You've heard of sombre, ombre and bronde and now there's a new word to add to your hair colour technique vocabulary. Introducing "sonde" – AKA icy silver blonde.
What is "sonde" hair colour?
The latest hair colour trend everyone's talking about is "sonde", a hybrid mix of silver and blonde that puts a chic and contemporary twist on white or platinum shades. The hallmark of this look is that in certain lighting, sonde looks like elegant silver, while in others it gives off hues of cool icy blonde. Either way, sonde is always a surprise!
Why should I choose sonde hair?
Considering experimenting with a daring light hair colour? If earl grey or platinum is a step too far you then sonde is the perfect compromise. The unique shade is modern, yet has a vintage edge to it thanks to its old world Hollywood platinum base hue.
How to care for sonde-colored hair
All coloured hair requires extra care, but this is particularly important with sonde coloured locks. Any colouring techniques that requires lightening can dry out the hair, resulting in frazzled ends and flyaways. To prevent this, introduce a weekly hair masque into your haircare routine: we love the Vitamino Color A-OX masque by Serie Expert, which nourishes coloured, damaged and weakened hair.
How to style sonde hair
Embrace the contemporary nature of the sonde shade by teaming it with a modern sleek bob and dramatic bangs. Lightly feathering the ends will prevent the cut from looking too severe, while also giving it an almost fairy-like finish. A bob hairstyle is also a fantastic choice because it shows off a long neck and draws attention to the face, making it flattering on a range of face shapes.
So will you be taking the icy sonde plunge this season?
