#1: Light Blonde Long Waves

The light blonde long waves are certainly attractive. Using a blonding service could be a major choice. However, a pro stylist can guide you and select a toner that best suits your skin tone. If you pair the color with long layers and use a curling iron for styling at home, you can enjoy your new, beautiful look.

#2: Honey Blonde Hair

This look is an effortless blend of natural tones complemented by hand-painted balayage that gives a luminous sun-kissed effect. The neutral and sandy tone perfectly balanced by a layered cut to show off that soft blonde dimension. My favorite part about this look is that it is one of the shades of blonde hair that requires minimal maintenance! The hair color growth line is very diffused, allowing clients to go longer between salon color visits. The color will grow beautifully, and refreshing the color while enhancing shine is easily achieved with a toner and glossing treatment!

Perfect for almost all hair types and lengths (apart from very short/cropped hair), this blended blonde look is versatile and doesn’t discriminate! It complements faces of all shapes long, round, square, or heart-shaped. This look is also a smart solution for any woman with naturally gray hair, as it allows the colorist to target the specific strands without touching the scalp directly.

#3: Winter Blonde

Winter hair is not always dark, it can have depth. When you’ve dyed your hair blonde throughout the summer, the best way to maintain it, since we all know you’ll color it blonde again next summer, is to opt for a blonde with level 8 champagne roots and light blonde mid-lengths and ends. This approach adds depth while maintaining a bright shade of blonde.

#4: Perfectly Rounded Bob with Blonde Hues

If you love lighter hair colors, then a perfectly rounded bob with blonde hues is the best choice for you. This timeless crop pairs perfectly with honey and platinum tones for a stunning style on nearly anyone.

#5: Light Blonde Hair with Brunette Tones

Light blonde with ashy tones isn’t truly brighter. However, they do add density and texture to hair. This color is excellent if you like light hair but want it free of brassy shades. Bringing inspirational pictures can help your stylist understand exactly what you’re aiming for.

A creamy white Barbie blonde is perfect for those who prefer a light and bright hue. This particular blonde looks just as good in the summer as in the winter, meaning you can rock this style all year round.

#7: Sultry Light Blonde Waves

These light blonde waves have a rich platinum color with hints of violet. You can achieve this look by applying bleach and adjusting the blonde color to your preference. If you have naturally dark hair, this may require time and several sessions. I recommend visiting a stylist who is an expert in using bleach for hair color.

Make your blonde hair richer and wavier with vanilla blonde. Vanilla blonde highlights created with warm and platinum tones give your hair this delectable look.

Bleached-Out Light Blonde Long Hair

#9: Bleached-Out Light Blonde Long Hair

Long bleached-out light blonde hair is comparable to Barbie’s. This color requires high maintenance, just as Barbie would. Touch up bleach and tones every 4 to 5 weeks. This helps maintain a more even blonde by preventing color bands. If you do not touch it up within 5 weeks, the process could cost more and take longer. Commit to this hair care routine, and you will achieve the most gorgeous, stunning, perfect long blonde hair.

#10: Face-Framing Bright Blonde

Enhance your features with the face-framing bright blonde hairstyle. My best advice is to opt for this look to add brightness to your appearance. The face-framing highlights frame your face and create a stunning contrast. For styling, use a heat protectant spray before blow-drying your hair straight. Finish with a shine-enhancing serum for a sleek look that shows the brightness of the blonde.

#11: Ice Blonde Balayage on a Messy Lob

Go for an ice-blonde balayage on a messy lob. An all-over babylight mixed with a balayage will ensure high-impact blonding and blending. To help achieve an icy blonde, you will want to lift to level 9. Gloss with a cool-toned shade with a splash of gold to balance it out.

#12: Light Blonde Balayage for Medium to Long Hair

A light blonde balayage could be a great choice for those searching for a bright hair color. This hair color blends cool, warm tones, adding dimension and movement to your everyday look.

This popular hair color technique creates a blend of tones that ranges from warm to neutral. Creamy and golden blonde shades are commonly used to create a multi-dimensional effect. These tones complement olive and tan skin tones. For those with lighter skin, your colorist can lift the blonde to a level 7 or higher for a best-suited result.

Try a soft, blended blonde style to brighten your tresses if your hair looks dull. Ask your stylist for babylights and avoid ash toners, as you want a clear and bright natural blonde. Adding gold to the formula will help you achieve this beautiful shade.

