Blondes having more fun

Whether it’s a DIY do, or you’ve been to the salon, blonde locks are big news for late summer. Choose your shade inspired by these celebs…

Kaia Gerber is a natural brunette, but her DIY lockdown bleachy bob really does suit her. If you want to go peroxide blonde, the best bet is to visit your local salon. This dramatic look dresses up casual outfits, and it can be slicked back and paired down when you’re dressing up. Keep your lips neutral and eyes strong, whatever the occasion, and for the highest drama, pop on some neon: you’ll stop traffic.

Adele looks happy, relaxed and gorgeous with warm, honey-blonde locks and beach-ready waves. This look suits natural make-up and well groomed brows, but when you’re adding a colour palette, look for warm tones: orange, hot pink and caramel are all worth experimenting with. Plum lips and golden highlighter also work well with this shade of blonde – and a killer jumpsuit makes warm blondes ever happier!

Gwyneth Paltrow first revealed her ‘gronde’ look at the Golden Globes – ever an early adopter! The low maintenance style – natural grey roots and blonde highlights – lent itself perfectly to the lockdown. As well as allowing Gwyneth to age gracefully, this style creates the impression of strength, elegance and maturity – and it’s affordable to maintain. Try it with floaty maxi dresses (floral prints add summer glamour) and shorts-and-tee co-ords for a playful twist.
