What type of blonde is right for you?


Blond hues are virtually endless: platinum blond, ash blond, honey, golden, with cold or warm shades! You really do need a guide to understand which type of blond would be more suitable for you: here are a few tips.

Have you ever wondered which kind of blond suits you and your personality best? By choosing the perfect shade – warm or cold blond – you could enhance your complexion. And by “adjusting the volume” of your blond – from the humblest of ashes to the bluntest ofplatinum – you can touch all the strings of your heart. 

So, what kind of blond are you?

Ash blond, natural and low maintenance 

It’s a very natural and simple shade of blond, easy to wear and to chose for a new look. Ash blond is perfectly suited to cold skin undertones with a low contrast with the intensity of the eyes.  

Caring for it at home is also easy, because ash blond doesn't really suffer much from the loss of shine which instead affects other bolder blonds. To add more shine, we suggest applying an oil or another styling product with a shimmering finish.

On the chromatic scale, ash blond often sits on the borderline with light brown. However, the two shades shouldn't be confused, and your trusted Davines hairdresser will be able to guide you in choosing the perfect colour!

Blond hair with highlights, to add more shine 

If you start from a light colour base, highlights are an excellent solution to make the shade brighter and more vibrant.

The result is reminiscent of the typical summer effect on your hair, but thanks to the bleaching done by a professional, you can get this effect all year round.

Highlights are perfect both for the warm and for the cold shades of blond, so let your imagination run free.

Moreover, they help cover grey hair and could be the starting point in a transition towards a lighter shade, even from brown hair.

Degradé blond with dark base

Over the last few years there has been a flood of requests to bleach hair ends. This way, the root stays darker and it is easier to manage the regrowth. 

The degradé is suited for medium length or long hair, because it allows an easy management of the chromatic change.

Partial bleaching of the hair could be more or less bold, marking either a strong or a weak contrast between the base colour and the one of the lengths.

It is especially important to care for extremely bleached hair, by periodically applying a nourishing mask and using a rich conditioner every time you wash your hair.

Bleaching and blond dye: ask a professional!

Blond is a favourite amongst movie and pop stars, who choose it to express various aspects of their femininity. Some of the most memorable blonds are the sophisticated shade of Grace Kelly, the more sensual blond of Brigitte Bardot and Marilyn Monroe, and of course the irreverent pop blond of Madonna.

Because it is so versatile, blond is also one of the most sought after colour. If you are considering a radical new look and bleaching your hair, ask for the advice of a Davines hairdresser!

Bronde, the marriage of blond and brown

Even women with chocolate hair have dreamed to become blond, at least once in their life.

Many of them were able to turn this dream into reality by starting - slowly - with a dark blond or a “bronde”.

The word “bronde” is literally the fusion between the words brown and blonde. Even though the name is simple, reaching the perfect "bronde” for every woman is far from easy.

In order to get a satisfying result, customised to the original colour, we highly recommend to avoid DIY solutions.

Honey blond, versatile and trendy

Ever so popular, honey blond can present many, often warm, varying shades. They go from copper blond to caramel brown, from golden blond to wheat-blond.

Honey blond offers the benefit of being very natural and low maintenance, making it the perfect choice to brighten up your hair without daring too much.

On top of that, it is a wonderful shade for women who like long, wavy hair and braids, since the reflection of the light on the different waving highlights the hues of honey blond.

Platinum blond, the coldest metallic shade

Platinum blond is a very bold colour, and it evokes seduction and rebellion. In order to obtain it, the bleaching process needs to be as deep as the original shade of your hair. 

This is why it is crucial to ask your trusted hairdresser, so that you can safely bleach your hair while ensuring you can take care of it at home.

For you treated hair to stay healthy, remember to use specific shampoos and conditioners and to periodically apply a restructuring and nourishing treatment.