#15: Light Pearl Blonde

Light pearl blonde is a stunning, elegant, modern, and chic color. The light pearl blonde color adds a soft, delicate touch to long, flowing locks. It creates a look that is both natural and radiant. Keep your hair looking its best! I suggest investing in high-quality hair care products designed for color-treated hair. This can help preserve the color and prevent fading or dullness over time. It’s also important to use a deep conditioning treatment regularly to keep your hair hydrated and healthy.

#16: The Perfect Summer Blonde

The perfect summer blonde is here. All-over blonding is an art at best. To have an all-over blonde, you likely need to do all-over bleaching for a hi-lift impact. Hi-lift color may get you here as well. But this would be best for levels 8 and lighter to achieve a light enough blonde without too much warmth.

#17: Bright Light Blonde Hairstyle

If you want to brighten up your long and thick locks, a light blonde balayage could be just the thing. Opt for a blend of cool and warm tones that complement your natural hair color. Dyeing your hair with a mix of creamy and honey-toned hues can add dimension and depth. And all while giving hair a sun-kissed look. This style works best if you have medium to dark skin tones. It can be adjusted to suit different levels of skin pigmentation. Aim for level 8 or 9 blonde tones for a natural, summery feel.

#18: Dark-Rooted with Blonde Curled Ends

Are you looking to add dimension to your hair without changing dramatically? Consider dark-rooted hair with blonde curled ends. This look features a darker base that blends into lighter blonde tones towards the ends of the hair. It creates a natural-looking effect that adds depth to your locks. This hair color suits various skin tones. But it works particularly well with warmer skin tones. If you want to pull off this look, ask your colorist to blend warm and cool blonde tones. And to focus the lighter shades toward the ends.

#19: Mid-Length Creamy Blonde

A creamy light blonde is perfect for those who like to make a subtle yet striking style impact. With long curtain bangs and a middle part, you can confidently wear your hair in any style. If you are looking for a stylish and flirty look, this color is perfect for that. This tone consists of light blonde shades with a creamy base, which gives it a warm and soft look. If you’re looking for a way to keep this looking vibrant, try using a purple shampoo every few washes.

#20: Strawberry Blonde

This is a soft strawberry blonde achieved with Redken Shades EQ in a light copper hue. We applied a bowl and brush to clean and dry hair for optimal longevity and coverage. I trimmed with my Olivia Garden 6.5-inch shearers, deep point cutting long layers to give her texture and movement.

This color was tinted with Redken Shades EQ over previously blonded hair. Therefore, it will need some maintenance. Glosses only last 4-6 weeks, depending on your at-home care. If using cool water to shampoo at home, shampoo 1-2 times per week while using dry shampoo in between. You will be able to keep this color vibrant and beautiful for longer.

#21: Platinum Blonde

This pale blonde hair color is pure platinum blonde. Platinum hair color is not cheap. You must get your roots done at least every 4-6 weeks and be vigorous with your at-home care. This means using only the best products. I wouldn’t suggest this style for the low-maintenance gal or someone who hates coming into the salon.

Also, when considering shades of blonde, there is an equation I love to use that works for everyone. Warm + warm = cool, and cool + cool = warm. If you have warm eyes and a warm skin tone, I’d suggest cool or ashy-toned hair, and for cool-colored eyes and cool-colored skin, I suggest warmer tones in the hair. It’s the perfect equation that complements every skin tone.

#22: Soft & Creamy Light Blonde Hair

This soft and creamy light blonde hair is a beautiful sandy beige blonde. Instead of white or ashy blonde hair, look for warmer blonde inspo to show your hairstylist. Warmer blondes are popular all year round.

#23: Very Light Blonde Hair with Pink Tips

A dip dye is the best way to try a vibrant color if you’re a little unsure. You get the fun, bright color but keep a more familiar color around your face. Ash blondes and pinks work well together as the pink will pop against the iciness of the blonde tones.

#24: Gorgeous Light Blonde Balayage Highlights

A gorgeous light blonde balayage with highlights is a stunning lived-in color. Maintenance at home is the key to keeping your blonde bright and healthy. I suggest talking to your stylist about which products will work for you.

#25: Light Blonde Highlights on Brown Hair

Opt for an airy brunette-blonde hair color that brings dimension to all hair types and lengths. Ask your colorist if this light brown blonde hair is an option for you based on your budget and the maintenance that comes with this.

