use a conditioning hair color and let him or her know if you experience any sort of discomfort during the process.
This is another shade you can try if you want a low-key blonde color. As the name implies, bronde is a mix of brown and blonde shades that suit almost all kinds of skin tone. Like dirty blonde, you can make your bronde hair more dramatic by getting it ombre- or balayage-style.
7. Honey blonde
Want that just-got-back-from the beach glow? Honey blonde can help you get that. This warm shade goes well with fair and morena complexion, making your skin look sun-kissed.
Editor’s tip: Keep your hair nourished and hydrated by applying Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream. This product helps keep frizz at bay, too.
8. Sandy blonde
This shade of blonde is similar to ash blonde; it just has more hints of gray. The effect as a matte, somewhat coarse-looking hair color that’s both chic and edgy. The contrast between dark roots gives your hair more oomph, so if you want to make a statement, go for sandy blonde.
9. Light Blonde with Dark Tips
We love how cool and stylish this hairstyle is. Instead of staying predictable and usual with a fully blonde mane, you can go for darker tips which are really a nice accent to your hair. It is best if your hair is straight so that they are most visible.
Editor’s tip: As this hair color goes well with straight hair, make sure that your hair doesn’t go dry to help keep it look beautiful. Do use Cream Silk Dry Rescue Conditioner. It’ll feel smooth and soft all day long which, in turn, makes you feel good.
10. Platinum with Pink Inner Color
This is an absolute stunner. You will have people looking admiringly at you not just for having the guts to go blonde but also for the nice pink inner accent. The best thing about this blonde hair is that you can leave your hair messy which lets the pink take a peek wherever they can. Truly beautiful!
11. Silver Blonde
This is definitely a head-turning color. Not everyone has tried it yet, so go for it! The great thing about this hair color is that it isn’t as loud as the regular blonde but is equally stunning.
Editor’s tip: You don’t want your hair to look dull. So, even as you wash it regularly, use Cream Silk Stunning Shine Conditioner. You’ll love how your hair stays moisturized and soft all day.
12. Yellow Blonde
This may look like the usual blonde but if you look more closely, it leans towards yellow which is a nice hue. It even becomes a bit golden when you’re under the sun! This blonde hair accentuates your sun-kissed skin, especially when you’re at the beach this summer!
13. Platinum with Pink and Purple Accents
Gotta love this unicorn color-inspired blonde hair! The pink and purple accents go well with the platinum hue. Plus, the way it is put into a messy updo just complements everything. Everyone will just love to touch your hair and even have their photo taken with you!
14. Fusion of Dark Hues
Try a revolutionary method of coloring hair wherein you put together several dark hues, and get ready to be amazed by the results. Keep the dark colors at the tips and go lighter as get to the higher part of your hair. To be honest, this is one of our favorites!
15. Icy Blonde
Want to try bleached hair? If you’re ready to adopt a more specific hair care routine, then, why not go all the way with the icy blonde color? It’s edgy and chic at the same time and shows off your carefree and vibrant personality. The stares only happen at the beginning, but the happiness and contentment of trying something new last longer.
Editor’s tip: Bleached hair gets damaged and dries more easily which is why you should use Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner. Its sulfate-free formulation makes your hair color more vibrant and protects it from premature fading from the first wash.
16. Light Bronde
Nope, there’s no typo here. It’s really light bronde (brown + blonde) and we’re really head over heels in love with it. This is one of the variations to Catriona Gray’s summer hair color which is bronde. Try this and be amazed to see how your fair skin gets more emphasis.
17. Multicolored Tresses
Can’t make up your mind? Why not try all them colors on your hair and see how beautifully it comes out? The trick is to alternate opposite colors so each of them stands out. You can also go for candy colors so that your hair looks sweet and light.
18. Ombre Pink
If you’ve always been coloring your hair and are bored with the usual techniques, then it’s time to shift to ombre style! It basically uses at least two colors and sort of sections your hair into the colors. Unlike the multicolored tresses, the sections are top and bottom and not side by side. You’ll surely love ombre on your hair and you can experiment with different hues.
Whichever shades of blonde that you’re after, make sure to retain your hair color while at the same time keeping it healthy and moist. Simple routines like using a leave-in conditioner or washing hair with lukewarm or cooler water temperatures could make a huge difference over a long period of time.
Once you fully understand about hair coloring, it’s time to show the world that you, too, can be a blonde bombshell!
