Medium Blonde Hair Color Ideas – 26 Trending Ideas for 2022

The best medium blonde hair color ideas

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.

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,” Petrucci shares. “It’s important that you consider your skin tone and eye color first before choosing which shade to rock.”

When asked about maintenance, Petrucci 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 her number one must-have products, as it strengthens and mends the hair beautifully.
