If you are interested in going blonde, it is important to take a look at the different types of blonde to choose from. Ranging from lily white to darker, almost brown hues, blonde hair has the versatility to cater to all skin types. When it comes to bleaching your hair blonde, it needs to be kept in mind that the shade that is chosen doesn’t wash you out. Here are the six most popular shades of blonde described.
Platinum Blonde Hair
Platinum blonde is the lightest shade of blonde you can do. Platinum blonde can come in different hues as well, ranging from completely white to yellow/golden. This shade goes best with pale to medium toned skin and is really great with bright brown or blue eyes.
Baby Blonde Hair
Otherwise known as ‘natural blonde hair’, this blonde coloring looks very natural in terms of the highlights and lowlights that are used to achieve this look. Baby blonde can either be on the lighter or darker side in terms of shades. Of course, if you’re darker then you should use darker shades of blonde, and vice versa if you’re very light/pale. This will make sure that your end result comes out looking as natural as possible.
Strawberry Blonde Hair
This shade of blonde features a faint reddish appearance, giving it that strawberry blonde look. Depending on the amount of red put into the hair, it is easily mistaken for being called ‘redhead’. Strawberry blonde tends to look great on all skin types depending on the shades used.
Golden Blonde Hair
On the darker side of the blonde spectrum, golden blonde hair is the healthiest looking shade of blonde. The key to achieving a successful golden blonde hair color is by choosing a color that won’t come out brassy and by adding dimension through high and low lights within the same color.
Ash Blonde Hair
If you’ve ever seen hair with a subtle gray appearance, then it was more than likely an ash blonde color. This color is a great option for women who are looking for a softer look, as opposed to being boldly blonde. The gray tint gives it a more mature look, so this color is great for women who are starting to actually go gray. Ash blonde tends to looks best on pale to medium skin tone.
Honey Blonde Hair
Honey blonde features brown lowlights which make it the perfect blonde for women with darker skin tones. This color tends to work great on medium-dark skin tones since it’s not as light and won’t be too harsh for the skin. If you’re on the pale side, you may want to lighten this color up with some highlights around the face so that it doesn’t wash you out.
If you are tired of the basic hair color and want that gorgeous blonde to make your hair brighter, you can try full highlights or even balayage that can blend different shades into your natural look.
