Silvery Blonde Hair

Q&A with style creator, Florentina Marciuc
Hairstylist @ Ego Studio in Cluj-Napoca

How would you describe this look?

This very long silver-blonde hue is one of my favorites. I adore seeing a bright blonde which catches the looks of everyone.

Any advice for someone considering it?

The fading process is irreversible and can be aggressive with hair, but you can make sure your hair looks flawless if you follow hair stylists’ advice.

Stylist @ Musk Hair in Northbridge, Western Australia


How would you describe this look?

I love this long, white blonde hair and color on my client! She is lucky to have such amazing hair which lifts so well, and she is a natural level 6. We used Wella system and professional products for coloring and care.

Long blonde haircuts are great when you give them a twisty blowout and textured cut. It gives an effortless style with an undone beach wave. I love this look on most people – done hair but also slightly undone!

Any advice for someone considering it?

With the right products, education, and care, you can achieve amazing colors to suit your hair whether it is high maintenance or low.

For this color, you need the best products, regular toning, and you also need to have your highlights regularly done about every 8-10 weeks.

Caramel Blonde

A trick to boost your brown hair is with sweet caramel blonde highlights that are perfect for brightening your whole look. A soft ombre like this can create a smooth transition through your long waves and make them look sun-kissed all season. This is the perfect hairstyle for women with long thick hair.

Buttery Golden Blonde

Q&A with style creator, Melissa Galich
Hairstylist @ JoDavi Salon in Trumbull, CT


How would you describe this look?

It’s a rich buttery golden blonde balayagelight brown root color blended with baby lights and balayage to create a seamless look from top to bottom.

I️ love the rich tonality and dimension of the long blonde hair. This gives her the ability to wear It naturally straight or curl it, and the color will just pop.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Straight hair which is fine to medium would be more ideal for this look. A coarser texture would not achieve the same results and not look as good on a day to day basis.

A blonde balayage can look good anywhere from 12 weeks to only have to get it done twice a year.

Champagne Blonde

Q&A with style creator, Alyssa Murph
Hairstylist @ Salon Gioia in Staten Island, NY


How would you describe this look?

This is a champagne pop! This type of long blonde hair color with loose waves is my personal favorite because it has some good ol’ traditional highlights around the face, but still has the balayage/rooted look with what I call a “shadow root”.

I match my clients natural base color and drag it down just a bit with an opaque demi-permanent gloss for a more natural effect. Top it off with some beach waves, my go-to style for the summer. These long blonde tresses are easy and effortlessly beautiful!

Any advice for someone considering it?

Please keep in mind that getting to this shade of blonde can be a process! Especially if you have a build up of previous colors in your hair. It takes patience and a lot of TLC to maintain health, long blonde locks. Make sure to always keep up with your haircuts (even if it’s just a baby trim!) every 10-12 weeks. Using the right products at home is super important.

All Over Platinum Blonde

Q&A with style creator, Julie Holbrook
Stylist @ Ave Salon Fashion & Bridal in Ogden, UT


How would you describe this look?

This is an all over blonde for long hair. I placed the bleach/lightener on the scalp so the grow-out line is going to be a little more intense than if you did highlights, but it gives you a more extreme blonde color!

Any advice for someone considering it?

You need to be dedicated to getting into the salon and getting this look touched up to maintain this style for long blonde hair. You need to plan to be in the salon every four to six weeks for touchups. Using purple shampoo in between services will help to maintain that white silver tone.

Classic Blonde Highlights

Q&A with style creator, Lauren Desautels
Level 1 Stylist @ Salon Bogar in Londonderry, NH


How would you describe this look?

This long hairstyle and blonde hue are seamless. The highlights flow right into the layering allowing the two to accentuate one another.

My favorite part about this look is that it’s so versatile. She is nice and bright, and the blonde is balanced out perfectly with the lowlight to allow the hair to show movement and depth. You can wear this look in any style (straight locks or wavy) and it will look amazing! A more straight/sleek look will give you an overall lighter effect, while wearing it wavy will show off the dimension and ribbons of color more dramatically.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This style is really great for most hair types, specifically fine to medium textures. I usually recommend coming in every 10-12 weeks for both the foils and the haircut.

For someone that wants to preserve their blonde and keep it bright, I highly recommend using a purple shampoo once a week.

Modern-Day Chamomile Blonde

Q&A with style creator, Megan Thomas
Stylist @ Furr Hair in Cape Town, Western Cape


How would you describe this look?

This is an all natural, modern-day long blonde hairstyle.

My favorite part about this look is that the client gets the illusion of extremely blonde looking hair because none of the ends were left untouched, but it’s still never low maintenance because I used babylights and a fading out technique at the top to make it very natural looking.

Healthy hair is my number one priority, especially when it comes to hairstyles for long blonde hair. With this look, we can see that the hair has stayed in an impeccable condition because it’s full of life and has an amazing amount of shine.

Any advice for someone considering it?

The styling of the hair is always important when it comes to this sort of color as it will always bring out the best in the color. A nice blow dry for movement or a few waves will keep the color looking up to date and extremely modern.

