30 Greatest Honey Blonde Highlights Ideas to Try

Honey blonde highlights are streaks of golden bronde tones, adding brightness around the face. These create a rich and warm dimension to elude lifeless hair.

Always consider maintenance when getting a new shade of hair. Let your stylist know how often you want to be in the salon to upkeep the color. “If you want a lived-in and low-maintenance color, get a foilayage or teasylights,” says stylist Megan Williams of Glastonbury, CT.

Restrain from having a faded hue by using the proper types of products.

Williams personally loves the Oligo Blacklight 18-in-1 Hair Beautifier. “It makes your hair feel amazing and protects it from damage. The violet tone helps kick any brassiness while leaving a honey-blonde hue,” she states.

For dark-haired women who want to go lighter, be patient and have faith in your stylists. Two blonding sessions might be required to achieve your preferred color while keeping your locks healthy.

You’ll need reference pictures to show your stylist once you book an appointment. Here’s our collection of the best and trendiest ways to wear honey blonde highlights. Take your pick!
