While a light strawberry blonde colour with golden tones can add a touch of brightness and warmth to anyone’s look, it tends to work best for people with paler complexions (think: Emma Stone and Isla Fisher). As for those with warmer skin tones, a more classic strawberry blonde will be ultra-flattering. To help you figure out which strawberry hue is for you, we’ve pulled together some key info and inspirational styles to ensure you nail the look.
Classic Strawberry Blonde
When it comes to classic strawberry blonde, our thoughts immediately turn to the likes of Amy Adams! Her hue is subtle, glossy and ideal for anyone looking to boost their already blonde locks.
How to style? Hollywood waves never fail to impress on the red carpet and when swept elegantly to the side, this glamorous ‘do will add an angular edge to round face shapes!
Prefer to have those delicious strawberry tones take centre stage? Then opt for a hue similar to this model’s, as it will make any hairstyle pop with warmth and dimension.
But if we had to make one style decision, it would be to get a choppy pixie cut in for added edge and enviable vintage vibes – anyone else getting a Mia Farrow feel here?
If you have naturally darker tresses, why not lighten it to a deep, rich strawberry blonde shade, just like Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie? It’s everything you could possibly want from a hair colour!
Editor’s tip: Already itching to get a strawberry blonde hair colour? We thought so. Which is why we suggest switching to a wash and care system, like the Dove Colour Care Shampoo and Conditioner, to maintain the intensity of your hue, while also leaving hair feeling silky and nourished.
For those with mousy brown tresses, a strawberry hue can be used to lift and add warm to your tresses. Try working it in an ombre technique, with the most intense colours featuring in your mid lengths and ends.
Strawberry Blonde Highlights
Strawberry blonde is a wonderfully feminine shade that will make you look as though you’ve spent all of your days under the sun.
For this post-holiday look, try working in a combination of blonde and strawberry highlights throughout your mane, before creating a big, bouncy blowout for maximum style impact!
Editor’s tip: Want to pull out all the stops with your new hue? Then don’t forget to finish your ‘do by smoothing a few drops of serum, like the TRESemmé Colour Shineplex Serum, through your lengths to add a polished, glossy sheen.
If your hair needs some extra volume and lift, ask your stylist to add some subtle layers to your strawberry blonde hair. As demonstrated above, even in loose pigtails this hue can make your look appear fuller and have more depth!
While strawberry blonde hues are often on the softer side, there are some more vivid than others. And Christina Hendricks’ enviable shade is a prime example; it has the delicate, feminine touch of classic strawberry blonde colours, but the natural pink tones shine through oh-so brightly!
Light Strawberry Blonde
Going for light strawberry blonde hair and want to make an extra big impact with your look? Then how about a retro-tastic perm? This will give your mane a massive boost in the volume department and work to give tonnes of dimension to each of your strands.
As A-listers go, Nicole Kidman is up there with the best of them, having a scooped up an array of accolades for her acting skills. But it’s not just the gripping roles she plays that make us love her so, it’s also because she has the most fabulous strawberry blonde hair of all!
Isla Fisher’s long locks are giving us serious hair envy! The actress has incorporated soft loose waves to her lengthy mane, adding extra depth to her shimming strawberry blonde locks.
One day she has bright red hair and the next it’s a neon hue, we can hardly keep up with Bella Thorne! But on occasion, she has been known to tone things down a notch and rocking a more natural-looking colour – like this deliciously sunny, shimmering shade.
If the idea of a strawberry blonde hue appeals to you, but you’re not feeling the traditional route, why not try working it with the reverse ombre technique? It’ll blend your chosen tones from the top of your mane and seamlessly melt into your natural colour at the bottom. No one will suspect it’s not 100% real!
Millie is often spoiling us with pictures of her fantastic getaways, so it comes as no surprise that she has perfected her tousled, beach-waves look, coupled with a holiday-perfect strawberry hue.
Lindsay Lohan is always transitioning between bold red tones and platinum blonde tresses; but we personally love this go-between, sunkissed strawberry blonde hue the actress returns to time and time again.
Subtle Copper Tones
Adele looks every inch the superstar with this elegant updo. Opting for blonde-toned highlights throughout her mane, the gentle colour has really lifted the singer’s tresses, making her look all the more elegant!
This sweet braided ‘do is an excellent way to show off the flashes of vibrant strawberry blonde that are woven through the ends, for an edgy look that we can’t help but want to recreate!
If you’re feeling brave and are ready to take the colour plunge, go for a root to tip dye job with your chosen strawberry blonde hue.
