A bronde hair color is a blend of brown and blonde that’s typically combined using highlights or the balayage technique. If you’re all about dimension and a fan of natural-looking highlights, this super wearable hair color trend is worth a try!
The time finally came when blonde and brown don’t have to be treated opposingly! All year long, you can flaunt a multi-toned bronde mane, and it’s guaranteed to be extremely fitting.
One thing to note is that this “requires lifting to a blonde and toning down, although it’s more wear and tear on the hair but it can look so beautiful,” says Connecticut stylist and IG hair influencer Jamie Pressman. To keep it more natural-looking, you’ll want to “avoid lifting too many levels at one time, ” she adds.
With the numerous shades of this blondish and brownish color, it’s expected that there’d be endless bronde ideas to choose from.
When looking for bronde hair inspiration, one tip is to take into account your skin tone and eye color. See how expert colorists did this for celebrity brondes like Anna Kendrick, Salma Hayek, Taylor Swift, and Jourdan Dunn who all fell deep for this glorious bronde trend.
Pressman told us “my #1 tip would be to have a maintenance glaze in between appointments to avoid it from turning brassy.” She’s a big fan of toning shampoos for color maintenance and having patience when getting certain versions of bronde hair. This is your finest opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds with these various bronde techniques!
Before your next hair appointment, check out these popular bronde hair colors!
#1: Shoulder-Length Bronde Hair Bob
Show off your natural beauty with earthy bronde hues on a shoulder-length bronde bob. Your hair tips’ light touching on your shoulders makes for a very refined appearance.
#2: Mid-Length Choppy Bronde Hair
The mid-length choppy bronde hair can be your go-to color and hairstyle if you have thick, naturally straight to wavy hair and dark brown to brown natural color base. After bleaching it your stylist will tone the blonde to remove excessive warmth. The toner will wash off gradually in a few weeks so be prepared to visit the salon more often.
#3: Chic Blonde and Brown Balayage
Consider a chic blonde and brown balayage if you like to keep your hair trendy but low maintenance. Keeping the color range to two or three levels of difference would be my advice. Doing so will keep your hair looking more blended and the outgrowth to a minimum. Keep in mind you might have to hop into the salon in between your appointments to glaze your blonde pieces.
#4: Tousled Long Bronde Hair
The best way to add movement to your lifeless locks is a tousled long bronde hairstyle. Ask for lots of face-framing and effortless waves. Take time to learn how to use products to achieve soft waves. My favorite heatless option is the Kitsch Heatless Curling Set.
#5: Sexy Bronde Balayage with Dark Roots
A bronde balayage paired with dark roots is a great way to brighten up and add dimension to your naturally dark hair. Leaving a shadow root will keep your hair always looking its best while also saving you money with less frequent salon visits. Go for warmer caramel tones that’ll complement your dark hair and look a little more natural.
#6: Bronze Bronde Long Blunt Bob
I highly recommend a bronze bronde long blunt bob if you like blunt bobs. Bronde is a great transition for in between or even just to test out a different look without a full commitment. Pair this with some beachy waves and you have an effortless, versatile hairstyle.
#7: Subtle Light Bronde
This light bronde color is a contrasted, cool beige balayage and highlight/lowlight combo from the beautiful color line, Wella. The sun is strong and wants to pull out all the golden tones in your hair. This cool beige will prevent the golden undertones from coming through so quickly to give you a longer-lasting color.
The haircut style for this light brown hair with subtle dark roots is a long layered razor cut to add texture, softness, and movement to the hair for a seamless natural grow-out. This color can work for all blondes looking for the transition of going slightly cooler of a blonde to feeling lighter and airy for summer. Also, it’s for brunettes looking to go lighter for summer, with a more textured body with a beachy look.
#8: Long Bronde Hairstyle with a Center Part
This long bronde hairstyle with a center part is what hair dreams are made of. This is a bright and dimensional look that also looks natural and effortless. In my experience, keeping your natural root always helps the longevity of your color. Achieve these curls with a 1.5″ barrel, curling everything away from your face all in the same direction. Allow to cool before brushing or raking out with your fingers.
#9: Modern Brown and Blonde Balayage
A modern brown and blonde balayage is a great choice for natural brunettes that want a low-maintenance color. If you can keep your natural base, you will only need to go for touch-ups every 4-6 months rather than 4-6 weeks. I would recommend keeping a beige or warm tone to the browns and blondes as they don’t require as much toning between sessions, especially if you try to limit spending at the salon.
#10: Yummy Cappuccino Bronde
Go for the perfect blend between warm blonde and chocolate brown. Hand-painted sections were used to achieve a soft ribboned look full of dimension. Finish this style with bouncy curls to enhance your look.
#11: Warm Balayage on Short Hair
Warm balayage is a technique that uses warm tones to create a natural, sun-kissed look on dark hair. It compliments short styles as well. It’s achieved by free-form painting with color to give the ends of your hair an extra boost of lightness. Plus, it preserves the root color. For best results, it’s important to have a pre-coloring clarifying treatment. This ensures the buildup of product and minerals is released, giving you a clean canvas to work with. To help maintain vibrancy between visits, I recommend using high-quality shampoo. Try Oway &ldquoColor protection hair bath.&rdquo This product helps extend the life of your balayage and protects against fading for up to 7 weeks!
#12: Sun-Kissed Bronde Hair Color
Bronde hair color is perfect for light skin tones to create a stunning halo of luminous warmth. This shade is created through balayage highlights. It blends golden and honey hues in soft strokes that add dimension. For easy upkeep, use a range of sulfate-free products formulated for color-treated hair. One product worth trying is Davines’ Alchemic Purple Shampoo for Blondes. It helps lock in color and shine while allowing you to keep your style intact longer. Be sure to communicate with your stylist the softness you are aiming for. This will allow them to craft an individual look tailored to your taste.
#13: Creamy Ash Bronde on Short Hair
Ash bronde on your short hair makes a creamy hair color that matches your bold hairstyle. The finish looks so much better on thick locks. Turn your ashy bronde short hair into a wavy bob if you’re into a more chic and messy-looking everyday hairstyle.
#14: Lighter Shade of Bronde
A lighter shade of bronde is the perfect choice if you can’t seem to decide between going lighter or darker. By choosing bronde you get the best of both worlds. The darker root allows for seamless growth and the brighter pieces will accent your face beautifully. For added fullness, work some Whip It Good mousse by Evo into your hair before blow-drying and finish with some beachy waves.

Khloe Kardashian-inspired bronde hair is an enviable color choice. The sunkissed highlights accent a warm skin tone beautifully and those beachy waves are perfection.

Kylie Jenner-inspired bronde keeps the level of lightness manageable, meaning a less aggressive color processing. Bronde isn’t quite blonde and isn’t quite brown. It’s the perfect fit for any fashion-forward woman who loves a soft, almost pastel feel to their locks. Bronde is an exceptional choice for year-round style. Make it a shade lighter for summer or a shade darker for fall, bronde is good fit for all.
