Enjoy these super trendy blonde ombre hair color ideas!
#1: Bright Blonde with Black Dip Dye
This bright blonde with black dip-dye ombre hair will make a bold and daring statement! This one is perfect if you want a color that will get people talking. I suggest using a lightener when going from your natural color to the bright blonde. Then use an ammonia-free toner on the lighter sections of hair for maximum shine. When it’s time for touchups, tell your colorist you want to keep the black dip dye intact. There’s no need to worry about fading or discoloration. To keep up with maintenance, use a high-quality sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner regularly. Lastly, remember moisturizing treatments every few weeks!
#2: Tousled and Lived-In Blonde Ombre
Ask your stylist for a lived-in blonde ombre with tousled waves at your next appointment. But only if you want a low-maintenance color. Opt for a root shadow to help bridge the gap between your natural color and the lightened ends. This will create a seamless blend and allow you to go longer between touch-ups. It will also ensure that your hair looks great regardless of how you wear your hair. Be aware that lightening hair can cause damage or porosity issues. So use quality hair care products to keep your hair healthy.
#3: Platinum Blonde to Golden Brown Ombre
This amazing dark to platinum blonde ombre on long sexy waves is an absolute stunner! This looks even more amazing on long ombre haircuts with all the dimensions. No need to worry about your tresses growing out with this brown base, as this look’s a low-upkeep one!
#4: Brown to Icy Blonde
Here’s a brown to icy blonde reverse ombre for a unique, soft transition of tones! The graduation of colors suits a long voluminous, wavy hairstyle. That faded effect is a straight-up fire!
#5: Dimensional Blonde Ombre
If you want a lower-maintenance blonde, ask for a dimensional blonde ombre. Ombre means to go from dark to light so that you will keep your natural at your root, and it will be painted and toned to gradually lighter at the ends. This is one of the best ways to add dimension to a blonde. Your hair can be styled straight, but curling will show off even more dimension.
#6: Gorgeous Ombre with Icy Blonde Ends
Try a gorgeous ombre with icy blonde ends if you’re tired of your hair feeling drab and flat. Naturally, black or dark brown hair may take a few sessions to achieve an icy blonde tone, so ask your stylist what they think would be best during the transition phases. Keeping the top of your hair your natural color will make it easier to lighten it at future appointments and give you that contrast you’re searching for without fully committing to icy blonde all over. Finish your hairstyle with wavy curls and gently comb with a wide-tooth comb after the curls have cooled and set, hairspray, voila!
#7: Flawless Brown to Blonde Ombre

#8: Dark Blonde to Light Blonde
The dark blonde to light blonde color melt creates a masterpiece full of class. This entire hair idea turns out to be one of the ideal ombre inspirations for blonde hair. With its stylish result, the lady who wears it will look beautiful without trying.
#9: Blonde to White Blonde Ombre Hair
This white blonde to light blonde ombre was dyed into an icy vanilla blonde. Find a colorist who specializes in natural hair blondes. Don’t think there are only a couple of blonde tones like golden blonde or an ash blonde hair color. There are so many tones in between – baby blonde, vanilla, creamy, wheaty, beige, sunny, caramel, butterscotch, apricot, pinky, rosy, etc.
If you go ashy, it would make your skin look shallow, or you would appear to look older. That said, if you have pinky/golden undertones, you would be best with a more baby blonde or beige blonde, or do what is happening in this picture – beige on the top that slowly transitions to a baby icy blonde.
#10: Black to Dirty Blonde Ombre Hairstyle
The best thing about this dirty blonde ombre is all the dimension that seamlessly blends. It’s a lived-in natural, tone blonde that melts from the natural roots. Ask your colorist to cut your hair first, then paint it in bright pieces that pop.
Use the Framesi color-lover purple shampoo once weekly to ensure it doesn’t get too brassy. The Amika Kure shampoo & conditioner is for daily use because it is sulfate-free and full of moisture. It’s a very low-maintenance color (you usually go into the salon every 3-4 months).
#11: Ash Blonde Ombre on Brown Hair
This is a dimensional ash blonde ombre balayage. The panels of hair were painted using a clay lightener. The tonality and how all the colors blend seamlessly into one another create this beautiful ash blonde ombre hair. Making ombre hair blonde is so universal and can be done on all different hair colors and types. However, it can take multiple sessions if you’re looking to go this light from darker hair.
Brown and blonde ombre is very low maintenance, so it is good for women who have a busy lifestyle and aren’t looking to come in every 6 weeks for touch-ups. Because the hair is lightened, use a good moisturizing sulfate-free shampoo and heat-protecting spray when using hot tools.
#12: Natural Black to Blonde Ombre
Natural black to blonde ombre is amazing! In this photo, the hair was bleached balayage on the black hair then toner was used with 9n + 9v + 9t (Redken shades). Use purple shampoo every time you wash your ombre hair. It will take the yellow out and make your hair blonder. If your hair is curly and thick, get a keratin treatment regularly to make your blonde ombre hair smoother and shinier. Also, use a deep conditioner.
#13: Blonde Balayage Ombre
This blonde balayage ombre is a melted ombre. Ask your colorist to blend your natural hair into bright blonde ends to achieve this blonde. This will create a soft transition. If your hair is level 5 naturally, you shouldn’t need to tone your ends. This may create a warm honey-blonde ombre.
Use purple shampoo to enhance your natural hair color with low maintenance brightness. This will brighten up your blonde ombre. The purple shampoo will also keep you from frequenting the salon to be touched up again.
#14: Bleached Blonde to Dark Brown Ombre
This is a medium to dark reverse balayage. Two different colors were used; one only a few shades darker than the natural color and the final color at the very ends at least 5 shades darker than the natural level. The coolest thing about this ombre hair is how the blonde blends into the dark color. That’s always the key with any balayage, blend blend blend!
This ombre is for any natural blonde who doesn’t want to color their hair fully. This is a great way to try something new, express yourself through hair color, and only partially commit to coloring. It’s still an easy fix. Just trim the color off. Women with thinner blonde hair could try this and find that this look adds dimension to their hair and can even make it appear thicker.
