Ombre blonde hair looks from Instagram we’re lusting after
1. Ombre blonde babylights
Rather than a harsh fade from dark to light, babylights will pull the colour through the mid-lengths and ends in tiny, almost undetectable streaks, meaning you’ll be left with a completely natural-looking ash blonde ombre result. Credit: @brisaexplainsitall
2. Champagne ombre
Bottoms up! If you’re leaning more towards a classic, yellow-toned blonde, this Instagrammer’s champagne ombre blonde is the colour for you.
A more flattering option for those with warmer, medium complexions, this shade won’t wash you out or look out of place with a tan. Now who could argue with a colour like that?! Credit: @studioindulgesalon
Editor’s tip: Whichever blonde takes your fancy, remember to switch over to a specialist wash and care set to really get the most of your colour.
The Toni&Guy Illuminate Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner, for example, helps to maintain and accentuate any highlights (both natural and dyed) while also leaving your locks super glossy and healthy-looking.
3. Charcoal ombre
The grandma-chic grey hair colour trend is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon – so if a more alternative look is what you’re after, why not give it a try?
This deep, charcoal ash blonde ombre is something a bit different, with the dark base making it a low-maintenance way for those with naturally brunette locks to pull off a blonde hue. Credit: @xcellentbeautysalon
4. Pearlescent blonde ombre
The pearl hair colour trend is one of our favourite colour crazes to come out of 2017 so far, so why not nod to the trend with a pearlescent ombre blonde hair look?
Blonde with a touch of shimmering silver, this dazzling shade is sure to turn heads and get you tonnes of compliments. You could even take it one step further and throw some on-trend pearl hair accessories into the mix, too! Credit: @sophiehairdresserx
5. Golden blonde ombre
Channel your inner surfer girl this summer with a golden, sun-kissed style. Ideal if you’re looking for a way to wear ombre hair for blondes, you simply need to add in some multi-dimensional golden tones to take your look from Barbie to Baywatch in a classy way. Credit: @hairbybrittah
6. Lilac ash blonde
You know we’re big fans of coloured tresses here at All Things Hair HQ, so obviously we couldn’t do an ombre blonde hair round-up without getting a little jazzy!
On first glance, this Instagram beauty seems to have a classically creamy blonde, but upon closer inspection you’ll see that she actually has some ever-so-subtle lavender tones running through her ends, which gives the look a pastel, springtime look! Credit: @stephhdez_
7. Reverse blonde ombre
Why follow the crowd? Flip your style this season with a topsy-turvy reverse ombre blonde look. Fading from an ultra-light platinum shade to a warmer, more brunette blonde at the ends, it’s unique but still totally wearable, too. Credit: @missellemaria
8. Nordic blonde ombre
Ever since Game of Thrones‘ Khaleesi entered our lives, our love for Nordic-inspired white ash blonde ombre has reached new levels of obsession.
While this is one of the more high-maintenance options (as regular root touch-ups will be required to keep this bright white looking its best), let’s face it, it’s totally worth it! Credit: @clare.es
Editor’s tip: With silver and white shades of ombre blonde hair it’s particularly important to invest in a purple shampoo, such as the TIGI Bed Head Dumb Blonde Purple Toning Shampoo.
Using this once a week in place of your normal shampoo will help to keep any warm, yellow tones at bay, ensuring your colour is kept cool and ashy between salon visits.
