Bronde hair is exactly as it sounds. Not quite blonde, not quite brunette – it’s a beautiful, natural shade that sits somewhere in the middle. If you love the natural look, this is the colour to go for. It looks beautiful in every style, from short pixie cuts through to long flowing tresses, and it looks just as good tied up as it is fully styled.
It’s popular amongst celebrities, with the likes of Giselle, Lily James, and Gigi Hadid embracing the bronde for a naturally beautiful look.
Why Should You Go for Bronde?
Bronde is brilliant for a lot of reasons. Firstly, it’s warm and flattering, ideal if you’re feeling a bit dull and drab and need a lift. It’s also a great alternative if you usually go for blonde and your roots are starting to grow out.
Your stylist can work with you, looking at the natural colour of your roots to determine the most flattering shade for you. If you’re feeling a bit flat, this is a really low-key way to change up your look.
Plus, it’s ideal if you can’t get to the salon too often. Blonde hair is notoriously high maintenance, but you won’t have to keep coming back for touch-ups as often as you would with a full head of highlights.
It’s also an excellent introduction to the world of hair colouring if you don’t normally dye your hair.
Are All Brondes Made Equal?
No, there’s a bit of variety here. You can go for lighter shades of blonde with just a hint of brown at the roots or go for a deeper shade of true ‘bronde’ through the entire length of your hair. There are many possibilities, so it’s worth chatting to your stylist to see which colour suits you the most.
How Do I Take Care of Bronde Hair?
As we said, it’s low maintenance: you won’t have to worry about coming back every six weeks for touch-ups. You can just come back when you feel you need a refresher.
Other than that, bronde hair can suffer from the same problems as blonde highlighted hair – any kind of dye can cause damage, so it’s essential to treat your hair to a deep conditioning treatment once a week. Go for a hair mask or hair oil once a week – even leaving it in for five minutes can work wonders.
Look for dye-friendly shampoo, too. Some harsher shampoos can strip your hair of colour, so it’s always a good idea to check the label to see if your current shampoo is going to be suitable.
Finally, as always, it’s a good idea to use heat protection spray. Every single time you use a heated tool. If your hair is feeling a bit dry and frazzled, this is an absolute must to stop your heated tools from causing more damage to your hair.
