Most blondes have two, seemingly irreconcilable, goals: brightness and dimension. A blonde that achieves both is worth celebrating, like the icy shade recently adopted by Rachel McAdams. Her shade achieves it all by using a full spectrum of tones while staying within the same color level. In hair terms, this means alternating sections of cool platinum with beige, gold, and violet gray, all at a level 9 or 10. If done well the result is faceted like a crystal, expressing an overall cool tone flecked with reflective accents of other hues.

Dark blonde and light brown shades tinged with pastel hues provide a wide range of unique, but understated colors perfect for giving your strands a 2015 update. Chose peachy tuscan, warm buff, or pink-tinged raw silk. Pick a shade in a hue complementary to your skin tone for a flattering contrast.
