Blonde and coloured hairstyles
A great interest to blonde hair can be explained by the fact that every other brunette wonders what it is to be a blonde and tries a blonde hair color at least once. Today thanks to balayage and ombre color techniques, a border between blonde and brunette palettes is blurred. The lighter and darker, cooler and warmer shades are blended so expertly that we can enjoy a whole host of new hair colors you can choose your own solution from and stop looking like someone else.
A new blonde or bronde hair color will lift your spirits every time you take a quick peek in the mirror. The gallery below will help you to realize which direction you want to move – darker or lighter, warmer or cooler, softer or more dramatic.
Here is an inviting buttery shade of blonde that seems to have come from under the California sun. It looks dimensional and very attractive to the eye, simply because it instantly awakes associations of blissful hours by the ocean.
#6: Caramel Blonde Hair
Caramel blonde is the sweetest and warmest reddish blonde hair color. It will make a beautiful frame for a face with the lightest skin tone and blue or green eyes. Very subtle blonde babylights and a few richer red streaks add to the complexity and uniqueness of the final result.
#7: Bouncy Caramel Blonde Bob
Dirty blonde hair is a complex color that is not dark enough to be considered brown, though it’s not an average blonde either. Some of the most popular celebrities that have embraced this shade are Jennifer Aniston and Lauren Conrad. Because it’s a low maintenance color, it is best paired with a low-key style like casual messy curls.
#8: Straight Sandy Blonde Layers
In contrast, pale blonde hair color is particularly flattering on women with fair or cool-toned complexions because of the beige hues in the color. It is important to avoid being washed out with such light colors, so make sure to help your facial features pop with a rich-colored lipstick and mascara.
#9: Rosewood Blonde Waves
What a gorgeous and sophisticated hue we knew nothing some 5-10 years ago! Is it blonde or brown? Is there a hint on pink or it’s just the lighting? The most amazing hues can’t be described in a few words. They create a unique look for you and make you feel special.
#10: Beige Balayage for Light Brown Hair
With such beige blonde highlights brushed on the sides of your angled ash brown lob you’ll rather look like a blonde, not a brunette. A stunning idea for a lady who wants to soften her look, but still appear pulled together thanks to the geometric silhouette of her cut.
#11: Rooty Long Bob
Good fashion is like barbecue: a little sweet and a little spicy. In the image below, platinum highlights and razored ends create a light breezy feeling. Dark roots and undone texture add just the right balance of grit. A glossy finish ties it all together.
#12: Shoulder-Length Ombre
Instead of choosing a mid-range tone, deconstruct the bronde trend with this high-contrast mix of blonde and brown. Warm peachy hues soften the juxtaposition. The blonde color of the ends isn’t solid, it rather alternates strips of two different shades: light honey and silver blonde.
#13: Icy Ombre Waves
Retaining a darker shade at the roots makes your mane appear thicker and keeps you from having to get it colored every 4-6 weeks. The wavy texture creates diffused edges and shows off the nuances of highlights. The moderate length helps maintain healthy ends.
#14: Warm Blonde Curls
Blonde doesn’t have to be homogenous. A blend of honey blonde and brown highlights is anything but boring. Styling in loose coils reveals interior layers of hair, showing off the interwoven hues. Long layers add classic shaping that de-bulks ends and adds swing.
#15: Long Bob with Babylights
For an au courant take on pale strands, try this color solution that reminds us of sun-kissed child’s hair. Ultra-thin wispy blonde highlights give a sun-brightened effect that’s vivid at the edges and barely-there in the roots. The long tousled bob enhances the youthful appeal while staying on-trend.
#17: Wheat Blonde Ombre
The gradient blonde emerging from dark roots evokes the hues of a field of grain. The wispy, soft layers support the visual flow. Nature is a great source of color ideas. The pale hues of cereals provide a bounty of blonde inspiration.
#18: Amber and Gold
Make your skin glow and your eye color pop with golden blonde hair. Warm blonde hair colors feel sun-kissed without tanning. The key to keeping them from feeling brassy is to add a bit of beige, which cuts yellow tones.
#19: Tortoiseshell Curls
Different shades of brown and blonde mingle and entwine in this pretty carapace-inspired blend. Using a greater density of warm brown underneath with lighter colors condensing toward the surface achieves a beautiful dimensional effect. Winding strands vertically around a curling iron produces lovely elongated mid-shaft coils.
#20: Cream-Colored Bob
Treat yourself with a dessert-inspired color. Fluffy texture and vivid brightness create a scrumptious look redolent of velvety mousse. Although at first glance this appears to be a solid shade, it’s actually a very dense highlight with pieces of sandy blonde scattered through the platinum.
#21: Contrasting Highlights
Natural brunettes can achieve dramatic results by using highlights for blonde hair. Applying pale colors in stripes flaring towards the ends focuses brightness around the edges. This technique works especially well on long strands as it replicates the way strands respond to the sun.
