Dark blonde hair color is the darkest shade of blonde. Shades of dark blonde hair can range from a dark golden tone to a cooler tone of dark ash, which makes it a versatile hair color for all seasons and many skin tones. The warmer shade of blonde works great for spring and summer, while the cooler and neutral blonde shades work well for autumn and winter.

If you’re a woman looking to change hair colors and looking for blonde shades, a darker shade is an easier transition because there is more to work with in terms of different highlights and combinations of darker hues.
