30 Irresistible Bronde Hair Looks to Inspire Your Next Colour

With looks from Gigi Hadid, Kaia Gerber & co.

A delightful mix of both blonde and brown hues, bronde hair is a hair colour which incorporates both shades, often through either balayage or highlights. The combination can be tailored to your hair type and individual style preferences, which means anyone can get on board with the trend.

So to help you shake up your mane, we’ve rounded up 30 of the hottest shades of bronde that’ll help you transition seamlessly with the seasons. Better start booking those hair appointments now!

Lily Collins

Looking just as stylish as her Emily in Paris character, Lily Collins switched up her usual rich chestnut brunette for a lighter, sunkissed bronde.

Kylie Jenner

Ever the hair chameleon, Kylie Jenner debuted this reddish bronde look on Instagram and it’s all the summer hair colour inspiration we need.

Kaia Gerber

If you’ve got short hair and fancy sprucing up your style, give bronde a try. Unlike some colouring techniques which require mediumlong tresses to fully benefit from the contrasting hues, Kaia Gerber proves that bronde hair can work even on the shortest of bob cuts.

Feeling a little apprehensive about dyeing your brunette locks? Then you need to take a leaf out of Sofia Vergara book, whose flattering yet understated take on bronde balayage hair is the perfect entryway for hair dye newbies.

Editor’s tip: Whichever shade of bronde you decide to go for, don’t forget to switch up your hair care system for one that’s specially designed for coloured hair. Our favourite? The Dove Colour Care Shampoo and Conditioner, as it helps hair look frizz-free, all while helping maintain your hue’s vibrancy.

Gigi Hadid

There are several reasons that we love Gigi Hadid’s bronde mane. First, it’s a more toned-down take on blonde that requires far less maintenance and looks almost as if it could be totally natural. But also, it’s a great way to transition your hue from summer into the autumn/winter months without completely ditching the blonde.
