While trends change, there is something timeless about natural blonde hair. Blonde is one look that can go through many iterations depending on the current fashion. Coiffed platinum hair was the rage in the 1950s as bombshell screen stars wore the color. Twenty years later, a more mature, golden-blonde look was popularized by the hippie-free-loving '70s. Inexplicably, in the 2000s, stripey blonde highlights were the look. Later, natural blonde hair colors like balayage or ombre became more popular.
Although the age-old question, "Do blondes have more fun?" will never be answered, it is clear that there are many more choices for blonde hair colors. Many trendy shades, such as Playboy blonde or champagne blush, have joined the classic blonde shades of honey and platinum. This allows every skin tone and hair color to lighten. Because they are easy to maintain and have a natural feel, low-maintenance shades like Undone Blonde have seen a surge in popularity over the pandemic. Mega-bright shades, as Gigi Hadid has proven, are also on the rise. We spoke with top colorists to discover the current most popular blonde hair colors. Continue reading for their tips.
