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. One tip is to take into account your skin tone and eye color. See how expert colorists did this for celebrities like Anna Kendrick, Salma Hayek, Taylor Swift, and Jourdan Dunn who all fell deep for this glorious hair 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 this hair color.

This is your finest opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds! Keep on scrolling to see how everyone’s nailing these popular bronde hair colors!

Medium Bronde Curls

Q&A with style creator, Shannon Hollis
Curly Hair Specialist @ Nova Hair Collective in Austin, TX

How would you describe this look?

This look is an ideal cut and color for anyone looking to embrace their natural texture while also having fun with low-maintenance hair color. Using a straight razor, I gave her soft organic layers, removing unnecessary weight on the ends and preserving the length in the front, so she can pull her hair back with ease. We also decided to keep her natural hue as the base and add both caramel tones and brighter blonde bits, giving her that dimensional look that really makes her curls pop!

Any advice for someone considering it?

Don’t be afraid to go big and bold! Find a stylist whose work resonates with you, especially when it comes to low-maintenance 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!

Golden Honey Blonde

How would you describe this look?

This is a very nice color for those who like low maintenance hair colors. Honey blonde looks very edgy to me, and most people will look nice with this color.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I really recommend this look for 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. It’s always good to have professional products at home, so you don’t need to be at the salon constantly for treatments.

How would you describe this look?

This color style is a contrasted, cool beige balayage and highlight/lowlight combo from the beautiful color line, Wella.

As a Florida babe, we know 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.

My favorite haircut style for this look is a long layered razor cut to add texture, softness, and movement to the hair for a seamless natural grow-out.

I used Bumble and Bumble Bb Primer to prep hair with vitamin-boosted minerals and heat protection and overlaid with Protect Number Two, Bumble and Bumble New Go-Big Treatment Spray to add volume and hold within the blowdry. I styled with a Hot Tools Marcel 1.5″ curling iron. To finish the style, I flipped that head over and sprayed Dry Texturizing Spray by Oribe.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This color, style, and haircut can work for all of my blondes looking for that transition of going slightly cooler of a blonde and feel lighter and airy for summer. Also, it’s for all my brunettes looking to go lighter for summer, with a more textured body with a beachy look.

This amazing summer look will last you months with low upkeep because of its seamless transition. Chill at the poolside or hit the beach and feel that cool beige sexy breeze through that hair.

How would you describe this look?

I would call this a bronde hair color – a perfect in-between brown and blonde. I love this color because many people can pull it off. It’s not too dark or too light.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If this is a color you are considering, I highly suggest you get long layers as well. It goes with the color and shows off the dimension. For styling, beach waves will make those colors and layers pop. If you are worried about maintenance, it’s a little more maintenance than an all-over brown, but not as much as a bright blonde. I suggest 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.
