10 Iconic Ash Blonde Hairstyles To Love Right Now

This season's new cool hue, right this way.

This year, while we still love all the rosy and orangey blonde hair trends surfacing on the Internet, we’re gravitating more towards blonde with grey undertones. If you’re looking for a hair color that’s not white, but also not platinum blonde, dive right into the middle with cool-toned ash blonde hair. Ahead, we’ve rounded up gorgeous ash blonde hair ideas we’re currently swooning over.

10 Cool Ways to Wear Ash Blonde Hair

Read on to get inspired by this collection of hairstyles:

1. Ash Blonde Balayage

No matter how many hair color techniques there are out there, balayage isn’t going anywhere. Balayage is ideal for those who don’t want to go full-on ashy blonde hair but just want enough to make a bold statement in the most natural-looking way. Mix up the look with wavy or curly ends for a more playful and fun approach. To create lots of body and movement within your style, opt for using TRESemmé Volume Pro Pure Foam Shampoo and TRESemmé Pro Pure Light Moisture Conditioner.

2. Ash Blonde Hair Tips

If you’re into this trend and are curious to see how it looks on you, go for a subtle statement with a dark ash blonde hair color on your ends. Opt for a dip-dye technique and add this cool-toned gray hue just at the tips of your hair. The best part: If you grow tired of it sooner rather than later, snip off the ends and start fresh.

3. Warm to Cool

Take your color from warm to cool.

Ash blonde hairstyles aren’t all about stark contrasts between the roots and the ends of your style. Some women are opting to transition from a warm base color to icy cool ends. We love this unique take on the ashy blonde hair trend.

4. A Classic Bob

Try this color with a trendy cut like a wavy lob.

Consider mixing your trendy hair color with a classic bob haircut for a hairstyle juxtaposition we can’t get enough of. Mixing trendy with classic is a great way to take a leap in the hair department without going too far outside of your comfort zone.

5. An Ashy Ombré

Nail two trends in one style.

There’s a reason why almost every single celebrity has had ombré hair at one point or another. Ombre hair is to 2023 what the perm was to the ’80s… and by that, we mean it’s everywhere. Consider this ashy ombré as a way to take a unique approach towards this now-classic style.

6. Messy Texture

Keep your texture messy and edgy.

Wear your fresh, ashy blonde hair color with a messy, curly texture to add some extra edge to your new look. Use your curling iron to create random curls in alternating directions, run your fingers through the curls to give them some loose texture, and skip the hair product to keep your style looking natural.

7. Upgrade Your Curls

Give your natural curls an upgrade.

Give your naturally curly hair an easy upgrade by pairing it with a fresh coat of ashy blonde hair color. We love how the light hues make natural curls really pop.

8. Caramel Ash Blonde
