1. Sleek Bob & Bangs

Bobs and bangs are always a yes in our books. We’re particularly fond of wearing this classic hairstyle with a sleek finish. And, did you know, it’s totally possible to do with a round brush on this short hair? Yep! You just need to keep the size of the round brush in proportion, so seek out a one inch to an inch and a half size. Then just use your brush to do an at home blowout, curling the ends under.

2. Spunky Ponytail

We all have those days that you just need to whip your hair out of your face, pronto. For bleach blondies, go for the spunky ponytail! You’ll be able to achieve this pretty easily with just one hair tie. With your hair tie on hand, roughly collect your hair into a ponytail and secure into place. Then you can pull and tighten random strands to get a messier finish. Undercut optional, but totally recommended for our edgy friends.

3. Piecey Volume

This look is very early ’80s in the best way possible. To achieve this look, rough-dry your hair, directing your roots upwards for extra lift. Then, get that piecey look by using S Factor By TIGI Creamy Molding Wax to pinch together random ends.

4. Tousled Pixie

It’s not too often that we see platinum blonde pixie cuts! It’s a totally gorgeous look that we can’t get enough of. To add a little dimension to this short cut and color, we like a rough, tousled finish. You can let your hair air dry for best results this time. Then, when your hair is dry, rough it up with your fingers so it doesn’t look too neat.

5. Wet Look Low Ponytail

We all know that going platinum blonde can take a lot of hard work. It’s also pretty hard on your hair, which can feel stripped and dry after all that processing. We suggest working in much more moisture to your hair care routine to keep a soft texture! That’s kind of the secret to this wet look ponytail. It’s trendy and also great for your hair. Just apply a bit of Nexxus Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil onto your palms before smoothing your hair back into a ponytail. Use more or less oil depending on how wet and shiny you want your hair to look.

6. Healthy-Looking Beach Hair

Another way to work a little more moisture into your hairstyles is to create healthy-looking beach hair. Instead of going for the classic beachy waves, wear your natural texture, air dried. If you need to add volume do so with some very light back combing. Then, add texture using a pea-sized amount of the Suave Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Oil Treatment. Just apply to your hands and scrunch in! If you need more, go for it but starting small is always best when styling your hair with oils.

7. Flippy Lob

Not into the totally curled under look? Add a little more volume to a sleek lob by curling out and in randomly. You can get this look so many different ways! You can opt for a blowout, alternating your round brush over and under, or you can get it with a flat iron by just curving up the ends of your hair.

8. Messy Shag

Calling all air dryers! One of the easiest ways to style a shag cut, especially on dehydrated platinum blonde hair is to let it do it’s own thing. Then, once your hair is dry, you can evaluate what needs a little more attention between your texturizing spray, and your flat iron.

9. Two-Toned Pixie

How cool is this two-toned pixie cut? It’s a great choice for gals who don’t want to dose their whole head in bleach. This cut keeps the bottom half shorter, like an undercut, and leaves that section your natural color. Only bleaching the top half of your hair saves time and effort.

10. Wispy Ponytail

We’ve got another ponytail option for you! This time it’s this dreamy wispy look. With its cool ode to the ’90s, all you need to do is wear a low ponytail with random sections left out to frame your face. It’s also a great option as a way to wear ponytails if your hair is on the shorter side!

11. Stacked Braids

These stacked braids create one of our favorite runway hairstyles. To make your life easier, start off with a low ponytail (again, we know!) secured tight at the nape of your neck. Then, you can split the tail of the ponytail into different sections. Braid down those sections and secure at the end for a cool multi-level look. Cotton candy style teasing at the roots, totally optional.

12. No Heat Waves

Not applying heat to your bleach damaged hair is one of the best ways to help it along. It’s why we love doing heatless hairstyles so much! You can create these gorgeous beachy waves without heat in several different ways. Our favorite though? Definitely the big bun approach.

13. Root Hiding Hats

If you’ve been avoiding your stylist and are rocking some distinct roots, have no fear! Hats are a great way to boost your style and hide those roots from wrecking your good hair day. Word to the wise, don’t let your roots grow longer than one inch to avoid issues in toning and matching your roots to the rest of your hair.

14. Knotted Ponytail

This elegant ponytail is almost too good. We love the sleek approach for formal events. You can get this style by starting off with a smooth blowout. We recommend using TRESemmé Smooth Serum to smooth down flyaways and frizz as well as add shine to your hair. For the full steps, check out our tutorial for creating this awesome knotted ponytail.

15. Pink Dye Additions

Adding a different flavor of the week with temporary dyes is one of the most fun parts about having such light hair. You can opt for semi-permanent dye for a couple week long adventure with pink hair, or use hair chalks for an even more temporary solution.
