Bronde is trending for summer and with good reason; it’s like blonde but shinier, less damaging, and easier to wear. But if warm hues don’t flatter your skin you might be afraid to try this color.

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.
