20 Fantastic Medium Blonde Hair Color Ideas

The best medium blonde hair color ideas

A medium blonde hair is a shade of blonde paired with a shoulder-length haircut. If you love a soft and subtle contrast, then these blonde tones will be your new favorite hair color!

Medium blonde shades can go anywhere between honey, sandy, dirty, ash, copper, or golden blonde hues. These warm and cool blonde shades are beautiful and natural-looking that’s ideal if you want to do a balayage or ombre – like how it-girls Margot Robbie, Nicole Kidman, Gwen Stefani, Ciara, and Gigi Hadid do it with their blonde locks.

Blonde and balayage specialist Justine Petrucci recommends getting a trim or a haircut especially when you’re trading darker shades for blonde. “I want to know they’re leaving the salon with healthy blonde hair that will grow out beautifully,” she says.

“Trust your hair colorist to give you an opinion on the medium blonde tones and placements that will suit you,” Justine shares. It’s important that you consider your skin tone and eye color first before choosing which shade to rock.

When asked about maintenance, Justine suggests “to replace your regular conditioner with a mask or treatment. After being lightened our hair needs more moisture. Everyone washes their hair, so I know even the busiest woman can do it!” Olaplex is one of her number one must-have products, as it strengthens and mends the hair beautifully.

Here are this year’s best medium blonde hair color ideas.
