7 Trendiest Shades Of Blonde That You’ll See Everywhere This Year

Take it from a former blonde gal, yes, they do have more fun, but they also spend a lot of time (read: money) maintaining them. You want to change it up without undoing all the hard work and time, or completely ruin your hair. Well, the good news is that we talked with the person responsible for Kate Bosworth’s perfect platinum and Elizabeth Olsen’s golden locks and this is what she had to say.

 

1. Icy white blonde

 

Yeah, you guessed it, icy white hair is still trendy in 2019. However, if you want to avoid getting a buzz cut, here’s what you need to do to get it right according to Nicola:

Discuss with your hairstylist what you want – how blonde you want to go and whether you’re willing to change the shape of your hair. Bleach damages your hair so a lot of the time you might need to cut a decent amount of hair off to keep it looking healthy.

2. Yellow blonde is also in

 

Okay, Cara Delevigne and her crew have brought the icy blonde hair back, but don’t you undermine the growing presence of the underground blonde trend that is going to be big in 2019. Yellow blonde is back! As Alex Brownsell puts it:

It used to be about getting your hair whiter than white because it was so unattainable. Golden shades with warmer tones all over is the new platinum.

And the best news about this, as Alex says:

If you’re naturally fair-haired ask for a high lift tint from your hairdresser instead of highlights or bleach. It’ll have a less dramatic effect at first, but wait three months and it’ll get lighter, whereas bleach gets duller. I call it the ‘no bleach-bleach’ and it’s what I do to my own hair.

This hue is achieved by using BLEACH London’s Bold As Brass Super Cool Hair Colour for only £6.

3. Cream soda blonde

 

This baddie that is between blonde and brunette, is the brainchild of the LA-based hairstylist, Sunnie Brook. Talking to Refinery29, Brook described that ‘Cream Sode’ is the shade that all her celeb clients are asking for. The best part of it is that it makes your face look better, as the golden highlights have some kind of a brightening effect. Simply put, you can nail those Monday morning selfies.

4. Toasted coconut blonde

A US colorist, Ami Rexroth, spoke to Allure and said of the hue:

It’s a very rich, dark root that softly transitions and melts into blonder ends

This one is very, very low maintenance, as the more your roots grow out, the toastier your blonde gets. All you need is a silver shampoo to keep the ends icy white and voila.

5. Semi-permanent pastels

 

In case you’re wondering why rainbow pastels are still going, it’s because they look awesome! According to Nicola:

Once you’ve got your blonde, why not play with semi-permanent toners to get different pastel colors. As long as your blonde isn’t too yellow, you can pretty much try whatever color you like.

And if you dread going to the salon, or if you’re a do-it-yourself kinda gal, here’s how to get it right:

To get a bespoke color that lasts, squeeze a big tube of cheap conditioner into a pump and add drops of your chosen colors, then mix together and keep adding color until you’ve got the shade you want. It’s exactly like mixing icing.

Continuing:

Then keep it in the shower, and once a week use that instead of your normal conditioner to boost your pastel hair when it starts to fade or bleached blonde hair a rainbow overhaul.

Once you get them, here’s how to keep them on point:

Avoiding blue and green tones if you don’t want to commit. They’re almost impossible to wash out and the only sure fire way to cover them is with straight up red dye. You’ve been warned.

7. ‘Smoked marshmallow’ blonde

 

Low-maintenance fans, rejoice, as this is the ideal blonde shade for you. A mix of smokey dark blonde and creamy pale sections with grown out roots as imagined by the California-based colorist, Megan Martinez, is seriously easy to keep it looking like you just came out of the salon. Martinez spoke to Allure and said:

Sometimes you don’t have time to upkeep your roots, so when you have a beautiful blend you have a little bit more leeway.
