Bronde is turning out to be the biggest color trend of summer. But bronde isn’t a one-hue-fits-all trend. It’s actually a spectrum of shades ranging from buttery caramel to smokey taupe. The term also covers a variety of placements: a single shade, a subtle fade, or a dimensional blend. The looks above illustrate a few possibilities; click the style notes for more inspiration. –– Laura Martin
