Platinum Blonde with Hightlights

by @suetyrrellstylist

If you are going for the “blonde bombshell” look, then platinum blonde is your best choice. Basically, it is the lightest blonde shade. Therefore, it will look best on those with fair to medium skin tones but can nicely compliment any eye color.

Platinum Blonde

by @_heyhelena

From Marilyn Monroe to Miley Cyrus, platinum blonde will always be in style. However, this is a high maintenance blonde hair color as it can easily fade, especially if you have naturally darker hair. It works well with pink skin tones and shorter hairstyles for a more dramatic and classic effect.

Light Baby Blonde Hair Color

It's a radiant hue that brings a luminous quality to your hair, ideal for adding a sun-kissed look to your style year-round. This shade is especially flattering for cooler skin tones, creating a stunning contrast that highlights your features.

Editor's Advice: To keep your blonde pristine, opt for a sulfate-free shampoo and consider a weekly deep-conditioning treatment.

Ashy Pearl Color

The ashy pearl blonde hair color is a sophisticated choice that exudes elegance. As Abby Haliti, French Balayage and color expert suggests, aligning hair color with your eye color and natural hair shade can elevate your aesthetic:

"Those with cool undertones, like pink or blue, tend to suit cooler blonde shades like platinum or ash blonde."

Dark Dirty Blonde Hair

by @frances_hairartist

Dark dirty blonde hair is a timeless color that brings depth and warmth to your look, creating a natural yet polished effect. It's an excellent choice for those seeking a subtle transition from darker shades.

Expert's Advice: Nicole Lucero, a colorist at NYC's Mahogany Grace Salon, recommends cool water rinses and weekly hair masks to maintain color integrity. Protecting hair from UV rays with SPF-infused products or hats, using heat protectants, avoiding harsh water elements, and regular trims with toner touch-ups, will keep your dark dirty blonde hair vibrant and full of life.

Playboy Blonde

by @salsalhair

Embrace the iconic playboy blonde, a hue that’s both flirty and sophisticated. This striking shade is reminiscent of the classic bombshells and radiates glamour.

Expert's Advice: Use purple shampoo and conditioner to preserve the coolness of this blonde. Select sulfate-free options that nourish the hair, keeping your blonde bright and preventing unwanted yellow tones.

Creamy Caramel Blonde Balayage

by @frances_hairartist

Creamy caramel blonde balayage offers a multi-dimensional look that combines warmth and brightness in a seamless blend. Abby Haliti endorses balayage for achieving the ideal blonde shade: “Balayage allows for a variety of blonde shades, creating a beautiful blend.” With its tailored application, balayage elevates a blonde base, introducing lively, bright strands that imbue the hair with a dynamic, creamy caramel glow.

Buttery Blonde

by @suetyrrellstylist

This shade is a gorgeous warm tone with soft touches of honey-yellow. Though this bright and sunny blonde works best for those with pearly complexion, it can flatter any eye color. This silky blonde is the look of the “All-American Girl.” Reese Witherspoon totally rocks this style with her pinkish hue.

Cherry Blonde

by @thehearstylist

This berry color with its fuchsia tones is perfect for those with dark eyes and skin. It is achieved by first dying your hair blonde and then adding the cherry on top. Still, with some pastel hues, you can make it work for lighter complexions as well.

Strawberry Blonde Ombre

by @thehearstylist

Strawberry blonde ombre hair color is a delightful blend that transitions from a deeper blush at the roots to a lighter, sun-kissed hue at the tips. This shade is a fresh twist on blonde, offering a hint of romance and whimsy.

Styling Tip: Emphasize the gradient of your ombre with waves, which can showcase the seamless transition of colors.

Blonde With Pastel Pink Hue

by @hairbyapes

Though it’s hard to notice the pink hue in this idea, you can definitely feel its presence. The darker shade of blonde coated with a soft pinky tone gradually transits to lighter ends, thus creating a pink-infused blonde.

Caramel Blonde

by @lenabogucharskaya

This shade is similar to dark iridescent blonde or light golden brown and works for any complexion. If you want this gorgeous shade of blonde to look natural, use pale highlights near your face and a dark golden blonde base in the middle of your hair length.

Chocolate Blonde

by @hair_by_zolotaya

This fun shade is a darker shade of caramel blonde that looks best on those with dark eyes and hair. But, you should be careful not to mix this shade with orange or platinum tones, as it will look unnatural. However, it looks stunning with soft, golden highlights.

Sandy Blonde

by @thehearstylist

This shade is subtle and warm and hence works best for those with fair skin and lighter eyes. Start with a dark blonde base and add a cool beige balayage on the ends to the mid-length in order to recreate this look.

Dirty Blonde

by @frances_hairartist

This medium shade of blonde is streaked with subtle wheat or “dirt” tones. As a matter of fact, this shade is perfect for those with brown or green eyes and a medium complexion. Still, girls with pale skin tones can also go for such an idea, mixing lighter hues.

