While we’ve seen hair color trends follow the menu at Starbucks over the years… hello “Pumpkin Spice” and “Horchata Hair,” and this time it seems as though Starbucks may in fact be taking it’s trend advice from hair! It’s latest release, the “Starbucks Vanilla Blonde Latte,” with a marketing message that states “Blonde (espresso) Breaks Rules” is giving us major #hairgoal vibes for the season ahead. In honor of blondes who break all the rules, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite shades that are swoon-worthy!
Blondes we’re on the rocks this year with icy-platinums and silver undertones. Kim Kardashian was among the early onset adopters but may be giving up her locks due to the intense upkeep. How to keep your platinum in shape? Incorporate a purple shampoo like KEVIN.MURPHY BLONDE.ANGEL into your routine, and finish with SHIMMER.ME BLONDE for extra shine!
While natural colors have been trending, highlighting techniques (like balayage) have allowed stylists to created eye-catching colors with a soft, blended feel. Ask your stylist for “surfer-inspired” hues and placement if you’re looking for dimension and drama with a natural vibe. To top it off, use label.m Sea Salt Spray to add texture and definition.
Cool tones may be taking the lead, but cool-warms aren’t going anywhere. Rose-quartz is the perfect example of walking your blonde along both of these lines. Not ready for the full (pastel) Monty? Try adding brightening up a face-frame or just the tips with a pastel shade. When you’re in the mood to show off your new shade, opt for a 1.25” curling iron to get the job done. We love the Sam Villa 2-In-1 Marcel Curling Iron & Wand, you can wrap it or clamp it based on the look you’re wishing to achieve.
