Don’t believe us? Well then, let these golden blonde hair ideas speak for themselves:
This style is the most popular and trendy way to incorporate golden blonde hair into your style. This is the laid-back cousin of the more dramatic ombré, and creates a small gradient of change from dark roots to lighter ends.

Let your golden hair down in perfect beach waves and embrace your natural texture. You can’t go wrong with a wavy beach texture like this, it works for a big variety of occasions.
4. High Ponytail
Ponytails are one of the most versatile styles for just about any occasion. If you’re going to the gym, just simply tie up your hair in a high ponytail and head out the door.

5. Double Dutch Braids
Double dutch braids, also known as “boxer braids,” are the best style to pull off an athleisure look. Whether you’re headed to the boxing ring, or just grabbing a latte at a coffee shop, these braids pull off any comfy-yet-chic vibe.
6. Wispy Bangs
Whether you have long golden locks or a choppy gold-hued bob, wispy bangs can turn any hairstyle from basic to runway chic at any moment. Make them prepped or messy and tousled; either way, they’ll make your hair look sexy and playful.
7. Braided Bun
If you really want to go all out with your hair, then you should try an intricate braided bun. Do a simple braid, or incorporate a few styles in one bun, just make sure you use some hairpins and Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hair Spray to keep everything in place all day long.
If you’re not ready to fully part with your dark hair just yet, then going for an ombré look is the perfect way to have the best of both worlds on your head. The striking gradient from dark roots to light, golden blonde ends is a mesmerizing look that can be pulled off by just about anyone.

If you’re trying to get ready in a pinch, a messy bun can be the answer to your time-constricted styling needs. This look is effortless and can still look put-together without being very messy.
If your hair is already a light blonde, then adding some golden blonde lowlights is a great way to switch up your style. Getting lowlights can give your blonde hair more stand-out color, definition and even make your hair seem fuller.
Who says you need to actually style our hair to make it flawless? Whether your hair is naturally super curly or pin-straight, your natural hair is part of what makes you beautifully unique, so let it flow!
If you’re not a fan of the drastic color changes of an ombré style, then try out a more subtle sombré. It still has a noticeably gorgeous color change, without the dramatic gradient from roots to ends.
18. Loose Curls
These free-flowing curls are a perfect way to give your golden blonde hair a timeless feel. Big, loose curls are a staple style to giving your hair added volume and fullness, and the golden pigment helps create a classic look.
19. Full Bangs
If you want to make your golden blonde hair truly stand out, nothing is more eye-catching than big, bold bangs. Fuller bangs give the appearance of a smaller face and thicker hair, all while adding a touch of a femme-yet-edgy appearance.
20. Sock Bun
A sock bun is a great way to create a bun with extra volume while looking tamed and sleek. Simply roll your hair in a hair donut (or you can D.I.Y. one with an actual tube sock), secure it with pins and Bed Head by TIGI Hard Head Hairspray, and you’re ready to go out and about!
