There's more than one way to go blonde in 2016. The question is, do you go bronde or deep blonde? Here we pit two of this season's hottest blonde shades against one another...
The colour: With hints of dark blonde, light blonde and brown, the hybrid shade known as bronde is absolutely luscious. The beauty of this colour is it can be adapted to suit either natural blondes or natural brunettes – all that changes is the colour of the highlights being added.
The style: There's something innately beachy about this colour. The blending of the highlights is practically made for summertime because the end result echoes a naturally sun kissed look.
What the editors say: Bronde is the current go-to colour among the style set – but the better reason to embrace this shade is for the sake of your long term hair health. Because this colour is usually within two shades of your natural hair hue, it means your hair isn't being put through the ringer to achieve the bronde finish.
The colour: What makes deep blonde so fabulous and unique is it treads a fine line between warm and cool tones, thanks to the use of both dark blonde and light blonde shades. The idea is to blend these highlight tones in with your natural base colour to create a dark and multi-tonal finish.
The style: This deeper flaxen hue may not have the striking impact of lighter blonde shades, but it more than makes up for it with cool-factor. The nuanced tone will look brilliant all throughout summer party season.
What the editors say: If you like the idea of going blonde but without loads of commitment then deep blonde is the perfect entry point. The darker hue means you can get away with fewer touch-up appointments and the grow out phase is gentle too.
