As the seasons begin to change, you’re no doubt thinking about giving your look a little refresh. But instead of choosing a ‘do suitable for summer or winter, you need a style that’ll look stunning come rain or shine! Don’t think such a style exists? Then you need to get better acquainted with platinum blonde hair.
Reigning supreme on the catwalks and red carpet, platinum blonde hair has been seen everywhere – and we can’t get enough! So, whether you want to replicate a Hollywood siren or channel your inner cool-girl, you need to give one of these 21 platinum hairdos a go.
Bold and beautiful platinum blonde looks
1. Contrasting roots
If you have naturally dark hair, but want to experiment with a lighter hue, then why not opt for this contrasting roots hairstyle, as see on Olivia Wilde? Ask your stylist for a drastic ombre to get a striking contrast or, for a less dramatic finish, go for a graduated balayage.
2. Flicked ends
If you’re not totally keen on poker-straight hair or loose waves, perhaps you can go for this flicked-out hairstyle. It’ll help soften the effect of your platinum hue, and provide a youthful and feminine touch to any look!
You can create this look in two ways; using a barrel brush to curl the ends in an outwards and inwards direction when blow-drying, or simple use straighteners to curve the ends of your hair. It honestly couldn’t be more simple!
3. Platinum pixie
Pixie haircuts have already become one of 2017s most sought-after hairstyles, thanks to A-listers like Cara Delevingne and Katy Perry. So, it comes as no surprise that merging the hottest hue with the hottest cut equals one showstopping hairstyle.
4. Ice platinum braided ‘do
Cara Delevingne shocked the world when she revealed this platinum hue recently. Ditching her dirty blonde long hair for this icy blonde shade marks a turn in the model’s career. We at All Things Hair love that Cara has maintained her signature brows with her new colour.
Editor’s tip: If you are considering opting for a platinum blonde colour like Cara’s, we suggest investing in a shampoo made specifically for blonde hair, like the TIGI Bed Head Dumb Blonde Purple Toning Shampoo. This specially-formulated shampoo is powered by violet toners to banish brassiness and brighten blonde hair.
5. Sleek lob
Jennifer Lawrence is always playing with various blonde shades in her hair, but she always returns to this trusted platinum blonde look! Styling her lob (AKA long bob) in a sleek centre part gives her ‘do a neat and symmetrical finish.
6. Platinum shag cut
Like your style to have an on-trend edge? Then shag haircuts are a top choice for you, as they’ll instantly give you those rocker-chick vibes, pairing perfectly with your white-blonde hue!
7. Curly ombre
For all you curly-haired gals out there, now is the perfect time to test out a platinum colour in your manes. Why? Not only will it make every kink and coil pop, but it will also create a cool contrast when worn with your natural roots on display.
8. Icy babylights
If you already have a naturally light blonde hair, getting on the platinum hair trend is super easy. Simply ask your stylist to add some icy babylights to your hair, using subtle shades of platinum, and you’ll create a delicate 2-toned effect Credit: @melanie_luxehair
9. Karlie’s sharp bob
Never straying far away from her medium-tone blonde mane, Karlie Kloss shocked us all when she stepped out at the 2017 Met Gala. Just like Kylie Jenner, Karlie sported a new platinum hue complete with a sharp bob cut and we love it.
10. ’90s crimped locks
When having platinum blonde hair isn’t enough to curb your hair appetite, why not up your hair game with a throwback style, like this crimped hairstyle? Nostalgic trends have been spotted everywhere as of late and just so happen to look incredible with a modern platinum hue!
Editor’s tip: When using heated styling tools on your mane, first spritz your strands with the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Heat Protection Mist. This will not only shield your tresses against heat and friction, but also give up to 2x longer colour fade protection.
11. Short pixie

Editor’s tip: If this wavy and chic look has tempted you to dye your locks, don’t forget to invest in a shampoo specially designed for blonde hair. We suggest trying the TIGI Catwalk Fashionista Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner, to help you keep your tresses wonderfully bright.
14. Long and sleek
For long-haired ladies, you have a host of various hairstyles you can try; elegant updos, Rapunzel length braids or glamorous blowouts. But guess what? Our all-time fave way to work long locks is sleek and straight, further elevated with a platinum blonde hue.
