40 Fresh Honey Blonde Hair Color Ideas Trending in 2022

Honey blonde hair colors

Honey blonde hair is a blend of dark and warm blonde with light brown. The rich blonde hair color gets its name by having a similar hue as real honey made by honey bees. This is a great hair color because it compliments nearly every skin tone.

There’s nothing I love more than a multi-tonal blonde bombshell. A bright platinum certainly gets my heart beating fast, but it’s always nice to add in multiple dimensions and really make each tone pop. If you want to switch up your hairstyle and color a little bit and looking for some inspiration, then add in a bit of a warm honey tone.

Always use a heat protector to help your strands from becoming damaged.

#9: Flattering for Older Women Over 60

#16: Easy Dark Honey Blonde on Short Hair

A dark honey blonde hue works well for a girl who likes dimension. I do a lot of balayage on my clients because it has such an easy grow-out versus your basic foils. This color looks go great with this particular short hair style.

#17: Dark & Light Honey Blonde

Blonde waves are the perfect match when you wanna go for a fantastic textured flirty hairstyle. You can style your locks with some braids to push back and show off those dark roots that give an additional dimension to your hair’s deeper honey colors. The balance of light and dark makes this hair color pop.

#18: Coppery Honey Blonde for Older Women

Coppery blonde hair coloring is stunning for older women with a warm complexion. Darker, shadow roots allow for a better grow-out and easier maintenance, too.

An ombre caramel color melt is a color that transitions between a lighter honey blonde and brown hair color. You can wear it straight and it will look blended. A honey-hued color is perfect if you’re wanting something low-maintenance. It grows out very naturally. Adding waves gives it more dimension and texture. If you have fine hair, use texture spray for body.

#21: Modern Highlights

Consider a modern Bridgette Bardot with dark honey highlights. This hair color with highlights is soft, warm, and feminine, but the bangs give the overall look an edge and keep everything from looking too saccharine. This honey hair color is great for any woman since adding soft golden tones to your hair seems to be universally flattering. With the ashy color trends that we’ve been seeing the last few years, seeing warmth is refreshing. This is particularly true for older women since the complexion naturally cools down as we age. Warmth reinvigorates the skin and adds a cheery overall disposition to your honey shade.

#24: Natural-Looking Light Honey Blonde

Try a light honey blonde by keeping your natural base and adding pops of blonde foils. It’s an easy to maintain and very natural look if you’re wanting to have this color but still wanting to stay on the natural side of the spectrum. If you’re wondering about the upkeep, this look is great for women who are busy and like a low-maintenance look. However, coming in every 6-8 weeks to maintain a healthy color like this is recommended.

#25: Bright & Warm Honey Shade

This bright and warm blonde is a natural alternative to a blonde for those who aren’t ready for honey platinum hair or want to keep some warmth to their current color. The best thing about it is how it will pull out the golden blonde tones in your skin tone and is bright and warm without being brassy! Use Brilliant Blonde color-enhancing shampoo from Monat to keep the golden hues beautiful and the health of your hair at its best with their natural, botanical color enhancers. When asking your stylist for streaks of warm blonde, definitely make sure they lift you to the correct level before toning to this beautiful shade versus using natural pigments to counteract the brass that could occur.

#26: Layered Hair with Balayage Highlights

This multi-dimensional balayage is a beautiful mix of honey blonde highlights and a warm brown base. These golden highlights should be handpainted and beautifully blended for a sunkissed, natural look. Handpainted highlights allow for a beautifully blended dimension without the demarcation lines of a heavy foil highlight. Adding a shadow root, typically closer to your natural color, will give you even more longevity between color appointments. These warm honey blonde strands reflect light and complement most skin tones, especially a fair skin tone.”

#27: Casual Golden Honey Blonde Hues

These golden hues are multi-dimensional and great for women wanting both blonde and brunette tones. The best thing about this shade is the versatility it allows and the way the tones amplify features like skin tone and eye color.

#28: Natural Honey Blonde Balayage

Try a natural blonde & honey balayage. Often, warm tones in your skin (reds, yellows) work well with warm tones in your hair (caramel honey). The technique is key and going to a stylist who has been trained to make a smooth and subtle blend up into the root will get you the best results.

#29: Refreshed Honey Beige Blonde Hair

A honey beige blonde color has warmer tones and dimensions added to it. I feel like a lot of the blondes I come across are very cool-toned, so it was fun to change things up a bit. Adding the beige color tones down your hair a bit.

A balayage can look flattering on straight hair. The great part is that this shade stays fresh for a long time because of the warm colors.

#31: Bright Blonde & Creamy Hair

A bright blonde creamy hair is luxurious and natural. Right now it is all about warm, rich, and luxurious blonde colors. The BlondMe series from Schwarzkopf has a shampoo and conditioner that keeps the color rich and fresh. I also love Schwarzkopf’s Peach Foam Color that you can easily use at home as color-adding aftercare.”

#32: Neutral Honey Blonde

These hues can be achieved by doing a heavy application of traditional foil highlights and toning out unwanted warm tones. This wearable shade of honey-colored hair is for all skin tones! I suggest consistent trips to the salon for highlight touch-ups and a trim every six to ten weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows to keep your ends healthy and your new growth nice and bright! To extend your time between salon visits, add a toning shampoo to your hair care regimen to keep those warm tones at bay.

#37: Amazing Dark Roots with Honey Blonde

My advice to a client looking for honey blond hair is that it is ideal if you are already naturally blonde and only going one level lighter than your own for the base color. It is also ideal for light grey coverage/blending. A few face-framing highlights every other root touch-up that brightens and adds dimension to an already beautiful tone.

#38: Gorgeous Honey Blonde Layered Bob

If you’re an older woman, consider this shade of honey blonde colored hair to cover your grays. It’s a fun short cut with short layers that gives your fine and thinning hair body and volume. The best thing about it is how the color and the dimension give your hair a beautifully soft and fuller look. Use Kevin Murphy Body.Builder mousse and MoroccanOil Strong Hairspray. I love the Design Me Puff Me spray after the blow dry to give roots a beautiful lift and add some texture to your hair, too.

#39: Balayage Highlights & Lowlights

Balayage highlights and lowlights with a shadow root are a great combination. This honey blonde hair dye has a dimension of the lowlights and the easy grow out from the shadow root. If you color frequently, I recommend doing a toning shampoo and deep conditioning treatment once a week. It always breaks my heart a little bit when I see women spend hundreds of dollars on their color but then use $5 shampoo at home and wash it all down the drain.

#40: Warm & Neutral Honey Blonde

A warm honey blonde style is warm/neutral, so it works for a wide variety of skin tones. I recommend these shades of honey blonde if you want to add dimension and brightness to your hair.