Women with a finer hair strands will benefit most from a look like this because that hair type can handle color best. It also helps make the hair look much fuller.

Neutral Ashy Blonde Balayage + Babylights

Q&A with style creator, Kendra Hamby
Professional Hairstylist & Makeup Artist @ Beauty by Kendra Hamby in Atlanta, GA


How would you describe this look?

This is a neutral ashy blonde balayage with babylights!

I did what I like to call “foilayage” on this client, which is just a combination of a full highlight and balayage. It’s the easiest way to brighten a client up all over and give them dimension. I love to use this technique for color corrections because it works great to break up an old color.

My favorite thing about this color is the dimension that it gave her natural level 7/8 hair. It brightened her up perfectly for spring!

Any advice for someone considering it?

Since this look does bring the brightness all the way up to the root, I’d say this is a higher maintenance color that requires six to eight week touch ups for most, especially those with a dark base/bright blonde contrast. I also tell my clients to come in after four weeks to re-tone and refresh their color between appointments!

Light Blonde Icing Balayage

Q&A with style creator, Taylor Range
Hair Designer / Colorist @ Belli Capelli The Salon in Andover, MN


How would you describe this look?

This is a long light blonde balayage! I love that it is natural looking and a very low maintenance color that can be tweaked and especially laid out for anyone.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If you’re looking for something that is easy and only needs to be touched up a couple times a year, this look is for you. Just keep in mind that it might take a couple of sessions to achieve the level of lightness desired.

Ashy Blonde Waves

Q&A with style creator, Ella Gjekaj
Hair & Make-up Artist @ FIAZ Salon and Spa in West Bloomfield, MI


How would you describe this look?

My favorite thing about these long ashy blonde waves was the effort I had to put in and the creativity I used to achieve the look my client wanted. She didn’t want the traditional highlighted look but wanted it to close enough so she wouldn’t have to come back for another three to four months.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Ensure you are using the proper shampoo and conditioner, use a blue/purple shampoo on the hair once a week to keep the color on the ashy side. I also suggest applying a heat protectant before using any tools in order to not compromise the integrity of the hair because it will be sensitive due to the lightening process.

Long blonde hairstyles look great with a beach waves and is a low maintenance color. That is probably my favorite thing about it.

Lived-In Golden Blonde

Q&A with style creator, Natalie Palomino
Stylist / Owner @ North Salon in Corona Del Mar, CA


How would you describe this look?

I love this color! I tend to specialize in blondes, and this is definitely one of my signature looks. Gone are days of mass foil highlights that deliver an unnatural, stripe-like look. We want to look brighter and softer, but natural, much like the natural highlights given to a little girl by the sun in summer.

This process definitely offers that look. This client not only wanted to have a soft and creamy blonde, but we were also working with grey coverage.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is perfect for most. It is economical because you can usually get away with three months or more between highlight services. The softer highlights and visible deeper root color leaves a ton of room and time for new growth.

It is important to know that the lighter you want to go, depending on your natural hair color, the longer it may take to achieve this light of a blonde.

If you are susceptible to warmth or yellowing of your blonde over time, I recommend using a purple shampoo and conditioner like Davines Alchemic Shampoo and Conditioner.

Lived-In Rooted Long Blonde Hair

Q&A with style creator, Allison Cole
Stylist @ Salon Carbon in Conroe, TX


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as a rooty, lived-in blonde with marshmallow, vanilla an platinum blonde hair color tones. I love how the shadow root transitions to the bright blonde ends and how healthy, shiny and reflective her hair is.

Any advice for someone considering it?

My advice for guests considering this look would be to make sure you’re prepared for the amount of time it takes to produce this end result. If it’s achievable, you’ll need to maintain the hair with professional products. The proper shampoo, conditioner, treatments, thermal protectants, styling products and tools protect the integrity of the hair. It can be costly, but is well worth the investment.

It’s also important to trim your hair regularly, especially if you want to maintain or keep your length. For styling this look, you just need a product with good memory, a thermal protectant, and a large barrel curling iron.

Bright & Dimensional Sandy Blonde

Q&A with style creator, Tara Weinberger
Stylist @ Fox And Jane Salon in New York, NY


How would you describe this look?

I love this look so much because it is so soft and natural. It maintains its brightness while still having plenty of dimension. You’re not sure if she’s just naturally that blonde or if she had it colored.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is for the girl who hates her roots, who wants to be really bright and blonde, but is low maintenance and doesn’t want to be in the salon every six weeks. The upkeep for this is about every three months. I used a mixture of babylights and balayage so that she has that brightness, but also still has the depth and dimension that will let her have a smooth and soft grow out.

Modern Dirty Blonde

Q&A with style creator, Courtney Bodger
Technical Colour Director @ Joey Scandizzo Salon in South Yarra, VIC


How would you describe this look?

This is a very modern blonde foiled look. We like to call it a lived-in blonde. Gone are the days where you put 1,000 back to back foils in someone’s head. Now it is all about the placement of the foils, where you put them and why. At the moment we are making the roots more natural and going slightly heavier around the face and on some of the ends.