#26: Bright Light Blonde Lived-In Lob

A bright light blonde lived-in bob is perfect for the trendy girl with good hair. To keep your hair looking well done, dyeing your hair requires more maintenance. With a bleach out and lightest blonde such as this, you should plan 5 weeks between your bleach and tone services at most. And regular in-salon treatments will keep your hair feeling healthy.

#27: Long Wavy Light Blonde Tresses

Long light blonde tresses are simple, bright, and natural-looking. A soft wave can bring out different hues of blonde. The cool and warm tones of the blonde pull this look together.

#28: Thick Shag Cut with Middle Part Bangs

Try heavy layers with curtain bangs if you invest in being a blonde babe but need a new cut. The shaping will add volume and bring life to your blowouts. It will also eliminate the dry ends you’ve developed over time. Remember, getting a trim at every appointment is always in your best interest. That’s because blonding your hair removes proteins that keep your hairs integrity. Using Olaplex 3 treatments regularly is recommended. This product will keep your blonde as healthy as possible.

#29: Light Champagne Blonde Straight Hair

The epitome of supermodel hair has always been light champagne blonde straight hair. The champagne tone adds warmth to the skin vs. platinum blonde can wash you out and make you look pale. I advise going lighter slowly. It takes time and patience to get to the light colors in a healthy manner. You must use a professional hair care line. Try not to overwash or over style to keep hair healthy and bright.

#30: Stunning Light Blonde Waves

Long hair with waves is stunning when highlighted with light blonde pieces. Ask your stylist for a full highlight of fine baby lights and glaze them with a toner with a drop of gold if you can. It will give you that killer reflection. Remember to maintain the health of your hair at home with a reparative treatment like K18 molecular repair hair mask. This mask will help to keep your hair strong and long.

#31: Balayage Ombre Light Blonde Hair

A balayage ombre is dream hair for a lot of women. The brightness of the cool blonde throughout with the darker root adds so much contrast, giving it such a vibrant finish.

#32: Very Long Curled Light Blonde Hair

Try a hair color that’s always trending with very long curled light blonde hair. If you want to keep maintenance low, root your color so the grow-out will be less harsh. The most important rule about having blonde hair is keeping it healthy. You can do a conditioning treatment once a week and frequent trims every 6-8 weeks.

#33: Light Blonde Balayage

It feels ecstatic to see a new color on your glorious hair. That said, why not try this bright semi-platinum blonde and see how much more beauty you can exude?

#34: Buttery Light Blonde Straight Hair with Darker Roots

Buttery light blonde straight hair with darker roots adds brightness to your ends and softness to your base. To keep your strands buttery, avoid purple shampoo. Purple shampoo’s job is to cancel out yellow, which also cancels the brightness. Remember the color wheel? The colors opposite of each other cancel each other out. Having your natural color peaking through the top helps keep your salon visits to a minimum since it will look more natural as it grows.

#35: Sleek Silver-Blonde Straight Hair

Don’t be afraid to dive into a new silver blonde tone! I suggest doing an ash tone on a blonde who is truly lifted to a level 9. Toning at level 8, you will pull an ash-green tone that is not appealing. Another thing to avoid is the overuse of purple or silver toning shampoo. It can add a dull cast to your color that must be cleaned out.

#40: Light Blonde Hair with Lowlights

To add contrast and make your hair look more three-dimensional, having some streaks two shades darker with greatly help in achieving this look.

#41: Natural Blonde

This look is foliage, and its natural blonde color is the best thing about it.

Don’t use color box dye 6 months before your salon visit to achieve this light blonde hair color. Sulfate-free shampoo is a must, too.

Consultation is important to achieve the perfect blonde for every single lady. Ask your stylist to look at your skin color, eyes, and face shape.

#42: Light Golden Blonde

This look is a soft honey blonde. My favorite thing about it is its multi-dimensional nature, especially when curled.

I love a style that enhances your natural curl and body. This is the perfect color and style for someone who needs to thicken up the look of their hair.

#43: Brown to Light Blonde Ombre

Going lighter with summer around the corner can sometimes get expensive with many trips to the salon, so this busy mom of 2 needed something with less maintenance.

Balayage is customizable to each mane and can create many different looks. My favorite thing about this light brown to blonde balayage is the lived-in seamless blend of her color to those light blonde ends.

When lifting her natural color, it usually tends to be warm, so instead of fighting it, we enhanced it with a Redken Shades EQ Gloss to give her that milk and honey mix. This way, her natural hair can grow out with no harsh lines at the root. Enhancing your naturalness will be healthier for your hair and prevent breakage in the future.

