Bronde Hair = Blonde + Brown and These Are 17 Gorgeous Examples

Bronde hair color ideas

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!

This bronde color is an ideal color for women looking to embrace their natural texture while also having fun with low-maintenance hair color. It was created by curly hair specialist Shannon Hollis of Austin, TX.

“Choose to keep your natural dark brown hue as the base and add both caramel tones and brighter blonde pieces,” said Hollis. “This will give you that dimensional shade of bronde!”

Don’t be afraid to go big and bold! Find a stylist whose work resonates with you, especially when it comes to low-maintenance bronde hair color and natural texture. It’s also important to avoid sulfates, parabens, and silicones in your products to prolong the life of your color and ensure optimal hair health!

Gigi Hadid’s Golden Honey Bronde

This is a very nice golden bronde color for women, inspired by A-lister Gigi Hadid, who likes low-maintenance hair colors. It was created by hairstylist and colorist Mirian Marques of Somerville, MA. “Honey blonde hair looks very edgy, and most women will look nice with this honey bronde color,” says Marques.

“This shade is for women with medium to long-length hair. This color is very easy to maintain because to achieve this look, we don’t stress the hair so much,” she adds. “It’s always good to have professional products at home, so you don’t need to be at the salon constantly for bronde hair dye treatments.”

Light Bronde

“This light bronde color is a contrasted, cool beige balayage and highlight/lowlight combo from the beautiful color line, Wella,” explains hairdresser Shannen Deloatch of Orlando, FL.

“The sun is strong and wants to pull out all the golden tones in the hair,” says Deloatch. “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.

Deloatch believes 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,” she notes.

Bronde Highlights

“This bronde hair color features bronde highlights and is a perfect in-between brown and blonde.  With this color, many women can pull it off. With this brond hair, it’s not too dark or too light,” explains stylist Ashley Kovia of San Diego, CA.

If you’re considering bronde shades, get long layers as well. It goes with the color and shows off the dimension.

For styling, Kovia says beach waves will make those bronde colors and layers pop. “If you are worried about the maintenance to color hair bronde, just know it’s a little more maintenance than an all-over brown, but not as much as a bright blonde,” she adds.

Go in for touch-ups every 8-12 weeks and a gloss every 4-6 weeks. A gloss is ideal for shine and to tone the hair if it fades or gets brassy.
