    What would you get if mixed blonde and brunette? One of the biggest trends of the moment, bronde hair, apparently.

    A hybrid of the two classic shades, we’ve now moved on from ombre hair and dip dye as it’s all about the more natural-looking, all over bronde.

    With the darker tones of brunette playing off the lighter blonde hues, bronde hair is perfect for those who can’t commit to one colour or the other. And why have one when you can have both?

    But what exactly is the colour? Think that middle range shade as seen on Cara Delevingne, Gisele Bunchden and Behati Prinsloo… basically, the supermodel’s favourite hair shade circa 2015.

    It’s not quite brunette, not quite blonde and looks as though the sun has naturally lightened it, so forget about having streaks that are noticeable. The idea is to look like you just spent a month chilling out, sunning your hair on an Italian beach (we know, if only).

    While we’d probably all say that we prefer balayage these days, bronde hair was so popular because it perfectly highlights your face and gives your hair more dimension. The overall effect is that it looks thicker.

    Bronde hair also makes for great top knot or bun hairstyles, because the colours mix in together for a beautiful spiral effect. And if you’re a fan of hair extensions, it makes it easier to find a colour that will work with what you’ve already got.

    We’re guessing that you’re already pretty sold on getting this colour next time you visit your hair colourist, but just in case you needed any more persuasion, read on for the most amazing celebrity bronde hair looks to take with you.

    Because who said you had to choose between being a blonde or a brunette? Certainly not us.