Honey Blonde

by @sofiya.bravo

Abby Haliti advises that warm blonde shades like honey are ideal for those with warm undertones. The yellow, peachy, or golden tones in the skin are echoed in the hair, creating a harmonious and radiant look. Additionally, if you want to perfect this shiny shade, keep your roots darker and add highlights.

Summer Blonde

by @hairbyclairperez

This lavish flaxen shade of blonde is accomplished with sun-kissed highlights over a sandy base. It can be adjusted to fit any complexion and eye color at the same time. Also, it looks great with colorful ombre tips for a bit of an edge.

Ash Blonde

by @suetyrrellstylist

This soft ashy shade of blonde is a good choice for those with lighter skin and eyes due to its muted undertone. On top of that, it can be enhanced with bold dark highlights to match any skin tone. It is also recommended for hair that is starting to go gray.

Copper Blonde

by @presleypoe

This stunning dark golden hue has luscious amber undertones and goes well with darker eyes and complexions. For those with naturally dark hair, this is actually the best way to go blonde without those annoying brassy tones. At the same time, you can embrace the ageless trend - red hair!

Strawberry Blonde

by @hairbyangelaalberici

This popular strawberryblonde shade is soft reddish-blonde that resembles a breathtaking sunset. It flatters those with light eyes and fairer skin tones, adding a sense of warmth and harmony at once.

Silvery Blonde

by @hairbyapes

In case you don’t want to go platinum blonde like Marilyn Monroe, you can opt for a more classic dark blonde hair color. And you don’t have to go solid blonde either. Instead, you can experiment with different hues such as highlights and lowlights or try a two or three-toned blonde balayage!

This ashy shade of blonde is best on those with light skin and eye colors. It is another shade that works great for hair that is starting to gray. For those with a dark complexion, you can avoid looking pale and washed out by adding some warm honey tones, as well.

Brownish Blonde

by @hairbyapes

Just as silver-gray is becoming quite trendy, so is bronde or brownish-blonde. Bronde is extremely natural-looking and goes well with medium and fair complexions, as well as medium or light eyes.


by @danielcbeauty

Chrissy Teigen’s olive complexion works great with this dramatic “bronde” tone. It is also the perfect combination of warmer blonde and brown hues for a modern yet classy look that is fun and playful, and appropriate for all ages.

Eye-Catching Cool-Toned Blonde

by @salsalhair

Cool tones were created for cool girls, that’s for sure! Women with paler skin tones can’t take their eyes off their own reflection in the mirror; this color is truly magnificent. Those who prefer to stay away from saturated colors will love the cool pale effect that this color gives to their hair.

Soft Creamy Blonde Balayage

by @salsalhair

Although it’s hard to notice where one shade of blonde ends and another begins, this balayage looks unbelievably dynamic and multidimensional. Actually, that’s how perfectly blended colors work: they’re unnoticeable while giving a very balanced look. Here, faded dirty blonde seamlessly transits to soft creamy hue, becoming a glamorous single whole.

Such a hair color works best for fair complexions, but there is an option for medium complexions, too. Women with warm skin tones can add some dark blonde highlights to the creamy blonde, for example.

Blonde Bombshell

With Charlize Theron warmer blonde and vibrant undertones, Charlize rocks this sexy style that also compliments her skin tone. Claudia Schiffer embraces the role of a blonde bombshell with this perfect blend of honey and golden blonde tones. With its dramatic highlights, this look works best for those with full and voluminous hair.

Faux Blonde

by @frances_hairartist

Jennifer Aniston can totally pull off this sexy faux blonde color. It works best for those with olive skin tones, especially if you have darker hair and want to opt for a warmer gold or honey blonde. And those with lighter tones can pull off paler blonde tones.

Cool Brown With Blonde Highlights

by @frances_hairartist

Of course, brown-to-brunette hair colors are the timeless classic that will never fade away. And here’s one of the latest variations on this idea. Ask your stylist to adjust the temperature to a cooler mode when applying blonde highlights over your brownish locks.

Naked Blonde

by @balayageombre

To achieve this shade, you will need to mix light brown, neutral blonde, light caramel, and honey blonde shades. For a more dynamic effect, it’s better to mix these colors through balayage, as it will provide a well-blended finish at the roots.

Dishwater Blonde

by @hair_by_zolotaya

Although you may know this shade as dirty blonde hair, it has many names and hence many facets. Since this shade features various cool blonde and light or faded brunette hues, you can create a natural, yet outstanding look. Despite being contrastive, blonde and brown shades you choose will form a harmonic duo.

Warm Toned Blonde On Dark Brown

by @hairbyangelaalberici

As a matter of fact, there’s no better color match than blonde and brunette. Not only are these shades full of different variations but they also look natural, which is a win for modern girls. Let the top be darker, and then gradually transit to the lighter shade you choose.

Champagne Blonde

by @ellendevinehair

As you pair the color with blonde bangs or a longer mane, the shade will keep transitioning in the light as you move your tresses around. If you don’t want to go over with the upkeep and bleaching, the hue is worth your consideration.

Caramel Honey Blonde Hair

by @faithincurls

If there is a reason why anyone would underestimate caramel honey blonde hair – we know little about it. Should you be willing to embrace your natural hair color and texture, caramel blonde is there for you!

