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! You can flaunt a multi-toned bronde mane all year long, 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, 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 hair inspiration, one tip is to consider 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 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!
