Bronde Hair = Blonde + Brown and These Are 15 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 is super 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 combinations 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.

Jamie told us “my #1 tip would be to have a maintenance glaze in between appointments to avoid it from turning brassy.” She said she’s a big fan of toning shampoos for color maintenance and to have 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! Keep on scrolling to see how everyone’s nailing these popular bronde hair colors!

Hairdresser @ Shand Hair in Orlando, FL


How would you describe this?

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 the 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 bronde is a long layered razor cut to add texture, softness, and movement to the hair for a seamless natural grow-out.

What’s your best advice?

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.

Stylist @ Rinse Salon in San Diego, CA


How would you describe this?

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.

What’s your best advice?

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