Mushroom Blonde

Blunt Lob With Highlights

by @salsalhair

When we need to go for something versatile, we opt for a blunt lob. It's probably the easiest cut to maintain, but we all want to diversify out haircuts from time to time. Dark blonde highlights will come in handy for those who are about to freshen up their daily hairstyle.

Light Sandy Blonde With Waves

by @salsalhair

And if you want to create a dimensional blonde look, you can also combine some honey hues with a sandy shade. For a livelier look, wave your hair. All in all, waves always know how to reveal the beauty of your hair color.

Platinum Wavy Blonde

by @salsalhair

Platinum blonde is the richest shade of blonde. To add some movement to this fantastic shade, wave your hair so that each lock is waved in a different direction: it creates a very lively look.

Creamy Blonde With Dark Roots

by @salsalhair

Some people call it a flaw, but we call it a stylish element. Dark roots are not necessarily about to spoil your look; they can actually accentuate your blonde hair. If you opt for creamy blonde, ask your hairstylist for balayage in order to make your roots less obvious when they grow.

Silvery Balayage On A-line Bob

by @_edwardsandco

A-line bob is a haircut that will never go out of style. It can frame your face, make your thin hair appear fuller, and just looks stunning. But we can’t have too much of a good thing, right? Let’s make it even more adorable: silvery balayage will make your cut look even more dramatic.

Blonde Bob With A Bang

by @chrisjones_hair

Fringe is making a huge comeback, especially with short bob hairstyles. Ask your stylist for a short blonde bob with bangs and soft layers that nicely frame your face. Slightly darker roots will also add some depth to this sexy short cut.

Blonde Undercut

by @shorthair_love

If you want a look that has a bit of an edge and don't mind very short blonde hair, this undercut could be just what you are looking for. The shaved sides with dark brown tones are the perfect contract for the trendy light blonde tapered cut.

Messy Blonde Long Pixie

by @shorthair_love

Pixie cuts are taking the world by storm as they are oh-so-chic! Shorter sides and long bangs that fall seductively over one eye give this look a sassy vibe. This long pixie haircut is even more alluring with platinum blonde tones for a look that’s sultry, yet sweet.

Side Shaved Pixie

by @shorthair_love

Even more daring is this blonde long pixie cut with a side shave. The golden blonde shade is super pretty but the side shaved hair is what really makes this look stand out. Ask to have one side shaved and then slick the rest of your hair over to one side for a look that’s too hot to handle!

Caramel Blonde Bob With Short Bang

by @salsalhair

A short bob haircut with choppy, jagged layers is indeed a great way to add some fullness to thin hair. Ask for a choppy fringe as well for a look that’s playful and chic. And blonde ombre is just stunning with its darker roots that fade to a shiny golden blonde.

Blunt Platinum Blonde Bob

by @salsalhair

Another great look for shorter hair is this blunt bob haircut. The sleek style is not only chic but also glamorous. And the dark roots that fade into a shiny platinum blonde gives it a somewhat playful vibe that shows you have a bit of a sassy side and are not afraid to show it.

Party Girl Blonde

by @hair_by_zolotaya

As you may know, Kate Hudson perfectly pulls off the party girl shade of yellow blonde. This color works best for those with a darker skin tone (or tan) and for outgoing personalities. So, if you are feeling especially bold this year, why not try this shade and embrace your inner party girl?

Socialite Blonde

by @frances_hairartist

If you have a lighter natural hair color and don’t mind the upkeep, then embrace the socialite style of Gwyneth Paltrow. This color screams money and style! It’s similar to platinum blonde but not quite as light and adds a bit more dimension.

Blonde Ambition

by @hair_by_zolotaya

If Courtney Love and Madonna have taught us anything, it’s that blonde does not have to be high maintenance. Both Courtney and Madonna have rocked darker roots with a bold blonde proving that blondes don’t always need constant upkeep to look super sexy.

Rocker Chic Blonde

by @donovanmillshair

Kate Moss, for example, has taken the rocker chic blonde to the new heights. Leaving some contrast in the blonde, Moss pulls off a natural blonde look that doesn’t require a lot of upkeep between color applications.

Natural Blonde With Dark Roots

by @frances_hairartist

Natural blonde with dark roots is a low-maintenance style that offers an effortlessly chic look. Will Francis, colorist at Sally Hershberger, suggests this approach for its ease and natural transition: “It’s great for those who are looking to immediately brighten up their appearance without having to commit to frequent salon visits."

Rooted Blonde

by @hair_by_zolotaya

A hint of a darker shade that softly blends with your lighter base is enough to freshen up your look. Besides, it’s no secret how trendy the shadow-root technique looks on blonde hair. Blondes can go for painted roots, and brunettes, conversely, can leave their roots as they are.

All-Over Platinum

by @theniksters

Some women don’t like going all-over platinum because they think the hair won’t look naturally shiny and full. But, in reality, if you switch to a new styling routine with products designed for light blondes, your hair will always look as if it’s just from the salon.
