White blonde hair, you say? There’s really no denying that most of us associate blonde hues with summertime. And yes, golden hues do seem to go hand-in-hand with warm weather, but this blonde hair trend is very different from the sunny shades of surfers and beach babes.
For this winter hair colour trend, it’s all about cool, white blonde tones that look, well, like snow! So, want to know how to work this icy look best? Then scroll down and see our top tips on how to be a winning winter blonde, now!
Tips and inspiration for rocking white blonde hair
1. Be prepared…
To get white blonde hair, your colourist will probably use bleach to achieve the pure-looking finish – so bear this in mind when thinking about jumping on this hair trend bandwagon. Not sure what bleaching actually entails? Well, before bounding off to the salon, read our article on hair bleaching, here, to swot up on everything you should know before embracing white blonde tresses! Credit: @sollebijoux
2. Don’t expect white blonde hair in a flash
While anyone can rock this beautiful hair hue, just remember that the lighter your current hair colour, the fewer treatments it will need to attain your desired shade. So, if you’re already a natural blonde, jumping to white will only require a couple of sessions, whereas, for dark-haired beauties, the leap will be much bigger. Your hair stylist may also suggest a more gradual hair dyeing process, allowing you to achieve the bright white look over time, and helping to minimise the negative impacts of bleaching on your tresses.

3. TLC is paramount
If you do decide to go white blonde this winter, then don’t forget that you will have to give your hair some extra TLC. Because, like with most chemical hair treatments, dyeing your tresses can leave it prone to dryness and damage. So, first thing’s first: give your coloured tresses a periodic treat, with a conditioning hair mask – trust us, your locks will be practically thanking you for the pamper sesh!
