A quick Google search would tell you that there's almost as many variations of blonde hair as there are fish in the sea. But don't let those options scare you away—just think of it as having a ton of colors that could suit you! That said, we get how important it is to narrow down your choices to the crème de la crème. Spending that much time with bleach on your head should feel worth it, after all! So, we rounded up a list of seven blonde hair colors that we've constantly seen Filipinas pull off. Who knows, your dream shade might be one of them!
1. Honey Blonde
Best for: Medium to fair skin tones
A honey-hued blonde is a shade that toes the line between a yellow gold and a light brown. It's one of the warmest blondes that you can try, and you've probably seen it on Beyoncé and Gigi Hadid. Filipinas with a medium skin tone would love the vibrance that this hair color can provide (a light honey would suit you best!), but we think fair skin that wants a sun-kissed finish would absolutely rock it, too!
2. Ash Blonde
Best for: Skin with warm/golden undertones
If honey blonde is ultra-warm, then ash blonde is the exact opposite. It's a cool-toned, almost light gray color, perfect for going as far away from a brassy shade as possible. Anyone with golden undertones will love this hair color for a flattering warm-on-cool contrast that'll make you look like you spend most of your days at the beach.
Tip: To keep your tresses within that cool ash spectrum, incorporate a purple shampoo into your routine to combat the brassiness.
3. Buttery Blonde
Best for: Any skin tone
If you're not sold on being a honey or ash blonde, maybe you'd love something in between like a buttery blonde. For this shade, it doesn't matter what your skin tone is, because it's neither too warm nor too cool but definitely light enough to give you a strong pop. And because it's a subtle, buttery hue, it's less likely to make you look overly pale or clash too much with the yellows on your skin.
Best for: All skin tones
Bronde, or brown-blonde, is by far the most beginner-friendly way to go blonde. Being a fusion of the two colors, it gives you the experience of a lighter 'do without going all the way to platinum. It doesn't stray too far from your natural brunette tresses either! If you're after a low-maintenance look, incorporate it into an ombré or balayage look. You can also opt for blonde highlights over a light brown base color for that sun-kissed, doll-like vibe.
Tip: Still a bit hesitant to bleach your locks? Try colored hair extensions that can last for up to three months! Celebrities swear by it for an instant makeover.
5. Platinum Blonde
Best for: All skin tones (depending on the shade)
It may not be for the faint of heart (or scalp), but there's a type of platinum 'do for everyone. Fair skin, for example, should go for a platinum with a subtle golden sheen instead of a flat white to prevent looking washed out. Warm-toned complexions, especially those with a deeper skin tone, would look great with an icy platinum for maximum contrast!
6. Blonde Chunky Highlights
Best for: Light medium to deep skin tones
The rise of the Y2k trend inevitably brought some '00 hair favorites back into everyone's radar—chunky highlights being the most popular by far. Compared to regular highlights that champion a seamless blend, this look is all about having literal chunks of hair in distinctly different colors. And as odd as that sounds, it's actually a cool way to switch up your average bleached 'do.
For tan-skinned beauties, pairing a warm brown base with ash or beige blonde chunky highlights is foolproof. Mix in some money piece highlights on your front section while you're at it to create a cool face-framing effect! Not a fan of brown? Go for bleached chunks over jet black locks instead.
7. Strawberry Blonde
Best for: Skin with neutral tones and fair skin
Strawberry blonde's distinct golden tone sets it apart from the other bleached hues above. It can be interpreted in different ways, from a beige blonde to a vibrant peachy-pink that really captures the "strawberry" part of the name. You'll love it if you can't decide between being a blonde or a redhead! When it comes to choosing your shade, though, keep your complexion in mind—a dye job this golden tends to look more flattering on those without much warmth in them to start with. This includes neutral skin tones, and those with very pale skin that'll benefit from a light golden pop.
