Blonde hairstyles for just about every tone of blonde out there

Blonde hair comes in so many different shades – so where do you start?

Thanks to the likes of Sienna, Gwyneth and co, blonde hairstyles never seems to loose their appeal. And whether you’re after Nirvana blonde, honey tones or bright white bleach blonde, there’s a style for you.

Not going anywhere right now is icy, cool-toned platinum blonde – a colour favoured by the likes of Kim Kardashian, who credits her locks’ shiny condition to the Olaplex hair treatment.

If you’re seriously considering going blonde – or you’re already there and need a juzh – there are a couple of things you need to know to get your look right. The first no brainer is to stock up on the best purple shampoo out there. For the rest, we quizzed hair expert Michael Kelly at Taylor Taylor London, who knows a thing or two about making the transition into the blonde world.

‘What’s current now (and forever will be) is hair that looks as though it’s been naturally sunkissed and leaves the untrained eye asking “has she or hasn’t she?” For blondes it’s all about that “lived in” colour that looks believable and not too contrived.

‘The key to great blonde hairstyles is to work with the natural colour on the parting to allow for an organic texture that doesn’t look stripy. Working a few pieces of finesse balayage (finer strands of freehand that creates pops of light) around the face can also give you that ‘halo effect’ that can soften skin tones and illuminate features.  This really is about making your colour work for you.

‘Grey hues are easy to maintain at home too just by using a silver-based shampoo and conditioner or, even better, by asking your colourist to custom blend a colour conditioner that’s bespoke to you. Remember the more often you wash your hair, the quicker the colour will fade so use your best best dry shampoo on your non-wash days to preserve those cool hues.’

So, without further ado, below we’ve rounded up the best celeb hairstyles covering the entire blonde spectrum.
