20 A-list blonde ombre hair looks to inspire
1. Drew Barrymore
California native Drew Barrymore is known for her effortless style and her golden ombre blonde hair only helps to add to her laid-back, beachy vibe.
2. Fleur East
Thought the blonde ombre hair look was just for straight manes? Think again! The truth is that curly, coily and kinky locks can all rock the colour, too- just take look at former X-Factor star Fleur East!
3. Emily Blunt
4. Carly Cushnie
Carly Cushnie’s curly quiff is proof that blonde hair ombre can work perfectly on natural hair! The Cushnie et Ochs co-founder and her warm-toned light brown to blonde ombre is a great example of how to work this colour trend on shorter hair lengths, too.
5. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
6. Lauren Conrad
The best thing about blonde ombre hair? You don’t have to worry about retouching your roots! Laguna Beach and The Hills star Lauren Conrad has always been a bright Cali blonde, but from time to time she’s also opted to rock darker roots with her sunny blonde mane.
We’re not sure whether her grown out roots were intentional or by accident, but either way- they definitely work!
7. Khloé Kardashian
Khloé Kardashian has been seriously smashing the ombre hair game recently! We’re loving her current ashy, light brown to blonde ombre style and it looks flawless against her flawless straightened strands.
8. Suki Waterhouse
Still on the fence about whether or not you should get ombre hair? Brown to blonde graduations like model Suki Waterhouse’s are a great example of how best to take on the trend. The subtle colour fade looks so seamless that we’d almost forgive you for thinking it was her natural hair colour!
10. Kat Graham
Love bangs? Us too! Choppy full fringes like The Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham’s are super flattering on those with oval and long face shapes and adding a light blonde ombre to your tips will help to give your look, even more, shape and body.
Not sure you’d suit blonde hair? Ombre is a great way to trial going lighter with your locks without committing to an allover colour change. If you have dark features, ask your stylist to start your gradual colour fade halfway down your jawline like Cheryl’s for the best results.
12. Gigi Hadid
13. Jaime King
Actress and model Jaime King can do no wrong in the style stakes and her blonde ombre hair is no exception. Pairing her glam-grunge look with a leather tie choker and bomber jacket, this look is right up our street!
14. Kate Mara
Like to wear your hair in waves? Whether your hair has a natural wave or you like to fake it with a curling wand, pretty ombre shades like Kate Mara’s are an ideal way to complement the look and bring out the different tones in your hair.
15. Perrie Edwards
Little Mix star Perrie Edwards is known for being the blondie of the group but who remembers the first time she tried out ombre blonde hair? As stunning as ever, this look really accentuated her baby blue eyes and gave her blonde a fresh, new feel.
16. Rachel Bilson
Rachel Bilson doesn’t seem to have aged a day since her The O.C. days. In fact, with her gorgeous sun-kissed tan and caramel blonde ombre hair, she’s looking better than ever!
17. Sofia Vergara
Ombre blonde hair with face-framing highlights is one of Sofia Vergara’s signature styles. The Modern Family star is a prime example of how much lighter tips can transform your whole look, opening up your facial features and giving you a healthy summer radiance!
18. Zoe Sugg
As the world’s top beauty vlogger, Zoe Sugg (aka Zoella) is pretty well versed when it comes to the latest hair and beauty trends. Her shoulder-length cut and contrasting ombre shade made for the perfect red carpet style and inspired a flurry of teens to try the blonde ombre hair trend!
19. Tia Mowry
Sister, Sister star Tia Mowry is all grown up with a chic, modern ombre look to match! The child star has embraced her gorgeous natural curls in recent years but we’re big fans of her current straight and sleek style, too!
20. Emilia Clarke
Emilia Clarke may rock an icy blonde mane as Daenerys in Game of Thrones, but in real life the star favours a much more natural-looking light brown to blonde ombre lob. We can’t decide which look we love more!
