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 a cool-toned ash blonde hair. Ahead we’ve rounded up gorgeous ash blonde hair ideas we’re currently swooning over. Read on to get inspired by this collection of ash blonde hues: We’re covering dark ash blonde, medium ash blonde, light ash blonde, and everything in between.
10 Cool Ways to Wear Ash Blonde Hair
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 really into this trend and want to give it a go just see how it looks on you, go for a subtle statement with a dark ash blonde hair color. Opt for a dip-dye technique and add this cool-toned gray hue just at the tips of your hair. Best part: If you grow tired of it sooner rather than later, just snip off the ends and start fresh.
3. Ash Blonde Hair on Piecey Hairstyles
While some girls are going crazy to get thicker and fuller hair, the new texture for this season is all about light and airy hairstyles. Opt for pairing up your new ash blonde hair color style like a thin shag hairstyle worn bone straight for an edgy take on the look. For the girls with oilier hair types, consider using a dry shampoo to keep your style fresh. Use Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Dry Shampoo to refresh your hair and absorb excess oil.
4. 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 for transitioning from a warm base color to icy cool ends. We love this unique take on the ashy blonde hair trend.
5. Straight Up Texture
Wash and condition your hair in the shower, sleep on your wet strands, and let them dry overnight. You’ll wake up a with a head of straight hair that has a bit of extra texture. We love how that texture and movement pairs with fresh ashy blonde hair color.
6. A Classic Bob
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.
7. An Ashy Ombré
There’s a reason why almost every single celebrity has had ombré hair at one point or another. Ombre hair is to 2020 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.
8. Aging Gracefully
Use this ashy blonde color as a way to mask your grays as your hair changes color and you transition into full-on gray strands. Partially dyeing your hair an ashy shade of blonde as you transition will slow the process down a bit and give you the chance to make the transition as gracefully as possible.
9. Messy Texture
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.
10. Upgrade Your Curls
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.
