Icy, bright, platinum blonde is the most classic shade of blonde you could find. Made famous by bombshells like Marilyn Monroe, this totally bleached look is stunning on the right skin tone. Fair skinned girls with yellow undertones look great with platinum locks, but be warned, this look is super high maintenance. Be prepared for fortnightly touch ups to keep regrowth at bay, and weekly toning sessions to keep your color fresh and not brassy.
Warm, honey colored blonde locks look great on women with naturally darker skin. Tan or olive skin calls for a color that won’t contrast or clash unnaturally with the rest of your face, and we love the addition of a natural root line or a slight ombre to keep the look realistic. Kim Kardashian was the queen of honey locks post pregnancy, so take from inspiration from her next time your at the hair salon.
Blake Lively knows that a warm toned blonde is perfect for her flawless bronzed complexion, which is why she has stuck with the same shade for almost her entire career. Skin tones with natural warmth are effortlessly complimented by a similarly warm blonde tone. Don’t be afraid to wear it messy and work with the natural highlights and low lights in your hair. Ask for this look at the hair salon if you want a glowing, beach babe look all year round.
Do you find bright blonde too harsh against your delicate skin? Strawberry blonde locks best compliment pale skin with pink undertones. But steer clear if your skin has a tendency towards redness! This shade works best with a peaches and cream complexion, but can highlight redness from acne or rosacea.
Do you have dark skin but have always wanted to try blonde? Your best option is jumping on the new trend towards “bronde” hair, which is a subtle combination of brown and blonde tones through highlights and lowlights. We love this look as it adds dimension without clashing with your skin tone, and can bring out subtleties in your eye color.