Of course, your cut and style can also be low maintenance. Less is more with one length and long layers. Blow drying with a round brush creates more shine and volume, then finish the ends with a slight bend from your curling iron—a perfect everyday style.

#44: Bronde Color

This look is soft and natural, with just enough smooth, hand-painted highlights to accentuate the client’s natural hair color. I love how the waves make the highlights pop, and the cut is simple with a few layers to make styling easy for her.

This is a great option for first-time color clients to ease into the world of color since the look works with their natural color instead of changing it completely. It’s also a great option for someone looking for a little pop of color but wants something low maintenance that looks great, totally styled, or thrown in a ponytail.

#45: Beige Blonde

My favorite thing about this light hair color and tone is that it looks natural and complements several skin tones.

My client had never colored her hair before, so we wanted a big change, but it still needed to look natural overall. For clients wanting this style, explain if you’d rather your blonde tone be more golden, ashier, or simply neutral. It helps your stylist pick the best toner for you.

We followed with a treatment to add some protein back into the hair that is sometimes lost from going lighter. The style was very simple. We wanted to show off the dimension in her blonde, so we did a blowout and added an oil-based product to help smooth any frizz that remained when we were finished.

If this is a color you’re interested in, it can take a lot of time. However, the end result is worth it. Be willing to spend the afternoon with your stylist to give them the time they need to devote to lifting your hair while keeping it healthy.

The coloring process was a full-head foil with balayage in between the foils. It took us almost back-to-back foils to brighten this to where it remained natural. We did a balayage technique on the rest of her hair that wasn’t in foils to add a more solid blonde towards her ends. While most blondes tend to be drawn to a cooler tone, this is a great option for natural blondes who want more brightness and subtle dimension.

#46: White Blonde

Opt for a pearl white hair color with a touch of a modern classic one-length bob. Not only does the color stand out among all, but also the hair is easy to maintain in terms of length, where the hair stays right at the chin.

This look is suitable best for women with confidence, strong character, and someone who loves to be bold. However, achieving this result will take a long time if you have dark natural hair colors like black or brown. It took 2-3 sessions to achieve this final result. Once you achieve this result, the most important is maintaining it. Ask your stylist about at-home care products.

#47: Light Blonde Hair with Highlights

When my client Ashley came into the salon, she wanted an icy but still bright blonde. She still had some faded lowlights from the last time we colored her hair, and we loved the dimension that was created. I did a full head of baby lights in foils to create this light beige blonde. She was then glazed with Redken Shades EQ to give it an icier tone.

If you are considering this look, remember: blonde can be high maintenance. Lightening the hair dries it out and damages it, so you have to take great care of it at home with the right products to keep it looking healthy. Olaplex is one of my favorite products to keep the hair at its best. Olaplex is a multi-step system that rebuilds the broken bonds in the hair created by coloring, styling, etc. Ashley comes in every 7 weeks to maintain this icy blonde color.

#48: Dark Brown to Golden Blonde Hair

This is mahogany into a golden blonde ombré. My favorite part about this look is seeing the darker tones as they transition into the lighter shade. Long layers and textured ends, and adding a little wave pull it all together.

It’s a little higher maintenance look, but this is great if you want a bolder color and a lot of brightness. This client is bubbly, so this look fits her so well. It’s always good when going blonde to hydrate well with a mask, use low heat settings on your hot tools, and use sulfate-free products.

A light blonde hair color is a color that ranges anywhere in the lighter and whiter end of the blonde spectrum: vanilla, ash, platinum, white, champagne, silver, and a whole lot more in between these muted shades.

First things first – consider your skin tone! Lighter blondes generally go with fair to medium skin colors with pink to yellow undertones. Working with your complexion is important to know which shade matches you the best!

Top blonde babes include Nene Leakes, Amanda Seyfried, and Eva Marcille, who ditched their natural hair colors and went for lighter and edgier tones! Pennsylvania colorist and blonde specialist Danielle Hess points out how beautiful the resulting dimension can be when the process is done on healthy and well-maintained hair.

Pulling off color this light might be damaging for some, especially those unnaturally blondes. This is where at-home care using only the best and stylist-recommended products saves the day! Monthly meetings with your colorist are essential as well.

There is a blonde for anyone who has the confidence to wear it! Below is my selection of the most popular photos of expertly done light blonde hair on the internet this season for you to see!