I love the brighter hairline on this look and how natural the roots are. It will grow out beautifully for up to the next three months!

Any advice for someone considering it?

If you are an existing heavy foiled blonde client wanting to change your look to this type of blonde, you may feel slightly darker, but will actually look blonder with less maintenance and damage.

Healthy Ash Blonde

Q&A with style creator, Kyle James Engman
Hairstylist @ Studio K Hair Designory in Pasadena, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as a healthy ash blonde hair color. It is not quite platinum, but still vibrant and beautiful.

One thing I love about this look is all the possibilities since she now has the perfect canvas for any creative color. She loves how blonde we were able to get her, with very little damage. It wasn’t easy and it took several processes, but her hair is healthier and blonder than ever!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

As far as products to maintain the look, I suggested several products for her to help keep the integrity of the hair, as well as maintaining the tone. I suggested a moisturizing cream like Atlantis from R+Co. This can be used as a leave-in or a blow-out cream. She will also do regular at-home Olaplex treatments using no. 3.

Since she does like to flat iron and curl her hair, she uses a thermal protectant spray to give a little more security and prevent her ends from getting damages. The last product is No Yellow purple shampoo from Fanola. As she washes her hair, the toner will fade out, so I suggested that she lathers her hair with the purple shampoo at least once a week to help keep those beautiful ashy tones nice and vibrant.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look to anyone who is willing to use the right products, take the time out of their daily routine to make sure their hair is healthy, and isn’t afraid of change.

Being such a beautiful, ashy blonde can take a lot of maintenance. It has to be properly taken care of in order to keep it fresh and healthy once they leave the salon.

Lived-In Center Parted Blonde

Q&A with style creator, Baylie Cone
Stylist @ Platinum Studio in Orem, UT


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I am totally obsessed with this look we achieved! We were going for a lived-in blonde that was a little rooty, but still blonde enough around her face to make her feel really light.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Keeping this tone can be difficult if you aren’t using the right products. For shampooing, you should be using a purple shampoo once every couple of washes, followed by a very hydrating conditioner. Every other time you wash your hair, you still need to use a hydrating conditioner and a color-safe shampoo.

I always recommend an oil! Blondes can be very fragile and oil help keeps those ends shiny and strong. Gold Lust Oil from Oribe is incredible!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is my go-to for any college girls or simply anyone who has a busy schedule and can’t make it into the salon a lot. It gives them the grown out look, but is still bright enough around their face to make everything still pop.

French Vanilla Long Blonde With Layers

Q&A with style creator, Amie Jorgensen

Hairstylist @ Giuseppe Franco Salon in Beverly Hills, California


How would you describe this cut and color and what’s your favorite thing about it?

Her natural hair is frizzy and wavy, so for the haircut I wanted to give her long layers and a long fringe. In regards to the color, we wanted to achieve an effortless beachy blonde. The complexion of the client will determine the tone of the color that will be most flattering. For this particular client, I wanted to give her more of a French vanilla blonde to compliment her fair skin.

How could someone recreate this style at home?

1. Apply product to damp hair. I used Big Sexy Hair Core Flex Leave-In Reconstructor on mid lengths to ends. It is an amazing hydrating leave-in for processed color, especially blondes. I also used the Wella EMI Sugar Lift Spray for volume and hold.

2. Rough dry the hair until it is 50% dry. Then, using a nozzle to smooth the cuticle, blow dry your hair section by section, making sure you have enough tension to smooth the hair from the roots to the ends. Blow the hair away from the face to create volume at the roots and a bend on the ends.

3. Once the hair is completely dry, flip your head upside down and shake it out with your fingers for an effortless look. Use a flexible light hold hairspray to finish the style.

Which products would you recommend to help create and maintain this look?

I love the Ibiza B4 Blonde Extended Cork Brush for blowouts and Kenra Design Spray 9 for finishing.

Q&A with style creator, Debbie Chirolla
Hair Stylist @ OM Studio PR in San Juan, PR


How would you describe this look?

I describe these golden locks as bold and energetic. If your curls are this big and well-defined, you gotta embrace them! To get this kind of volume, you have to use products of lighter consistency, blow dry with a diffuser, and finish off with some teasing of the roots with a hair pick.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If you decide to get this haircut you have to consider the type of curls you have. Do not cut it too short because this cut consists of volume, and the real length of this girl’s hair is medium.

Waist Length Honey Blonde

No better way to sport your obsession for your locks other than this! Flaunt your waist-length honey blonde hair, and let yourself have the beauty of a doll.

Q&A with style creator, Sophie Carucci
Student Hair Stylist @ Summit Salon Academy in Tampa, FL


How would you describe this look?

It’s a very honey neutral blonde with some blonde dimension in it! My favorite thing about this look is how gorgeous and healthy her hair length is!

Any advice for someone considering it?

Use minimal heat to prevent heat damage. The problem comes from putting too much heat on your hair. Your hair won’t grow super healthy and strong if you do this! Anyone can pull off this amazing honey color because it’s very neutral. It isn’t too icy looking or too brown. It’s the perfect pop of color!
