As the old saying goes: blondes have more fun. However, this season there's more than one fun way to go blonde! Here we compare two on-trend takes on the colour: gold blonde and wheat blonde.
The colour: Gold tones have been a hit in the fashion world and now the shade has transcended into the hair colour realm. The spring-ready hue is darker at the roots with gold highlights blended over a butterscotch tone through the lengths and ends.
The style: This luxe blonde shade adds a richness to medium to longer length hair. In order to show off the colour to full effect the hair should always be styled to perfection – a deep side part with luscious curls is a winner for work and play.
What the editors say: It's modern, it's bright and it's so hot right now. The rich gold accents put an original spin on classic blonde and the shade looks particularly brilliant on warmer skin tones.
The colour: Several blonde tones come colliding together to create this unique shade. In order to achieve a colour reminiscent of acres of wheat fields, touches of gold, tan and beige are added to the mix.
The style: This stunning neutral blonde is bound to have broad appeal. The colour would look completely at home tossed into a ponytail and paired with a casual t-shirt and denim shorts ensemble. Alternatively, it can be dressed up with some gentle waves and a sexy dress.
What the editors say: The magic words to tell your colourist are "subtle baby lights". This hair colouring technique will avoid the dreaded stripy effect and ensure the final outcome is a blonde tone that blends together seamlessly.
