11 celebs rocking honey brown looks on their Insta grids
Audrina from The Hills has a gorgeous rich honey brown hue which perfectly pairs with her laid-back, Cali beach vibes.
Having rocked so many looks in her time, Beyoncé‘s hair has become a great reference point no matter what look you’re after. But if you’ve got medium-dark skin with deep brunette hair, and you’re wanting to go blonder, it’s especially fabulous…
Editor’s tip: Who wouldn’t want to steal Bey’s style, right? If you do decide to go for a similar look, just remember to switch out whatever hair care you’re currently using with a specialist colour-protect range, like the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Vibrance Protection Shampoo and Conditioner.
Nicole Scherzinger‘s selfies are basically 90% hair. Not that we’re complaining or anything – if our hair was that luscious we’d want to document it too! And while she’s known for her signature long, dark locks, she’s also partial to a bit of blonde, which we just love. Credit: @nicolescherzy
Ombre tips are the no-commitment way to trial a lighter hair colour without too much maintenance.
And one A-lister who knows this is through-and-through brunette Lily Aldridge, who has dipped her toe in the honey brown trend with her warm ombre, opting for a layered cut to accentuate the contrasting shades. Credit: @lilyaldridge
Selena Gomez has been experimenting with blonde for a while now but her pre-platinum, rich brunette is one of our favourites – especially with her full, undone fringe and bombshell blowout. Credit: @marissa.marino
The balayage technique creates a more natural look than traditional ombre so the resulting look is totally seamless and sunkissed. Credit: @shenaegrimesbeech
Jada Pinkett Smith
Between the undercut and the honey hazel hue, Jada Pinkett Smith proves that classic styles like the pixie cut can look just as cutting-edge. Whoever said short hair was boring quite clearly hadn’t seen this style! Credit: @salonchristol
Editor’s tip: Liking Jada’s slick undercut? Use the VO5 Mega Hold Gel Spray to achieve a similar gelled effect at home. This gel comes in a handy fine spray format, so it’s really easy to use and won’t leave your hair feeling sticky.
We’ve always loved Leona Lewis’ natural curls and we admire the way she plays around with lighter tresses to enhance her texture.
If frow-favourite Olivia Palermo gives something her seal of approval – whether that’s this seasons ‘It’ accessory or this honey blonde hair colour – you know it won’t be long until we’re all rocking it.
So, if you’ve always wanted to try this colour but been on edge about committing, take this as a sign that now’s the time. Credit: @oliviapalermo
Currently blonde? Instead of going straight to dark, why not go for something in between the blonde and brown spectrum like Rosie H-W‘s dirty honey hue?
