Somewhere in between shades of blonde and brown, there’s bronde. Think light brown hair, mixed with soft blonde highlights to create deliciously warm, golden tones. Imagine it as like tortoiseshell glasses for your hair. It’s the perfect solution for brunettes who wish to explore lighter shades without committing to going completely all-over blonde. Aptly suited for those who are undecided about whether to go light or dark, it balances the best of both worlds.
There are two effective ways to create this universally flattering look. The first is using foils, the second by hand painting streaks, known as the balayage technique. Subtle blonde highlights that have been painted onto hair that’s naturally brown to begin with works best, as the reverse can run the risk of looking too harsh or stripy. Brushing colour onto larger sections makes the variations more intense than babylights, but less dramatic than ombre. Done correctly, it should blend in effortlessly with your natural hair colour as it grows out.
Bronde is also wonderfully easy to maintain. Inherently gradual and natural looking, bronde makes for an extremely low maintenance hair colour that requires minimal touch-ups, no more than a few times a year. Take your cue from the long line of A-lister’s who have adopted the honeyed-caramel tones, ensuring this stunning trend is here to stay.
