In the mood for a dramatic change this season? Pile on the blonde. For a maximum impact, freshen up your look with a mixture of caramel and blonde ribbons. Give your new look a glossy sheen for a golden sun-kissed glow. After styling your hair, finish it off with TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Leave-In Hydrating Mist for frizz protection and control.

2. Face-Framing Blonde Highlights

A true minimalist at heart knows a little goes a very long way. If you’re looking for a way to give your natural hair color and facial features a bit of a boost in an ever-so-subtle way, opt for face-framing blonde highlights. A color-safe dry shampoo, such as Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Dry Shampoo, can give you a break from washing in order to prolong your highlights’ integrity as well.

3. Waves with Blonde Highlights

Nowadays, everyone is wearing a wavy hairstyle of some sort. Stand out from the crowd and add more personality to your look by updating your waves with blonde highlights, which you can amp up with a bounce-enhancing product such as Dove Style+Care Curls Defining Mousse before blow-drying or curling.

4. Blonde Highlights for Curly Girls

Most curlfriends usually ditch the curl enhancers during the colder months and stick to their trusty heat styling tools to revamp their look for the new season. If you’re not looking forward to spending hours on end straightening your hair but still want to try something new, opt for adding bronde or blonde highlights to enhance the look of your ringlets.

Note that if you currently have dark hair, and want your hair to look really blonde, you’ll probably need to opt for a full head of highlights. If you have a base color that’s naturally lighter (like ash brown) then you could probably get away with half a head of highlights. The best thing is to ask your colorist for advice on how many highlights you need to make your hair appear blonde.
