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.

#3: Feminine Dark Bronde with Blonde Highlights

A dark bronde with blonde highlights is great if you’re looking for a little warmth in your hair. Dark bronde hair color is a mix of dark blonde and light brown hues. To accentuate the dark blonde hair color’s dimension, you should use a root lift and a leave-in conditioner or style cream.

A dark bronde is the perfect balance between a dark natural base and you being a blonde. A mixture of foilayage and painting techniques is used to create a strong color. By doing a root smudge with the toner (deeper at the roots on your crown moving gradually lighter towards the front) it’s low maintenance.

For upkeep, you’ll only need coloring every 4 months and cutting & toning 2-3 months. If you have thick hair it helps to achieve this look. But the color, cut, and finish can give medium fine hair the illusion of volume and fullness, due to the contrasting colors.
